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.
