Control Panel Vinyl recommendation?
« on: November 09, 2017, 02:05:25 pm »
Hi folks,

I'm looking to buy a batch of plain, black vinyl. This will be to cover "modular" control panel components. Thus, just plain black, as want to be able to build these over time and cover them likewise. So, don't want to do any fancy graphics on the CP.

People used to recommend a particular vinyl from Pixelartprinting, but sadly they don't seem to do this anymore. It was a textured vinyl that was hard wearing.

So basically looking for the material name/type that I could buy in batch/roll and keep stored for when new "modules" are made. It needs to be tought and durable given it being a CP with no perspex overlay. Preferably textured to give it some interest. Preferably not gloss.

Any recommendations?

I just had my artwork printed from pixelart and went for the vinyl sticker with laminate, has a texture to it and feels quite nice.

I did consider their floor vinyl as i figured that would be hard wearing

Thanks. What's the texture. I always assumed this product would be a smooth laminate finish.
