*  Polyolefin is an improved vinyl material that is more flexible to use. Non yellowing, matte film that remove cleanly leaving no adhesive residue behind.
B) Select Gloss or Matt finish

   * Gloss is clear, transparent film that gives items shiny new look, allow graphic and colour to boldly show through.
