Vinyl Lettering suitable Surface Requirements
 
 

When applying self adhesive vinyl lettering and pre-spaced signs, it is important that you apply the product to a suitable surface to which ithe vinyl will readily adhere. The following lists contain a brief summary of acceptable surfaces along with some surfaces that are not.

The good news is: Vinyl will stick to many surfaces. In determining whether your intended surface is adequate, keep in mind that, as a general rule of thumb, vinyl will stick to almost any surface that is clean and either smooth or nonporous.

Acceptable surfaces are

  • Glass
  • Metals (Must be painted with a smooth, glossy enamel.)
  • Vehicles (Must be painted with a smooth, glossy enamel.)
  • Vinyl or Plastic (Such as Banners, Canopies, flags, etc.)
    Plastic
  • Fiberglass (Must be painted with a smooth, glossy enamel.)
  • Wood (Must be painted with a smooth, glossy enamel.)
  • Other Painted Surfaces (Paint must be smooth and glossy, vinyl will not stick to oxidized, faded, or peeling paint)

Not recommended surfaces

  • Cement
  • Raw Lumber
  • Oxidized or faded paint
  • Peeling paint
  • Rubber
  • Raw Metals
  • Oily Surfaces
These lists are not comprehensive and there are other acceptable and unacceptable substrates or surfaces other than those listed above. When in doubt, apply the rule that states vinyl will generally adhere well to smooth, glossy and clean surfaces. Rough, dull, peeling, porous or dirty surfaces, on the other hand, will probably not produce an acceptable vinyl application.
