What Are Vinyl Wall Decals?
Wall lettering looks like a sticker but it consists of several layers, so the letters are much less flexible than vinyl wallpaper. This type of wall decoration is sometimes also called vinyl lettering or it can be referred to as adhesive lettering.
Vinyl wall lettering is preferable, especially if you want to change the design in a while because this type of decor can be easily removed and replaced with another one or even repainted. Vinyl wall letters are available in many colors, styles, and sizes so you can create your own compositions. If necessary, such wall stickers can also be cut into smaller pieces that will fit any size of a surface.
Decorating Your Walls With Vinyl Wall Lettering
Wall decor with vinyl letters can be used for various purposes. If you are thinking of giving the interior of your room a new look, this type of wall lettering is just what you need! You can turn it into any other design that will match the style of your interior.
If you have an industrial loft apartment, you can install vinyl letters for walls in bright colors to create a contrast against the walls made of bricks or concrete blocks. If you prefer vintage designs, we can custom make some rusty writing on aged paper or parchment; if you want something more modern and minimalistic, there are clean white letters available in many fonts and styles so they will fit most designs without any problems. In addition, vinyl lettering for walls can be used in living rooms or dining rooms to add a decorative touch to the walls.
You also have the option of putting vinyl letters on shelves, cabinets, furniture, and other surfaces in your home where you need some typographic elements that will make an accent. You can also use this type of wall decor outdoors as long as it has waterproof construction. Vinyl wall lettering pieces are available for outside placement because their adhesive layer is fade-resistant and weatherproof.
However, before you buy one of these products it is important to check whether they are made especially for inside or outside placement. There are some differences between decals that can stay indoors versus those designed exclusively for outdoor use.
How to stick letters on the wall?
The first step to hanging wall letters with adhesive is to outline their shape on the wall you want to put them on. Use a pencil and a leveler to make sure that your letters will be placed straight; doing it this way, you can also see where the center of your design will be located more precisely.
After drawing an outline of all lettering pieces, start sticking these elements on your wall one by one using water or some other decal solution instead of glue. Make sure you wait for each vinyl letter to dry properly before moving on to the next one; if needed, use a blow-dryer to speed up this process and make everything go more quickly and easily.
