Transparent Film review by Beth on 2/26/2016
I ordered red & black permanent metallic vinyl. The colors are beautiful & vibrant. My issue with these are that they are TRANSPARENT. They are more like a film than the solid vinyl I've purchased/used from EV. I used the red metallic on black bags with large white polka dots. The white dots were very visible. I ended up removing the backing on another red metallic sheet & placing it directly on a sheet of red oracle 651. I had a lot of bubbles that I tried to smooth out using the Cricut scraper. However, that scratched up the metallic finish. I finally used a thick soft doth & rubbing firmly in one direction. It didn't remove all of the air bubbles though. I contacted EV & explained the issues. I included photos of my ruined project. While they issued me credit to cover the cost of the metallic vinyl, the permanent vinyl & the ruined bags, I also asked EV to change the description that these are a transparent film. They haven't done this. If you will be using this transparent metallic film on something that is the same base color or on something white, it will work great. Otherwise I'm afraid you may be quite disappointed, just as I was.
