Fantasy Films is a line of traditional holographic effect vinyl film. This vinyl has a smooth, even surface and is ideal for signage, displays, packaging, and labeling. This vinyl is a popular choice for cups, personalization decorating and race car graphic.
Outdoor Rating: Up to 5 year depending on sun exposure. When exposed to little sun, vinyl will remain bright. When installed on a horizontal surface and/or with a lot of sun exposure the vinyl will fade much faster and likely will not last up to 5 years.
For best results, apply dry.
Can also be used indoors for signage for girl's bedrooms. If you plan to apply to a surface that would potential be damaged when removed, we recommend first putting a removable adhesive vinyl down and then layering with the Holographic Glitter.
This vinyl has a "foil" type feel. It will cut and perform differently than other outdoor intermediate vinyls. We recommend doing a test cut before cutting your image.
NOTE: This vinyl has a tendency to "tunnel". Tunneling is where the vinyl edges will bubble up, or there will be what looks like pockets of air in between the vinyl and the backing.
This happens in all brands and all makes of specialty vinyl. It happens in regular gloss and matte vinyl too but it is very rare.
When the vinyl is wrapped around a certain object or rolled in general the vinyl will expand and contract. Then when the vinyl is unrolled it will contract but usually at a different rate than the backing, this causes it to "tunnel" or create air pockets. So, depending on your climate and how you store the specialty vinyl you may see signs of air pockets or tunneling.
This doesn't happen very often, but if you see tunneling or air pockets/bubbles slowly lift the vinyl away from the backing to release the air, then lay the vinyl back down on the backing. Be careful not to crease the vinyl if you us a squeegee when trying to remove the air.
