Start by cleaning your surface of the frame where you are wanting to place your vinyl lettering.
Make sure to clean off any debris or loose dirt on the frame to cause the vinyl not to adhere correctly.

After cleaning decide where you want the vinyl lettering on the frame and make sure you mark the position so when applying the vinyl lettering itself you won’t have any issues.

(Optional) Lightly spray frame with application fluid if needed and apply lettering. This gives the vinyl lettering a little more wiggle room incase of any mess ups.

Gently peel off the paper backing from your vinyl lettering.



Once the backing is removed, place your vinyl lettering on your surface.


Carefully with some pressure, squeegee the vinyl onto the frame working from the middle outward.
