If you've never installed car decals or vinyl graphics before, I strongly recommend professional installation. The process isn't very difficult but if you mess it up, bear in mind we don't accept returns or refunds once the graphics have been used.
Let's get to it. There are also a couple of videos at the bottom which you may find useful.
Storage before application
Store in a cool, dry place. Storage should ideally not be warmer than 86F/30C.
For best results avoid installing at extremely hot or cold temperatures, and preferably do it inside a garage or other enclosed space.
- squeegee or credit card
- masking tape or painters tape
- rubbing alcohol or soap and water
- microfibre towel or paper towels
- craft knife or similar
Clean the area thoroughly using rubbing alcohol or soap and water. Once clean make sure the surface is completely dry. A clean surface is really important for proper adhesion. Do not use Windex or similar products because they leave a residue behind that can prevent the vinyl adhesive from adhering well.
2. Prepare the graphic
Prepare the graphic for application by firmly rubbing a squeegee or credit card across the clear transfer tape. This removes any air bubbles that may have formed and makes the adhesive cling to the transfer tape. Position the graphic where you'd like it on the vehicle, and hold it in place using masking or painter's tape.
3. Peel the backing
Once you have it in position, start to peel one part of the white paper backing off the graphic. If the graphic clings to the backing, slowly replace the paper backing and repeat Step 2.
4. Apply the graphic
Taking your time, lower the graphic onto the surface and rub it in place firmly with a squeegee or credit card. For best results, wait a little while before moving to the next step.
5. Peel off the transfer tape
Slowly peel the clear transfer tape off. It helps if you do it at an angle and in small parts. Be careful not to pull the graphic off the surface. If the graphic pulls away from the surface repeat Step 4.
There are tons of videos on Youtube that will help you install your graphics. Here are a couple I found which are particularly helpful. We'll be making our own videos soon, but in the meantime these should do the job.
