Vinyl Lettering is simple to apply and makes your project look professional. Lettering and Logos can be cut to any size. Don't worry about letter height; just measure the overall size of the area where you want to install vinyl lettering. Our simple layout tool allows you to stretch and squeeze the letters to fit the area. The lettering is computer cut from the vinyl material. We then weed out the unneeded portion and apply application tape over the prespaced letters. When the lettering arrives, peel off the wax paper backing and apply. Then peel off the application tape - the letters are stickier than the application tape so the letters will stay in place.
3 Year Vinyl Lettering – This is our least expensive vinyl letter material. It is used for most any project. Not recommended for long term use on vehicles or boats.
7 Year Vinyl Lettering – This vinyl lettering is slightly thinner but made of a higher quality vinyls which hold up to the sun and weather longer. This is the material you should use on your vehicle, boat or storefront for long lasting durability.
Removable Vinyl Lettering – The removable vinyl letters are made from the same material as our 3 year outdoor vinyl but the adhesive makes them removable without leaving any glue residue behind. Used indoors, these letters will last for many, many years. This is the material you see on used on TV home improvement shows to decorate walls with cute sayings. Removable vinyl lettering is also great for temporary signs outdoors.
Reflective Vinyl Lettering – Similar to street signs, reflective vinyl lettering has tiny reflective beads imbedded into the material so it seems to shine when light hits it. Great for uses where night visibility is important. Use reflective material on vehicle signs to set you apart from the competition.
Fluorescent Vinyl Lettering – When you want maximum effect, fluorescent vinyl letters are sure to get noticed. Because of the vibrant nature of fluorescent pigments, these colors will fade in about 6 - 24 months outdoors depending on material selected.

How to apply:
Step 1 - Clean the Surface
Using a strong cleaner which will not harm the sign surface, wipe the entire area and beyond. Wipe the area again with a very mild detergent or just plain water to remove any residue. Wipe the surface dry with a lint-free cloth.
Step 2 - Align the Vinyl Lettering
Place masking tape along the top edge of the sheet. With the backing paper and application tape still attached, position the vinyl lettering so that it is properly aligned and level.
Step 3 - Tape the Graphics in Place
Using the squeegee, stick the masking tape to the sign surface to hold it in place. Use care to make sure the sheet with letters is not wrinkled.
Step 4 - Cut Long Sheets to Size (optional)
Lettering which is too long to handle easily can be cut vertically with scissors between letters or words. Cut through the Application Tape and Backing Paper, leaving each piece of the sheet attached to the surface with the masking tape.
Step 5 - Remove Backing Paper
Flip the sheet up using care not to peel the masking tape away. Remove the wax coated backing paper by slowly peeling it away. Be sure the the vinyl letters remain on the application tape.
Step 6 - Apply Vinyl Letters
Starting at the top edge, firmly slide the squeegee side to side to seal the letters to the surface. Slowly work your way to the bottom of the sign. Do not let the letters touch the sign surface until the squeegee passes over the area.
Step 7 - Remove Application Tape
Slowly peel away application tape, making sure that all letters are sticking properly. Use your squeegee if any areas of the letters are not sticking well. Air bubbles can be removed by cutting a small slice in the letter and working air out with the squeegee.
