HOW TO INSTALL


 

 

 

Step 1: Gather some tools and clean the surface


step 1step 1step 1step 1For a better installation we recommend you to use a pair of scissors, a tape measure, painter's tape and a pencil. In addition to that an applicator tool is needed. You can use a credit card as an applicator
••• Make sure your installation surface is clean and dry. It is important for the decal to be installed on a clean and smooth surface.


Step 2: Get the sticker ready
 

step 2Your decal might come in sections. If it's the case make sure to separate all the sections before doing anything else with a pair of scissors if needed. Decide where you want to place your decal. For more precision, you can use a level and a tape measure.
••• Use painter's tape to hold the decal in the position you like and make two pencil marks on the transfer paper so you'll know where to place your decal after you remove the first layer. 
••• Smooth the back of the decal (where you can see the vinyl manufacturer's logo) with the enclosed plastic card to make it stick more on the transparent layer.

 

Step 3: Peel the backing off

step 3

This step consists of peeling the paper backing from the transfer paper and decal. The hard paper backing is where you can see the vinyl manufacturer's logo. 

••• Turn the decal over so the hard paper backing is facing you and carefully peel the paper backing from the transfer and decal. If it sticks to the paper backing, it's because you didn't smooth the paper backing enough (Step 2). So firmly press the paper backing and the transfer paper back together and repeat the process until the decal sticks to the transfer paper.
••• Now the adhesive from the decal and the transfer paper will be exposed, but make sure they don't fold over and stick to themselves.

 

Step 4: Install the decal on the desired surface

••• Carefully position the decal by lining up the marks on the transfer paper with the painter's tape on the desired surface.
••• Stick the transfer paper to the surface and strongly smooth the transfer paper with the plastic card from the center and working your way out. This allows the adhesive to stick better as well as remove any air bubbles under the decal.

 

Step 5: Peel the transfer paper off


step 5

••• Carefully peel the transfer paper from the surface from one corner and roll it back over onto itself. Do this by keeping pressure against the decal while the transfer paper is being removed.
••• Make sure the decal sticks to the wall and doesn’t come off with the transfer paper. If it does, place the transfer paper back on the surface and smooth again with the plastic card.

••• If bubbles are formed during this phase, you can pierce them with a thin needle.
