    Good day, all!

    How would you fit this cut vinyl logo onto glass?

    • Option 1: White vinyl is applied first. Black on top. Black vinyl can overpower the white vinyl.
    • Option 2: OK’ish method
    • Option 3: Kind of a different specification, but works the best for me. Looks cleanest too.
    • Option 4: This option Is not shown, but it is to use the same cut file. However, it is my least preferred one as it is never a perfect cut and I see light and edge.

    I am wondering what you all think?

    how big are the graphics pane?
    i think the size needs to be considered if the accuracy is to be so precise.

    Hi Pane
    Jeff has kind of made valid point in which method should be used.

    If you are installing large etch vinyl panels to glass with text already in place or text cut out from the panel, the vinyl installation can have adverse effects due to surface tension. This would be describing your “Option 1”
    By that I mean, if you have a large window to flood coat in etch vinyl, but it has some text cut from the middle. that area with the text removed can create application issues where it can pucker and crease easily.
    so in some instances leaving the panel solid and applying directly over the cut vinyl text, is the better option. which would be “Option 1”

    * What size are the panels you are fitting over the logo?
    * Are you installing them alone?
    * Do you have concerns that you will get bubbles around the logo?
    * Will you fit these wet or dry?

    Sorry for my lack of feedback, just easier to respond if i can visualise your task.
