    I'm going to be doing about 40 sets of doors for a company's vehicles. They will be digital printed and cold laminated in luster. I priced it low for them and they are applying themselves.
    My question is, should I put transfer tape on these or just send them a felt squeegee and let them apply.
    I think they go on fine with just laminate myself.

    Its quicker for them (one less step) and a lot less more time in production for me. I don't see much more benefit to the transfer tape if its already laminated. Am I missing something?

    Do they have previous install experience? When they screw it up and start talking to people, someone is bound to say it should have had tape on it.
    It takes only seconds to mask a door decal or am I missing something?

    How big are they? What shape are they? Will they be using a level or any ladders? Will they do a wet or dry application?

    18" x 16" and 10" x 9" Solid shape of a letter B. No ladders or level. Probably dry, but I think wet would work better and I could suggest that I guess.
