Installation Instructions

1. Clean your wall or surface:

Take care that the surface you are applying the decal to is: smooth, dry and free of dust and dirt. Decals can be applied to walls, wood, glass, concrete, metal or any smooth, dry surface. My Sticky Designs decals are removable but may not be repositioned or reused. Do not apply to freshly painted walls! Please wait a minimum of 2 weeks after painting.

2. Preparing your decal:

Lay each decal on a flat surface, graphic side up. If you notice any air bubbles between the decal and clear transfer tape remove them by rubbing on just the vinyl graphic portion of the decal with your fingers to reapply the vinyl to the transfer tape. Once you have removed all the bubbles your decal may not lay flat, to make your decal lay flat carefully lift the transfer tape and vinyl decal away from the paper backing, make sure that the vinyl decal is sticking to the transfer tape. If the decal is not sticking lower the transfer tape back over the part of vinyl that is not sticking and rub the vinyl again with your finger. DO NOT completely remove the transfer tape from the paper, only do one half of the decal at a time. Once you have removed all the air bubbles and your vinyl is laying as flat as you can get it, then press firmly over the entire decal with the edge of a credit card, popsicle stick or similar object. This re-activates the bond between the decal and transfer tape. If any air bubbles were not removed you can put a crease in the vinyl decal where the air bubble is, so be careful.

3. Planning your layout:

Arrange your decal on your surface using masking tape (on the top edge only), DO NOT remove the white backing paper until you are happy with your layout.

4. Apply the decal:

Flip the decal up and starting from any corner, slowly peel the white or blue backing paper away from the transfer tape, the vinyl decal should be sticking to the tape. If some of the decal remains stuck to the backing paper, STOP. Rub the decal in that area and slowly continue peeling until the backing paper is completely removed. For larger decals you may want to remove the backing paper in two or three smaller sections. As you lower your decal against the surface carefully rub with your hand slowly across the decal, starting at the top center and working your way out to the edges and bottom of the decal. Once you have removed all the bubbles you can by hand use your credit card, popsicle stick or similar object to finish the application by rubbing over the entire graphic to remove any air bubbles. Once the air bubbles have been removed carefully pull off the transfer tape making sure that the decal is sticking to your surface and not the transfer tape.

6. Applying decals onto glass:

Follow above directions however, after the transfer tape (backing) is removed, lightly spray the sticky side of the decal with a spray bottle that contains water and a drop of dishwashing liquid.

6. Removing decals:

To remove the decal you can peel it off your surface or if the decal is having some problems you can use a blow dryer to heat up the adhesive to allow the decal to come off your surface easier.

Warning: My Sticky Designs is not responsible for any damage caused by applying or removing a decal from any surface. Apply decals at your own risk.

**Warning** CHOKING HAZARD. Keep out of reach of children. Children may be able to peel small pieces of vinyl off the wall. Do not hang in areas where small children are able to reach. Not for children under 4 years old.
