Four Easy Steps
to apply your new signwriting
|Format:||5-7 year Outdoor Grade: Vinyl lettering DIY Ready to apply. Suitable for boats, vehicles, sign boards and General Signage.|
|1||1. CLEAN AND DE-GREASE your signage surface and wipe of any dust. Adhesive can not stick to dust.|
|The lettering supplied will match the proof supplied to you perfectly. Each line of lettering will have a pencil mark showing you the centre point, left or right point for your reference. This will make it easy to align multi lines of lettering / text / logo etc.|
|2||MEASURE the position of the line from either
the top or the bottom of the sign, the section on the vehicle,
|3||TURN THE LETTERING OVER, showing the back
side of the silicone paper, this will make removing the line
easier for you. Put the lettering onto your line by peeling back
the silicone backing. This will leave the lettering upside down.|
Using a Household squirt bottle or spray bottle, apply a light mist over the lettering. For larger letters, you may also soften the water and reduce the instant adhesive power on the rear side of the self adhesive vinyl by adding ONE DROP of normal dishwashing liquid. Avoid using Soap, it may take longer to dry or leave a residue if you are working on glass windows. Dishwashing Liquid is better.
The lettering is adhesive based. Applying a light mist over the adhesive will allow you to re-position any necessary movement. If you need to, you may / can actually flood the entire sign panel with water. The Adhesive Vinyl we use is suitable for boat signs, trucks etc and is water proof. If you use a lot of water, this is ok, but it may take longer to dry before you can remove the Application Tape (Paper tape that lifts off) Hold the line at each end, turn over and place onto your pencil marked line.
TIP: Wet the Sign Panel for heavy water use on very
large letters. Lightly mist the Lettering for small letters.
|4||RUB THE LETTERING ONTO THE SIGN. Once you
have pressured the lettering onto the sign, AND THE PAPER OR
PANEL IS AGAIN DRY, remove the top
covering tape from left to right at a slight angle, LEAVING THE
LETTERING BEHIND IN PERFECT POSITION.|
OOPS, A FEW BUBBLES,
Bubbles will disappear over time and may take a few days or week
to dissolve. If needed, you can prick the bubble with a pin.
Even we get tiny bubbles.
