Static Cling Etched Decal Instructions
Read ALL Instructions Carefully
Clean hands thoroughly to prevent any
dirt/oils from adhering to the surface of the decal. Also clean the area where
decal will be applied thoroughly with window cleaner and wipe dry with a
lint-free cloth. ***Note*** Do Not allow the backing paper that
is against the decal to get wet!!! If backing paper gets wet, you will not be
able to remove the decoration from it and it will be ruined.
Spray cleaned glass "very" liberally (the
more liquid used - the easier the application) with water or glass cleaner
before applying decoration. A substantial amount of moisture is required
between the decal and surface to give an even appearance once fully dried.
Never install on a dry surface.
With dry hands, peel the decal from the
backing paper. Lightly spray the back side (shiny side) of decal with water or
glass cleaner. This will prevent it from clinging to itself and aid in its
application. REMEMBER it is necessary to place the side of the decal that is
against the backing paper to the glass. It will not adhere on etched side!
If patterns are to face one another and, left & right designs are not
available, apply one to the interior and one to the exterior of the surface.
Place the shiny side of the decoration
against the wet surface and then position it by sliding and moving into the
desired location. At this point you may also want to spray the outside of the
decal that you will squeegee. This will allow the squeegee to "glide" over the
decal easier. Using a rubber-tipped squeegee, plastic driver's license or
credit card (making sure there are no rough edges), work from the center
outward and squeegee out "all" the excess air and moisture. Then, wipe
dry with a lint-free cloth.
If any tiny bubbles appear between the decal
and the surface, repeat Step 4, making sure to thoroughly wet the "surface"
again and squeegee "all" of the moisture out. Any excess moisture should
evaporate within a 24 hour period.
Interior application is recommended. Please check with the window manufacturer
before applying window cleaner to any plastic surface. If window cleaner cannot
be used, a very light soapy water solution is recommended for application and
TINTED WINDOWS: Your decoration may give a more
desirable appearance on the exterior surface, especially if the tint is dark.
This has no adverse effect on your decoration.
If, at any time bubbles occur (bubbles appear
as little white dots), simply peel back the area affected and re-apply. Bubbles
that are visible only from the glass side are due to insufficient moisture
during application. Spray a generous amount of window cleaner to wet the glass
and material before you squeegee. If you come across a stubborn edge that
won't continue to cling to the glass, just spray more liquid under the area of
the decal and use a blow dryer on a medium or warm setting and squeegee again.
