3) Mission Statements!

Let them know what you stand for! Let them see it clear as day! Hang it high and with pride! Since your mission statement describes the core of your business, you definitely want those you do business with to know what it is – to know your core values, and by extension to know you. So, put them up!

Here are a few stimulating mission statements:

Business Mission Statement Vinyl Lettering

4) Instructions

Let them know where they’re going and when! Vinyl lettering is perfect for hours of operation, product displays, product specials, restrooms, and more!

For example, a customer in your business might turn to his/her companion and ask, “When do they close?” then swing around blindly searching for the answer as if just the simple act of asking a question produces an answer. But Smarty Pants You and your company have already anticipated this way of thinking and compensated for it.

So, with wide eyes, you slowly point to the posted vinyl hours of operation. These customers stare in wonder at your company’s foresight, and instantly generate respect for you and your company.

And just like that, you’ve generated another loyal customer for your company! Keep it up, and you might just get a promotion!

Business Hours Custom Vinyl Lettering

Use wall vinyl to label areas of your business for communicative purposes. Please observe below:

10 Ways Vinyl Lettering Might Surprise You

Welcome to the widely-undiscovered, real world of vinyl! How do people love to use vinyl lettering?

Let’s count the ways: walls, cars, boats, windows, tiles, canvas pictures, street signs, and almost any surface!

As in other art expressions, the opportunities are forever endless.

My purpose today is to further open your eyes to the dazzling, splendiferous, happily versatile World of Vinyl Lettering!

Top 10 Ways to Use Vinyl Lettering

1) Home Décor – Walls, Ceilings, Floors, & Do-Dad Decorations

Label your kids’ rooms, places, spaces, and faces! (I’m actually not sure if vinyl could go on skin, but for our purposes, I’ll just go ahead and advise against that one.)

2) On Your Boat – Your Boat’s Name & Registration Info

Personally, I don’t own a boat, but if I did I would name it “The Little Spirit” and use bright pink vinyl lettering with a thick, dark, metallic grey shadow behind the letters.

3) In Your Place of Business’ Windows

Put it on the windows INSTEAD of spending thousands of dollars on other signage. $50 Vinyl Wall Lettering or $2,000 sign, hmm… you do the math. And if you can’t, join my club, and I’ll give you the bottom line–the $50 one is cheaper and just as professional!

4) On Wood – The Kind in Your House or Other Such Establishment

Put vinyl on your front door! Check out what these people did! They’re ‘why not?’ people. Me likey!

5) On Tile – Kitchen & Bathroom – Which is Actually Not That Uncommon

I see all these crazy, radical people putting cool sayings in their kitchens and bathrooms, and I think to myself, “Yes! Rock on you guys!”

Family Matters Family is Everything Families Are Forever Family First

6) In Your Classroom!

Calling all teachers – decorate please! Jazz up your classroom environment with a cool message:

Please Excuse the Mess My Students Are Learning
Please Excuse the Mess My Students Are Learning

7) What about a Metal Surface?

Like A Filing Cabinet or Metal Message Board? Or your fridge?? I’ve seen a lot of people put diet reminders on their fridges – handwritten post-its, dinky little magnets, but what if you had a beautiful, uplifting way to remind yourself of your commitment to your diet? You could use this witty line, “Bigger snacks mean bigger slacks” or this quote I found by Jim Davis, “Avoid fruits and nuts. You are what you eat.”:P Yeah, it’s a little out there, but who knows? You might want to check into this idea. Some of the greatest ideas were ridiculed before being called genius!

8) Seasonal Decorations!

Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah – Do your holidays right, and impress your guests! Your vinyl lettering just might be a hot topic during your holidays. And it just might not be. But I can tell you, it’s one of those self-expression things that people love to admire. 🙂

9) Brag About your Kids (mobile – ily)!

In style, of course! Make them (and you 🙂 look really good by putting vinyl lettering on your car windows. People love to read things about how great your children are! It’s true!

You Are My Sunshine Caroline and Lily
You Are My Sunshine Caroline and Lily

10) And Of Course, Signs Galore!

Plastic sidewalk signs, signs for conferences, and signs for events (parties, weddings, and religious ceremonies!) Love this one:

 

Welcome to the Armadillo Bar & Grill Chat n' Chew and Ketchup Too!
Welcome to the Armadillo Bar & Grill Chat n’ Chew and Ketchup Too!

Top 10 – bam! Oh, but the list goes on and on and on. That’s what Google tells me anyway, and I believe everything I read. As should you, but when you click out of this blog, feel free to become skeptical again. 😉

Caitlin’s Conclusion about the World of Vinyl Lettering:

Every morning I wake up and look at my vinyl-aly decorated wall first, and what a simplistically splendid way to start my day! I think to myself, “Self, you did that. And it looks awesome. What other awesome

things are you going to do today?” Positive affirmations never hurt anyone!

So, to whoever invented the World of Vinyl Lettering, I send my thanks:

Thank you for creating an easy way to take my decorating passions and pursuits to the next level. Thank you for giving me a way to impress those I love and those I don’t love around me with my creativity.

Thank you for enhancing our lives with such a blissfully versatile, beautifully user-friendly tool.

Decorating with Vinyl Lettering-Linda with Craftaholics Anonymous

We’re excited to announce a series of upcoming blog posts with some of our colleagues and customers who use vinyl for their businesses.

Today we’re thrilled to speak with Linda, the brains and inspiration behind Craftaholics Anonymous and RuffledBegonia.etsy.com. She shares what it’s like to be a pro blogger and craft designer with young children. Thanks, Linda!

P.S. Have you seen how cute her patterns are at RuffledBegonia? Wow!

**If you or your business would like to be interviewed, please drop us a line.**

How do you juggle your writing, business, two little kids, and your craftaholism?

It’s not easy, that’s for sure!! What helps me a lot is to prioritize my tasks. Each day I set 1-2 goals that I would like to get done for my blog, decide the best way to accomplish them, and then hope for the best!! With two young kids, my schedule has to be flexible and my family always comes first. So if I don’t get done what I had hoped to, that’s ok. I do the best I can!

One other thing that I have found is if I need to get something done on my computer, to avoid social media sites until I’m done with my task(s). I get on, get my writing/photo editing done, and then if I have time, then I go to my Facebook or twitter pages. Those sites can sap your time very quickly and waste the precious moments you have before the baby wakes up.

Craftaholics Anonymous
Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous

How did you transition your blog to a business with advertising and sponsors?

Very good question! When I felt my following was large enough to offer value to sponsors, I simply created a button on my sidebar that said, “Advertise Here” with a link to an advertising page with more info.

Were you nervous when you had to give up alphabetizing your pantry?

Yes. After having kids, losing control of how clean/organized my house was a tough transition. I was a clean freak before the kids came. I thrived on cleaning my house very regularly. When I could no longer do that, it stressed me out! Watching my child with spaghetti covered fingers wipe his hands on everything in sight was about more than I could handle! LOL! Now I am very used to messes and lots of them with 2 little boys! haha

What have you changed in your house lately?

I just redid my Master Bedroom! (I love how it turned out! the gray, yellow, and black came together so nicely!)

I love tweaking and changing things around our home! We are currently trying to sell our house, so when I change the decor or layout of a room, buyers are like, “It looks nothing like the pictures on your listing!” It kind of makes me laugh because my home almost never looks the same week to week!

Awesome master bed remodel
Linda’s awesome master bed remodel

Do you have any upcoming projects you’re excited about?

I just opened up a pattern shop, RuffledBegonia.etsy.com and I’ve got some really awesome ideas for a couple patterns! And yes, most of them include ruffles 🙂

Have you ever had a craft project go terribly wrong and were your kids involved?

Oh yes, I have had plenty of projects go COMPLETELY wrong! lol! One that makes me giggle is when I tried to cover a tennis ball with strips of red and cream toile fabric for an accent in my front room. The print was mainly cream with the design in red so when I was done covering the tennis ball, it looked like a bloody eyeball!!! It was aw*ful! Luckily it was right before Halloween, so I just stuck a googly eye on it and embraced the ugliness!

What bloggers do you love reading?

Ever since the baby was born in October, I haven’t had time to read blogs. But I used to love reading Pioneer Woman (who doesn’t?!) and Centsational Girl. Both fabulous ladies!!

Why is Vinyl Wall Expressions on your “Raves” list?

I love that Vinyl Wall Expressions lets you design your own custom vinyl decals!

Boys room wall border with sticky vinyl cars and trucks decals

Looking for a fun, inexpensive border for a boy’s room? Here’s a great idea from HowDoesShe.com using pictures of cars and trucks, along with wall words inbetween the art. They made three sets of trucks each in a different color. Then they stuck the trucks to the wall and mixed the colors together so each vehicle had 3 different colors of vinyl on it.

We’re offering the 6 trucks in sets. You can choose whether you want 1, 2, or 3 sets so if you want you can mix the colors like in the tutorial but you don’t have to. Just type the colors you want into the Colors field in the form below.

If you want the wall words also, add them to your cart using the 2nd PayPal button below.

View the tutorial here.

*FREE US SHIPPING for items over $20*

To Buy, choose:

  • set of 6 vehicles (height 6 inches) in 1, 2, or 3 colors (ambulance, fire truck, police car, semi truck, pickup truck, car). Vehicles are pictured below. Colors are pictured below also.
  • set of 4 vinyl words (height 3 inches) in one color “Vroom! Honk! Toot! Beep!”

There will be a separate set of 6 for EACH color, so if you choose 3 colors, you’ll receive 18 vehicles.
