Note for small decals or glass use dry application.
For Dry Application Follow Steps 1-5
Clean surface area with window cleaner a couple of times where decal
is to be applied. If applying to paint make sure there is no wax on that area,
you can use a wax remover solvent that is safe for paint. Apply when temperature
is above 55 degrees.
Position decal where you want it, apply a small piece of masking tape
on the top corners to hold sticker in position. Now stick a piece of masking
tape on either side of the decal making sure half the tape is on the decal
top clear transfer tape and half is on the surface, cut tape long enough
so it overlaps the ends of the decal.
Flip decal over so that the back is facing out. Use a long piece of
tape to hold decal in place while you do this. Slowly peel back wax paper
away from sticker (If decal is sticking to the wax paper lay the decal flat and
rub that area down and try again). If this is a small decal peel all the wax
backing paper completely off, if this is a large decal peel wax backing off half
Flip decal back over (facing towards the surface to be applied to).
Hold one end of the decal taut, be careful not to let decal touch itself or the
surface. Now with your other hand (start where the masking tape holds the decal
to the surface) rub decal up or down away from masking tape, If vertical rub
from masking tape side away from the tape, make sure you overlap with every up
or down, side to side rub. This is to ensure you get no bubbles.
There is a top clear transfer tape that needs to be removed,
before you do this rub decal down again with fingers, a squeegee or a credit
card to ensure adhesion. Remove top transfer tape, pull tape at 45 degree angle
away from the surface slowly (don't just pull outward, keep close to the
surface.) If decal lifts from the surface stick it back down and rub that area
For wet application (good for large decals) peel wax paper backing all
the way off. In a spray bottle put 1 or 2 drops of dish soap, shake well. Spray
the application surface. Lay decal and surface, use a squeegee or credit card to
squeegee out water trapped underneath the decal, start from the middle and work
your way out while holding the decal in place. Decal will have to sit for about
5-15 minutes, rub decal again, start from the inside outward and let sit for an
additional 5-15 minutes. Repeat until decal sticks to the surface. Then
remove top clear transfer tape.
WARNING: If there are any air bubbles in the decal DO NOT use a needle or
razor blade to poke holes in the air bubbles. Most air bubbles will flatten to
the surface in a few days. Do not use a squeegee or credit card directly on the
decal surface, this will scratch the decal.
