|Plastic Applicator Squeegee or Credit Card
||Warm Water or Other Common Household Cleaning Item
Clean the Surface
The first order of business before you apply your decal is to make sure the surface is clean and dry. Any dirt, debris, or moisture can weaken the adhesion. Use warm water and soap, rubbing alcohol, or other common household items for a good clean. Be sure to wipe away any left-over cleaning product or residue with a dry cloth before moving on to the next step.
Tape & Measure
Before you peel away the backing, tape your decal down on the surface where you intend to apply it. Measure and adjust to make sure it is centered and straight.
Remove the Transfer Film from the Backing
Run a long piece of tape across the top of the decal to form a hinge. Slowly peel away the transfer film from the white backing.
With smaller decals, you can peel away the entire backing. For larger decals, it may be best to peel away the first portion and apply the decal to the surface as you peel away the rest of the backing.
Apply the Decal to the Surface
While holding the bottom end of the decal away from the surface. At the top of the decal, apply pressure with a plastic applicator squeegee or credit card. Start from the center of the decal and, with a scraping-like motion, work your way outward left to right, working your way down the decal.
Remove the Transfer Film
Once you've placed the decal, slowly remove the transfer film and press down any loose pieces and work out any air bubbles
Now you can remove the transfer film and enjoy your freshly placed decal.
