Many Hands Make Light Work


Although clear vinyl is easy to apply with these instructions, two people are needed to ensure it lays flat and adheres correctly. The extra pair of hands will also be useful for peeling the vinyl off the backing as it is very sticky stuff!


What You Need
• A Squeegee (the window cleaner’s favourite tool, all hardware shops have them).
• Masking tape (don’t be tempted to use any other as this could damage the decal)
• Glass Cleaner or Shower Shine Spray
• Kitchen Roll
• Stanley Knife
• Tape Measure
• Patience


Be Prepared


To ensure you have the perfect grease free surface for applying you long lasting vinyl clean your windows with window cleaner and fresh kitchen roll. Choose a dry day as moisture in the air could hinder the tackiness of the backing.


Top Tip
We recommend using a soft cloth to fold around the squeegee as this will prevent any scratches on the material.


Eight Steps to Success


1. Find the centre point using a tape measure to ensure your decal will be perfectly aligned


2. Carefully begin removing the backing, just a few centimetres at first. Fold the non-sticky paper down exposing the edge that you are going to attach to your window.


3. Now attach the few centimetres of exposed vinyl to the window. Use the squeegee to remove any bumps. Use patience, and don’t be tempted to remove the rest of the backing, instead secure with masking tape and then utilise the extra pair of hands.


4. Have your helper hold it away from the window as you remove the backing by pulling downwards a few inches at a time. Ensure the masking tape stays in place.


5. As you helper holds the clear vinyl away from the window, generously spray the window with water.


6. Your helper can now lay the clear vinyl onto the moistened window and continue to remove the backing slowly until the full image is in place. Once the entire image is in place and you’ve squeegeed to the end, squeegee again from the middle outwards to ensure a flat finish.

7. Remove the tape and squeegee the edge. You can now wipe away any moisture using a paper towel around the edges.


8. Step back and admire your handiwork, your decal has now been successfully applied.

 

To Ensure a Perfect Finish

Use your Stanley knife to pierce any bubbles that the squeegee can’t remove then go over with a cloth to remove the air and flatten the vinyl.


Occasionally streaking may occur immediately after installation but they will  disappear within two weeks, once the vinyl has had a chance to settle in its new position.
