Since we recently introduced decals to our store, we figured it would be a good idea to show you how to put it on your vehicle!
We've broken it down into the following six simple steps.
Step 01: Clean the Surface
Start by cleaning the surface where the decal will be applied. You can use glass cleaner or plain soap and water.
Dry the surface thoroughly with a cloth or paper towel that does not leave anything behind. Shop towels work good, as to microfiber cloths.
Regular paper towels tend to leave small white fuzz balls on the glass. If you apply the decal on top of any debris, there will be bumps under it where the debris is stuck.
Step 02: Peel the blue backing off
Begin at the corner and carefully start peeling the blue backing away from the transfer paper. Only peel the corner away at first.
Once you have the corner peeled away, lay the decal on a flat surface and roll the rest of the blue backing off by pulling straight back from one side to the other.
Do not pull the backing up and away from the transfer paper.
Step 03: Attach a corner to the surface
Line your decal up where it is to be placed on the vehicle. Attach just the corner at first to ensure you have it in the right spot.
Step 04: Slowly and smoothly rub the decal on
Once you feel comfortable with the placement, rub the short end of the decal onto the surface. Then begin slowly rubbing the decal onto the surface from one side to the other. Much in the same way that you removed the blue backing.
One you have the entire decal applied, use your fingers to firmly press the decal onto the surface and attempt to push out any air bubbles.
Step 05: Use a card to remove any air bubbles
Use a credit card, licence, or something similar to scrape any remaining air bubble toward the edge and out of the paper. Do this until you feel that as much of the decal is bonded with the surface as possible.
Step 06: Slowly peel the transfer paper off
Pick a corner and begin peeling the transfer paper off of the surface.
Similar to removing the blue backing, keep the transfer paper low, and and pull it off from one side to the other.
If you've done all of these steps correctly, you will have an awesome new decal on your vehicle!
