Applying Vinyl Self Storage Numbers using the “Wet Method”

self storage letters numbersApplying our vinyl self adhesive storage numbers using the wet method is very simple.  The wet method is used to apply letters and numbers that are not transfer taped.  For instruction on how to apply transfer taped letters and number, click on the link to the left.

To apply wet, simple mix about 16 ounces of water with a few drops of liquid soap like Dawn or Joy.  Keep the mixture very mild. (no more than 1/4 teaspoon)  Too much soap will impede adhesion.  Peel the number off of the carrier sheet and spray the sticky side with the mild soapy solution.  Avoid getting the paper wet.  Then spray the surface you wish to number, lay the number onto the surface, and gently press on.  Squeegee lightly at first and when the decal begins to dry, squeegee harder.  Make sure to get all the liquid out from behind the decal.  Once the number is on, dry, and pressed on, you are done.

Letter Size Visibility Distance Chart

One question we get a lot is, how big should my self storage numbers or letters be?  The answer depends on how far away the viewer will be, and how much room you have to work with.  The information below will help.

The larger a character such as a letter or number are, the further away they can be seen.  We offer characters from 2 inches tall, to 12 inches.  The chart below will assist you in determining the sizes you need based on the distance the viewer will most likely be.  Self storage door numbers generally need to be seen from about 50 – 100 feet away.  Keep in mind that with letters and numbers, you can go too small, but you can’t really go to large.  As long as there is room on the door or building for the number.  If you need letters smaller than 2″ or larger than 12″, just contact us at and we can price the letters for you. Or use our quote request form on the left of this page.
