STEP 1: Your decal has a protective transfer tape front and a paper backing.

STEP 2: Decide on the best location for your decal. For best results make sure to clean your desired location. Using masking tape along the top edge of the transfer tape can help you with lining up your decal.

STEP 3: Peel the paper backing away from the decal slowly. If you are using masking tape to hold the decal in place, you will have to flip it over. Be sure that the decal stays attached to the transfer tape. If it is adhering unevenly to the tape, you can rub the decal with a credit card or similar item. You can also try a pushing and pulling motion on the decal.

STEP 4: Carefully position your decal on the desired surface. Once the decal sticks you may not be able to reposition it without tearing or damaging the vinyl.

STEP 5: Use a hard edge object like a plastic squeegee, library card or credit card to rub over the entire surface of the decal. For best results start in center and rub toward one direction, return to the center and rub in the other direction. Be careful to make sure the decal is fully adhered to the surface, and remove any air bubbles.

STEP 6: Remove the transfer tape very slowly, so that you can make sure to stop and re-press any letters that are coming up. It’s easier to pull in a downward angular fashion. Make sure that the entire decal is removed from the transfer tape. If an area is not adhering, rub over it with the credit card or a squeegee type tool. You can also try using a hair dryer on low heat to gently warm the transfer tape if the decal is being really stubborn.

STEP 7: The decal is now fully applied. Check the decal for any air bubbles. In many cases the air bubbles will vanish on their own after a few hours. If that is not the case, the bubbles can be removed by working them to the edge of the decal. If it’s too difficult to move the air bubble, make a small pinhole in the bubble. This will allow the air to leave, and you shouldn’t see the pin hole once the air has left. That’s it! Your decal should last you for a long time to come.

REMOVING YOUR DECAL: You can remove the decal by peeling gently from one corner. If there is resistance, try again from the opposite corner. If you find there is still resistance, aim a hair dryer at the decal on low for a few seconds. The decal should come off easily now. If there is any residue (there shouldn’t be, but you never know) use a very small amount of soapy water on a paper towel and clean the area. That’s it! Thanks again!
