 Summary of How To Install Custom Decals onto a Vehicle

Clean the surface of your vehicle and align the graphic how you want it. Before removing the backer, hold your custom vinyl decal up to the space in which you’re going to apply it. Make sure your custom vinyl decal fits in the space, and hold it straight. Align custom vinyl decal and tape in place

Hold your custom vinyl decal in place, making sure to keep it straight, and apply strips of masking tape to the edge.  These will be your registration marks.

Cut the registration tape carefully cut masking tape along the edge of your custom vinyl decal, making sure not to cut through your vehicle’s clear coat. Remove the backer carefully from your custom vinyl decal, and make sure not to let it stick to itself.

 Now that that’s done you can, re-register your custom vinyl decal. Align the masking tape on your custom vinyl decal with the masking tape left on your vehicle.

Squeegee your custom vinyl decal in place. DO NOT lay your custom vinyl decal down all at once. Start at the top or from one side and work your way across, squeegeeing from the middle to the edges, and overlapping strokes.  This will help to avoid bubbles and wrinkles in your custom vinyl decal.
