Cut Vinyl Pros and Cons
Cut vinyl has several advantages. One of the biggest benefits is that it often lasts longer. Since the vinyl is pre-colored all the way through, it doesn’t fade as easily, making it great for applications that will receive a lot of sunlight, such as windows, outdoor signs, and vehicles. Cut vinyl also tends to be thinner, so it will conform better to different surface textures. Another huge pro of cut vinyl is the finish options. With print vinyl, you are limited to the finishes that ink can produce, but cut vinyl gives you options like metallic and fluorescent colors. We even carry special effect vinyl with kaleidoscope, confetti, and glow-in-the-dark colors.
While color can be an advantage for cut vinyl, it can also be a con. The pre-colored vinyl can be limiting if you’re trying to create a more intricate design. You can layer cut vinyl, but that is extremely time-consuming, and you might not achieve the same effect you can with print vinyl. Even without layering, cut vinyl can still be more time-consuming, so if you need to create signage fast, printable vinyl might be your best bet.
