Care instructions

It's all about location, location, location! Your decal should be placed on a flat surface with minimal bumps to ensure an even application. It is also important that you don't apply your decal to a cold surface. (50 -90 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal.) Also make sure that your surface if clean (even if you think it is, wipe with alcohol to ensure a solid transfer).

Care instructions

1. Wipe clean the surface where you want to apply the decal, and allow it plenty of time to dry.
2. Carefully peel off the white backing. This is most easily done by turning over your decal so the design is face down. Then start in a corner and slowly remove the white backing. This leaves only the front two layers: the transfer taper and your decal.
3. Slowly place your decal onto the surface. Using a credit card, start in the center and carefully smooth it outward. Be sure not to press too hard or you will rip the decal.
4. Start in the corner and very slowly remove the clear transfer tape. Only the decal should remain.

What is the difference between types of vinyl?

Removable decals are made with Oracal 631 vinyl. They have a matte finish and a life span of about 3 years indoors, depending on their placement. Perfect for your cell phone, laptop, walls, mirrors, shelves - really any flat surface - and they won't peel off the paint or leave a sticky residue behind.

Permanent decals are made with Oracal 651 vinyl. They have a glossy finish and a life span of about 6 years outdoors, depending on their placement. They can handle water and weather. They are great for bumper stickers, kitchen canisters, and glasses. They are not recommended for walls because they can remove paint and damage the surface.
