Vinyl Decal Installation Instructions

It's Free!

Do not apply in cold weather - adhesive may stick but will lift easily.

Do not apply in extreme heat, apply in the shade - vinyl will get very soft and stretch.

Do not use alcohol to apply - it will destroy the adhesive.

Do not use ice scraper on the sticker/decal - may lift or break pieces off..

Do not touch the adhesive backing - oils from your skin will prevent sticking.

Do not point high pressure car wash nozzle at the edges of the sticker/decal for a long

time - may lift or break pieces.

Car washes are safe.

Before application make sure there is no wax or rainx products on the surface -

adhesive may stick but will lift easily.

Don't apply wax over graphics, especially if the wax contains any petroleum


Temperature Recommendations 

Surface temperatures MUST be between 50 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit before attempting the

installation. As a general rule, if the surface is hot to the touch it's over 90 degrees

Fahrenheit. Adhesive becomes brittle when it gets too cold and gummy when it gets too hot.

Applications outside the recommended range of 50 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit reduce the adhesives' ability to perform. 

Cleaning Procedures

All surfaces are contaminated to some degree. To ensure good adhesion to any vehicle

surface it is critical that you follow these recommended procedures in decontaminating and

preparing the surface prior to any vinyl product installation.

1. Wash and rinse the area with liquid dish detergent and warm water. Then dry the surface

with a clean, lint-free towel or cloth.

2. Finish up the cleaning process by wiping down the entire area with Isopropyl Alcohol

(rubbing alcohol). You are now ready to apply the vinyl.

Application Procedures

You can choose to apply vinyl in one of two ways; dry or wet. Applying vinyl dry does not

allow for any mistakes, and recommended for small decals. Once the vinyl touches the

surface, there is no removal without damage. We suggest that all customers use the wet

process for larger graphics.
