Hello all - I'm sure this has been discussed before so I'm sorry to be repetitive. I'm interested in producing wall decals (wordings and images). I hear Seramark is an excellent product - can anyone who has used it comment on the texture? By the description it seems to be more of a fabric than a slick vinyl look.
A lot of the print vinyls I've researched say not to print to the edge - I don't want a white releasee around most of this stuff. I see Oracal has a easy to remove cut vinyl product but I find the colours to be kind of limited. Any suggestions?
Yup, I'm a seramark fan! You're right it's not that slick glossy looking vinyl. When I used that it had curled so badly by the next day all of my samples had to be tossed. I didn't know that you couldn't print to the edge, but I had no interest in having a white border. Unless you are standing right on top of the seramark you can't tell that it has a fabric like texture. I use it inside, outside and it has held up amazing to this Massachusetts winter. Try it, you'll like it :-)
thanks for all the input guys,
Seramark looks awesome - I'm sure it will suit some purposes really well, I did hope to have options though especially for kids applications (wipe ability) - anyway I'll keep looking and let you know if I come up with any answers.
Has anyone laminated Seramark?
Hey guys - I'm still looking for a printable, repositionable (SP?) material for wall graphics. I got a sample of Photo Tex which prints fine and is easy to move around (and I can print right to the edge) but I can't pick it up with transfer paper.
Steven has tried to get me a sample of Seramark but is having shipping issues. I would like a Canadian supplier if possible because the shipping costs are killing me.
Any ideas would be appreciated
Muda, have you thought about contacting Seramark directly?Also bigsys.com
I haven't, Steven was trying to work something out for me regarding getting me a sample.
I got a whole roll of PhotoTex then discovered I couldn't pick it up with the pre mask I have -
the salesman hasn't gotten back to me with alternatives/suggestions or info about being able to laminate it.
Do you have experience with Seramark? Can you use a transfer tape/pre mask?
Muda , I have only worked with the samples I received. The things I printed I just removed from the carrier and placed, didn't have a need for masking. I did laminate some of the items with no problem. I don't actually see a need for masking since it is repositional material to start with and does not tear easily.
If vinyl is what you are looking for 3M 4300 is a new removable. I haven't researched it yet
I did the same just created 1 piece items which were easy to deal without a carrier but I am worried if I get an order for something with many pieces - it will have to be "rebuilt" each time it's moved.
What kind of laminate did you use?
I'm looking into Avery 2611 at the moment - I'll keep you posted.
