Second Surface Mounted Printing

Discussion in 'Digital Printing' started by TopFliteGraphics, Mar 23, 2020.

  1. I usually buy second surface mounted printed vinyl from Signs365. However, due to the current situation, they are not offering it (along with a host of other things) and my second source no longer offers it.

    Where can I buy vinyl with printing on the adhesive side? Or how do I do it myself with my HP315?

    Print mirror image on clear vinyl then laminate with white adhesive vinyl. pia, so we don't do it often.

  3. Sounds like a PIA. Where can I outsource it with signs365 no longer doing that work?

    Briteline (Grimco) has released a Perm/Rem clear double sided mounting adhesive. To be used with their Duratex PET material.

    Gen Form 106 optically clear. Lam it to the face of your print. Mount to back of acrylic. I generally use poster paper(cheap). If you need it to be water proof just lam the back side of the print aswell before you mount it.

    We were making some acrylic table tents and needed a cast product to conform to the bend. Did as Myron suggested, but didn't want to buy a roll of cast clear for this, so we reverse printed on Arlon cast laminate and laminated Oracal cast white vinyl to face of printed laminate. Wet applied the print to the acylic and it worked great. Just needed to lower temp to 190F at 8 pass our HP 560 to print on the laminate.

    Its no different or difficult than anything else. Its white vinyl in place of laminate, whats the big deal?
     
  11. See, this is why I ask questions. Lots of great solutions I had never heard of much less thought of myself. Thanks!

    The difference is...do you need flood or spot white?

    It can be back lam with white vinyl or flood coat of white ink. Either way works well....
