If you jump right into embossing without thinking ahead, it is going to be a nightmare for you when removing those pieces underneath. Here are a few things you should consider before creating an embossment:
- Type of the material
- Design of the embossment
Type of the material
For embossing, wrappers tend to choose calendar or reflective vinyl film. The former has a lower price point. However, the latter is thick and can be stickier. Thus, using a reflective film to create an embossment can help you get a distinct edge and make the design stand out even more.
You can remove a reflective vinyl with a suitable removal tool like a plastic scraper straightway. But because it is sticky, it will be very time-consuming, especially if you do not do it with the right skill. So you might want to use calendar film if you prefer a stress-free removal process.
Design of the embossment
Whether you use a calendar or reflective vinyl to emboss a vehicle wrap, it will take time to remove them completely. The more complicated pattern or design you have, the longer it will take to finish the job. Thus, you might want to think about what graphics or signs you need for the embossment.
If you tend to have an easier removing experience, try to emboss with simple designs, which does not necessarily meaning ordinary. Many of these designs are unique and stylish. And they will stand out in their ways.
These are several tips for the removal of embossments. Hopefully, they will help you achieve a better embossing experience.
