I wasn't sure how the adhesive vinyl would turn out but to my surprise I had nothing to worry about the adhesive is easy to apply and sticks firmly. When I switched on the lightbox the images were really amazing ,the colorful print is bold and eye-catching. I am certain our new restaurant will attract clients. I am very happy with their services and would recommend them to anyone looking for an online printer.
