Vinyl graphics and letters consist of three parts: top layer – application tape, which holds the letters in their pre-spaced places, bottom layer – paper release liner, which is a waxy paper and is the ‘’carrier’’ of the vinyl, and the actual Vinyl Letters or numbers are between these two.
Tools to help your custom Vinyl letters and numbers installation – a squeegee or a credit card.
Installation of Vinyl Lettering
Step 1: Clean the target area with a soapy water and let it completely dry (for glossy surfaces). Wipe the dust off the rigid surfaces like walls, wood,etc.
Step 2: If the graphics are of a bigger size, use a masking tape to hold the Vinyl Letterings in place, attach it to hold the corners and in the middle to create a hinge
Step 3: Make sure the application area is level and even to ensure the image is straight before the final application.
Step 4: Create a hinge in the middle of the graphics or apply a tape at the top line of the vinyl and one atop the tape.
Step 5: Now, peel off the first half of the graphics and smoothen it with a squeegee. If you are using a top hinge, you might also want to cut the graphics, for easier application
Step 6: Remove the hinge, take out the backing tape and evenly press the vinyl to the surface.
Step 7: Once again, squeegee the entire graphics and remove the application tape at a sharp angle.
