STICKER APPLICATION


PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AS WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE TO STICKERS DURING INSTALL. 

PLEASE NEVER USE GLASS CLEANERS AS THEY WILL DESTROY ADHESIVES AND CAUSE THE STICKER ADHESIVE TO NOT BIND TO THE WINDOW.

Sticker application is a simple yet sometimes difficult thing! 
With diecuts (especially specialty finishes like oil slick & sparkle,) you'll need to be extremely careful to make the the sticker stick to the transfer paper. 

The best way I have found to do this and is recommended by AWStickers is as follows. 

FLIP TIP: To get the vinyl apart from the backing, simply flip the vinyl over so that the letters are now facing down with the back of the liner face up. SLOWLY peel the liner while having pressure on the back of the sticker. Sometimes small pieces wont attach to the transfer paper, to fix this pressure back down on the sticker and peel that part again. With Oil Slick/Sparkle finishes it can be more difficult - Patience is KEY!

Using a squeege is recommended but definitely not needed.

Step 1) 
Clean the area with soap and water, please don't use glass cleaners as this will leave a residue behind that will prevent the sticker from adhering.

Step 2) This is optional, but recommended, especially for intricate stickers. Go over the back of the sticker with a squeegee or credit card. This will make it cling to the transfer tape & remove air bubbles that may have formed before peeling.

Step 3) 
Pick a corner and slowly peel at a 45 degree angle ensuring that the sticker is coming off cleanly. If the sticker clings to the backing paper, repeat step 2 and try again. 

Step 4)
 Slowly lower the sticker onto your desired surface and go over it again with a squeegee or credit card to ensure an easier peel in the next step. 

Step 5)
 Much like step 3, pick a corner and slowly peel at a 45 degree angle. If any part of the sticker comes up with the transfer paper, repeat step 4.
