Helpful hints when applying our graphics

So, you have received your order and it's sitting there staring at you, and you are thinking 'this is overwhelming.'  Don't be afraid!  It's really not hard, and once you have done it, you will be hooked.  Here are a few suggestions...

1.  Don't get too excited when your package arrives and try to put your decals up right away... unroll them and let them sit and rest for awhile to try to keep them from rolling up on you while you are applying.  Also, wait for some help, especially on larger decals...an extra set of hands definitely helps.

2.  Take it slow...Seriously, don't do this in a hurry. 

3.  When applying your decals the flatter the surface, the better.  But if you do have to fit somewhere textured, take it even slower.  It is not uncommon for the vinyl to not want to stay on the wall...it will want to come off the wall when you are taking off the transfer paper... it's okay. Just pull the transfer paper back at a 45 degree angle very slowly. I am right handed, so I usually pull the paper with my left hand, and use my right hand to help the vinyl separate from the transfer paper.

As always, do not hesitate to call or email if you have any questions at all...we want you to be 100% satisfied with your vinyl decals and lettering.
