A big part of how good your graphics will look lies in how they're fitted to your chosen surface; follow this guidance for the best results.
Step 1: Clean Surface
Make sure the surface is free from grit, grease and dirt, or the adhesive on the back of your graphics will adhere to that instead of your surface. In the absence of specialised cleaning products, warm soapy water will be sufficient. Be sure to rinse off any soap residue with cold water afterwards.
Step 2: Levelling
Place your graphic where you'd like it while the backing paper is still attached. When you're happy with the placement, use masking tape along one edge to hold it in place, creating a makeshift "hinge".
Step 3: Remove Backing Paper
Slowly remove the backing paper about 8-10 inches at a time, slowly working your graphic towards the surface. Take it slow, using a clean squeegee to apply pressure from the centre of the graphic outwards to the edges. This will allow you to remove any air bubbles.
It's also a good idea to keep a firm grip on your graphic as you install it, ensuring you work slowly to minimise the chance of new air bubbles forming. On large graphics, you may want to have another person help you to hold the graphic while you work it on.
Step 4: Remove Application Paper
Once your graphic is applied, remove the application paper by pulling it backwards at around 180 degrees, reducing the risk of removing the graphic from the surface. Once the application paper is removed, make sure that all edges of your graphic are fully attached to the surface.
Step 5: Remove Air Bubbles
Any remaining air bubbles can be removed by making a small pin prick in the bubble surface, then working out the air with your finger.
Step 6: Aftercare
Wipe down your surface and your graphic to remove any glue or marks (but refrain from using liquids). Our adhesive can take around two days to fully set. For best results, avoid washing or dampening the area near the graphic for at least 7 days.
