Removable Vinyl

Oracal 638 vinyl is a soft PVC film vinyl that was designed for the graphic and signage industries. It is a leading brand of self adhesive vinyl which is great for crafting use. The vinyl is 80 microns thick and features a polyacrylate adhesive which allows for temporary adhesion onto a variety of wall finishes and surfaces including: wall paper, painted drywall, glass, acrylic, paper, metal, glazed ceramics, card and smooth plastics. It is designed to be easily removable from most surfaces without leaving a residue.

This is perfect for cutting on most vinyl cutters and plotters including Cricut, Brother and Silhouette. The vinyl is supplied on a backing sheet and needs to be applied to the required surface with a clear self-adhesive transfer sheet. Once the design has been cut it will need to be weeded before the transfer sheet can be applied and the design can be transferred to its final surface.
