Lettering on the Cheap

As with applying any decal it’s important to first determine the position you’d like to place your decal. Tile flooring can be easier for this reason as it acts like a pre-existing grid you can work from. However, keep in mind your tile itself may not be aligned perfectly with the shape of your room, or context in which you’re placing your decal. Moving to your decal and using a wax pencil, lets start by finding horizontal and parallel lines within the graphic we can use to find the center of your decal. As you measure, mark the center horizontal and parallel points of your decal. You will use these in conjunction with the marks on your surface to place your floor decal. Especially on larger decals, a useful tip for ensuring your decal is going exactly where you intend, is to trace the edges of your decal directly onto the floor. You may be required to use a blade to cut away at masking tape or Vinyl backing. You should be careful not to damage your vinyl and you certainly don’t have to cut the entire decal out this way. Simple small indicator marks will be enough to place your decal down properly.
