Retail Store Vinyl Lettering - Know the vinyl grade before you invest in vinyl lettering - Vinyl lettering is available in many grades and styles. Vinyl lettering can be purchased at your local department store in a stamped vinyl format usually in font heights of 1 to 4 inches. These stamped vnyl letters can be pulled away from the backing and applied on the object that you wish to lable. The grade of store bought vinyl lettering may be unknown. Usually, this grade is a fair to good grade and can be expected to last for a long time indoors but don't expect a long life outdoors.
Custom Made vinyl lettering Pay extra close attention to the grade you are getting
Custsom made vinyl lettering is usually made by a variety of companies but usualy are sign and graphics companies and a few individuals on Ebay. While store bought lettering is generally of decent quality, Custom made vinyl lettering can be made with any grade of vinyl. If the lettering is priced too cheaply to be believable, believe it! Vinyl letters are cut from larger factory rolls on a vinyl blade plotting machine. Any grade of vinyl can be cut including promotional grades of vinyl which are often used on outdoor banners. These promotional grades of vinyl are intended to last only a few months outdoors.
To put this into perspective, 3M's engineer grade reflective vinyl rolls are just over $500.00 per roll in raw cost to the the distributor. This vinyl is among the best vinyl avvailable and can last for a decade outdoors. On the other hand, some promotional vinyls are as little as $18.00 per roll and these won't last outdoors more than 1 summer or 1 winter season. You do get what you pay for.

CDW - Chesapeake: "I bought my boat name lettering decals from a company selling on ebay. It was a heck of a deal, $25.00 for a 40" wide boat name. It looked fantastic. However, it lasted only 13 months before it started to turn up on the edges and curling"
