Vinyl lettering includes lettering, numbering, or 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.
Some surfaces vinyl lettering will work on include glass, windows, walls, storefronts, cars/trucks, and boats.

Installation & Care
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.
- Thoroughly clean and dry the surface where the lettering will be installed.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Laying the liner over the graphic with the shiny side facing you, apply hard pressure with the squeegee, removing any stubborn air bubbles.
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.
