About our Vinyl Transfer Decals
What is a Vinyl Transfer Decal?
A vinyl transfer decal is a computer-cut piece of vinyl with permanent adhesive backing. Applying a vinyl transfer decal is easy, but a little more involved than a sticker.
Please read the application instructions and tips on the back side of this paper to get the best results.
Clean the Surface
Clean the application surface with 70% isopropyl alcohol and allow to completely dry. Be sure to remove any dirt, dust or debris and verify the surface is free from any grease, wax or residue.
Ensure Tape Adherence
Place the decal face down against a flat surface and use a credit card to smooth over the back side. This will help make sure the decal is fully adhered to the transfer tape prior to application.
Peel the Backing
With the decal face down, carefully peel back the bottom left corner of the backing paper, ensuring the vinyl sticks to the transfer tape. If the vinyl lifts up, slowly lower the backing paper back down and use your credit card to smooth over the area where the vinyl is lifting.
Carefully place the decal (still attached to the transfer tape) to the surface you wish to apply the decal.
Using a credit card, carefully smooth over the transfer tape starting from the center and moving outward. Do this multiple times in all directions to ensure the decal completely adheres to the surface.
Peel the Transfer Tape
Slowly peel away the transfer tape from the decal. Make sure the vinyl stays adhered to the application surface and does not come up with the transfer tape. If it does, lay it back down and use the credit card to press the decal back onto the application surface.
That's it! Your decal is now properly applied. Please allow at least 24 hours to pass before exposing your decal to the elements such as rain, water or dust.
