CLEAN YOUR SURFACE
Prepare your cleaning solution mixing water with just a drop of liquid soap.
Firstly, thoroughly clean the application surface. Surfaces can be cleaned with a paper towel using soapy solution.
Use scraper to remove small paint or dirt particles if needed.
Avoid using solvents, household surface cleaners or window cleaners as they can leave residues that reduce the effectiveness of the vinyl adhesion.
TAKE OFF THE BACKING SHEET
Place your vinyl on a dust free ﬂat surface (e.g. table top).
Secure corners of the vinyl with weights to avoid folding back
(tins of baked beans will do nicely).
Wet your ﬁngers to avoid sticking to the adhesive.
Peel off the backing paper. Start from one of the corners and carefully peel off the backing sheet from the underside.
Once the backing sheet has been removed, thoroughly spray water on the adhesive side of the vinyl.
Spray some more water on a window, water will help to cling the vinyl on and it will be easyer to slide the vinyl to position.
Apply the adhesive side of the vinyl to the window so that it clings on to the wet area.
Use your squeegee to push out the water. Squeezing carefully, smooth the vinyl onto your surface outwards from the center
Once the vinyl has been positioned, spray some more water on the vinyl.
Trim the excess ﬁlm or design by trapping the sharp blade between the card and window.
Dry off any excess liquid.
HOW TO REMOVE VINYL
Use ﬁngernails or a blade to pick at and lift an edge of the vinyl. Slowly and ﬁrmly peel back the vinyl along the surface as opposed to straight out.
To remove vinyl from glass you can also use hot water (not boiling).
The adhesive can sometimes remain on the surface, particularly if the vinyl has been in place for a number of years. If you are having trouble removing it with window cleaner a more effective result will be achieved with an acetone based adhesive remover.
Vinyl can be cleaned with a soft, non-abrasive cleaning cloth. Use a warm soapy solution, and rinse afterwards. Do not use abrasive cleaners or high pressure washers or steam cleaners
