Step 1 : Surface preperation

In order to make your decal stick you need to have a clean, grease free, dry surface.  So take the time to clean the surface area properly.  If sticking to a wall that is freshly painted make sure you wait at least 4-6 weeks to allow the paint to fully cure.

Step 2 : The dummy run

Before you apply your sticker it is best to position the decal where it will be stuck to make sure it will fit and that it is correctly aligned.  When happy use masking tape to hold the sticker in place

Step 5 : The peel

Once you have done this, peel off the top application layer making sure the decal comes away with it.  For larger complex decals do this slowly & re-press where needed all the way to the hinge and whilst keeping the decal under tension cut off the backing paper.
