There is a difference between flex film and flock film
There is a difference between flock film and flex film in terms of thickness and smoothness. Both are attached to an adhesive carrier. Those are hard adhesive plastic layers. It is possible to cut flex folm as well as flock film using a cutter. Hand-cutting is also an option. Using pointed scissors, you cut them out without removing the carrier after drawing it on the back. The flex film, however, is more suited to smaller designs than flock film.
