Are any of you in need of affordable but lasting gator boards? I heard that this is one of the most popular durable substrates for poster mounting. I needed this for my business so my colleague recommended this printing center to help me with it and I could say it helped me a lot. The product was extremely durable and it is water resistant as well. Go check out their site through this https://www.digitekprinting.com/adhesive-vinyl.
