Vinyl Lettering

Vinyl lettering is a type of sign or decal that can be placed on a wall, window or any other flat surface. The letters are cut out of a sheet of vinyl, and arrive with an application tape backing to hold the vinyl in place during installation. The vinyl is indoor rated and will last about 8-10 years with proper care and placement.

How to Install Your Custom Vinyl Lettering

Before you start installing your vinyl, make sure to clean your surface and apply a protective coating. This will help prevent the transfer of any dirt or debris into your lettering, and ensure a smooth and professional look when it comes time to remove it.

Measure the surface you’re going to place your lettering on and mark with a water-soluble pencil (available at our vinyl application accessory page) where you would like the graphic to be applied. Once you’ve made your measurements, carefully flip the graphic over so that the adhesive side is facing up.

Peel away the pre-mask transfer tape from the back of your vinyl graphics, starting at a top corner. If any of your letters begin to come off the wall, use a credit card or squeegee to firmly stick them back in place.

Lower the masking layer and begin squeegeeing the transfer tape onto the surface, working from left to right. If you notice any air bubbles, go slow and try again.

A caster sale  is a great time to stock up on casters for your furniture, appliances, equipment, and more. Casters come in different materials, wheel diameters and tread widths, as well as load ratings and overall heights, so you can choose the ones that will best match your specific needs.

Casters are used to support and maneuver a variety of pieces of equipment, including carts, racks and dollies. They are available in a wide range of materials, with many different wheel diameters and tread widths to fit various floor types.

They are also sold based on their maximum rated weight capacity, which will determine where they will be most useful. Lighter casters are ideal for rolling furniture and less demanding applications, while heavier casters can be used for industrial equipment or uses that require more support.

You can add features to swivel casters, such as swivel locks, swivel restrictors, sealed swivel sections and brakes. These options can increase the price of a swivel caster, but they provide additional functionality.

Stem casters are popular for lighter-duty equipment, such as office chair caster wheels, wire shelves and shopping carts. They use a stem, a small metal rod that attaches to the bottom of the piece of equipment.

Plate casters are another type of caster that uses a flat plate with holes to attach the caster to equipment. These are commonly found on medical carts and other apparatus.

Kingpin casters are also an option for customers who want to reduce their swivel ability in high-torque applications. These casters include a staked or threaded element that keeps the swivel assembly together, making it more likely to last in these uses.
