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
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.
DONíT 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.
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 decal assembly from the
surface, leaving the pencil marks behind. Carefully peel the
masking tape from the application tape.
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
the application tape:
SLOWLY and CAREFULLY remove the application tape from the
applied decal. Voila!
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.
