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.
