If you are installing a large decal, it is helpful to have a second person to help you
Using your level and painters tape, tape a horizontal piece of string to the wall where you plan to install your wall decal.
Lay the decal on a clean flat surface. Using the credit card, firmly rub over the decal from the center outwards from all directions.
Place the decal between the wall and the string. The string help you make sure your decal is applied level on your wall. Tape the top corners of the decal to the wall using painters tape and place a vertical piece of tape across the middle of the decal.
Remove the string and discard.
Remove the painters tape from the top left corner, and peel the backing paper off of the transfer tape. The decal should stuck to the transfer tape. When you reach the center of the decal, cut the backing paper off using scissors.
Using the credit card, firmly rub the decal from the center point outwards to apply the left side of the decal to the wall.
Remove the painters tape from the center and right corner. Peel the backing paper off of the transfer tape. Using the credit card, firmly rub the decal from the center point outwards to apply the right side of the decal to the wall.
Begin in a corner and slowly peel off the transfer tape at a 45 degree angle. Smooth the decal using the credit card to remove any air bubbles by rubbing from the center to the edges. All that should remain now it just the vinyl decal. Enjoy your decal!
Permanent Decal Installation
On a smooth surface
i.e. glass, metal, etc.
Our permanent decals can be applied to almost any clean smooth surface such as a car, truck, boat, trailer, motorcycle, glass (mirror, windows, windshield, etc.), door, cup, water bottle, computer, helmets, skateboard bottom, boat, ATV, and more.
Tips For Success:
Install decal on a smooth surface
Do not touch the sticky side of the vinyl
Apply decal to surfaces with temperatures between 50-90 degrees Fahrenheit
Allow installed decal to cure for 24 hours before getting wet
The decals will not adhere to a surface that has been waxed. Remove all wax and residue with a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol or denatured alcohol before application. After the decals have been applied, the surface can be waxed over.
Troubleshooting Decal Application
My Decal Won’t Peel Off the Paper Backing
Lay the decal face down on a hard flat surface and use a squeegee or the sharp edge of a credit card and press firmly across the surface of the decal. This will press the vinyl material onto the application tape so you can peel it away from the paper backing and apply your decal.
My Decal Won’t Stick to the Window or Surface
Make sure the surface is as clean as possible. Residue from car wash soap and wax, products like RainX and rainwater mixed with oil and gas residue from the road can all prevent your decal from sticking. We recommend cleaning the glass with rubbing alcohol or ammonia free window cleaner. Other surfaces can be cleaned with soapy water. Make sure the surface is completely clean & dry before you apply your decal.
Some Decal Pieces Keep Peeling Up When I Try to Remove the Transfer Tape
Use a squeegee or the shape edge of a credit card and press the decal firmly on the surface. It may help to leave the decal on the surface for several minutes before you try to remove the application tape. Peel the application tape away at an angle. If some pieces don’t adhere and start to come off with the transfer tape, push the application tape with the pieces back down on the surface and apply more pressure to the area, then continue removing the transfer tape.
There are Bubbles in my Decal
First, make sure you have removed the clear application tape on top of the decal. Only the vinyl pieces should be left on the surface. Small bubbles under the vinyl material usually dissipate in a couple of days. If you have large bubbles in the vinyl material, you can use a needle to puncture the vinyl so the air can escape as you press the material down.
