Looking for opaque acetate

[Copy link]

Post time: 2013-3-4 06:59:59 |Show all posts
Hi all,
I am trying to help a customer of mine find opaque acetate sheets 12 mil for printing playing cards.  Any leads on a supplier will be appreciated.
Thank you.

Just received 8 different samples from Transilwrap and they look very promising.
Thank you!

You are correct. The mill that made Kimdura was purchased by the employees and renamed Yupo.
Yupo and Kimdura are the same sheet. Unisource carries Yupo and another product called Hop-Syn.
Hop-Syn has similar properties to Yupo at a lower price point. Both of these sheets are synthetic substrates, not really playing card material.
I found more information on a different Printplanet thread. Try these in your search.

I have not worked with either of these so you will need to do your research.
Hope this helps.

Turns out Kimberly Clark was purchased by Yupo and Kimdura is no longer availible.  I did however contact Transilwrap.  Thank you Heidleberg Guy.  They do not have acetate, but are sending me some samples of what they feel will be appropriate for cards.

On a side note, you should start acquiring a war chest of swatch books.  My company has cabinets filled with them, and they come in very handy.
