I’ve tried both laminated and non laminated. I think they would both work okay. Non laminated absolutely no spinners. The thinner laminate, you can kinda feel it rubbing, but I think it’s still okay. I don’t think the thicker textured laminate, or that double thick glossy would work though, maybe those are a bit too thick.OK, so just went back and compared the HSI $1 to a normal RHC chip:
So, I am not convinced that an un-laminated label would not cause spinners. I think the only way to find out is to try one (I only have laminated labels from Gear). But if the depth of this recess is the same as a normal RHC, I do not believe that the smaller inlay's edges would be able to be felt through.
- The inlay of the HSI is smaller; there's no doubt about that. The extra white around the smaller label is chip. It's not laminated.
- I ran my thumb over the area where the smaller inlay meets the chip material, and although I can tell there's a change of materials there, I now believe that you would most likely NOT feel this under an over-label.
- However, upon inspecting the entire area of the inlay+chip material, I still believe that this might be a hair less deep than a normal RHC.
I can take some pictures of gear sample labels on the sec 1as. I’ll see if I can find the sample stickers.
