Custom text decal Vinyl lettering decals are a great way to add your business name, phone number, address and website URL on a vehicle. They can also be used on storefronts, sign blanks, glass windows and interior walls.
How Do You Cut Your Vinyl Lettering?
A vinyl cutter is a computer-controlled machine that cuts out designs from a roll of vinyl. It can be set up to cut out a single color, or it can be set up to print graphics from a design file.
Typically the vinyl is cut into individual letters and numbers on a roll of colored vinyl. These characters are then pre-spaced and placed onto a transfer tape layer. The tape layer holds the letters and characters in place on the non-adhesive side of the vinyl.
How to Choose the Right Material for Your Custom Text Decals
Decals are single pieces of vinyl containing printed graphics. They can have more color choices and are usually less complex than lettering.
They can be cut into larger formats than vinyl lettering and can be stuck to walls, floors and glass. They do not come with the same level of durability as lettering and can stretch or break apart during removal.
Vinyl lettering is cut out of a vinyl base that has a good quality adhesive on one side. It can be applied on a wide variety of surfaces including walls, glass, metal and concrete. It is easy to remove from most solid surfaces, although it can be scraped off with a flat razor blade if needed. For more sensitive or porous surfaces a window cleaner or diluted rubbing alcohol should be sufficient for the job.
