    New to window cling. Customer wants logo w/ lettering on clear cling (not white cling) so he can reuse. Problem is ...his logo has white in it and i can't print white. I was thinking about using regular colored cut vinyl and apply directly to cling. Anyone try this before?

    We have had trouble layering anything on static cling. It seems like the thermal expansion is quite different on the static verus the vinyl, so the sun makes it pucker and fall off.

    But, our primary use of static is on cars outside.

    I've had the same experience. Maybe just order them screened or printed. Stouse does them.

    I did one years ago that the customer used daily on the back window of a 2000 Honda Insight while parked. Those back windows are pretty much totally horizontal so it got it's fair share of direct sunlight. I used Avery white static cling with Oracal 651 opaque vinyls. Customer used this static cling sign for many years before relocating, never mentioned having any problems and he's the type that definetly would have said something if there was a problem.

    A Gerber Edge can print white on clear cling, or a solvent printer with a white print head could also.

    If you can't do the job; job it out to another local sign company that can. Add a bit on for your part of the work & make the customer happy.

    not sure i would do it that way! it needs to be printed correctly or you may get some come backs on it if it fails!
    fred on here is a merchant member with a edge, he can do it for you no problems.
