Vinyl Lettering Projects

Vinyl lettering is a craft project that is easy to do, and easy to undo. To install vinyl lettering you create your design, remove the protective backing and then apply it to almost any surface. To remove a vinyl project, apply moderate heat with a hand-held hair dryer, and the vinyl should come right off. Vinyl does not create a mess on the adhered surface, and anyone in the family can get involved in vinyl lettering projects.

    On the Walls

  1. Vinyl lettering can help you to put signs and information on the walls of your home that make a unique presentation. In your child’s bedroom you can put their name on the wall in large letters, list their favorite cartoon characters or include the name of their favorite sports star. Instead of buying a plaque with a saying on it for the kitchen, you could create the saying in vinyl and install it directly on the wall. You can add names and captions to pictures mounted on the walls, directions to important rooms such as the bathroom and the kitchen and you can thank everyone for visiting your home with a vinyl sign by the door.
  2. Glass Block

  3. Glass blocks can be used to make fascinating vinyl lettering projects. You can use the standard window glass blocks as bookends with your initials on them in vinyl, or as door stops with a your family name on them. You can get vinyl that looks like frosted etching and make some beautiful signs of someone’s initials, or even your favorite number. Place a light behind your glass blocks to add to the effect. Try differently colored bulbs to see which one looks the best. You can put your design on a hollow glass block and place a candle inside for added effect.
  4. Wood Blocks

  5. By doing something as simple as cutting a piece of wood into blocks, you can create a home project that will add color and beauty to your home. Make a block for each member of the family, mount a picture on each block and then write the person’s name in vinyl. The advantage of vinyl is that you can create and cut the entire design as one piece. This may be easier than trying to paint a person’s name on the block by hand. You can also make smaller blocks with individual letters on them as play blocks for your children.

The Perfect Wedding Gift – Glass Etching

We are in the peak of the wedding season and it seems like it becomes increasingly harder to find that perfect weeding gift. At The Wall Works we offer glass etching. Glass etching is placing a pre-spaced and pre-designed cut out of our vinyl lettering to a specific area. This can be placed on any glass surface. The most popular seem to be glasses, vases, business windows and doors, as well as my favorite the Pyrex baking pan. After you apply the vinyl lettering stencil you place a small amount of the “glue” that we include in your order. You let it dry and rinse it off. And that’s really how easy, quick, and simple glass etching is. Glass etching a newlyweds last name into a Pyrex dish adds such elegance and uniqueness to any wedding gift as well helping you save money.

You can etch any design or any quote or lettering into any glass area, it is not limited. We can create a custom image for you as well as upload one of your current designs. Contact our vinyl lettering custom design team at The Wall Works and we’ll be in contact with you within 24 hours.  As always, we offer the lowest prices in vinyl lettering and lead the industry with our cutting edge technology.

Matte vs. Glossy Vinyl – How to choose

At The Wall Works we offer a variety of colors and various finishes of vinyl. The different kinds of vinyl are matte and glossy.

The main difference between matte and glossy vinyl is the finish. If you’ve ever sent film in to be developed, you have the option of glossy or matte finish on your photographs. Compare those two finishes and you will get a pretty good idea of the differences in matte and glossy vinyl. Another comparison is black patent leather shoes versus regular black leather shoes. The patent leather is very smooth finish with a coat of gloss over the color. Glossy vinyl looks similar and also reflects the light in the same way as your patent leather shoes or your glossy photograph.  It is really a personal preference and both look great.

Matte vinyl has a textured finish and does not glare under lighting.

In order to choose the right vinyl for your particular project, you’ll need to get a feel for the difference personalities of matte and glossy vinyl:

Matte Vinyl

1. Does not glare when indoor light hits it.

2. Has a textured finish.

3. Has an adhesive that is easily removed, even after many years.

4. May not adhere well to certain types of textured walls or textured, unglazed tiles.

5. Outdoor durability is approximately 3 years.

6. Works great on mirrors, glass, most wall surfaces, painted or unfinished boards, and most tile.

Glossy Vinyl

1. Glares when indoor light hits it.

2. Has a smooth finish.

3. Has a more permanent adhesive that is harder to remove from walls. It may even pull paint off the wall after an extended period.

4. Has more colors available.

5. Adheres better to textured walls than matte vinyl.

6. Outdoor durability is approximately 4-8 years, depending on the brand and model number.

7. Works great on mirrors, glass, most wall surfaces, painted or unfinished boards, and tile.

If you still are unsure about which type of vinyl to use, contact us and we will be glad to assist you.

Custom Vinyl Lettering Mongrams

I found this instruction on how to make vinyl lettering monograms:

Creating a custom vinyl lettering monogram can be as simple as using Microsoft Word. All you have to do is create a text box for each initial in your monogram and arrange the boxes so they’re spaced to your satisfaction. Easy!  1. Open Microsoft Word 2. From the DRAWING toolbar, click the “text box” button. 3. Type your initial in the text box you just created. 4. Do this for each initial of your vinyl lettering monogram. (For example, if you’re vinyl lettering monogram is SMT, you’ll need three boxes.) 5. Format your text boxes to feature NO FILL and NO LINE. 6. Now click on each text box and drag it to the placement and spacing that suits you.  Hints & Tips  * For PC users, if you use the arrow keys while holding down the Ctrl key, this will give you more precision in moving the boxes than if using only the mouse. * Use different fonts and color combinations to create a beautiful and unique vinyl lettering monogram.   In addition to Word, some knotties have also had success with making vinyl lettering monograms with Microsoft Powerpoint. For those a little more software savvy, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator are great for designing monograms! It gives me more freedom in design than Word or Powerpoint.  As always at The Wall Works we offer free in house custom designs by our professional staff, free of charge. Send us your ideas and we’ll create them for you. We have the technology to upload your creation or picture into our system and turn it into vinyl for you. So upload your designs or send us what you are trying to create and we can help you and provide free custom design as well.
