What is the difference between die-cut lettering and printed lettering?
Die-Cut Lettering: Die-cut vinyl lettering are big sheets of vinyl that are cut using a sophisticated cutting machine that leaves a professional finish. Think of law enforcement vehicles, commercial airlines, fire trucks, they all use die-cut lettering. The shelf life of die cut vinyl is usually 8-12 years.
Printed Lettering: Printed lettering is a white sheet of vinyl that is injected with ink, think of your run of the mill sticker. Whenever ink is injected into anything, the ink will fade very quickly. The shelf life is usually 1-3 years and printed lettering does not withstand rain, heat or other weather elements.
