Custom Vinyl Lettering Options:

Vinyl Letter Sizes

We can create your custom text letter stickers to any size.  The largest vinyl letters we’ve ever made were on 8×4 foot vinyl letters!  There are some size limitations when we are producing small vinyl letters, we recommend keeping the thickness of the cut vinyl at least .25″.  Our

Vinyl Letter Colors

There are 2 ways to produce your vinyl letters.  We can use pre-colored vinyl lettering like white vinyl letters, red vinyl letters or black vinyl letters.  We have over 500 pre-colored custom vinyl lettering colors to chose from.  The other option is to custom print and cut vinyl lettering to any custom color.

Vinyl Letter Installation:

Installing vinyl letters can be tricky.  These are self-adhesive letters that are made to be extremely durable so you have 1 chance to install the lettering properly.  When installing your custom vinyl lettering, we recommend having a squeeze, a strip of masking tape and a tape measure.  Tape the top of the self-adhesive vinyl letters then slowly peel back the vinyl transfer paper.  Starting from the middle out and top-down, slowly lay down the vinyl lettering with the squeegee.  Once the custom lettering is installed, remove the vinyl transfer paper and you are done!

Wall Letters

Wall letters can be tricky to install because you can easily peel off the paint.  We recommend measuring very carefully to make sure you get your vinyl wall letters in the right place the first time.  If you are producing large letters for your wall, we recommend taping up all of the vinyl letters then installing them in sections from left to right.  We recommend leaving your vinyl lettering for walls up for years as they are not reusable.

Common Vinyl Letter Questions:

Can you use vinyl lettering as letter stencils?

Yes, If you are looking for letter stencils, letter decals can be a great option.  Keep in mind our letter decals are not repositionable so if you are creating multiple letter stencils then you will want to order several sets of letter stickers.  Our company is great for producing custom letter stencils but if you are just looking for a generic letter stencil, I would recommend going to your local Wal Mart.

When ordering a vinyl sign for my office, does vinyl window lettering go on the inside or the outside?

90% of the time, we highly recommend putting your vinyl window lettering on the outside of your office window.  Most commercial glass has a window tint so it will be really hard to see your custom vinyl window lettering through this tint.  Our vinyl window letters also have a glossy finish so they will really stand out and attract the eye of potential customers who are driving by.  If your office is in a high foot traffic location, you may be worried about your vinyl window lettering getting vandalized.  In this case, it may make more sense to install your custom window letters on the interior.  You need to way out the cost to cut window lettering vs the cost of missing potential customers from your window decals being on the inside.

Can you make custom vinyl numbers for my truck?

Custom vinyl numbers are needed for many commercial trucks.  While you can always buy premade vinyl letters, custom vinyl truck lettering looks much nicer and will improve the look of your brand.  We can create your vinyl numbers to match the color of your logo and the rest of your truck lettering.  Make sure you check the local, state and federal laws to make sure your vinyl numbers are the correct height.  If you have any further questions on truck lettering, just give us a shout!

Can you create vinyl calligraphy numbers?

Calligraphy vinyl numbers can be pretty hard to create due to the thin cuts but it is possible.  If you want to produce calligraphy numbers on vinyl, I would recommend creating your file then sending it to use so we can double check to make sure the vinyl letters can be cut properly.

What font can I use on my custom text?

We can create your vinyl lettering using any custom text or font.  We have over 1000 fonts at our office and we can use any custom text, custom letter, custom symbol, or a custom number to create your vinyl decals.  If you submit your own artwork, please outline the fonts on your custom text so your adhesive lettering turns out properly.

Can I produce decorative letters for my house?

We produce a lot of decorative letters for house and business environments.  If you want your core values in vinyl or any other decorative letters in vinyl that is not a problem at all.  You may want a custom quote for your decorative letters, just send over the custom text and we can create the artwork for you.

Can you make number stickers?

We can make custom number stickers and custom vinyl numbers any shape and size.  We do not recommend using our number stickers for sports jerseys or any other long-term application on cloth.  Our number stickers are much better to be used as vinyl signs for offices or vinyl signs for cars.  If you need vinyl numbers for a phone number for your office, that would be a much better use.

How does the vinyl transfer tape work?

Vinyl transfer tape is a thin, low adhesive vinyl mask label that goes on top of your custom vinyl letters.   The vinyl transfer tape allows you to keep the vinyl lettering straight while installing.  Once you have installed your vinyl lettering on your windows, simply peel back the vinyl transfer tape and throw it in the trash.  We do sell rolls of vinyl transfer tape if you need some for a custom vinyl lettering project.

Do you make do it yourself lettering?

While we do have professional installers who can come out to install your vinyl lettering, most of what we sell is do it yourself lettering.  DIY lettering can be intimidating to install but once you’ve done it a few times it gets much easier.  You can buy a vinyl lettering machine for doing it yourself lettering but unless you are producing 100s of vinyl decals, we would recommend leaving it to the pros.  If you need tips on installing your DIY lettering, feel free to give our vinyl letter installers a call at any time.

How do I remove my stick on letters?

Stick on letters can only be used 1 time so you should be aware of them before you remove the custom vinyl lettering.  To remove the stick on letters, just peel off a corner of the vinyl sticker then pull.  If you are removing vinyl lettering decals for walls, be careful not to peel the paint off.  If you are removing vinyl window lettering, it is generally safe to use a plastic utility knife but make sure you do not damage the tint.

How do I setup the artwork for my custom lettering?

Custom lettering is pretty easy to set up.  We recommend using Adobe Illustrator to prepare your custom letters.  Choose your size, font, and color and save your custom lettering as a .ai file.  If you are using pre-colored vinyl lettering, then please just submit an outline of your fonts.  When producing custom printed vinyl lettering, save the file with all colors intact and place the cut line on a separate layer.

What if I just need to change 1 vinyl number on my window lettering?

Unless you ordered your vinyl from us, it is very hard to match the size and color of just 1 vinyl number for your window lettering.  A lot of people change their store hours and need new business hour vinyl.  If you need to switch out 1 or 2 vinyl numbers on your window lettering, sadly we recommend peeling everything off and starting over.  Most vinyl letters can fade and shrink over time and it is almost impossible to match the old window lettering with a new custom letter.

What is the proper spelling of custom vinyl letters?

The correct spelling is “Vinyl Letters”, however, some people spell it as “vynal letters” or “vynel letters”

How long will vinyl lettering for windows last?

Vinyl lettering for windows should last at least 3 years.  We’ve seen some vinyl lettering for windows last up to 10 years.  The life of your custom vinyl letters really depends on the climate you live in.  Some people who order custom vinyl lettering in Los Angeles have reported that their vinyl signs last up to 10 years due to the mild weather.  Clients who order custom vinyl lettering in NYC tell is the vinyl sign only lasts about 3 years.  One suggestion to improve the durability of vinyl lettering for windows is to make sure the window cleaner is careful when cleaning your windows.  If you are using these as car decals, car stickers or bumper stickers, you will probably see a 2 yr durability.

How do you make vinyl letter decals?

We make our vinyl letter decals buy purchasing large rolls of vinyl.  Then we take that vinyl and put it through our vinyl cutter which drags a knife to create vinyl letter decals.  We then remove the excess vinyl with is a process called “weeding”.  Once we are done weeding vinyl, we place vinyl transfer paper on top of the stickers and boom, your custom vinyl letter decals are done!
