Simple use the online designer tool above to create the lettering you require.
We will send your lettering out ready to appy comlete with instructions backing tape all ready to apply.
Installation Suggestion: Roll decal in hollow tube shape prior to installation. This will help with the decal release
when applied to surface.
The surface must be a hard, flat, and non-porous. We strongly suggest you wait at least 60 days
after painting a surface before applying any decal, because should you ever wish to remove the
decal the paint will come off with it if the paint is not properly cured before application.
Surface Temperature and Weather Conditions
Adequate surface temperature and weather conditions are important.
• The surface temperature should be between 60°F and 90°F, with 70°F to 80°F being the ideal range.
• It can’t be raining or even drizzling. Decals must be kept absolutely dry until installed.
• Avoid installing decals in direct sunlight. Surface temperatures in direct sunlight often change
rapidly and could cause blistering or poor adhesion of decal.
1. Determine surface for decal to be applied to. Wash with soap and water or glass cleaner as
appropriate and dry thoroughly. Surface should be dirt, oil, moisture, and lint free.
2. Tack decal to the surface using masking tape with sticker facing front (not backwards). Once you are
satisfied with the positioning, tape the entire length of the top edge using one continuous strip of tape.
This will create a "hinge" along the top, still allowing the paper backing to be removed.
3. Peel the paper backing off carefully, the decal will stick to the application tape. Start at a corner on the
hinged edge and peel back gently. Be sure that the decal does not touch anything until it is burnished.
Note: Make sure that entire decal sticks to the application paper.
4. Using a plastic squeegee, driver’s license, credit card, etc. burnish with firm steady pressure. Start
each stroke in the center and burnish in straight parallel strokes. Overlap each stroke to avoid
bubbles and wrinkles. Be sure not to let the decal touch the surface until the burnisher puts it there.
5. Remove masking tape used to position decal in step 2, carefully pull the application paper at a sharp angle.
Start at a top corner, and pull down as parallel to the surface as feasible.
Note: Verify that the decal is staying attached to surface when removing the application paper.
Dealing with Bubbles
You may possibly end up with some bubbles in your decal job. Small bubbles will go away in time
(the film breathes, and will flatten out after a few weeks at an appropriate temperature). If you want
to work on the bubbles immediately apply moderate heat, then poke them with a pin, pressing the
vinyl down with your thumb immediately afterwards.
