Vinyl Lettering Pet Grooming

What is Vehicle Lettering?

Vehicle lettering or car/truck lettering includes the lettering, numbering, or graphics individually cut out from a sheet of solid colored, 2-mil vinyl. Each shape is pre-spaced and placed onto masking transfer tape that allows for easy installation on your car, truck, or van in one piece, creating a clean and professional look.

Vehicle lettering works great on cars, trucks, vans, jeeps, buses, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, dirt bikes, ATVs, UTVs, race cars, off-road vehicles, RVs, tractors, and even lawn mowers. It also works on windows and painted surfaces.

How to Install Vinyl Car and Truck Lettering

All our vehicle lettering comes pre-spaced and pre-masked with transfer tape that makes installation a simple, all-at-once process. Follow the step-by-step instructions below for a fast application:

Thoroughly clean and dry the surface of your car or truck where the decal will be installed.

Apply a horizontal strip of masking tape to the top of the graphic with the top half of the tape on the intended surface, creating a hinge.

Note: Designs with three or more colors will require you to place individually colored layers on your vehicle. Two vinyl dots (one in the upper left corner and one in the bottom right corner of each layer) will be used to help align individual layers.

Hold the bottom edge of the hinged graphic away from the intended surface and remove the back liner, revealing the sticky backing of your lettering. Be careful not to allow the exposed adhesive to touch the surface.

Using a squeegee*, press down on the premask, placing the lettering or graphic onto the intended surface. If creases develop, carefully lift the graphic and place it again. Work from top to bottom and left to right.

*Available for purchase with vehicle lettering.

Remove any air by dragging the squeegee from the center of your graphic outward.

Gently remove the premask, starting at a top corner. If any vinyl begins to come off the surface, use your squeegee to firmly adhere it back to the surface and continue peeling away the premask. This should remove the masking tape hinge as well.

Laying the liner over the graphic with the shiny side facing you, apply hard pressure with the squeegee, removing any remaining air bubbles.

As noted above, for vinyl lettering with three or more colors your order will have one layer per color. Repeat steps 2-7 and use the registration marks in the in the upper left and bottom right corners to ensure proper alignment and installation. The video below shows the installation process for 1 and 2 color vinyl lettering.

Download or Print Vehicle Lettering Installation Instructions

Use water and a non-abrasive cloth to clean your vinyl car and truck lettering. This lettering is not ideal for pressurized car washes, as it may result in peeling corners. Do not use strong cleaners or power washers on or around the lettering. This could damage or remove the lettering from your vehicle.

What is your vinyl car and truck lettering made of?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Our vehicle lettering is made from durable 2 mil (50 micron) vinyl that is designed to last up to 8–10 years (depending on use and climate conditions). The vinyl is self-adhesive and comes in over 35 different colors.

How thick is the vinyl vehicle lettering?
Asked a year ago by Signs

The thickness of the vinyl material used is .002" (2-mil or 50 microns; about the thickness of half of a sheet of copy paper). This allows the lettering to not protrude from the surface of the vehicle yet still maintain its quality and durability.

Is your car and truck lettering visible in the dark? Do you offer alternative types of vinyl lettering like premium, reflective, or marine vinyl?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Our vehicle lettering is not visible in the dark. As for premium vinyl, our standard vinyl has exceptional quality and has a durability and lifespan similar to what other providers offer with their "premium" vinyl material. Currently, we do not offer reflective or marine vinyl types. If you are interested in creating lettering out of one of these vinyl types, please contact us to see what options you may have.

How big should my lettering be?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Our car and truck lettering are available in a wide range of sizes to fit your needs. To determine what size your lettering should be, start measuring the size of the surface where you would like to apply the lettering. Most users apply lettering to the rear window, back, or sides of their vehicle. Our standard size of 36" x 18" fits most rear windows, but because rear windows are unique in size and shape, we highly recommend measuring for the exact size you need.

How is the height and width of my vinyl car and truck lettering measured?
Asked a year ago by Signs

The height is measured from the highest point of the tallest letter to the lowest point of the lowest-hanging letter. For example, if you were ordering vinyl lettering that said "Signs" the height of your lettering would be measured from the top of the capital letter "S" to the bottom of the "g". Likewise, the width of your lettering is measured from the beginning of the left-most letter to the end of the right-most letter. To determine the lettering’s total size, multiply the height by the width of the full design.

What are the maximum and minimum dimensions for my vehicle lettering?
Asked a year ago by Signs

The minimum size your lettering must be is 1" x 1". Due to our paneling technique, there is no definite maximum size for your vinyl lettering, allowing you to go as big as you like. This allows you to create some very large graphics for placement on large vehicles, such as buses or semi-trucks.

Note that if both width and height exceed 24", then you will need to have either your width or height comprised of multiple sheets or panels of vinyl, creating a small seam in the design. If you wish to have no seams in your lettering, then you must keep the dimensions below 24" (2’) in one direction (width or height) and 600" (50’) in the other direction.

When ordering large dimensions, we recommend hiring professionals to install the lettering or getting help from several people.

What is stroke width and why should I care?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Stroke width refers to the width of any portion of a letter or object. Letters or objects that have extremely narrow stroke widths may not be able to be used for vehicle lettering due to the difficulty in cutting, weeding, and installing them. If you are interested in using a font with narrow letters or a complex design, please contact us before ordering to see if we can produce it.

Do you offer vinyl car wraps?
Asked a year ago by Signs

We currently do not offer vinyl car wraps.

Do you offer car and truck stripes or striping?
Asked a year ago by Signs

We do not have an official truck stripes or striping product. However, our vinyl lettering can go up to 600" (50’) long, making striping using vinyl lettering a possibility. If you choose to do this and order striping that is over 3' long, we strongly recommend going for professional installation or seeking help from others when installing.

How many fonts do you have for use? What can I do if I want to use a font that you do not have?
Asked a year ago by Signs

We offer over 70 different fonts on our site, allowing you to create lettering that ranges from fun, professional, to creative. If you have a specific font in mind that you would like to use for your lettering but cannot find it on our site, you can upload a file of your desired font to our online design tool. The uploaded file must be in vector format and the file must be in AI, EPS, SVG, or PDF.

Feel free to contact our free design services if you need help uploading your desired font.
