Lettering on the Cheap

The answer is not as simple as yes and no. Some vinyl grades may be easier than others, but ultimately much of this will depend on your surface, how big your design is and how well you prepare. One of the biggest of these challenges will be the condition of your intended surface. For instance, if you have a smooth shiny surface your vinyl will be naturally attracted and stick very well. However, if you’re a novice this too may become challenging as the Vinyl will quickly adhere to your smooth surface. This can be fixed however using a generous amount of Application Fluid.
Alternatively, if you’re applying vinyl to a matte or uneven surface you should be careful of how much Application Fluid you apply. The vinyl will resist sticking to such a surface and Application Fluid may make it harder to apply your design.
There are instances you may find no clear solution for, such as glass surfaces. Glass is often very shiny and smooth which will attract your vinyl to adhere immediately. However, using too much application fluid will leave your design unable to properly apply for an extended period of time. If you have questions about your surface, we always have a knowledgeable staff that can answer any of your questions.

Your other concern should be the shape of the surface you intend to apply your vinyl too. If you choose to apply your vinyl to curved surface such as a door, or wavy surface, you should take extra care to ensure your vinyl is adhered at all points. Leaving room for air, dust or grime to enter the underside of your vinyl will cause a weakness over the entirety of your vinyl and over time can cause tearing or unfavorable outcomes.
