Other suggestions :
1. Do not use the Opaque versions on glass,metal and vinyl – Please use the original versions
2. Do not cut the overlap when using UV inks and “Opaque” Photo Tex as you may see a white line from the
cutting. Opaque is a block-out intended to not have to overlap mid-cut and butt the overlap.
If you are using Solvent or Eco-solvent inks, then we do recommend a clear coat or liquid laminate when using outdoors or in high traffic areas. See installation and technical bulletin for more information.
Always liquid laminate Photo Tex with the liner/backer still on the material. If already installed then do not liquid laminate to the edges while on the wall as the liquid can seep around the edges and on the adhesive.
Some thin 1.5-2.0 mil Cold Laminate may work fine, but we recommend liquid laminating or clear coating.
Yes, you can paint or use magic markers with blank Photo Tex.
Yes, you can kiss-cut or contour cut the material with a high steel blade(carbide) or sharp blade. Slow the speed down some if needed and turn on over travel.
