COLE SIGNS & GRAPHICS
VINYL GRAPHICS INSTALLATION GUIDE
Installing adhesive vinyl graphics is simple if you follow these step by step instructions. In this example we are applying a windshield decal to an automobile using the hinge method. The same principle used in this example applies to all hinge applications regardless of the surface or size of the graphic.
Step 1 - Clean the application area with alcohol. In this example we are applying vinyl to glass. Because it is porous, glass should be cleaned several times, especially if rainex or wax has ever been used.
Step 2 - Center the decal onto the application surface. Put small pieces of tape on the top corners to hold it in place.
Step 2 - Apply a piece of masking tape across the top of the vinyl graphic thus forming a hinge.
Step 3 - Take a pair of scissors and cut between each letter. (Either all at one time or one by one as you apply)
Step 4 - Fold each letter up, peel off the backing and squeegee the letter on starting at the top and working towards the bottom. (TO AVOID WRINKLES HOLD THE LETTER AWAY FROM THE GLASS WHILE SQUEEGEEING IT DOWN) Repeat this action for all of the letters.
Step 5 - Peel off the transfer tape and you are done.
