It is also essential to ensure that there are no bubbles trapped inside, and it has a proper professional finish without any wrinkles.
Applying car decal
Clean surface well
At the point of fixing, clean the car surface well. Without the surface is thoroughly cleaned, the decal sticker will not stick in place. It will cling on to the adhesive with dirt and dust on the surface without reaching the car surface and may peel off sooner. You can use rubbing alcohol or light soap water to clean the surface.
Plan the position
Identify the exact positioning of the car decals. The best choice is a well-viewed area, and it requires a little measurement. Measure the decal first and then take the dimensions of the placement area. Mark the center. You can use painter’s tape to be more precise for measurements and angles.
Pro tip: Mark the measurements/angles with painter’s tape.
Peel and apply
If the decal is small, you can easily peel off the decal’s backing to paste it over. If the decal is bigger, then first peel a few inches and then work on it to help you maneuver the material easily. Based on the markings you made, place one edge of the custom-made car decalfirst and smooth it out with a squeeze or other straight edge things like a credit card or so. Get all the bubbles out while smoothening.
Remove decals safely
To remove decals safely, you can use a heat gun or hair dryer to loosen the decal, making it easier to take it off. Move the heat slowly over the edge of the decals until you get a lift of bubble out there.
Just grab the lifted or bubbled edge and then start to peel gently. You can also use an adhesive remover solution to make sure that your vehicle surface is clear of all vinyl remnants.
One best method to remove the decals intact is to use a damp, warm rag to rub gently on the decal. Do not melt the decal in the process, but move the rag around to see if you get a lift out there. Once you get a lift along the edges, then use a scraper to guide it off.
In normal cases, you will be getting the assistance of professional vinyl decal vendors for application and removal support. If you are not confident about your handy skills, it is best to approach a service provider for vinyl decal application and removal, etc.
