Applying Small Vinyl Signs
Gently peeling back the application tape (clear sticky film) from the paper backing sheet will reveal your graphic stuck to the reverse of the application tape. Discard the backing liner. Place on application surface and squeegee down. Gently peel the application tape back on itself. Tip: It’s best to pull the application tape off at a sharp angle (so it’s parallel to the surface)
Place graphic (which is on the backing sheet and already has application tape applied) onto the application surface, and when located correctly secure in place with tape.
Applying Larger Vinyl Signs It is recommended that you use this method for larger signs as they can be more difficult to align, this method makes it easier to apply, align and prevents bubbles and the vinyl application tape sticking in the wrong place. Before you apply your graphic you first have to ensure the surface to which you are applying it is clean and free from dust, grit or any residue.
Place a piece of tape in the centre of the graphic, running vertically
Leaving the backing liner in place (the white shiny layer), peel back the application tape and graphic to the right. Temporarily secure in place and cut off the backing liner that belongs to the left side of the graphic
Take the graphic that you temporarily fixed. From the vertical centre tape start to squeegee (using a credit card/ice scraper) from the centre towards the top edge and then again from the centre to the bottom edge. Continue working across the graphic from the right in the centre to the left side
Remove the centre tape
Leaving the backing liner in place, peel back the application tape and graphic to the left. Temporarily secure in place and remove backing liner that belongs to the right side of the graphic
Squeegee down the right side of the graphic. Start to squeegee from the centre towards the edge and then again from the centre to the bottom edge. Continue working across the graphic from the left in the centre to the right side.
