Before applying these types of stickers, it’s important to make sure the sticker and transfer tape are pressed firmly together. To do so, apply pressure evenly across the tan transfer tape with the supplied plastic card. This will ensure that the sticker doesn’t come up with the backing paper during installation.
Pre-wash the area where you’ll be applying the sticker using soap and water. After cleaning with soapy water, rinse thoroughly with water until no soap or residue remains. Do not use window-cleaning products. They may leave a residue behind, making your sticker cling less effectively. When dry, wipe area with supplied alcohol pad.
For the best results, install your stickers in a shaded area away from direct sunlight. When possible, you should apply stickers when the temperature is above 50°F and below 90°F.
Masking tape can help ensure that your sticker is positioned exactly where you want it. Leaving the white backing paper in place and facing the surface you’re applying it to, position the sticker where you want it to go. Place a piece of masking tape along the top edge of the sticker—this fixes it in the proper location. Then, lift the sticker as if it’s on a hinge, and peel off the backing paper at an angle close to the surface, do not pull the backing paper straight out. While holding onto the bottom edge, slowly lower the sticker, using the thumb of your other hand to press from the center out and gradually working your way from top to bottom. Rub a squeegee or supplied plastic card firmly across the sticker through the tan transfer tape. This ensures the sticker will adhere to the surface and removes any air bubbles that may have formed.
You can apply most smaller stickers without using water, but for large stickers, use this trick. After cleaning your surface area, wet the area again using a spray bottle and a solution of about 5% soap / 95% water. Apply the sticker while the area is still wet. This will keep it from adhering immediately and give you time to reposition if necessary. It also enables you to remove any bubbles using a squeegee or the supplied plastic card. The soapy water will dry and leave your sticker firmly affixed.
Our stickers come with three layers: 1) transfer tape, the tan top layer that clings to the non-adhesive side of the sticker and holds the sticker together; 2) the middle layer is the sticker; 3) the bottom layer of white paper is the backing paper, that clings to the adhesive side of the sticker.
Also, once you’ve applied your sticker, be sure to leave the transfer tape in place for at least 3 hours and up to 24 hours before gently removing it. Peel off the backing paper at an angle close to the surface, do not pull the backing paper straight out as this can lift the sticker off the surface. Watch carefully while peeling the transfer tape and use the plastic card to gently push parts of the sticker down that might lift. In very cold winter months, you may need to leave the transfer tape on even longer. To speed up the process when it’s cold out, you can warm the application surface using a blow dryer on low heat.
