1. Clean your destination surface.
2. With your decal as-is (still taped up), lay
your decal (backing-side down,
application-tape-side up) and align as you
like it. It should be adhesive side down,
looking like it will look
after applied. Once you get it lined up...
3. Place a strip of masking-tape (vertically)
down the center of the image to hold in
place, over-lapping the edge onto the
destination surface. Make sure it won't
move. Once fixed...
4. Pull one side of the image back flat
against itself, folding over the
masking-tape center-line that you placed
to hold it down. Don't crease it, just fold it.
5. Using a sharp angle, start in a corner
and peel away the image's backing until
you get to the masking-tape-center-line
you laid to hold it in place. Keeping the
vinyl (on the application-tape) pinned back
with your finger, cut away the removed
backing along the center-placement-tape
line. Careful not to scratch surface or cut
6. Using any squeegee like item (a credit
card works well), begin to lay your graphic
down onto your prepared surface from the
masking-take center line outward. DO NOT
LAY DOWN ALL AT ONCE! Hold the image
at an angle above the destination-surface,
and slowly, starting at the
center-placement-tape-line, press down
the image from the center out using the
squeegee. Squeegee from the
center-tape-line outward as you lay it
down, pushing out bubbles as you go.
7. Once one side is laid down, remove the
center-tape-line, then remove the other half
of the vinyl backing the same way as
before, and repeat the process for the
8. Squeegee the entire image a few times,
from the center outward, each time with
greater pressure, making sure that you get
all the air bubbles out.
9. Begin peeling the shipping tape off
using a sharp angle. If the image comes
off the surface (sticking to the shipping
tape), simply lay back down and squeegee
hard a few times, then try again to peel
back the tape - remember, a sharp angle
works best when separating vinyl from
either the backing or the tape.
