How to apply vinyl decals

Step 1

Clean the surface you are going to be applying the sticker to thoroughly using soap and water or isopropyl alcohol. It is important that you do not apply the sticker after using a surface cleaner, as some may contain wax that will prevent the sticker from sticking.

Step 2

Peel off the transfer paper, along with the sticker, removing the backing paper and exposing the sticky back side of the sticker. Be careful not to allow the sticker to fold on its self.

Step 3

Place the sticker on to the surface you are applying it to, and if placed correctly, firmly rub over the clear transfer paper to allow the sticker to cling to the window. Sometimes it helps to heat up the sticker also using your window heaters.

Step 4

Slowly peel off the backing paper from the sticker at a 180 degree angle, folding the backing paper on to its self, and applying pressure whilst removing. For best results, leave the sticker a few minutes before doing this step, allowing the sticker more time to cling to the surface.

Step 5
