    Curious if anyone has seen a laminate like this?
    Calipers put it at around 17mil.
    It's textured. Kinda of like 40 grit sandpaper without the sharp edges.
    Looks like mini pebbles, so to speak.

    Thanks!

    Newbie question: How difficult is it to contour cut vinyl with laminate that thick? Can it be done with a typical print/cut machine? If so, what is the technique:

    Depends on your layout, but if you have a lot of sharp or acute internal and external cuts, you'll definitely want a tangential cutter with a 45 degree blade.
