Doro Tape - Responding to customers for 20 years

Dorotape’s range includes metallised and special effect films as well as silver and gold for vehicle wrapping. For nearly 20 years Doro Tape has been keeping a finger on the pulse of the ever changing vinyls market and responding to customers needs, with the result that the company now boasts a large portfolio of top quality vinyl for every job imaginable.

The most popular ranges of Doro Tape’s standard vinyl include the new, softer Aslan C118 polymeric films, great for a large variety of applications, including vehicle graphics, and the Ritrama L100 monomeric films, ideal for most general signage. Both of these are 70 microns and come in a great selection of colours, including metallic silver and gold.

Some really stunning designs can be created with standard coloured vinyl, particularly when used in conjunction with Doro’s fantastic specialist films, such as the Gemstone range, mirror, metallised and holographic effect films, and the beautiful colour-changing Aurora and Andromeda among others. Also popular is the Carbon fibre effect vinyl, which, being from the Durable range, has a five year exterior life, and is resistant to staining, cracking and delaminating.

Work from printers, applicators and end-users form all over Europe was submitted into four different categories:
Vehicle Graphics, Interior Signs, Exterior Signs and Technical Achievements. A special Advertising Prize was also awarded to the entry considered most relevant and groundbreaking from an advertiser's point of view. The top prize for Exterior Signs was won by a UK company, Jupiter Display.

All films in the S-FX Durable, and S-FX Plus ranges can be printed using digital (solvent ink), thermal heat transfer, and screen printing techniques, giving further scope for some really special visual displays and graphics.

Doro Tape has recently added the brand new Shine series; stunning range of glossy coloured metallic films in cherry, azure, magenta, violet and emerald. The films are made up of a metallised polyester, with a coloured soft PVC laminate on top, giving a high quality film with a two-year exterior life.

Also new to Doro this year is a brand new line in glass etch effect vinyl for window graphics, called the EL300 Dry Apply by Aslan. Perfect for graphics on glass, this silver etch film has a special patterned adhesive surface that allows air to escape easily during application. No need for wet application (in fact not recommended), it gives a perfect bubble-free finish. With an outdoor life of up to seven years, this easy to apply vinyl is a great addition to the wide variety of etch effect films available at Doro.

With lots more ranges and a separate website full of digitally printable media, Doro Tape believes it really can offer a vinyl to suit every job.
