STICKER APPLICATION GUIDE
1. REMOVING OLD STICKERS
Old stickers can be removed easily using gentle heat from a heat gun or hairdryer. Please note: Some old stickers can be very hard to remove after years of sun exposure, and that sometimes the only effective way is to sand and repaint the surface beforehand.
2. PREPPING THE AREA
The surface that you will be applying the sticker on needs to be thoroughly cleaned and free of any old stickers, glue residue, dirt or grease etc. This can be done using either methylated spirits or thinners.
3. APPLYING THE STICKER
There is a layer of transfer film on top of the sticker. Pick up the transfer film by the corner and carefully remove the backing paper, so the sticky side of the sticker is now exposed. Place the sticker lightly onto the area and adjust it into the correct position, using a tape measure if necessary. DO NOT apply any pressure to the sticker until it is in the correct position.
Using the plastic applicator provided and using consistent pressure, start in the centre and work towards the edges. The sticker requires pressure over one hundred percent of the surface.
Stucco Corrugated Surface
Using your thumb and working horizontally, apply even pressure over one hundred percent of the surface. Please note: Stucco Surfaces require more pressure to stick than smooth surfaces.
Smooth Corrugated Surface
Using your thumb and working horizontally, apply even pressure over one hundred percent of the surface. Please note: Inconsistent or uneven pressure will result in bubbles.
4. REMOVING TRANSFER FILM
Take care when removing transfer film so you don’t tear the sticker. Pull it back onto itself, as close to the surface as possible.
5. REMOVING BUBBLES
Bubbles can be pricked with a sharp blade releasing the air trapped underneath, then pushing flat.
6. POST HEATING
For better adhesion the sticker can be heated to 100 degrees celsius using a heat gun, taking care not to scorch or damage the sticker.
