Examples of what will happen if a lesser quality vinyl is used

Here you see how the vinyl peeled away from the adhesive (blue vinyl, grey adhesive residue shows original shape.) I spoke with the owner of this vehicle...the graphics were applied 8 years ago. This would never happen if the vinyl had been 3M premium fleet graphic vinyl! And that adhesive residue will most likely be impossible to remove.


Here we can see where the vinyl simply shrunk away from the adhesive. The original shape and size of the decal is shown in the dirty grey adhesive which is still sticking like SUPERGLUE to the surface. This will not happen with 3M premium vinyl for fleet graphics.


This customer had used this inexpensive vinyl for his van, and was faced with a very large removal fee, because the adhesive had bonded with the paint when the decals shrank and peeled back.
