    Ok, so now we all know I'm new! yay!
    I've managed to talk the performance shop owner into brining the vinyl cutter into his venu.
    Now what I need is a great 'how to' sort of book to help me go about learning key elements in installing vinyl on vehicles. My biggest concern is installing a vinyl decal across a windshield. Accounting for the curve etc.
    SO, if anybody could suggest a good book ... or tell me where I should be looking for one that would be great!

    Thanks so much!

    Do a search on this site for windshield. It will show some of the info you are looking for.

    Most any of the major sign supply companies offer all sorts of books on sign-related topics. The web sites are usually aimed at selling equipment & supplies, but if you get a printed catalog, there is usually at least two pages of books. Google "sign supply" or similar search words and all the major companies will be in the list somewhere.

    Both Sign Builder Illustrated as well as Sign Business offer books for under $50. Also subscribe to those magazines. One of them is free, the other is not but still cheap.
