    Hi guys! I just printed a partial door wrap that Im gonna be installing without laminate. I can't remember who it was, but i read somewhere on here that I can spray some sort of UV protection spray onto the printed film once its installed? Supposibily the customer can spray it on every 2 months and the spray would protect it from the sun from fading and cracking. I think its made by 3m, but I couldnt find it, but I was able to find this on Amazon....

    Any help is appreciated!!

    Thanks!

    Why don't you just laminate it?

    The thing is that I dont have a laminator. I can outsource the printing work along with the laminate from B2sign, but at the moment I m outsourcing from another person for way less, but they only do printing and no laminate....

    ClearStar ClearJet is what you need. Spray it on before weeding or masking, let dry, then weed, mask and install.

    If I may suggest, Please use lamination. Real lamination. Your spray won't work. And if you plan on having a happy customer who wants to return... use lam...
    also - You're going to have some ripping during install if you don;t..

    For jobs in the future lookup signsbydale on here and pm him about a solution for laminating without a laminator. As for this project I would maybe even find another sign shop close by and see if they would laminate it for you. ClearStar liquid laminate would be my second choice.

    I think Clearshield would be the one to use on solvent ink prints.
    Clearjet is solvent based and might ruin the print.
