Sticker Media

Hi all,

I was just wondering what media you use for small (upto 75mm dia) profile cut stickers :?: .

So far I have used Grafityp's SPP self-adhesive water proof paper, I live the paper and the print quality is very good :) , but the problem is that it is on such a thin polyester backing that if your too heavy with the cutting the stickers drop out and if you too light you don't get through the adhesive making them impossible to use :evil: .

Your recommendations are most welcome...

Hi Mal,

Speak with the Grafityp boys if you aren't totally happy. There are plenty of good vinyls they supply that are not too expensive. Vinyl will probably leave a cleaner cut than paper as well so might give a more professional finish.

Hi Rob,

I woundn't say i'm not happy. I'm just looking for other opinions. SPP giveS a fantastic finish, the cut is good, but the carrier is very thin. J

ust looking for alternatives....
