Helmet Lettering FAQ

  • What's the best vinyl for helmets?

    The Premium 3M Vinyl is our thinnest and best vinyl and conforms much better to the curve of the helmets.

  • How do I size lettering for helmets?

    Many times it's best to enter the total width (overall length) that you'd like the lettering to be. Remember that the Total Width and Total Height fields represent the overall total dimensions from the highest to the lowest point and leftmost to rightmost points. The Capital Letter Height represents the average size of the capital letters A-Z. Many fonts cannot be made in less than 1/2" or 3/4" tall letters. Some artistic and script type fonts may need a Capital Letter Height of an inch or more. If you add a solid color background on the purchase tab any of the lettering styles can be made in any size.

  • Helmet lettering installation tip:

    Many times when installing on a helmet it's best to remove the backing liner then holding the decal tightly from both ends place the lettering carefully starting at the center and firmly apply both ends at the same time. Go back over the lettering with a credit card or small squeegee and press the lettering from the center towards the edges.

  • What if I have any problems with the lettering?

    If you have any problems installing your vinyl, I'll send you a free replacement. Please contact us and we'll be glad to help in any way we can.

Custom Vinyl Hardhat Decal

“I use DIYlettering for everything and also list your website address on out Facebook and vehicle”

Scott Krusty Logsdon, Paramedic, Security Supervisor, Drummer, Instructor

  • Vinyl Lettering Use: Lately I've been ordering from you like crazy. Names for construction helmets, stickers for windows, amateur radio station information, just to name a few. A few months ago we were lettering medical boxes at the firehouse and my band was labeling cases. I use your company for everything I want to have that special professional touch. I could use a labeler but professional lettering looks so much better and if we mess it up applying it, you replace it for free. With the 3M reflective lettering all our people on the construction site have that extra level of protection like the picture included.

Custom Vinyl Helmet Decals
			Custom Vinyl Helmet Decals

“This was my first time ever using an online vinyl cutting service of any kind. My order was simple, but I got exactly what I asked for quickly and with no issues whatsoever. I've used many vinyl shops over the years and there is a reason I went online for this instead of using a local establishment. The one thing I was unsure about was the vinyl. I was looking for a very specific color of reflective that I have used on my helmets in the past and I didn't know how well the online color options would translate. I knew I'd get something that would work but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the vinyl I have used previously was the vinyl I got.”
