Oracal 631 vs 651

Recommended Posts

I've been making decals for laptops and such with 631 and I'm thinking about switching to 651.  I know that it's more permanent and has a better hold but I was wondering what other peoples experience with this vinyl has been.

 

Thanks!

Oracal 651 is GREAT vinyl...can be used outdoors as well as inside,, Has more years of durability,  but most colors are glossy,  not matte like 631

Love IT! we use it for all kinds of things, it does have some minor shrinkage issues but it's still far better than 631.

651 is a calendered vinyl and any calendared vinyl will shrink due to the manufacturing process.

(it is stretched not cast) therefore it has somewhat of a memory and will shrink.

 

It probably shrinks quite a bit more in my climate than it normally would.  But over time usually not more than 1/16" - 1/8".

also depends on what it's adhered to and how much direct sunlight it gets.
