What Is Vinyl Lettering?

Vinyl lettering is a clever and cost effective way of applying custom wording quickly and easily to almost any surface. Vinyl Lettering allows anyone to design and make their own durable and professional looking signs for vehicles, windows and notice boards. It will not fade and is completely waterproof and weather resistant. Vinyl lettering is hard wearing and will last up to seven years.

How is vinyl lettering done?

vinyl lettering done for wembley stadium by superchrome The required lettering or graphics are programmed by computer and cut by a plotter equipped with very sharp blades. Once the lettering has been cut, the unwanted vinyl is removed from the background silicon coated carrier sheet. The carrier sheet with the lettering is then covered with low-tack application tape. Applying vinyl lettering involves "picking up" the lettering by the application tape which is then peeled off the carrier sheet. The lettering can now be placed in position on any smooth non-porous surface and pressed down. Once the vinyl lettering is securely stuck to the surface, the application tape is peeled off.

Suitable surfaces

Vinyl lettering will stick to any non porous surface and is commonly applied to metal, glass, gloss painted wood, plastic and PVC banner material.
