Applying your decals
Choose where your decals will be applied;:
Decals will stick to any smooth, clean surface including gloss paint, latex paint, glass, plastic and metal.
The surface should be free from any dirt or debris. We recommend using any mild detergent on surfaces such as automotive paint, glass or plastic. Glass cleaners or ammonia based cleansers are not recommended. The surface must be completely dried off before application.
The surface must also be the right temperature. The surface must be above 60 degrees F, and ideally it should be 70F or just above. Make sure there is no wind it will cause a problem if your decal is blown around as you are applying it. Also, it cannot be raining and the decal must not get wet prior to install.
DON�T PEEL ANYTHING YET!
Choose a location for your decal and tape it in place with masking tape. This will help you choose the absolute best location and help you obtain proper alignment. Apply the masking tape to an edge or two as needed. You can make adjustments by carefully lifting the masking tape and repositioning the decal to your liking.
Lining it up:
Use a water soluble pencil to mark the application tape with a line. Make sure your line extends off of the application tape and onto the surface you are installing the decal on. At least two lines are needed.
Remove the masking tape:
Remove the decal assembly from the surface, leaving the pencil marks behind. Carefully peel the masking tape from the application tape.
Applying the decal:
Four hands are better than two! Get someone to help you for this process. Peel the backing from the decal leaving the decal affixed to the application tape. Carefully apply your decal by matching up the markings on the application tape and the surface the decal is being applied to. Use a squeegee, if available to smooth the decal in place. Work from the center outward with slow even strokes.
Removing the application tape:
SLOWLY and CAREFULLY remove the application tape from the applied decal. Voila!
Even the pros get bubbles:You will probably have some bubbles in your decal after installation. Small bubbles will go away as the decal sets. It will flatten out over time as the proper temperature helps it cure. To remove the bubbles faster, poke them with a pin to let the air out. Smoothing with your hand afterwards, plastic squeegees can scratch the decal. This works better in the proper temperature.
