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 8×4 feet! There are some size limitations when we are producing small vinyl letters; we recommend keeping the thickness of the cut vinyl at least .25″.
Vinyl Letter Colors
There are two ways to create your stickers. We can use pre-colored vinyl lettering such as white, red, or black. We have over 500 pre-colored vinyl colors to chose. 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 one chance to fit the lettering properly. When installing, 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 decal with the squeegee. Once the custom lettering installs, remove the vinyl transfer paper, and you have your new signs!
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 letters then installing them in sections from left to right.
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 excellent for producing custom letter stencils, but if you are 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 on the outside of your office window. Most commercial glass has a window tint so it will be tough to see your logo through this tint. Our vinyl window letters also have a glossy finish so they will stand out and attract the eye of potential customers who are driving around your office. 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.
Can you make custom vinyl numbers for my truck?
Custom vinyl numbers are a must for many commercial trucks. While you can always buy premade vinyl letters, custom vinyl truck lettering looks much more beautiful 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. 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, 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 building your file then sending it to use so we can double check to make sure the vinyl letters can cut.
What font can I use in 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 artwork, please outline the fonts on your custom text, so your adhesive lettering turns out correctly.
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, send over the custom text, and we can create the artwork for you.
Can you make the 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 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 application straight while installing. Once you have established the sticker on your windows, 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.
How do I remove my stick on letters?
Stick on letters can only be used one time so you should be aware of them before you remove the custom vinyl lettering. To remove the stick on letters, peel off a corner of the vinyl sticker then pull. If you are eliminating 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 set up 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, then please submit an outline of your fonts. When producing custom prints, save the file with all colors intact and place the cut line on a separate layer.
What if I need to change one vinyl number on my window lettering?
Unless you ordered your vinyl from us, it is tough to match the size and color of just one 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 can fade and shrink over time, and it is almost impossible to match the old window logos with a new vinyl.
What is the proper spelling of custom vinyl letters?
There are common misspellings such as “vynal letters” or “vynel letters.”
