What is Vinyl Lettering?

Vinyl Lettering

Vinyl lettering includes lettering, numbering, and shapes that are individually cut out from a sheet of solid colored, 2-mil vinyl and then pre-spaced and placed onto pre-masked transfer tape (the number of transfer tape sheets used will depend on the size of your vinyl lettering and amount of colors used). This allows the lettering to be easily installed as one piece, creating a clean and professional look. You have the option to choose the standard print surface or have it made to be displayed inside glass.

Our vinyl lettering will stick on almost any flat, nonporous surface. Some surfaces vinyl lettering will work on include glass, windows, walls, storefronts, cars/trucks, and boats. Scale is no problem! We can provide the perfect fit for every display surface, big or small. We can print vinyl lettering as large as 24” x 60” in size.

Vinyl Lettering

Our vinyl lettering has over 30 different colors to choose from, including specialty colors such as frosted, fluorescent, gold, and silver. You are also able to incorporate multiple colors into your lettering design.



Common Uses For Vinyl Lettering

Vinyl lettering is one of the most versatile tools for marketing. Since it’s made of durable, high-quality vinyl, it can be used both indoors and outdoors. It sticks to most surfaces and is weather-resistant. Below are some of the most popular uses for vinyl lettering:

Have Your Design Standard or Reverse Cut

You can choose either Standard or Reverse Cut for your vinyl lettering. Standard Cut makes it so each letter and object in your design will be cut directly out of the vinyl material, leaving no background. With Reverse Cut, each element in your design will be cut away from the background of the vinyl material. With Standard Cut the price of your vinyl lettering is based off of the size of your actual design, whereas with Reverse Cut the price will be based off of the size of the square/rectangle you are having your design cut out of.

How to Install Vinyl Lettering

All of our vinyl lettering comes pre-spaced and pre-masked with transfer tape, making installation a simple, all-at-once process. Follow the step by step instructions below to help you get it installed exactly as you want it. The instructions below are for one-color and simple two-color letters and graphics. For orders with complex two-color designs or three or more colors, due to both production and installation quality purposes, you will install your vinyl lettering layer by layer for the same seamless and professional look.

VinylLetteringStep1

Thoroughly clean and dry the surface where the lettering will be installed.

product-image

After measuring and marking your intended installation location if necessary, apply a horizontal strip of masking or painters 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 wall. 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.
VinylLetteringStep3

Hold the bottom edge of the hinged graphic away from the intended surface and remove the back liner (which is different from the transfer tape), revealing the sticky backing of your lettering or graphic. Be careful not to allow the exposed adhesive to touch the surface.

VinylLetteringStep4

Using a squeegee*, apply pressure to the front or pre masked side of your lettering, placing the graphic onto the intended surface. Squeegee from left to right from the top down. If creases or bubbles develop, carefully lift the graphic and re-squeegee it.

*Available for purchase with vinyl lettering.

VinylLetteringStep5

Once in place without creases or bubbles, squeegee the entire lettering or graphic to ensure the adhesive is firmly attached to the surface.

Gently remove the pre-mask transfer tape, starting at a top corner. If any vinyl begins to come off the wall, use your squeegee to firmly adhere it back to the wall and continue peeling away the premask.

product-image

Laying the liner over the graphic with the shiny side facing you, apply hard pressure with the squeegee, removing any stubborn 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 upper left and bottom right corners to ensure proper alignment and installation.

Care

Your vinyl lettering can be washed on a regular basis with a damp non-abrasive rag. This will clear it of dust or grime without damaging the lettering. Do not use strong cleaners or scrub vigorously as both of these actions may damage and/or peel away the lettering from the surface where applied.

Q:
Will all of my individual letters/design elements be placed on the same sheet of transfer tape?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
A:
In most cases, the individual letters contained within your vinyl lettering will be appropriately spaced and placed on a single sheet of transfer tape, making installation quick and simple. However, if your vinyl lettering exceeds 48" (for colors black and white) or 24" (for all other colors) in both width and height, your lettering will be split and placed onto two sheets of transfer tape. You will also receive your vinyl lettering in multiple sheets if you are using three or more different colors. In this case, each separate color will be grouped together on its own sheet.
Q:
How will incorporating multiple colors affect my vinyl lettering?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
A:
Including multiple colors in your vinyl lettering design will affect how it is printed, shipped, and installed on your wall. Most designs that include only two colors will be produced just as designs with one color - all on one sheet of pre-masked transfer tape. Installation of one or simple two-color products can be applied all at once as per the installation instructions and downloadable PDF further up on this page. Large or complex designs that include two or more colors will be printed in layers according to color. This means you will receive multiple sheets of vinyl lettering (each with pre-masked transfer tape over the top of your lettering or design). Each layer will have a vinyl lettering dot in the upper left and bottom right corners of the pre-mask film to help with alignment during installation. To install the lettering on your wall, simply align each sheet using the dots on the upper left and bottom right corners of each layer. Begin with the first layer, attach it to the wall then peel away the pre-mask film. Align the second layer in the desired position by lining up its registration dots to the ones from the previous layer that are now on the wall, then adhere the vinyl lettering to the wall. Repeat this step until all layers have been positioned on your wall. So long as the marks on each sheet are lined up correctly as you install the individual layers, your vinyl lettering will appear as if all the color layers came from a single sheet of pre-mask. This method of installing vinyl lettering is done for higher quality production purposes and is the preferred method of professional installation teams due to the more seamless end result. Remove the small dots, if any remain, that were applied during installation.
Q:
Are the pre-masked transfer tape layers (for designs with multiple colors) numbered?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
A:
The individual layers are not numbered. Please be sure to place the layers in the correct order based on your design parameters.
Q:
Why does vinyl lettering come in separate layers for designs with three or more colors?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
A:
Multiple layers are implemented in order to preserve the quality of your vinyl lettering. Because vinyl lettering is cut from material and not printed, placing more than three colors on a single pre-mask sheet could cause unwanted overlap and bubbling of the vinyl during the production process. The complexity of manufacturing designs with three or more colors requires separate layers to ensure that the material is smooth and free of bubbles prior to installation. Further, for both small and large graphics, it is far easier to install vinyl lettering with lots of colors layer by layer to ensure no bubbling and a clean install than doing it all at once.
Q:
Does my design impact pricing for my lettering?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
A:
Yes. Both the size and the complexity of your font play a slight factor in the price of your sign. Very simple fonts require less cut time and weeding than more complex fonts. However, the difference in price due to design is extremely small.
Q:
Does my choice of colors impact cost?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
A:
No. The colors we provide online are all offered at the same cost. Although, having multiple colors together will increase your cost slightly.
Q:
How many sheets of vinyl lettering can I order?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
A:

You can order as many sheets as you require.

Q:
Will the colors on your website match exactly what I want?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
A:
When signage is printed, colors can vary from monitor to monitor. With normal signage we can offset this by doing custom color matching for a $50 charge. Because vinyl lettering is not printed but uses colored vinyl, we are unable to guarantee the colors will match a specific color you are looking for. The colors you see on screen (using standard settings) should be fairly close to the product you actually receive. However, we use a standard color set of vinyl and are happy to provide you the names of the colors we have in stock.
Q:
Can you do graphics or non-letter designs?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
A:
Aside from our small collection of clip art available online, we do not currently offer any additional graphics or non-letter designs. However, if you are looking for something custom that is not available online, we can absolutely help you. Please contact us for help getting what you’re looking for.
