Welcome the Winter Weather with TransferRite® Clear Application Tapes
We’re really missing the snow here at our NJ headquarters through this mild season, but we know other parts of the country have been living in a winter wonderland! We took a field trip to Hammer & Stain in Haddon Township, NJ to get crafty. We thought, wishful thinking for winter weather! And what better way to get crafty than with our favorite application tape?
TransferRite’s line of application tapes offer solutions for all your projects. Whatever your application, you’ll find the right fit in our family of tapes. We’re going to make some signage using TransferRite 582U which is our workhorse, medium tack, paper application tape. We used this application tape to help apply the stencil for our outdoor winter welcome sign to display by your front door!
Our friend Kelly, who owns Hammer & Stain Haddon Township helped us bring to life our welcome sign idea! Hammer & Stain has shops across the country. They are fully equipped franchised stores with DIY workshops that host instructional classes and parties. Interested in taking a class and making a craft? Check out their website here.
Follow the steps below to create the Winter Welcome sign with TransferRite application tape!
Step 1: First we make our desired design for the sign and turn it into a stencil with ORAMASK 813 stencil film. To lift the vinyl stencil from its liner and apply it to the surface of our sign, application tape is needed. Using a medium tack transfer tape, like TransferRite 582U, you are then able to apply the stencil to your project’s surface.
Step 2: Squeegee over the entire surface of your project, and then slowly peel back the tape to reveal a ready-to-go stencil. It is at this time you are able to apply your paint.
Step 3: Once you have applied a few coats of your chosen paint colors to the sign, you must allow time for it to dry. Pro tip: Using a hair dryer accelerates the drying process.
Step 4: After your paint has dried, you are then able to peel off the stencil to reveal your perfectly painted sign. How satisfying!
The TransferRite 582U is an all-purpose workhorse for medium sized vinyl graphics. Because of its versatility, 582U saves you the hassle of purchasing multiple types of transfer tapes.
We offer a few other types of application tapes great for crafting. TransferRite 592U’s high tack adhesive works well picking up smaller details. TransferRite 1310 and 1310 Grid offer great clear solutions for perfect alignment. TransferRite 1320 is your clear choice for those smaller decals with fine detail.
