FAQs from our customers about reflective colors

Can I have custom reflective color? Like pink color, light blue, grey?

[Fuwong’s answer] if you need custom color like pink, and our order quantity is below certain MOQ about 50k pcs, the reflective film material supplier can’t make pink color reflective film for us.

If I need pink color for my order, do you have any solution?

[Fuwong’s answer] we have an alternative solution for custom color order of CUSTOM/PERSONALIZED license plate. But because custom color processing cost is much higher than the 6 original colors, only SMALL quantity order is accepted.

What’s the difference of Original reflective film color and Custom one?

[Fuwong’s answer] original reflective color is the reflective film color printed by the material supplier, after printing, they will cover a protective film on the printing, it can help defense the efforts to remove ink colors by chemical liquid.
And custom reflective color is the custom color printed above white reflective film, thus it doesn’t have protective film, and will be influenced by chemical liquie.

[Fuwong’s answer] without human efforts or chemical liquid to damage the custom color, it will stay for 7-10years.
