    I got a chance to bid on creating some wraps for vending machines. From what I see, mostly flat areas that don't light up. Just seeing if anyone who has done things like this has recommendations on a good film to use for a job like this. As always, any help is appreciated.

    I would probably quote ij180, but I'd reach out to the manufacturer and figure out what type of paint/coating is on the machines. The last set of ATM's we wrapped did not like either ij180 or 480, eventually we found out it had a special anti graffiti wet epoxy paint or some jazz.

    I did an ice cream freezer, the short wide ones you see in corner stores usually have a big nestle logo on it, with IJ180 about 2 years ago. The customer takes it to catering events so it gets some wear from the constant movement but it's still holding up strong.

    Thank you. That's 2 for IJ180, so doesn't sound like any fancy high tac vinyl is required.
     
  6. Quote it in high tack vinyl, then use what is appropriate once you test it.

    I've done 3 ice cream freezers and a soda vending machine. Used IJ-180 on all, and 3+ years later, it still looks great.

    I would also recommend using IJ180, but look for a scratch-proof lexan laminate if it is a flat surface.
