    I've never done this! Does vinyl stick to vinyl siding? I don't see why not?

    They would like the building address and the words Community Center on the vinyl. Please advise...thank you!

    Yes, you can do it, just make sure it's 110% clean.

    However, a nicer approach would be to put a panel of ACM or whatever up there and give it some 'oomph'. This would make it look like it was on purpose, instead of an afterthought.​

    I totally agree, I'm going to price that out and the vinyl lettering on the same estimate! Thanks for the quick response!

    To get your point across, you can explain to them, you can put a pinstripe on it, a border or even a different color background. You can do so much more with a flat canvas vs. that stepping of the siding.

    By the way, vinyl on vinyl..... there's no better adhesion than that.​

    The vinyl will stick but it will look so cheap and tacky.

    I would tend to price the two about the same.
    Give me a difficult/time consuming fab with a quick install any day, as opposed to an easy/quick fab with a stupid long hot install!

    I priced them about the same LOL I'm trying to steer her towards the sign...cheap and tacky is exactly what I was thinking, especially for a city building!
