Slaps! Stickers with an Edge

Slaps! Stickers with an Edge

There are cool stickers, and then there are "slaps". This is the term given to sticker art that goes beyond the realms of mere graphics and into an artistic world, inhabited by mad creatures and bizarre characters. With eye-popping swagger, it draws from graffiti, street art, tattooing, surfing, skating and other popular culture.

Arlon Pro Tip: Shelf Life of Vinyl Film

Arlon Pro Tip: Shelf Life of Vinyl Film

The shelf life of vinyl film is primarily determined by a.) the amount of plasticizing oils which transfer into the adhesive coating, and b.) the sensitivity of the affected adhesive to plasticizer contamination when it is fully saturated or contaminated. To some extent, shelf life is dictated by product formula of film and adhesive but is also strongly affected by storage conditions at the distributor and end-user facility. A sign shop that keeps its film properly stored can expect to use it for significantly longer than the indicated shelf life with minimal risk, while an overheated or wet storage condition will invariably cause problems.
