Re: Here we go!

Just a update on my research on the decal film.If you sign up under dealer request information you qualify for bulk wholesale pricing on the xpel you can get the 12" value for $346.80 per 120 ft roll.that is $2.89 per ft.
I am also going to get a sample for a comprable product 8mil for $195.00 per 100ft.that is $1.95 per foot.I think im going to test that before I buy any.Ill let you know how it goes.P.s. im glad everyone likes the name!thats so awesome!

Just make sure that you do not need a resale certificate to buy at dealer/wholesale pricing.
:)
Matt had to use his.
(Correct me Matt if I am mistaken....if you see this)

Also, when buying at that special dealer price one will need to buy the whole roll. (not by the foot)

Is this what you were told? or am I mistaken again?


What is your comparable 8mil product?
Clearshield?


oh yeah...I like the name a lot! :)

Re: Here we go!

Yes I believe you would need a resale cert.Yes that is for the whole roll.Im going to hold off on giving the name of the decal material .... :)I also want to add that it will not require the das secret activator or rapid tac,it is real sticky.

Re: Here we go!

Well, the 8mil test rhinestone decal material that I received today is a product called Clearshield PPF.
Automotive | Paint Protection | ClearshieldYou will need a resale cert for them as well when wanting to buy at the best possible price, or one can click on their "dealer locater" link to buy at retail pricing.

I have heard that 8mil does not work too well, but I will test it anyway. :)
(maybe it was application error)

The Clearshield comes in 12mil also?
I did not know this.
I will ask my rep about it.
Thanks.


I do have some 12mil of this stuff but I have not tested it yet.
(totally different material so I do not think it will work)

Re: Here we go!

I will definately keep updating...but if you are looking to see if this is profitable all you need to do is look at matt,he has sold more than 500 decals in one month at 20 bucks a pop!
