Small to Medium Size Graphics

The ideal temperature range for installing your graphics is 40-90 degrees F
If the temperature is below 40 degrees F, heat the surface the lettering/graphic is being applied to with a blow dryer and work in the sun.
If the surface temperature is above 90 degrees F, cool the surface with cold water and work in the shade.

bulletClean the outside surface where you will be applying your lettering/graphic.  70% denatured alcohol works best at removing dirt and wax.
bulletPeel the application tape off of the paper backing. Peel slowly to make sure the lettering comes off with the tape.
bulletOPTIONAL:  The surface can be misted with water, if desired, to allow for easier adjustment of placement.
bulletLightly stick tape on surface, tape side out, at desired location.  Reposition as necessary.
bulletApply by running squeegee (or edge of credit card) across the tape from the center out OR from one side to the other.   Make sure to apply pressure over all of the lettering/graphic to ensure proper adhesion.
bulletLet dry for a few minutes if water was used.
bulletPeel off tape at an angle (do not pull straight out) making sure all of the lettering/graphic stays down. If the lettering comes up with the tape simply lay the tape back down and re-squeegee.
bulletUse pin to pop any bubbles & press with finger.
