Vinyl Sticker Application
v Step 1 - Clean the area thoroughly with soap and water. Do not use a glass cleaner because it will leave a residue behind that will prevent the sticker from adhering well.
v Step 2 - Rub a squeegee or credit card firmly across the sticker through the clear transfer tape to prepare it for application. This ensures the sticker will cling to the transfer tape and removes any air bubbles that may have formed.
v Step 3 - Peel the white paper backing off the sticker. If the sticker clings to the backing, slowly replace the paper backing and repeat Step 2.
v Step 4 - Slowly lower the sticker onto the surface and rub it in place firmly with a squeegee or credit card. For best results, wait 24 hours before moving to the next step.
v Step 5 - Slowly peel the clear transfer tape off at an angle. Be careful not to pull the sticker off the surface. If sticker pulls away from the surface repeat Step 4.
The adhesive on the vinyl is designed to cure more like a cement so it may have to be scraped off of glass, or if on a painted surface you can apply a little heat to warm the vinyl and then use an adhesive remover like Goo-Gone or Goof-Off to remove the adhesive. The only word of caution, if applying to the painted area of a car is that vinyl, like anything you cover paint with, has an SPF factor so it will block the sun's UV rays and while the paint around it fades over time, the area under the decal will actually be protected. If you remove the decal the paint will typically be darker and not match the rest of the paint in the surrounding area.
If decorating a wall, the paint may lift when removing the decal depending on the type of paint it is.
