Make a mirror/glass seating plan table plan with our vinyl decals. Easy.

With our peel n’ stick vinyl decals, you can adopt the trend for using mirrors and glass and DIY a simple, elegant and clean seating chart table plan. If you have already purchased out vinyl decals, this post will help you apply them easy and with great quality. Watch the video and FOLLOW ALL 10 STEPS to make your mirror table plan successfully.

Step 1 – Unpack and lay out

Unpack your vinyl sheets. Print the digital proof which we have signed off and use as a guideline to it all lay out. It is best to do it first on the mirror itself.

Step 2 – Prepare the tools

You MUST use a squeegee. It is important to press the letters really well with a hard flat rubber surface. This will make all the difference in removing the vinyl from the transfer tape and applying on the mirror with ease. The other two tools which will be good to have are a weeding tweezer (or just any regular pointy tweezer) and a cloth for glass. 

Step-2-tools-you-need

Step 3 – Press really reeeeally well!

Press the vinyl sheets really well! Depending on your individual order, you might get a few tables one one sheet on each table on a separate sheet. First, press the back of the vinyl sheet for approximately 30-40 seconds FOR EACH TABLE and then the front where the transfer tape is for further 30-40 seconds. Remember to press all sides evenly and hard.

If your design is more complexed and is consist of more than 10 tables, you might find it easier to temporarily keep the vinyl sheets on the mirror BEFORE the transfer tape is removed. You can use small strips of sellotape to keep the vinyls in place. Then, you can execute Step No 3 on the mirror itself.

Step 4 – Remove the transfer tape

Even though you’ve press the vinyls well with the squeegee, you might get a few letters stuck on the sheet. If that happens, roll the transfer tape slightly just to cover that letter and press until the letter doesn’t detach from the sheet. Best results are achieved if you keep a 45 degree angle between the vinyl sheet and the transfer tape (unlike me on that picture).

Step 5 – Weed the vinyl

You might get a few bits of paper stuck to the sticky side of the vinyl like on the below picture. This happens if the blade cuts slightly deeper than the rest of the vinyl media. It is rear, but you may need to remove a few of the paper bits with a pointy tweezer.

Step 6 – Stick on the mirror

If you haven’t already secured the vinyl sheets on the mirror with tape (to know its exact position), now its time to get really precise with placing the vinyl lettering and transfer tape on the mirror. Keep a steady hand. Hold the transfer tape in the top corners and place gently on the mirror.

Step 7 – Press and press and press with the squeegee

The transfer tape is on the mirror. Well done. You can relax for a minute. This is your most important, yet most relaxing step. Press the vinyl lettering through the transfer tape with a squeegee A LOT. Before I made the video where I am pressing the two tables for approximately 40 seconds, I did another minute off camera. You really have to take your time with this and almost press every letter individually, especially the letter “i”, because of the dot.

 

Step 8 – Remove the transfer tape at 45 degree angle

If you have done Step 7 correctly as described above, removing the transfer tape should be a very satisfying and pleasurable experience. Remove the transfer tape at approximately 45 degree angle and only the vinyl lettering will stay on the mirror.

You may get a few letters that stay stuck on the transfer tape, same as when you were removing them from the vinyl sheet in Step No 4. Similarly, you can roll the transfer tape back on the mirror, press it with your squeegee and peel off.

Step 9 – The “Just in case” sheet

Every customer will receive a “Just in case” sheet with vinyl letters and dots of the letter ‘i’ the same font size. In the unlikely event of a few letters not being able to stick on the mirror, you can get them directly from the “Just in case” sheet with pointy tweezers and place them on the mirror separately.

Step 10 – Clean

To finish the table plan, use a dry clean glass cloth. Don’t worry to go over the letters with the cloth. They will not come off, so even if there is finger marks between the lines and the names, you can wipe and polish off.

Can’t thank Nelly at love story enough. Needed stickers for wedding favours very last minute as the supplier I was planning to use stopped doing them. Nelly was actually fully booked just about to down tools for annual leave so didn’t want to commit to my order incase it wasn’t here on time. However when I explained I was really struggling to find anyone else who could do these Nelly so very kindly accepted the order and printed that day for me. Communication via email was so easy.

Thank you so much again for your kindness in doing this xxx

We wanted a unique table plan for our wedding and found an amazing rustic mirror that fitted our venue perfectly. We contacted LoveStorey to get the names created and Nelly was so friendly and helpful it made the whole process easy and hassle free. She kept us updated of the progress and created a fantastic design. The vinyl’s arrived within days and the step by step guide made the application to the mirror super easy. I would definitely recommend LoveStorey as we were over the moon with the final result and had so many fantastic comments on our wedding day. The mirror is now displayed in our home to remember our special day forever.

I contacted Nelly quite close to the wedding and she was amazing at creating and perfecting the design I wanted for our table plan mirror! It was perfect on the day and something we can treasure. We managed to apply the decals ourselves with no trouble. I would highly recommend. �

I cannot recommend Love Storey enough. I contacted them with regards their wedding invitations. We were very interested in the shine copper wedding invitations but wanted something that reflects our colour scheme, and they created a completely bespoke invitation for us which are truly stunning. The invitations are made to an exceptionally high standard, exactly the way we wanted them. We were able to benefit from their obvious extensive experience with regards to advising what to include and not include. Now all we have left to do is send our invitations out and I cannot wait to send them to our friends and family. If you want stunning wedding invitations that are made to a high standard and are more than reasonably priced, I would absolutely recommend using Love Storey.

It was easy to stick on to the mirror, although time consuming! All worth it though.

I was a bit nervous about applying the transfers to the mirror but I followed the instructions and it was all straightforward - think the key is not to rush it!

Looks fab and I'm really looking forward to displaying this at my wedding, may well even put it on a wall somewhere at home after as a keepsake. 10/10 from me.

Nelly at Love Storey Weddings provided us with the vinyl for our mirror table plan for our wedding. I could not recommend Nelly enough. The vinyls came just as we wanted them and our table plan looked gorgeous on our day! But the best reason to choose Nelly is her communication with you, which if you are a stressed out bride will be much appreciated! Less than a week before my wedding the smallest (ironically) table vinyl went wrong when we were doing my table plan. I emailed Nelly to see if there was any way i could get another table vinyl in time for my wedding and she replied quickly and redid the vinyl and posted it out to me as soon as she could which i was so grateful for! Thank you Nelly �
