Fitting Instructions



Tools needed: Roll of electrical tape or low tack tape, Scissors, Tape measure, Squeegee or old credit card. (A spray bottle with mildly soapy water is optional.)

Cars / Vans / Motorbikes !!!!!!! Please clean the whole area's where Decals/ Stickers are to be fitted to remove any Waxes, Polishes, Grease and any Dirt prior to fitting.

This is very important part !!!!!!!!!!!

1. Without removing the backing paper, position the decal where you want it and place a continuous piece of electrical tape or low tack tape along the top edge of the decal to hold it in place.

Double check to make sure it's lined up the way you want it.

2. If the decal is small enough to apply in one piece go directly to step 4.

3. If the decal is wide and or consists of numerous characters or images make vertical cuts between each character from bottom to top (cutting through the transfer paper and backing paper, but not all the way through the tape) so that each character hangs like a flap against the car, or item being applied to but is held in alignment by the tape.

4. Lift up the decal (or one segment of the decal), being careful not to undo the tape at the top, and starting from the top peel about half the backing paper away from the transfer paper and vinyl letter. Use the squeegee to lay it flat against the car working slowly and carefully from the top to the bottom removing the rest of the backing paper as you go. Use extra care as you lay the letter over any creases to be sure the decal doesn't gap over the crease.

Once all the segments have been applied you can remove all the tape and transfer paper.

5. Remove the transfer paper by pulling at a minimum of 45 degrees angle slowly making sure the letters or images sticks to the surface being applied to

If any bubbles appear under the vinyl, use the squeegee or credit card to work them toward the nearest letter edge. If one appears to be permanent, use a pin or the point of a razor knife to put a small hole in the vinyl, then use the squeegee to work the air toward the hole. Many of the tiny bubbles will disappear with time ­ don't worry about them.

Some people prefer to use a little soapy water in a spray bottle when applying the decals to help prevent bubbles. The water helps keep the decal's adhesive from sticking, allowing you time to work the bubbles toward the edge more easily, but it also tends to make the transfer paper soggy and can ruin it in a hurry. If you use water use it sparingly.

(I prefer the "dry" method.) In colder conditions using soapy water will take longer for them to fully stick by using a hair dryer or heat gun can speed the process up but be very carefull not to over heat the vinyl as it can burn very easy.


Please note: We do not accept any responsibility or any damage caused by the decals or graphics supplied by us. We are also not responsible if the decals are not fitted correctly and or damaged by fitting. This is just a guide on how to fit them.

There are loads of videos on you tube if your still unsure on fitting your new graphics.
