vinyl lettering for walls

Custom Vinyl Decal

Vinyl decals are designs printed on special paper that transfers them to a variety of materials, including glass, porcelain, plastic or metal.

A Lettering Direct custom vinyl decal can include text and images. It can be fixed to windows, laptops, vehicles, windows, furniture and other surfaces.

Custom vinyl decals are a great way to make your company’s brand more visible in a variety of locations. They can also be used in the home or to customise your car or bike.

Creating the graphics

Most vinyl decals are usually in a single colour. They can be designed in any vector graphics program, such as Adobe Illustrator or Affinity Designer. Use at least 300dpi resolution and output the file as a .gif, .jpg. .bmp, .png or .tif file. The image can feature the company logo and a message or slogan using any text font.

The decal size is flexible, but most are between 30cm x 50cm and 60cm x 100cm, but could be larger. Bear in mind that very large decals may be more difficult to apply.

Where to use custom vinyl decals

Vinyl decals are traditionally used for making signs, particularly on windows and shop fronts. They can be used anywhere a business wants to make its brand visible. They can be fixed to reception area walls, vehicles, laptops, used as door signs, or fixed to tiles.

Vinyl decals can be used for health and safety purposes too. They can be stuck to clear glass doors to help people notice them, while vinyl decals containing hazard icons are used to warn people of other risks.

Custom vinyl decals are not confined to business use. Many homeowners use vinyl decals to add interest to rooms. They are a favourite of people living in rental property, as they can be easily be removed without damaging the decorating when the tenant moves.
