    Default the industries best hidden secret...

    Alright so I know printing stickers starts with Vinyl. Also I know that a lot of different companys use a Small Format Graphic Press from M&R, but couldn't it be done with a vacuum table or even just a regular table? What kind of gloss do you put over the top? What ink is used? How do you dry it? What cutters do you use?

    Thanks for everything in advance,
    Mark Forsman

    There is ONE critical step that you MUST use for great vinyl stickers. It's a trade secret that's only handed down from generation to generation.

    It's not cheap, but first, once you've obtained all of the stuff on the list I'll post at the end, you have to...

    who's there?

    Oh, hey Andy what's up?

    you're basically looking at about $30,000-$45,000 to set up a U.V. shop if you don't have any equipment.

    sub all your sticker jobs out to me. Theres a good handfull of otheer shops that you've probably heard of that already do.

    we print over 350,000 stickers a month, easily.
