5.0 out of 5 starsGreat for crafters and Cricut machine!
September 1, 2018
Used my cricut explore air to cut out this measurement chart with this vinyl! It was my very first time ever using vinyl with a cricut and I am in love! This vinyl is perfect for crafting with! The only problem I had was getting it lined up on the mat correctly because it just wanted to roll back up.
I’ve heard good things about the Oracal 651 which is why I purchased it. It seems to be good quality vinyl. My only complaint is how it was packaged, or the lack there of. The sticker and tape were attached directly onto the vinyl which got messed up when I try to remove it. So some Of the vinyl were wasted because of that.
not happy There is NO WAY this is 6 ft. Maybe 4 at most. You see that box on the picture description? well, that doesnt come with the vinyl. The roll was tightly wound which makes it very hard to stick to the mat for cutting. Super disappointed. This was for a job that I wont be able to execute on time. Hopefully the company will right this.
What I received was more like a very poor quality shelf paper. It was obviously cut from a much larger roll and was a few inches under the 6 feet that was advertised. It was vinyl but it had a sticky backing to it that stuck to itself very well but not very well to anything else which was fortunate because I ended up tossing it into the garbage. I would not buy this product again.
I received this vinyl in a very tight roll. Now I'm not an expert but vinyl will retain a memory somewhat. If it is rolled tight and I mean small and tight, it makes it very hard to work with. Also, about every 9in. there was a crease that went a third of the way across the width of the roll. The third problem was very difficult to weed. I even increased the cutter to hopefully alleviate that problem and still didn't help. I think I will order from a different company that handles and packages there vinyl with the end customers used in mind.
I like that it was easy to weed. I dislike that you cannot remove it from the Cricut cutting boards. As you can see by the picture, the backing will not come off without a lot of scraping. Even then, it’s small pieces at a time. Also, the sticker they use to secure the roll was stuck directly to the vinyl and left sticky residue behind. I had to use some elbow grease to get that off as well. While the product was a good price, I would not recommend it because of the extra work and time it takes.
I wanted to love this vinyl because it is so inexpensive for the amount you receive. Unfortunately, when I use it to cut images on my cricut it didn't cut very well and looks cheap. The corner of the roll was damaged as well, so I lost about 3 square inch of product before I even started. Would not buy again.
I purchased this vinyl March 2018 and made stickers for my car and by August they started chipping; now they look terrible! This is quite a disappoint considering Oracle boasts about the vinyl lasting several years outdoors when for me it didn't even last 6 months.
I bought this because I heard the Oracal brand was pretty good and they have a good value for your money compared to Cricut vinyl. I always read the reviews and thought this would be a decent product. I am so disappointed with this product. The vinyl backing stuck to my mat when I pulled it off and ruined the mat. I had to sit there and pick the backing paper off the mat, and some pieces I was unable to do so. Not only did I waste money on this product which I will not use again but I had to spend more money purchasing new mats. If I could return this I would.
This product was not even so when I would use cut settings for this product it would cut all the way through the back in some areas and then not through at all in others. It was terrible to weed out of four attempt to cut sheets I had one decal weed 100% how it was supposed to.
The vinyl I received does not adhere to the paper backing appropriately. Removing the negative space is difficult due to the fact that the remaining design does not want to stay on the paper backing the way it should. Also, when the sheet is removed from the sticky mat, the vinyl will wrinkle and fold in on itself.
I’ve used oracle in the past and never experienced any of these issues before. It’s possible I received a bad roll. Regardless, this recent experience was highly disappointing.
I bought a roll of glossy white vinyl and it cut horribly. Earlier in the week I had bought the matte black and liked the results. I am not sure why they cut so differently with the same project but I spent too much time and vinyl attempting to get the white vinyl to work. I will not be buying more glossy vinyl from this brand.
