How to Install Vinyl Decals.
There are two ways to install vinyl decals: The wet method, and the dry method.
The Wet Method:
This method is easier especially for beginners since when the surface and decal is still wet, you can still move it around until you’re happy with the placement. This method of application is usually sued with vinyl window decals and clings.
- To start off, thoroughly clean the surface you’ll be sticking the decal to.
- Create a mixture of liquid soap and water and put it inside a spray bottle.
- Remove the paper backing and spray the decal surface.
- Carefully stick the vinyl decal on the surface. Adjust as needed.
- Use a squeegee to remove air pockets and excess moisture.
The Dry Method:
- Applying custom decals dry is the usual method of installing.
- Clean the surface you will use with soap and water. Use a clean cloth to pat dry.
- Position the vinyl decal. Ensure that it is properly aligned on both sides.
- Remove the liner from one of the top corners and carefully stick the decal. Apply gentle pressure.
- Using your hand or a squeegee as a guide, slowly peel away more of the liner and apply gentle pressure. Continue until the whole decal is applied.
- Starting from the center, use a squeegee to smooth out air bubbles that may have formed.
Vinyl decals are weatherproof and should last for years. However, routine care and maintenance ensures that your decal will always look its best.
- Every week, wipe the vinyl decal surface with a clean, damp cloth to remove dust and dirt.
- If you notice that grime or mold has started to build up, immediately remove the decal and wash with mild soap and warm water. Set aside to dry. Do the same for the surface it was stuck on.
- Once dry, reapply the vinyl decal using the steps outlined above.
