    thanks, i didnt know if a thinner cast film would last and not peel or i should go printed for a thicker film.

    Well have had about 20-30 roll offs moving in & out of my yard daily.

    Premium vinyl was used colors used red / black / green on white roll offs and have held up good.

    Except red faded badly within 2 years... lol ( worse then paint ) lol

    Use a good quality cast vinyl rated for the life you want it to last.

    I've used Avery A6 before with no problem. The letters are still on 8 years later.
