Click Here For How-To Videos

Our vinyl products can easily be applied by anyone, without any special skills or tools. Simply follow the directions below very closely, and you’ll be enjoying your vinyl project very soon!

Vinyl Preparation:

Using a ruler or credit card, you are going to "burnish" your lettering. To do this, place your lettering face down on a flat surface; apply pressure evenly with you ruler or credit card by running it back and forth along the length of your lettering.

Wall Preparation:

If your walls have been painted recently, please make sure to wait 30 days before applying your vinyl to allow the paint plenty of time to cure. Otherwise please make sure your wall is dust free by cleaning it with a warm, wet cloth. Let dry completely.

Step 1:

While taking your time, use a laser level and measuring tape to determine exactly where you would like your vinyl lettering to be. Tape along the top with painters tape (masking tape) to hold it on the wall. Double check to make sure that it is level.

If your lettering is more than 4 feet long, we recommend that you cut it into more manageable pieces at this point. Using a pair of scissors cut between words as needed; DO NOT remove the tape from the wall while doing this.

Starting in a top corner, peel away the sticky paper by pulling down and to the side. Pull it as close to the wall as possible. If the lettering should stick to the paper instead of the wall, simply rub it some more, or help it to stay with a nudge from your fingernail.
