Vinyl lettering is attached to glass with a strong adhesive. It can be used as decoration or used by businesses to advertise something. When it's time to take down the vinyl lettering, the process can be somewhat difficult. Some special techniques can be used to remove the lettering so the removal process is easier and the glass isn't scratched in the process.
Things You'll Need
- Blow dryer
- Razor blade
- Rubbing alcohol
Turn on a blow dryer, and set it to a low heat setting.
Point the blow dryer at the vinyl lettering for 30 seconds, and then turn it off.
Slide the blade of a razor blade under one corner of a vinyl letter.
Start pulling up the rest of the vinyl lettering once you get one corner up.
Dampen a cloth with rubbing alcohol, and rub off any adhesive residue with the cloth.
