INSTALLING YOUR VINYL DECALS

Applying your vinyl graphics is simple if you follow some basic guidelines:

  • Patience, good preparation, a steady hand, and good weather will produce the best results
  • The VINYL DECAL comes in one piece and is sandwiched between a clear layer of protective tape and a layer of waxy backing paper
  • Both the backing paper and the clear protective tape are removed during the installation process
  • The adhesive side of the decal is sticking to the backing paper and peels off easily
  • HOWEVER, the adhesive on the vinyl decal is EXTREMELY sticky, so be very careful when you peel it off

WARNING: The vinyl will stretch if you are too rough with it and that's NOT a good thing.

Installation Site Conditions:

  • Apply decals to any hard, smooth, non-porous surfaces (glass, metal, etc.) or properly prepared wood surfaces (sanded, painted/clear-coated and completely dried)
  • Always install the graphics when the temperature is above 50 degrees F
  • Don't try to install in windy conditions
  • Make sure the surface where you are going to install your decals is absolutely clean and spotless

Application:

  • Peel off backing layer
  • Starting at any one side (top, bottom, left, right), place edge of decal where you want it
  • Slowly lay rest of decal down on surface, press down gently making good contact with surface
  • Using "squeegee" (2 credit cards back to back will work)
  • Gently smooth out any air bubbles working from the center to outside edges
  • Finish by peeling the clear protective tape very slowly back onto itself along the plane of the surface. Don't just pull straight away from the surface. The slow motion will allow the vinyl to stay on the surface while removing the tape. You don't want to pull the vinyl off the surface. Pop any bubbles with a pin and press out the air.
