Chris, It is not a manufacturing issue but rather a PW issue. They take
material and cut it. I believe you will find out that their material comes
to them in one size and they are the ones recutting it. I'd ask them about
labeling which side to use. I only need worry that it is spooled correctly
as I have only used it on rolls.

I may be mistaken but that is what they do with film, so...
