If you’ve never applied vinyl letters before, the process can seem pretty intimidating at first. You don’t want to “mess up” and get the letters crooked. Or even worse, botch the job so badly you have to buy another set and start all over again.
Sign companies are able to use these fears as leverage because as long as you don’t know how easy it is to apply vinyl graphics yourself, you have to pay the “professionals” to do it for you.
