Good NZ Label media

Hi there I am on the hunt for media for my VP300! Im looking for a good transparent vinyl media that is a bit thicker than normal vinyl so its easier to stick to bottles and work with.

Im a newbee to eco solvent printers but excited to get stuff to work with and start doing label jobs for people.
