Dry application

Please note that vinyl graphics are designed for smooth, glossy surfaces.

Thoroughly clean the application surface prior to fitting. Make sure the surface is dry and there is no remaining residue. 

1. Attach the graphic in the desired position from the top using masking tape all the way along. 

2. Cut from the bottom to the top  in between shapes or letters to form manageable sections.

3. One at a time, lift each section and carefully remove the backing paper to reveal the adhesive side. The backing paper should be pulled slowly at almost 180 degrees away from the application tape to so that the vinyl doesnt come away with the backing paper. 

4. Pull the graphic tightly from masking tape hinge at approx. 45 degrees from the surface. Work the squeege from top to bottom, or work your way down moving side to side. Apply firmly to avoid trapping any air underneath, creating bubbles.

5. Once applied, carefully remove the application tape to reveal your finished graphic. If there are air bubbles, simply pop them with a small sharp scalpel blade or pin.


Wet Application

Please note that vinyl graphics are designed for smooth, glossy surfaces.

Thoroughly clean the application surface prior to fitting. Make sure the surface is dry and there is no remaining residue. 

1. Put a couple of drops of washing up liquid into some water, and heavily spray the solution onto the application area.

2. Remove the backing paper from the graphic, and heavily spray the sticky side, leaving no areas dry.

3. With the adhesive side now wet, the graphic can be easily slid in to position.Using a felt squeegee (or one wrapped with tissue paper)  push all of the water from the middle out through the sides until the graphic looks completely flat onto the surface.

4. Allow approx 24 hours to dry before removing application tape, if applicable.
