you need to determine what type of decal you have.
your decal have two layers, with the decal itself the first layer
and a paper layer that you remove to expose the adhesive on the
bottom? These do not have application tape.
is easy to pick out a decal with application tape; All of our decals
are die cut, so when you see a material extending past the artwork
decal's edge and it decrease the brightness of the decal, then that
material is application tape. These decals have three layers with
application tape which is the third layer covering the decal. This
tape should be removed after the decal sets up on the object you are
Clean the area that you want to place the decal. (Wet or dry
Setup - You can apply the decals wet or dry. The wet application
gives you the advantage to adjust the decal a little after it is
applied, but the disadvantage is that it take more time to set up
before you can remove any application tape. To do Wet Application,
you add two drops of dish soap to a quart water sprayer and VERY
lightly mist the area you cleaned prior to applying the decal then do
the remaining steps. The surface should look like dew that you will
find on your car in the morning.
Step 1 - Peal the bottom paper layer from the decal exposing the
Step 2 - Carefully apply the decal. Most hold the decal in a 'U'
shape, applying the middle of the decal first then laying out one
side at a time. You can also apply it from the top of the decal down,
bottom up or side to side. Whatever makes you comfortable. When using
the wet application, you may be able to adjust you decal a little at
this time. With dry application, it will stay where you place it.
Step 3 - Rub out any bubbles with a credit card or flat plastic
object. We laminate all of our decals, so I don't expect many
bubbles, but there may be a few.
Step 4 - IMPORTANT; This is the time, if you have application
tape on the decal to consider removing it after the decal
sets. Dry application sets in about five minutes, wet
application sets in about thirty hour or so.
the Application Tape if you Decal Has It
Step 5 - To remove the application tape, grasp a corner and slowly
pull it across the center of the decal to the other side. If, by
chance, the decal itself begins to lift when you begin removing the
application tape, lay the application tape back down again over it an
the decal then rub with a credit card again and let it rest a few
more minutes. As you try again, try holding the edge of the decal
with your finger as it appears from under the tape.
the application tape is removed you will have a wonderful sticker
rated for a long life. Let it set up for a few hours and then you can
clean with soap and water.
is the easy part. Each decal is covered with a high quality UV
