What surfaces does your vinyl stick to?
Our vinyl will stick to most non-porous, clean surfaces. When you think non-porous, think smooth!! You want something smooth and clean like glass, plastic or metal that will allow the adhesive on the back of the vinyl to evenly adhere to the substrate.
You can stick our vinyl to an uneven surface such as wood or canvas, but the surface must be properly prepared (usually by applying a paint, primer or varnish).
Remember that all of our vinyl, except for the Matte Removable line, has a permanent adhesive and will, on average, stick for up to five years outdoors. Our vinyl is also NOT heat transfer vinyl, which is meant to be used on fabrics such as shirts.
Is your vinyl dishwasher safe?
While you can put our vinyl in the dishwasher, we highly recommend hand washing any items with our vinyl to help prolong the life of your beautiful project!
What is the Matte Removable line?
We have 33 matte finish colors in the MR line, ranging from Tiff Blue to Magenta to Black. The adhesive is removable, which means you can apply it to walls or glass and it will remove cleanly for up to 2 years. This film is great for kids’ rooms, classrooms or just about anywhere where you want a little color for just a little bit!
