We're confident anyone can install our vinyl lettering! Our installation instructions are located here
Depending on what part of our site you are using the vinyl we use will vary. For vehicle, boat, and window we are using the same class of vinyl. 6 year sustained outdoor rated calendared vinyl. We don't mention brands because we can vary depending on stocks available.
Wall Lettering - In the case of wall lettering we use Oracal 631 which is designed specifically for walls. This vinyl is removable without residue and has a matte finish in order to provide minimal glare indoors.
Specialty Colors - Our specialty colors signify actual rolls of specialty colors we stock. For example our carbon fiber vinyl is in fact a roll of textured carbon fiber material, not printed to simulate the effect. Specialty colors vary wildly in durability. Generally these colors last 3 years or more. We have seen longer and it depends on what you purchase as to how long it will last.
Etched Glass - This vinyl is a special case which is specifically designed for use on windows. This is semi transparent to mimic the effect of etching. Durability should be 6 years or more.
Digitally Printed - Our digitally printed colors signify colors that we reproduce by printing on a 6 colors digital solvent printer. The end result basically the same as you designed. We print and then contour cut the lettering out so it can achieve the digital effects you choose. Digitally printed vinyl is superior in several ways because it does feature a clear UV laminate by default and is produced on an air release vinyl that eliminates bubbles during installation.
Unfortunately we have a closed facility and cannot allow on site pickups.
Sorry, we cannot do design work at this time. We encourage you to bring us your logo or print ready design and we can then produce it in vinyl. However, we cannot create you something from scratch. If you can't quite get what you want using the online tool and need us to tweak it (you already know what you want) then that is not a problem.

The size you typed in is the size of the overall design and has no correlation to the height of the capital letters. We clearly show a ruler on the design tool so you can visualize the size you are getting. If you desire a very specific capital letter height then we ask you size your lettering as close as possible to the size you want then leave a comment on the shopping cart page to alert of us this.
Why don't you just sell lettering by the capital letter height? That is much more simple!
While measuring by the capital letter height is useful for several types of lettering it is often more useful to know exact size of the lettering you are purchasing. The majority of customers have specific space requirements and need to know the exact size of their graphic. By selling lettering at the overall size we can be sure the lettering will fit in the space you require.
