How to Guide: Vinyl Signs to Slimline Dividers


What you will need:

  • Masking Tape
  • Anything with a flat, straight edge e.g. ruler, credit card, spatula or squeegee
  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • Spray bottle - with warm water and a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid

How are my signs supplied?

Vinyl lettering is adhesive and consist of three layers:

  1. Top Layer - Transfer paper through which you can see the vinyl letters
  2. Middle layer - The vinyl lettering
  3. Bottom layer -Backing paper

Step 1

Place the slimline divider onto its  back edges, so that the front of the divider is facing the roof. The rounded back corners should be on the top of the divider.

Step 2

Clean your divider surface and ensure it is dry before commencing application.

Step 3

Place your vinyl sign sheet on the front of the slimline divider.

Step 4

Stick a piece of masking tape across the top of the sheet to adhere it to the slimline divider, creating a hinge.

Step 5

Ensure that the sign is straight by measuring to either the top or bottom edge of the slimline divider. 

Step 6

Flip up the sign sheet and spray the surface of the slimline divider with your spray bottle.

Step 7

Peel off the backing paper. Be careful that the vinyl lettering remains attached to the transfer paper. The masking tape is now working as a hinge.

Step 8

Slowly lower down the transfer paper and working from top to bottom, firmly press down  (with straight edged implement) to smooth out any bubbles as you lower the sheet. Leave for an hour to adhere to the surface.

Step 9

Carefully peel off the transfer paper, from the top to reveal your letters. If you notice any letters are pulling up with the transfer paper, re-rub onto the surface and work any bubbles to the nearest edge.

Step 10

Gently dry with a cloth.
