    Actually it looks just fine if you wet app it. Assuming they have cad cutting capabilities, they can trim it virtually to the edge (say 1/16" or so) and the Client will never know.

    Why can't you just print it on clear mylar or vinyl (similar to 3m 3650-114 I believe) and stick it to the door? For that matter you could probably even use a static cling vinyl or low tack clear and...

    lol Andi it took me close to half that article to discern whether you were bitching or simply stating a fact. May not be your issue though, I didn't get much sleep last night.

    I go out of my way to mix ink without transparent colors in them so long run color shift is minimum. Typically our printers are pretty smart about how they use ink in that they'll add fresh ink once...

    As squeegee already said, harder squeegees don't put down near as much ink as softer durometer squeegees as they cut the ink rather than push it through the mesh. Also, squeegee sharpness and angle...

    It's not the Truckers that are complaining. In fact it's the Clients who order the least or are the hardest to maintain that seem to complain the most.
