Plus comes in up to 4m widths. Was my secret material, but I've just spilled the beans...
Alot of people have been using bannergrade PVC but don't know anyone apart from us thats using the stuff for backlit posters. Contact your local screenprinters, thats what we did, and you may find they have offcuts. We got a few 4m x 3m size screens for free.Its also wipe clean
We also find that the screen printers will sell us the stuff at ?4 per m and also put in cater strips and eyelets for us.
looking to source three 8ftx6ft pieces of this, hemmed with eyelets. from what you were saying evo i was kinda hoping i'd be able to find some pretty damn cheap but i'm getting quotes ranging from £200 to £90, and the cheapest was through a friend of a friends shop. and that cheapest quote could only offer 8ftx5ft
anyone have any friendly sources for this, or put me in touch with someone who might be nice enough to do it any cheaper?
