General Application Procedures - for larger graphics: 

You can choose to apply vinyl dry or wet.  Applying vinyl graphics dry does not allow for any mistakes.  Once the vinyl touches the surface, there is no removal without damage. 

However, applying vinyl graphics with a spray (very small amount, tiny drop of washing up liquid in large bottle) allows you the opportunity to remove and reposition vinyl as needed for up to several minutes.   To apply using the spray, spray the surface thoroughly.  Then lay the vinyl on a flat surface and spray the adhesive side as you remove the backing.  An extra set of hands is a good idea.  Then simply apply the vinyl to the surface.

Do not excessively stretch vinyl during the application.  Because vinyl is a pressure-sensitive a squeegee (credit card/store card) should be used to remove the excess fluid and or air bubbles from behind the vinyl.  You should always start the squeegee from the middle and work outwards.  Allow the vinyl to set for 5 to 15 minutes.
