FAQ

What is Vinyl Lettering or Viny Graphics

Our Vinyl letters and Vinyl Graphics are all cut out of high quality professionally graded coloured vinyl to last 5-7 years. When your vinyl product arrives it has 3 layers. It has bottom layer ( backing ) when peeled off exposes the self adhesive glue on the back of the vinyl which you will use to stick to the window . It has a middle layer ( the Vinyl ) – that stick to the window and a Top Layer ( the application tape ) which you use to guide and place the vinyl on the surface. It also holds all the vinyl pieces together… it may be a line of text or a graphic logo or a group of lines of text that can be laid down on the surface as one object. When the bottom layer is taken off and the middle layer is firmly pressed onto the surface and the top layer is peeled away, the vinyl will have glass showing through the spaces between the vinyl. There is no application tape or backing showing through the vinyl as you will remove it in its application.

What Size Letters can you cut ?

We can cut letters from 20mm high right up to 450 mm high

Where do I measure my font height ?

The letter size height of any capital in your sentence will be the selected height of that font, All other lower-case letters may be slightly larger or smaller depending on hanging or ascending parts of the letter eg P or y can be longer as it hangs below the base line of normal letters like a,e,o,u etc . It therefore may be better to use all CAPS instead to get an exact line height you want and not too be confused between caps and lower-case letters.

Will there be a background behind my vinyl letters or graphic?

No, Letters are individually cut not printed.

What is Weeding Vinyl ?

After the artwork is composed on the CAD program and sent to the vinyl machine for cutting. It comes out of the machine ( custom sized ) with tiny cut lines of the design scored onto the piece of vinyl. We then have to manually, with tweezers, lift off the background the vinyl not needed to leave the design or letters behind.

What Is a Vector File?

A vector file is a graphics file that contains a vector image, rather than a raster, or bitmapped, image. Shapes and lines make up vector graphics, which are fully scalable images, while raster images are made of pixels and cannot be scaled up without loss. Graphic designers prefer vector images for logos and line art because they can be converted to a wide range of sizes without distorting the image.
