Application as Easy as 1, 2, 3!


Step 1 - Clean surface and remove paper backing

Clean surface thoroughly. Carefully remove paper backing, leaving the  vinyl on the transfer tape. Place decals on intended surface.


Step 2 - Use a plastic squeegee to apply the decal

Using a plastic squeegee or credit card, start in the center of design and firmly apply design to surface using overlapping strokes.


Step 3 - Remove Transfer Tape

Carefully begin to remove transfer tape to expose product. If bubbles occur, simply prick the bubble with a needle and smooth.

Note: Best results when applied between 60o – 80o F. Do not apply in direct sunlight. Wait a few days for adhesive to fully cure before washing.
