How to install a decal - Vinyl decal

At Vinyl Disorder, we make top-quality decals of premium materials and use the latest printing techniques. Our care in producing custom decals and stickers shows in the pride and quality of our craftsmanship. On every decal you get from us, whether for a vehicle, a wall, a window or somewhere else, you'll get a sticker with vivid colors, clear, crisp text and eye-catching graphics.

But our end of the process is only the start of showing off a great vinyl die-cut decal. The rest is up to you. Fortunately, it's quick and easy for even novices to install our vinyl die-cut decals and get professional-looking results. Simply follow these instructions for how to apply a vinyl die-cut decal to see how easy the process really is.

The first thing to do after you receive your new die-cut decal is to inspect the surface you're going to put it on. Clean the surface thoroughly, making sure to remove any dust, dirt or grime. This will help ensure proper adhesion. We recommend to not use any cleaner products that could leave a residue behind like Windex. We recommend just good old rubbing alcohol. All surfaces must be cleaned first even if they look clean, especially walls! If you did just paint your walls please stop as it is best to wait at least 1 month but some paints can take up to 2 months to fully gas out. If you apply a decal too early on a freshly painted wall the gasses will push the decal right off your surface.

Next, smooth out your decal either by hand or with a squeegee, a simple, inexpensive tool available from Vinyl Disorder, to remove any wrinkles or ridges. Even if your decal has been crushed in transit, you'll be surprised at how it will reform back into shape with a little care from you.

Now, put your decal in place. It's a good idea to take measurements, if you want to exactly center your die-cut decal. That will mean using a tape measure to ensure equal distances of the decal's edges from the sides, top and bottom of the surface you're applying it to. Of course, you don't necessarily have to center your decal - although most people do. You can go for your own unique, offbeat look by positioning your decal off center, if you like.

Then, remove the backing from your decal. Press it firmly against the surface you wish to apply it to. Use your hands or a squeegee to remove any wrinkles or small bumps so that the decal lies as flat as possible against the surface.

When your decal is lying smoothly against the surface and looks exactly the way you want it and is where you want it, simply remove the protective front cover. That's it. Your vinyl die-cut decal is ready to turn heads and give you years of service.

Of course, if you have any problems or questions, feel free to call our knowledgeable support staff toll free at Vinyl Disorder. You can also email us or contact us via instant chat. We'll give you helpful answers you can trust.
