VINYL DECAL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Each Decal consists of 3 parts:
Please read this section carefully, especially if you are new to Rub On Vinyl Decal Installations.
Transfer sheet is the Mask that we apply to your Decal that makes multiple letters
stay together. It is necessary for us to apply this Mask to make Decals ready for
install. This transfer sheet is the Clear Adhesive applied over the Decal.
This is the actual adhesive Decal that you have purchased.
It is sandwiched between the Application Tape and the Wax Backing.
The Decal is what ends up installed to the surface.
The backing is the heavy Wax Paper that is applied to the “Sticky” side of the decal.
This backing keeps the Decal from sticking to anything prior to install.
First, apply vinyl stickers only to clean, smooth surfaces. The cleaner the surface, the better your sticker
will adhere. Stickers may be removed, but doing so will destroy the decal. Application to surfaces colder
than 40F is not recommended, unless the surface can be heated slightly with a hair dryer before application.
Before application, place the sticker on a flat surface and remove the white
backing sheet, leaving the sticker attached to the clear "transfer" sheet.
Small stickers (less than 5 inches) can be apply directly by peeling off the backing paper from the
back of the sticker, affix the sticker, apply slight pressure to smooth and remove the transfer sheet.
Use caution with this "dry method" as, once the sticker makes contact with the surface, it is stuck and you can’t reposition it.
With larger stickers, we recommend using the "wet method" of application. Mix 1 cup of cold tap water
with one drop of dish washing liquid (Dawn, Ivory, etc.). We suggest pouring this mixture into a clean spray bottle,
though a lint-free rag or sponge ca be used instead. Apply the water mixture liberally to the surface to which the sticker
is being applied. This wet method permits you to work from the centre to the outside, smoothing out the sticker and
eliminating wrinkles or air bubbles. A credit card works well as a "squeegee" for this purpose.
Once the sticker is in place, let it dry for about 15 minutes and then spray the backing paper with
the above water mixture and carefully peel off the backing paper. If an edge of the sticker lifts from the surface,
use the credit card to smooth it back down and wait a couple more minutes for the further drying.
Do not wash your car for at least several days after applying the sticker,
which will permit all of the application fluid to evaporate completely.
Vinyl won't stick to the surface
Is the surface properly clean? Is it dust-free, free from grease, oil or waxy residues? Is it too warm or too cold? Is it wet?
Is it a suitable surface (for example, bare untreated wood or concrete are not suitable surfaces)?
If you are sure that the conditions are good for vinyl application but it still won't stick, ask your supplier for further advice.
Vinyl won't follow curved vehicle bodywork properly
If you are attempting to apply vinyl to a vehicle which may contain uneven surfaces, you may experience problems if you're using the wrong type of vinyl.
There are two main types of vinyl, "cast" and "calendered". For applications which require the vinyl to conform to uneven surfaces,
such as bodywork curves or panel trenches, cast vinyl should be used. Calendered vinyl is really only ideal for flat application.
Despite my best efforts I get loads of air bubbles
You generally can't squeegee the bubbles out once the vinyl is stuck down.
However it is possible to pin-prick the offending bubbles and carefully push the air out of the pin hole.
The vinyl won't stick to the application paper - it stays on the backing sheet
Unfortunately this is a common problem. If you try to remove the backing sheet, but the graphics stay firmly on the backing sheet instead of sticking
to the application paper, then you should follow a couple of procedures. Firstly, lay the graphics flat and firmly squeegee the graphics to try ensure the
application paper has a good adhesive grip on the vinyl. Then you should slowly peel the backing paper off at a 180º angle, using your other hand to apply
pressure against the vinyl to help it onto the application paper. While this may slow the job down, it will eventually work.
The vinyl has stuck hard to the backing sheet and rips when I try to remove it
This may happen if the backing sheet becomes wet. Make sure you keep the backing sheet
dry during the application. It is particularly important to ensure the surface is dry after cleaning.
I've heard it is possible to apply vinyl wet
This is true, larger vinyls can be applied wet using a mild detergent mixed with water. The water should be sprayed to the surface
and to the rear (glue side) of the vinyl and then once the vinyl is in position, the water can be squeegeed out through the edges.
This method is generally only for very large graphics and only on flat surfaces and is usually best left to experienced vinyl fitters.
If you are trying to apply vinyl to a curved or uneven surface (for example a car bonnet) then do not wet apply - it will be a disaster!
