VINYL HOW-TO

New to vinyl? It's so fun AND super easy...a lot of people refer to vinyl as the look of hand-painted lettering...without all the work! Check out this video and learn how to apply vinyl so you can create your own creative masterpieces...



In this video, you are shown how to apply vinyl to a metal enamel surface, but you can use the same principles to apply vinyl to almost any surface--glass, canvas, wood and so much more!

Here are the basics:

1. Place vinyl (face up) on a flat, hard surface. Burnish vinyl with credit card or squeegee.

2. Flip over and peel off the backing at a sharp angle.

3. Position vinyl face up on top of your surface.

4. Using a squeegee or credit card, burnish vinyl to surface.

5. Starting in one of the corners, peel back the masking tape layer at a sharp angle. If a letter does not initially come off, place masking tape back down, burnish a little more and it should glide off just fine.

Enjoy!
