• How to get best results from your decal during application

For proper adherence/bonding, all surfaces should be considered as dirty and should therefore be cleaned prior to any decal application. Household surface cleaners, such as Windex, are acceptable; however, it is  recommend to use a mixture of water and isopropyl alcohol in the ratio of 2:1. After thorough cleaning, wipe the surface dry with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth.
Surface temperature should not be below 70 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degree celsius) during application for optimum result. Use of heat gun to control the temperature is also recommended.

Appication of vinyl decal:

Spray the surface  with water or application fluid
Note: do not spray water or application fluid when using reflective vinyl. Reflective vinyl should be applied on a dry surface. Place the left side of the decal down on the surface,  with the application tape still intact, squeegee the decal to the surface by applying pressure with smooth even strokes. Start at the middle of the decal and work your way out to the left.
Note: Before you squeegee, make sure there are no wrinkles in the decal or application tape.

It is a good  to wait just a couple of minutes before you remove the application tape.
This allows the application fluid to begin drying and will prevent the decal from trying to come up. Once it is adhered to the surface, squeegee the entire decal a second time. Then carefully peel the tape off the entire decal.

After application, do not worry if there are air bubbles throughout the decal. Vinyl breathes hence, the air bubbles would disappear by itself within a few weeks. If you have any major, bubbles you can eliminate them by carefully heating the area with a hair dryer or heat gun, then puncturing them with a needle and applying pressure with your thumb. Note: You can do more damage than good by chasing the smaller bubbles.
