Think of your vinyl lettering sheet in 3D ...

3 layers

Your vinyl arrives as a pre-spaced sheet of letters made up of three layers ... (1) the top layer - or transfer tape (through which you can see the letters) (2) the middle layer - which are the letters themselves and (3) the bottom layer - or white/blue shiny backing paper.

(If your order has been shipped, gently press the vinyl sheet flat before proceeding with instructions.)

Position your vinyl sheet on the wall, centering the letters, and securing it with masking or painting tape. (The tape acts as a hinge for the project.) You can see the lettering through its semi-transparent top layer.

Flip the lettering sheet upward and slowly peel off the bottom layer. Let the lettering rest on the semi-transparent top layer. (If the lettering wants to stick to the backing, slowly manipulate the backing to help the letters stick to the top layer.)

Use some kind of hard but gentle edge like a large tongue depressor, wide popsicle stick, or plastic scraper, and firmly rub over the semi-transparent top layer to secure the lettering to your wall. Work from the center out on both sides letting the edger act as a squeegee over the lettering.

Then, carefully peel off the sticky top layer to reveal your letters.

REMOVAL: When it comes time to remove your vinyl letters, remember that the heat of a blow dryer will soften the vinyl and make it easier to peel off.
