What is Vinyl Lettering?
Vinyl lettering is a popular option for truck lettering because it is durable, long-lasting, and easy to apply. Vinyl is a type of plastic that is resistant to fading, peeling, and cracking. This means it can withstand the elements and the wear and tear of daily use on a truck. Additionally, vinyl lettering can be cut into a wide variety of shapes and sizes. It is a versatile option for creating custom designs. Another advantage of vinyl lettering is that it can be easily removed without causing damage to the truck’s paint. This makes it a convenient option for when the owner wants to change the design or the truck is sold.
How long should I expect vinyl lettering to hold up outside on my truck?
Vinyl lettering can hold up for several years when applied to a truck, depending on the conditions it is exposed to and the quality of the vinyl used. High-quality vinyl lettering made with UV-resistant inks and a laminate coating can last for up to 7 years, even in direct sunlight. However, the longevity can vary depending on the climate, the level of exposure to the sun, and the level of care that is taken to maintain the lettering. Factors like regular washing and waxing, as well as parking in shaded areas, can help prolong the life of the vinyl lettering.
