    I just got in some printable Scotchcal 3m Translucent film so i can get this lightbox i have been working on done. I was curious if I should laminate it with calandered lam to help protect the surface or leave it without lam. If it is compatible i think laminated it will help make the print last longer. Any comments or suggestions? Thanks i appreciate the help!

    I was told by my supplier to use the cast lam to laminate this product. It worked for me. :)

    Just because i have never used the printed translucent material doesn't mean i don't know how to do the job. I have used the regular translucent vinyl just not the printable kind.

    It takes you that long to get your supplies! lol ...I get mine next day most cases.

    :( that does suck man! Wish I could help you out. Any of your competitors rub elbows with you?? Buy some from them if you can.
