Q. What are the letters made of?
A: Our lettering ia made of a very thin, flexible vinyl. They are backed with a light adhesive for easy application to walls or other smooth surfaces.
Q. Will it all be on one big sticker with a clear background?
A: No, each letter is an individual piece, and all letters are prepositioned using an application tape that is removed after applying your lettering. So no clear background, and no lining up individual letters.
Q. Are the colors on the website exact color matches to the product I’ll receive?
A: We make every effort to accurately represent product colors. However, due to the nature of computer monitors, the actual color of products may vary slightly. To see actual product color, request a free color sample.
Q. What types of surfaces can Vinyl Craft Lettering be applied to?
A: Lettering can be applied to just about any clean, smooth, and weather-resistant surface that is free of dust, grease, or other contaminates. Lettering may not adhere to heavily-textured surfaces, but can adhere to lightly textured walls. We strongly discourage installation of lettering on certain surfaces such as brick, stucco, concrete block, suede paints and sand paints.
In very rare occurrences, a surface may not release an statement without causing damage. Please request a free sample to test your surface before placing an order.
Q. Can lettering be installed on wallpaper?
A: Yes. Lettering can be applied to certain types of wallpaper; however, wallpaper can vary widely in texture and quality. Also, some lettering may not release from certain wallpapers without causing damage. Please request a free sample to test your surface before placing an order.
Q. Will Vinyl Craft Lettering adhere to all paints?
A: Our lettering installs easily on the most common types of home decorating paints, such as latex- and oil-based. They will also work on other paints, although some highly textured paints or paints with additives can make application extremely difficult.
Examples of paints that fall into this category are faux, magnetic, sand, and suede paints. Before ordering, please request a free sample and test in an inconspicuous area to see whether the letteringt will work with your paint.
Q. What type of lettering is this?
A: These are pre-pasted, pre-spaced, individually cut letters that press on your wall or any flat surface. These are not decals with clear film around the letters, but rather individually cut letters that have been pre-spaced for you. The letters arrive on a sheet of paper which adheres to your wall. After pressing the sheet to your wall, you pull it back and only the lettering remains. The letters are thin... equivalent to about 2-3 coats of paint, so they give you the look of hand-painted stenciling without the time and trouble. And they don't fade or crack.
Q. What does "pre-spaced" mean? And can I place the lettering on multiple lines and places?
A: Pre-spaced means that we do all the positioning and spacing of the letters and words for you. So if you choose a wall phrase like "Live well, Laugh often, Love much" the lettering arrives exactly as you see it on your computer screen. The lettering arrives as a single roll of text which you can apply all at once, or you can cut the sheet of lettering in any increment you choose to make your quote 2 or more lines. You can even cut each word and place them in a creative layout. The possibilities are limitless.
Q. How long does it take for an order to process?
A: Your order is shipped no later than 5 business days from the date of your order if you pay by credit card.
Q. Is the lettering removable?
A: Yes and it's easy to do. Vinyl Craft Lettering wall letters work well for both renters and homeowners because they come off when you are ready for them to. To remove, get a grip on the corner of each letter using your fingernail or tweezers and gently pull off the lettering. If you've had the lettering on the wall for a long period of time, you can soften them up by using a hair dryer. As dark- painted walls age, they tend to lighten a bit because of sun exposure. If you remove the lettering years from now you may see a ghosting effect in the shape of the letters.
