    Hi all, I’m doing some standoff letters for a customers new office wall, his letters/logo is full colour, so my plan was to print the full colour on clear backed in white vinyl and applied to the reverse of the 10mm clear, but im concerned that the locators will show on the face once there bonded to the white vinyl, is there another method ?

    ANY REASON FOR NOT JUST PRINTING AND PUTTING ON THE FACE OF THE LETTERS?

    It looks kinda cheap & nasty compared to the 10mm acrylic, glass clear, polished sides with the print on the back

    As far as a solution.

    Pretty simple really. – put more layers of vinyl on the back.

    Watch what adhesives / tape you use, some can wrinkle the vinyls. Spread the load with vhb on pads then the locators.

    We back our reverse mount vinyl with 1 or 2mm forex – never had an issue before [emoji106]
