    A great selection of vehicle graphics Shane. Thanks for sharing mate.

    I saw in another of your posts you use 3M reflective, do you use that more these days?

    Asking because from memory, did you not use a lot of Oracal some time ago, or have I mixed you up with someone else!? 🙂

      Hi Rob. I use 3M680CR reflective as my go to product. I get my own 3M680cr exclusive colour manufactured too. That hurts the bank account when I reorder 🥺

      I don’t use Orafol product much at all now. We have Substance brand over here now which is my favourite poly product so that’s what I mostly use in that range, cast is usually Arlon SLX or Metamark. Hexis 190 series is another I use too. 3M cast is way too expensive here and my fleet clients are more budget-conscious these days. I used to be totally 3M but now pricing is more in the mix.

      Plus, a lot of our wholesalers have sold out to multinationals here, and the service and loyalty has disappeared so I tend to favour the smaller independent wholesalers that you can build relationships with. So my loyalty isn’t as much brand based as it is relationship based now.

      When Orafol HQ took over the Aussie operation, client relationships went out the window and now you are just an account number.

      I still have a good relationship with 3M but they have an issue with distributors locally since several multinational takeovers of the independent wholesalers, most having stronger relationships with Avery and Arlon so they aren’t that easy to find competitive pricing because the wholesalers are not discounting their 3M range to make their other product look more competitive. It’s become very political here in that sense.

    Buses are powerful!

    What perforated / contravision vinyl do you use?

    I used to use autovue but now I use a Hexis product that is as good but much cheaper.
