Calendered Vinyl vs. Cut Vinyl

Our two most common products for vehicles, signs, walls and many more are calendared and cut vinyl. How do you know which material is right for your project? We’ll help you decide!


Calendered Vinyl

Calendered vinyl is a removable 2 mil thickness film with an air egress technology that helps eliminate wrinkles and bubbles. Don’t let the word removable fool you, this film will last years! Its long term removability provides permanent adhesion, but removes cleanly. Calendered vinyl is popularly used for fleet graphics, floor graphics, opaque signage, smooth wall graphics, vehicle wraps, and watercraft graphics. This material only comes in white, but we can print any detail on top with its high gloss finish. Typically, we will laminate any printed media which will boost the life of your graphic and keep it weather resistant. Whether you need to apply this to a surface that is flat, has compounded curves, is corrugated or flat with rivets, this is the material for you!


Cut Vinyl

Cut vinyl is an opaque solid color high gloss vinyl film that is 3 mil in thickness with the broadest color palette in the industry for color reliance. This material can be applied to flat or simply curved surfaces and is designed to be used in a wide range of sign making applications. Its outstanding durability leads to a permanent hold whose color will last years! Cut vinyl film will remain through strong UV rays, hot and cold temperatures and humidity due to its acrylic based, pressure-sensitive adhesion. The most common applications for this material are trucks, trailers, cars, vans, boats, buses, architectural signage and durable decals.


These two materials have the same benefits, it’s just a matter of what surface you’re using and customization!
