Weeding Tips for Small Lettering and Decals

Although weeding small lettering or graphics is a tricky job, there are some tips that can help to improve your efficiency. Let’s check if you already know the below methods and welcome to share your good ideas with us!

1. Check on your cutting machine. Confirm that your blade is in good condition. Using a dull blade will lead to poorly cut decals and make the weeding process very difficult.

2. Weed directly after cutting, waiting too long to weed after cutting will allow the adhesive to flow back, causing the design to lift with the excess vinyl.

3. Proper tools, having the right tools will make your weeding job easier.

4. Start weeding from the upper to the lower. This is to avoid your arm touching the edge of the vinyl graphics after weeding, which may lead to peeling or lifting.
