Avery

3M sued them because Avery was far better with their new product. 3M was still V1 and it all had that ugly waffle pattern and the 3M lam would feel like rice paper after 6 months.. I wouldn't use 3M until they came out with the V3 and it had been tested. Avery wasn't off the market very long though. I had no trouble getting it even when everyone was saying it was not going to be available. I have not had any silver issues with their lam except for it tends to shrink more than the vinyl over time. The silvering could be due to the type of ink or not letting it outgas long enough before laminating. I like using Oracal 290 lam on Avery and 3M. It is thinner, has a better gloss and weathers better but it is the most expensive.
