No graphics necessary! Cut vinyl vehicle lettering is designed to clearly and easily identify or advertise on any moving or stationary vehicle. Cut vinyl vehicle lettering is easy to install and remove (when necessary) without having to paint the information onto your vehicle.

Cut vinyl vehicle lettering is the very economical when all you need is basic letters and/or numbers on your vehicle for identification. For example DOT numbers (or state specific vehicle operation numbers); vessel identification numbers; websites, company name and phone number; boat name or even personalized inspirational messages. Cut vinyl vehicle lettering is also great to number and identify fleet vehicles.

The adhesive vinyl material, we use for lettering or numbering vehicles, comes on 50 yd. rolls in various pre-determined colors ready to be placed on a plotter machine for cutting. Our plotter machine cuts out the shapes of the letters/numbers and then the excess material is weeded away (pulled off and discarded) leaving only the lettered information, pre-spaced and intact, to be able to apply as one piece. As soon as the lettering has been weeded we place a very low-tack transfer liner on top of the lettering to keep the lettering in place for easy application. Please view our How-To-Apply Video for installation tips and tricks before applying your cut vinyl vehicle lettering.

When it comes to a specific font, we currently have over 200 fonts to choose from. Since the font list is so large, we currently don't display any font options online, but when ordering your cut vinyl vehicle lettering, please feel free to suggest a specific font name or you can discuss font options with one of our competent sales team staff.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What does "lettering only" mean?

When referring to "lettering only" it simply means that you are purchasing text or numbers at a specific size and color without graphics. The "lettering only" option can be single or several lines of text/numbers or a combination thereof (for vehicles, windows or walls). The lettering is cut-to-shape out of a sheet of pre-determined adhesive vinyl colors, with the excess material weeded away (pulled or picked out), leaving just the lettering/numbering in place to be applied as one whole, pre-spaced piece.

What type of vinyl do you recommend for vehicle lettering?

We always recommend and quote our High Performance (Premium) vinyl for vehicle lettering. The reason for this is that the high performance vinyl has a more aggressive adhesive and sticks better to the curves of vehicle. Also, high performance vinyl, hast a longer life expectancy in harsh environments. Standard (Intermediate) vinyl can be used for vehicles, but we have found through the years, that our premium vinyl is a better product for all vehicle types and only costs pennies more than standard vinyl.

Where do I find color or font choice options on your website.

Currently we carry over 200 fonts and 35 premium vinyl colors choices that would be too extensive to list online. We carry a lot of basic fonts that are easily recognizable by name (i.e. Arial, Helvetica, Futura, etc.) But if you have a specific font in mind, we probably have a font to match it.) As for colors, we carry all the standards (Black, Red, Green, Blue, White, etc.) and then some. Please give one of our friendly sales staff a call today at (866) 267-4467 to discuss your "lettering only" color/font options  for vehicles. Or submit an online vinyl letter quotation form, explaining your font and color needs, and one of our sales staff will contact you accordingly.

What if I need graphics in accordance with my lettering?

If you are in need of graphics to accentuate your vinyl lettering, please give us a call at (866) 267-4467 or submit an online vinyl graphics quotation form. When submitting quotation information, please be as descriptive as possible and attach any and all images (artwork) that may help us obtain accurate pricing for you.
