Applying your custom vinyl lettering
Use these steps to apply your custom vinyl lettering:
1. Position Your Lettering: Mark out some guidelines on the surface you’re applying the vinyl to, to ensure your lettering will go on straight. Align your vinyl lettering to the surface, using the guidelines that you marked. Tape or tack the vinyl lettering to the upper edge of the guidelines to keep it in position.
2. Remove the Backing Paper: The quotes have a transfer tape (looks and feels like white masking tape) on one side and backing paper (white and shiny) on the other. Before peeling the back paper off, rub the surface of transfer tape to insure the quote is adhered solidly to the transfer tape. (Letters may pull away from transfer tape during shipping). Flip-up the vinyl lettering and peel off the backing.
3. Rub the Vinyl Letters/Graphics: Rub over the vinyl lettering or graphics (a credit card or popsicle stick work great) to securely adhere them to your surface. Work from the center to the outside edge on both sides.
4. Remove the Transfer Paper: Carefully peel off the transfer sticking paper to reveal your vinyl lettering or graphics.
Q & A
Q: What is decorative wall lettering?
A: Decorative wall lettering is lettering you can apply to walls, glass, smooth stone, metal, wood, plastic, etc. Lettering is self-adhesive and will stick for years to most any smooth or semi-smooth surface. Our lettering does not stick well to porous or semi-porous materials such as brick, cinderblock, paper, and untreated wood. *Lightly textured walls work fine with vinyl lettering, however moderate to heavily textured walls do not.
Q: Do I have to put each letter on individually?
A: The vinyl letters come pre-spaced and ready to apply to your selected surface.
Q: Can I remove the lettering?
A: Vinyl lettering is removable. Simply work a corner of a letter loose with fingernails or tweezers and slowly peel the letter off the wall. Repeat with each letter. If you can grip it but the lettering is not removing easily, use a blow dryer and apply hot air to the lettering for a few moments. After removal, if there is any adhesive stuck to the wall, rubbing alcohol will remove it.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: If you’re removing letters from a darker shaded wall and the letters have been up for 6 months or longer, you may notice a “shadow” of the letters on the wall. While the rest of the wall has lightened over time, the paint behind the letters has stayed the original darker shade. In such cases repainting could be necessary.
Q: Why choose vinyl film lettering over stencils?
A: While having the benefit of appearing “painted on” our lettering have none of the disadvantages of painted letters. With vinyl lettering there is no smudging; letter borders are crisp and clean. Your chosen phrase arrives ready-to-apply in a single horizontal or vertical strip with each letter perfectly formed and pre-spaced, all in your preferred font and color. Most expressions can also be installed in under 30 minutes. While our letters will stay in place for many years once installed, they are easily removable if the need arises.
Q: How do I determine the height of the vinyl lettering?
A: The height is determined by measuring the tallest point and the lowest point of the phrase. For example: a phrase that says, “Stand for Something”, would be measured from the top of the capital ‘S’ in ‘Stand’ to the bottom of the ‘g’ in ‘Something’.
