Cleaning Laminated Prints
Before you deliver prints to your customers, instruct them on the right way to care for their new graphics. That way they can never say that they didn't know because they were never told.
To clean laminated prints, use a mild, non-abrasive cleaner. The cleaner should be neither strongly acidic nor strongly alkaline. Do not use cleaners with a strong solvent.
In washing the graphics, use a sponge or soft rag. Vinyls are very soft plastics and hard bristle brushes will scratch the surface of the overlaminating films. Use a soft, clean cotton towel to dry the graphic.
