I was impressed by the vinyl coating, but this hydrographics is unreal. I have not had it done or know anyone who has.

Thats an incredible looking process which would get amazing results over whole panels and components!

I wonder how easily it comes off though??

Spot on! Amazing!  I'm going to have to research this.  Many of the items imply a need for real durability and that would be key for me.

Q : Is Water Transfer Printing durable?
A : The Hydro Graphics ink is very durable itself.
However, a protective clearcoat needs to be applied to protect decorated items to last for years.

Yeah the several references to clear coating are what jumped out at me too but I figured it better to post the entire FAQ for all to read
