What is Vinyl Lettering?
Vinyl lettering is a product produced by computer technology today that is used to cut lettering, logos or simple line artwork from a computer file into a thin, factory-coloured vinyl carrier sheet with a pressure-sensitive adhesive on the back. Once the vinyl stock is cut, the background or waste vinyl is removed, leaving the lettering on the carrier sheet in the form it was cut. A transfer sheet is then applied to the cut area, making the letter a three-part system: carrier sheet, adhesive vinyl and transfer sheet.
The transfer sheet allows you to lift the lettering off the carrier and move it all at one time, while maintaining letter spacing and position. Once you have burnished down the letters, the transfer sheet is peeled off. Because the lettering is applied to the surface as one piece, it looks like it was painted directly onto the surface with each letter perfectly shaped with the same sizes, thicknesses and styles and the backgrounds around each letter clearly visible. Vinyl lettering is used everywhere, from signs to vehicles, windows, doors, walls and even equipment and appliances. It can be applied to glass, finished wood, metal, paper products, plastics and most painted surfaces.
Benefits of Cut Vinyl Lettering
Cut vinyl lettering is the most professional-looking media used for window lettering. One of the main benefits of cut vinyl is the colour. It is not printed on the vinyl surface. The vinyl is pigmented during the manufacturing process, meaning the colour is more light-resistant then a printed image and will show colour on both sides of the glass, inside and out. There are many colours available, including some speciality colours like frosting, brushed aluminum and even metallic gold and silver. Oh, yes, it can be cleaned and even though it is considered a permanent graphic, it can also be removed. There are also many different grades of vinyl available with some having a longer life expectancy than others.
