Lay your Mr-Sticka adhesive decal on a hard, flat surface and rub firmly over the vinyl decal with a squeegee (credit card, rubber spatula...etc.). This will strengthen the bond between the vinyl decal and the transfer tape (this way the vinyl decal won't stay on the white backing when you remove it - see following step)

Remove the white backing
, making sure the vinyl decal sticks properly to the transfer tape.

Arrange the vinyl decal on the desired surface
. Press the top edge onto the surface and firmly smooth the tape all the way down, avoiding bubbling and wrinkles.

Finish the application by rubbing over the entire vinyl decal with the squeegee in order to remove any air bubbles and activate the bond between the vinyl graphic and the surface

Remove the transfer tape 
from one corner & slowly roll it along the surface. If part of the vinyl decal sticks to the tape, simply roll the tape back, press down firmly & continue peeling.

Remove any air bubbles by rubbing over the decal with a clean cloth (you can also poke bubbles with a fine needle and then smooth it out). On textured surfaces be sure to rub over the vinyl decal very firmly! This will ensure a proper bond between the vinyl decal and the surface, and will prevent it from peeling off over time. This phase is really important to ensure the vinyl decal will adhere properly to the surface. Bring extra care to this step in any case.

     

Voila! We hope you will  enjoy for years your new Mr-Sticka vinyl decor!

 

   Removing Vinyl Decals

  • Using the heat gun or hair-dryer, heat up small areas of your text or sign for no more than 30 seconds. Using a new razor blade start at the bottom right corner and begin lifting the vinyl off. Once a large enough area for you to grab with your fingers is lifted, set the razor aside and begin to pull the letter or portion of the vinyl area. Take your time and when the letter or vinyl becomes difficult to remove, stop and re-heat the area again.  

  • If any glue residue is left on the glass surface simply using either rubbing alcohol or lacquer thinner to wipe away the residue easily.
