San Mateo California is an interesting place. One of its most famous residents is the actor Al Pacino. If you’re a fan, then you may also have a few pieces of memorabilia from the movie, including a few vinyl letters that were placed around the town in the 1980s. Now, you can enjoy wall murals featuring Al Pacino and his memorable phrases on your walls!
Vinyl graphics and vinyl signs can be utilized on just about any surface and with any purpose from simple vinyl lettering for vehicles to vinyl banners on the side of your business to large-scale murals covering the entire city. Some folks even use them in interior design and art projects. No matter what you use these signs for, it’s important to keep in mind the basic guide on how to decorate with them. Wall murals are typically square and are designed with four simple elements, which are a center or ‘v’ for the lettering, background color (usually white or off-white in a rectangular shape), three other colored borders, and a fourth thinner vertical border. It’s the artwork or designs that make up the sides of the square or rectangular sign.
One thing that you need to pay close attention to when using these types of decals or vinyl letters is the aspect ratio. This aspect ratio refers to the ratio between the height of the sign and the actual vertical height of the vinyl sign itself. You’ll also want to think about using basic black text on a white background, so keep this in mind as well. Another thing to consider is whether you want to use a solid color on the vinyl lettering or background, or something like a gradient, gradated color, or a combination of colors. These two things will play a big role in your choice of graphic.
To produce quality vinyl signs, it’s important to choose a graphics printer that uses a rigid substrate printing process. Using a non-rigid substrate will produce sloppy looking vinyl lettering and graphics. On the other hand, a rigid substrate will produce sharp, clean images that are not only easier to read, but will also be more resistant to fading and peeling. Usually, these printers are available with a variety of different software packages including desktop publishing programs and high-end digital imaging software, which will allow you to produce professional looking graphics quickly and easily.
If you have your own graphics creation software, you can also experiment with various textured vinyl letters in a variety of colours. You can use different shades of reds, blues, yellows, and even UV colours to create some really interesting effects. Think about incorporating some of your own artwork into your Vinyl Stickers, or using photos that you have scanned in. This way, you can personalise the look of the sign and make it uniquely yours, just as you would with any other piece of art work.
