    Had a customer come in and order some window perf graphics today, was wanting a "matte" look to the window perf he said the optically clear lam that I use is more glossy than he would like.

    I know if I do not laminate them it kind of gives them more of a matte look but I still want the durability with laminate. Any suggestions?

    Here's a dum answer, print on matte vinyl, or laminate regular vinyl with matte lam. And cut little circles. Have fun weeding lol

    It is going on a vehicle so I cannot just laminate with 290 Matte due to the fact it is not clear enough for window perf film. Wish it was that easy.

    Well your only options are no not lam it or matte lam it and since matte lam kills visibility then your only option is to not lam it.

    Honestly I have never used a liquid lam but am willing to give it a shot. Any particular brand you recommend?

    Clearshield does a matte.
    Never liquid laminated perf either, but there is a couple around here that do.

    this
    although, the downside being, the lack of sheet-lamination to pert will result in inhibited visibility when it rains or dirt/dust builds up in the perforations.
