If you’re looking for vehicle vinyl lettering or decals, you’ve come to the right place. Vinyl lettering and decals can help grow your business with brand exposure or simply give your vehicle that personalized touch.
We at TheSignChef.com can provide you with either for a wide range of vehicles; whether you want something for a single delivery van or a fleet of commercial pickup trucks, we’ve got you covered! Our vinyl lettering and decals won’t damage your vehicle’s paint or windows and it is easily removable. Now before we go further, it’s important you understand the difference between vinyl lettering and decals because there is a lot of confusion and misinformation in the marketplace.
Let’s make it simple. There are 2 main main differences between vinyl letters and vinyl decals.
The most obvious difference you’ll see is that decals have a background and vinyl letters don’t. Each letter is contour cut out of a solid color roll of vinyl into individual shapes so there’s absolutely no background. That’s why vinyl letters are still so popular for lettering storefront windows, company vehicles, enclosed utility trailers and interior walls. Of course, vinyl is not limited to just letters because we can just as easily provide any numbers, shapes, graphics or logos you need in any size or color – all with the background removed.
The other main difference is that decals are printed directly onto the vinyl with a weather resistant ink. In fact, our full-color, high definition printer is so versatile there’s no limit as to what we can print! For example, your vinyl decals can be printed with photographic quality pictures, multi-colored logos and even three dimensional letters. If you can see the image you want on your computer screen, we can print it!
But we don’t stop there because instead of a standard rectangle, our sign equipment can contour cut your decals into any custom shape giving you the best of both worlds – unlimited colors and shapes.
So recap there are 2 primary things that separate vinyl letters and decals. Firstly, contour cut vinyl letters don’t have a background while decals do. Secondly, your decals can be printed with absolutely any image or design whereas vinyl letters are typically solid in color.
Now that you can tell the difference between the two, let's get into what our Vinyl Lettering Package offers you:

When it comes to vinyl lettering, there are two big factors to consider: Coverage and UV Protection. “Coverage” refers to how much space the vinyl lettering takes up on your vehicle. We offer 3 types of coverage: low, medium and high. (insert example images) Our vinyl lettering is designed to last, withstanding harsh outdoor elements. However, the degree of UV protection is up to you. We offer 4 different grades: standard, premium, ultra-premium and reflective.
|Grade||Protection||SPF||Life Span (years)|
*Why get reflective? To advertise your business at night! Reflective vinyl letters are 74% brighter to the human eye than non-reflective ones. They light up just like a STOP sign in headlights. If the vehicle in question is driven around often at night, you may want to consider this option.
