Loses Clarity Over Time and Not Completely Waterproof

A friend gave me a sheet of this to sample and I fell in love with the texture. Prior to using Oraguard, I was using a roll of textured matte laminate, but hated how it made my stickers curl from being on a roll. So I made the switch to Oraguard sheets. I went though two packages before committing to a 100 pack. So I was quite disappointed when I recently noticed one of my stickers on my waterbottle had ink bleeds from water getting under the laminate. I have a much older sticker with the laminate I used prior to Oraguard and it's just fine, no bleeding or loss of clarity.

Then I noticed discoloration on some stickers that aren't moving as quickly as others. The letters are supposed to be white, but looked blurry and cream colored. It was so off I had to check my art file to see if I had altered the file by accident. But nope. Freshly made stickers show the white letters. Running a test right now to see how long it takes for the sticker to lose clarity.

This is no fault of Creative Craft Vinyl. I just wanted to share my experience. I'm sad that I sold so many stickers with this laminate while telling people they are waterproof, so I will need to decide whether to move forward with the old stuff and save this stuff for other projects where it may not matter.

I love the texture (which is why I gave 2 stars instead of 1)! But sadly I will need to go back to the other brand for increased longevity and longterm clarity so I can confidently back my products.

Excellent, Once Again

Very quick shipping, great value, and very consistent size. I appreciate how quickly everything ships after I place an order, which usually occurs on a weekend. I love being able to get Oraguard at such a reasonable price!

very durable!

I love this laminate! It goes on so easy and smooth over printable vinyl. You can also really lay on the squeegee to apply it. I've had a couple of stickers go through the dishwasher and come out looking the same. I wanna try the glossy next!

Only works for a few months

I'm a small business owner and am getting messages now saying the stickers have completely faded :-( It seems to only last for 3 months outside.

This material provides a UV extension to the ink. If your ink has no UV warranty it has nothing to extend. We are sorry to hear that your customers are not happy. Please feel free to reach out with specifics about your process and we can get you a refund or replacement if the laminate is at fault.

Absolutely Amazing!

Both the glossy and matte Oraguard 215 laminate are precisely what I've been looking for. CCV has the best prices around and the fastest shipping as well. They're going to be my one stop shop for all my non-holo laminate from now on!
