Application & Installation
We realize that since this is vinyl lettering, it is often a primary concern..."How do you stick it on the wall?" "Can I remove it, and if I do, will it hurt my paint?" "What if I mess it up?!"
We understand, and we want to make it easy for you! That's what's exciting - it's so, so simple. Read below for step by step instructions. If you still think you can't get it done. We are now offering INSTALLATION for the surrounding Kentuckiana areas. Details following these Application Instructions.
2. It will be sent to you in a row(s) of type. For example, you might receive it in one 4 ft section of two rows, or three 4 ft sections of one row; it all depends on what you order. Due to this fact, it will be rolled for shipping. So first, lay your scripture out on a table so it can unroll itself. It shouldn't take long. The verses have a transfer tape on one side and backing paper on the other. Rub the surface of transfer tape to insure the verse is adhered solidly to the transfer tape. (Letters may pull away from transfer tape during shipping)
3. Use a tape measure or ruler to determine exactly where you want your verse to be placed. Words can be cut apart and stacked in rows, put on an angle, or arranged around and on windows and doors. Taping them lightly in place first will help you plan your layout.
After you've designed the layout, spot tape the sections up on the wall (still with both sides of the paper attached); Be sure to measure the letters and not the paper itself; the paper is not cut level.
4. Once you have the scripture exactly where you want to adhere it to the wall, you need to secure it with more tape. If you are working with a very long row, you may want to tape the top completely from one end to the other. This is especially true when you have more than one row on the same piece of paper. This will act as a hinge. Again, if the scripture is especially long, take your scissors and cut between words so you can adhere one section at a time.
5. Working on one section at a time, raise the section up and peel away the glossy paper backing. Peel from the taped end first. Using your burnishing tool (anything you want to scrap with that has a very flat, blunt end - not a sharp end; I use a Pampered Chef stone widget) begin to burnish the scripture onto the wall to ensure a good stick.
6. Slowly peel off the transfer tape. Watch carefully that all the letters are coming off the transfer tape and staying attached to the wall. If the edge of a letter looks like it doesn't want to let go of the paper, just lay it back down and burnish it a bit more.
7. After that, sit back and soak up His inspiration that has just been brought to your wall!
If you should improperly install a word or letter, you might try to carefully peel it off and reattach it. I have had this to work for myself in the past, but not every time. Just take your time and have fun blessing your walls!!
