Vinyl Application & Removal
Ready to add some fun to your spaces with our Vinyl Decals?
Here's everything you need to know on applying & removing our decals!
Each decal will arrive as three layers of material.
The top layer is clear transfer tape, which is used to apply the decal.
The second layer is the actual vinyl lettering, which is the decal itself.
The bottom layer is the backing paper, which the vinyl is stuck on to.
When you receive your decal in the mail, lay it flat and firmly swipe a credit card or similar flat object across the top of the transfer tape. This helps to make sure the transfer tape stays properly adheres to the decal.
This is especially important to ensure the transfer tape lifts your vinyl from the backing tape.
Applying Your Decals
Step 1. Completely clean and dry the desired application surface, do not use bleach or other abrasive substances.
Step 2. Carefully peel the transfer tape (clear sticky layer) from the backing paper, at a sharp angle, you want to ensure that the vinyl lettering lifts from the backing paper, and the front sticks to the transfer tape.
Step 3. Align the decal and press it onto the desired surface. Firmly run a credit card across the transfer tape to make sure the decal adheres to the surface. Leave to set for a couple of minutes, swipe the card again after setting.
Step 4. Slowly peel the transfer tape from the top of the decal. If any part of the decal starts to come up with the tape, run over that part of the decal with a credit card and try to peel the tape again.

Removing Your Decals
A razor blade or scraper may be used to remove decals from glass, such as mirrors, car windows, and home/store windows.
Do not use a blade or scraping tool on any surface that could be scratched or damaged.
For removing decals from the surface of electronic devices, use your fingernail to peel up the edges of the decal, being careful not to scratch the surface. For wall decals, peel the decal as you would from an electronic device. For more stubborn wall decals, a blow dryer may be used to heat the decal and aid in removing it.
After removing your decals from glass, windows or mirrors - you may notice adhesive residue left over. This is due to the strong vinyl we use, to ensure it lasts. However, this is easily removed from those surfaces with glass/window cleaner, some warm water and a microfibre cloth, or you can purchase an adhesive remover should you want to switch out vinyls regularly and want a simple effective removal method often!
