Clean the surface area where the sticker is to be applied.
Use glass cleaner or rubbing alcohol. Application of these
stickers are best at temperatures between 55 - 85 degrees.
Position your sticker on the surface you intend it to be
applied to. Put a piece of tape, (masking tape), on either
upper corner. Use a measuring tool of some kind to square it up.
Apply masking tape the full distance across the top, half on
on the sticker, half on the surface.
Note: If a little nervous, here is where you will need the warm soapy
water. When you lift the sticker, backing and transfer tape,
spray a fine mist all over the area you are working on.
Lift the sticker, backing and transfer tape all together. Slowly
remove the wax paper backing while holding on to the sticker
and transfer tape. Be VERY careful not to let the sticker fall into
itself! - Keep spread out and taut. Also be sure the hinged area
does not come off the transfer tape or the surface.
Again, holding the sticker and transfer tape taut with one hand,
start from the top and middle with your squeegee, pressing firmly
work outward from top/middle to top/right then top/middle to
top/left. Then squeegee width down/middle to the right and then
to the left. Do not skip any area as you are working your way
down or you will get bubbles or even wrinkles that you may not
be able to get out.
Go back over the entire area even more firmly now, try to go the
same way you did originally.
Remove the hinge masking tape and squeegee upwards over
that area the masking tape was covering.
** Note: If you used the soapy water you can now make sure there
are no bubbles, wrinkles and you can even straighten it a bit. Be sure
the last thing you do before removing the tape if using the soapy water
is SQUEEGEE FROM THE MIDDLE OF ENTIRE STICKER OUT UNTIL ALL BUBBLES,
WRINKLES AND WATER ARE OUT.
Now remove the transfer tape, slowly starting from one corner pulling
away from the surface while keeping the transfer tape you are
pulling on as close to the surface area as you can. Doing this
minimizes the chances of pulling up the sticker with the transfer tape.
** Note: If you used the soapy water slowly dry with paper towels
and let set for 10 or 15 minutes until the water you sprayed is
With window cleaner, spray the entire area and gently clean. After several
days you should be able to wash with a cloth, soap and water - not too hard
and go through car washes, etc...
