Default Vinyl Stencil Wood Signs

Okay so I have been using vinyl to make cute wood signs for over a year. This summer I have been having horrible trouble with it. Every time I use a vinyl stencil and peel it up (after using modpodge to seal it) my lettering rips and some of it pulls up. It is extremely frustrating.

Any advice to fix this problem.

Maybe before you peel it up, run the tip of a knife around the edges to cut through the modpodge.

Try using a releasing agent on the edges of the transfer that come into contact with the modpodge.

I agree about trying a release agent. It seems like a lot of people have this issue with stencils. I never tried anything like this myself but it should work.
