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.
The vinyl itself is good however, the sticky label ruins part of it! It was hard to get off and left residue & bubbles. It wouldn't be so bad if it was just the edge but you lose a few inches due to where it sticks on the roll. I ordered three different colors and two of them were like this. The third one was wrapped in cellophane and the label was on the outside. On the inside, it was tapped together with masking tape which came off clean & easy. Pics attached for reference.
Other reviewers are right; sticker ruins several inches worth of vinyl on either side of the first flap. Had hoped they would remedy that after so many comments. Also, one of two rolls arrived completely smashed and unusable because it was shipped in an envelope. I love Oracal, and the quality seems okay, but I can't use it due to the damage. Will make my delivery late waiting on a replacement.
Oracle 651. Awesome product plain and simple. However, this comes taped together and you waste a good 2” of the vinyl, get 6” in and waste another 2” because of tape residue/vinyl unrolling because of you trying to remove the super sticky tape they use to put on it. Kinda disappointed that I paid for 6’ and the first almost 1’ was wasted.
I have purchased 651 before and never had any problems, but with this roll, something is up with the adhesive... almost like the roll was old and hadn't been stored correctly or something. I will keep it for home use, but use caution if you are using it for a customer.
This vinyl worked for what I needed it to but I would not repurchase. I needed the color to be a true white since I was using it for some of my wedding signs but the color has sort of a bluish tint to it. If you're okay with it not being true white, this product will work for you but if you do not want a blueish tint, I would pass on this vinyl.
The roll was smashed flat when I got it. I wanted to return it but I would have had to pay $5.99 just to return it. Very unsatisfied. That smashed part is hard to pay flat and causes wrinkles when you lay out flat.
I’m giving 3 stars because it is a good product. It would have 5 stars if I had received what I ordered. I ordered a 12in by 6 foot roll of white and received smaller 12in by 24 in sheets of 9 different colors. Waiting to hear back if I can have a refund or can get what I actually ordered and I will update my review.
I have not had a problem with orcal until now. Vinyl seems good but came damaged. When I buy something I except the product to not be damaged. There is no returns on this product so I couldn't return to get a new one. Disappointed. I see this happening a lot with orcal. Finally happened to me.
