How to apply vinyl lettering and decals

For the do-it-yourselfer, installing vinyl lettering and decals, is easy!

Applying vinyl lettering and graphics is a relatively easy process for the do-it-yourself enthusiasts. However, some vinyl applications are much easier than others. Simple vinyl lettering like DOT Numbers, Boat Names, Phone Numbers, etc. is easily installed by one person. Whereas large vinyl decals (graphics) or blocks of vinyl lettering may require a partner for assistance. Other factors that dictate how hard, or easy it will be do install vinyl decals or lettering, include what type of surface the vinyl is being applied too; how large the lettering or graphics are; where the vinyl will be installed (up high or in awkward spots that are hard to get too); or if the decals or lettering will need, or can be, applied in sections? These questions and others can help determine the ease of applying vinyl lettering and graphics.

Ultimately, no matter the vinyl installation situation, most everybody has success installing their own vinyl decals or vinyl lettering. We are here to help you successfully install your vinyl by offering phone assistance (during operating hours) and online information (after hours). Different companies have different ways of installing vinyl. We have found the dry application method for vinyl application and installation works best for our installers and the general public as well.
