What type of lettering is this?
These are adhesive backed, pre-spaced, individually cut letters that press on your wall or any flat surface. The letters arrive on a sheet of paper with a layer of transfer paper over the letters. A step by step instruction guide is included with your shipment or by clicking here. After removing the backing paper and pressing the sheet to your wall, gently remove the transfer paper and only the lettering will remain. The letters are thin... equivalent to about 2-3 coats of paint, so they give you the look of hand-painted stenciling without the time and trouble.
 
     
 
What does "pre-spaced" mean?
Pre-spaced means that we do all the positioning and spacing of the letters and words for you. So if you choose a wall phrase like "Live, Laugh, Love" the lettering arrives exactly as you see it on your computer screen. It comes to you as a single roll of text which you can apply all at once. You can even cut each word and place them in a creative layout of your own desire. The possibilities are endless!
 
     
 
Can I make up my own quote?
Yes, you can. Type your own quote by clicking here and entering the text you wish to see. Include a brief description of the layout, the name of the font if known, and color to be used. Our design team will respond quickly to you with your very own unique design.
 
     
 
What surface types can this be applied to?
This type of lettering sticks to almost any smooth or lightly textured surface including painted walls, glass, mirrors, and smooth metal and wood. It will not stick to rough or uneven surfaces such as cinder block, brick, porous aluminum, or stucco surfaces.
 
     
 
Newly painted surface or walls?
We recommend waiting at least 2 - 3 weeks before applying vinyl graphics to newly painted surfaces. If the paint is not allowed to fully cure, the vinyl may permanently adhere to your wall and would not be removable.
 
     
 

Is the lettering removable?
Yes and it's easy to do. Expressive Living vinyl letters work well for both renters and homeowners because they come off when you are ready for them to. To remove, grasp on the corner of each letter using your fingernail or tweezers and gently pull off the lettering. If you've had the lettering on the wall for a long period of time, you can soften them up by using a hair dryer.

CAUTION: As dark-painted (such as burgundy, navy blue, dark brown) walls age, they tend to lighten a bit because of sun exposure. If you remove the lettering years from now on such walls, you may see a "ghosting effect" in the shape of the letters.
