WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU READ THESE APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS IN FULL BEFORE YOU APPLY YOUR VINYL STICKERS, SO YOU CAN FULLY UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS AND AVOID ANY POTENTIAL ISSUES.
Step 1: IMPORTANT!!! Clean the area where you will be applying the decal to avoid any dirt from being trapped underneath. This will eliminate any unsightly bumps in the finished product, and will ensure that the decal will last a long time. The cleaner, the better!
Handy hint: Try to apply the decal at room temperature or above. The warmer it is, the better it works,
a hairdryer can be used to warm up the area and the decal.
Step 2: Using a squeegee, flatten the decal on both sides by rubbing over it. If your decal was shipped rolled, lay it out flat and let it relax for an hour or so. The decal will be easier to handle if flat.
WET APPLICATION IS RECOMMENDED
We highly recommend this method, as it allows you to reposition your sticker until it is sitting in the perfect position. It’s also much easier to eliminate any air bubbles which may get trapped underneath your vinyl sticker.
Step 3: Mix some water with a few drops of dishwashing liquid. Use a spray bottle to apply a fine mist to the area where the decal is to be applied.
Step 4: Place the decal on the sprayed surface. The decal can then be gently moved and repositioned correctly, as your decal will slide on the thin film of solution trapped between the vinyl decal and the surface. When the decal is in the final location, use a squeegee to squeeze the water and detergent solution out from under the decal.
CAUTION! Be sure to squeegee as much of the water/detergent solution as possible from under the decal. Take your time. Although a squeegee is the recommended tool, the water can also be removed by using a soft cloth.
Step 6: If there are bubbles present under the decal that cannot be removed by working them to the edge of the decal with your fingers, a small pin or needle can be used to puncture the decal at the bubble, to remove the air. A small pin hole will not be seen after the air bubble has been worked out with the fingers. Applying heat from a hairdryer may also be helpful.
