Application Materials & Tools
Products that make application easy and two Handy shop tools.

You can choose to apply vinyl in one of two ways; "Dry or Wet". Applying vinyl graphics "Dry" does not allow for any mistakes. Once the vinyl touches the surface, there is no removal without damage.  
However, applying vinyl graphics with Application Fluid allows you the opportunity to reposition vinyl as needed for up to several minutes. For obvious reasons, this method is recommended for both beginners and experts.

I have also included a couple of Tools that I use in my operation. Both are used for preparing my sign blanks, but are a great addition to any home hobby shop or business. The hole punch and the Corner Rounder are useful for many projects. Simple and inexpensive. See below.
