Using EAD Designs Vinyl Wall Art

Here is some information on Tuesday's Steal....Vinyl Wall Art by EAD designs.

Applying/Removing

Application Instructions

1. Surface Preparation

Use a tape measure or ruler to determine the exact area where the quote/graphic will be placed. It is a good idea to draw a horizontal line, or use masking tape or painters tape for a guide. Make sure your surface is clean and smooth. The vinyl can be installed just about anywhere you want to put them. Painted walls (light and medium texture work fine, including knock down and orange peel) ,wood, furniture, ceramic tile, metal, glass, porcelain, painted brick, wallpaper, bathroom sinks, showers, doors, hardy plank, mail boxes, and much more.

2. Prepare Quote

Some quotes/graphics will come rolled up because of the length. Unroll and let it sit flat until it stops trying to roll itself up again. The vinyl is sandwiched between transfer tape and backing. You want the vinyl to stick to the transfer tape. Before peeling the back paper off, burnish (rub) the surface of the transfer tape to ensure the vinyl is adhered solidly to the transfer tape. (letters may pull away from the transfer tape during shipping)

3. Application

Flip the quote/graphic over a carefully peel the backing away from the quote on an angle, which should remain on the transfer tape. If some of the vinyl sticks to the backing, replace the backing and the vinyl to the tape and rub it again so it sticks to the transfer tape instead. Place the taped vinyl on the prepared surface using your guide or tape to position your vinyl correctly. *The quote cannot be repositioned once it is on your surface, so be careful to line it up where you want it.

4. Burnishing

Using the application stick or credit card carefully and press any air bubbles out from underneath the words. Burnish again and apply more pressure over the entire area.

5. Transfer Tape Removal

CAREFULLY peel back the transfer tape on an angle leaving the vinyl on your surface, If the vinyl tried to come up with the transfer tape, place the tape back on the surface and burnish that area again until the vinyl sticks to your surface.

6. Enjoy your vinyl design creation!

Removal

Removal of your Quotes/Graphics is easy: use a blow dryer over the vinyl and peel them off the surface.

Q. What exactly is vinyl lettering?
A. Vinyl lettering is a pre-pasted, pre-spaced, individually cut letter /saying that gives the look of hand painted stenciling but without the hassle and time. It is very easy to apply and take off and is a beautiful way to decorate any room in your home or office. Our Lettering and Graphics are made only from High Quality Vinyl
Q. Will lettering stick to any surface?
A.
Lettering works great on painted walls, glass, mirrors, metal, tile, paper, wood, most wallpaper, etc. The “orange peel” walls work fine if they are not too lumpy.
Q.Can I re-use my saying?
A.
Once you have removed your lettering it cannot be re-used.
Q. How do I clean around my saying?
A.
Carefully wipe with a clean cloth as you would for painted stenciling.

Q. Can Vinyl letters be used outside?
A. Our vinyl can be used outdoors. Some examples of outdoor use include car windows or car doors, outdoor equipment, mailboxes, store windows and banners. Our vinyl has a five-six year outdoor life.
If applying vinyl to an outdoor surface, be sure that the temperature is at least 50 degrees. If the application surface is too cold, the vinyl will not adhere properly and will peel off.

  5. One more instruction for applying the wall art that's for sale today ... Make sure "every day" is two words. "Everyday" is a modifier, as in everyday people. In the use above, it should be two words.

    :)I'm an editor, and this is one of my growing pet peeves, quickly overtaking it's as possessive (doesn't exist).

    Thanks, lol:)
