Tired of the same old lettering on your shop window? Want to remove it and install new decals and fresh lettering? Eventually you’ll have to remove old stuff to make way for new and attractive ads. Guess what! You can do it with a little help from an expert. There are different ways of removing vinyl lettering. Picking the right method usually is highly dependant on the surface the vinyl is being removed from.
If removing vinyl from glass, this can usually be done with relative ease. A razor blade can be used to get the vinyl up and then it can usually be peeled off. If the vinyl has been there a while or been exposed to lots of sun, it can become from hard and brittle and will need to be scraped off. Sometimes wetting the vinyl and then using a scraper to remove the vinyl is necessary. Heat guns can help loosen the glue and help in removing old, dry vinyl.
If removing vinyl from walls, it can be a little tricky. if the vinyl has been placed on a good painted surface, the may peel up with little damage to the wall. If placed on wallpaper, the vinyl could rip the paper if removing it. So be careful and prepared to do a little patch work on drywall.
Once your vinyl lettering is out you are likely to have a tough time cleaning the surface off residual adhesive. Remember the quality of vinyl wrap and adhesive that was used impacts the removal process. So when you consider using vinyl lettering and decals, you must pick high quality stuff.
