How to put a decal on
Clean your surface with rubbing alcohol or soap and water. Do not use a window cleaner spray because it will leave a residue behind that will prevent the sticker from sticking well. Make sure there is no dust and water left on the surface.
Peel the decal of paper backing. If the design stays on backing paper, put design back on the paper backing and try again to get all design goes on transparent vinyl.
Level decal on the surface. Stick one side of the decal and then use the homemade squeegee to run and press down design while holding another end in the air. This will make all air go out from under transfer away.
Use a squeegee or debit card ( don’t break it LOL ) to squeeze the air out underneath decal or sticker through the clear transfer foil. This ensures the sticker or decal will stick well to surface and looks decent.
Slowly peel the clear transfer foil off. Be careful not to damage sticker.
Tips while applying stickers on
-Best temp to stick car decals on is about 30 degrees Celsius
-In case you doing it first time get two decals or more to train first
-Watch youtube for more information
How to remove car decals or stickers
Before we start you will need:
-hairdryer or heat gun, we want temp about 60-100 celsius
-squeegee or kind of plastic card to scrape vinyl off
-glue remover, petrol, isopropyl alcohol
Good to have and be like a pro
-laser temp tool
Use the heat gun to heat up all decal to temp about 80celcius-don’t burn your fingers etc
Take your debit/credit card (doesn’t matter is it maestro or visa LOL 😀 )
and scrape this decal out. If it is too hard try to heat it up again this will make glue become softer
When you got all vinyl off the panel or window now it is time to remove the glue. To do that you will need glue remover liquid or isopropyl alcohol ( don’t drink this crap! 😛 ) Spray it on the surface where glue remains and take the microfibre cloth to rub it down until it is dry and no glue remains. If there is still glue use that glue remove potion and again wipe it out with the cloth.
You can skip this step if you are happy with your job been done. Now if you look close you can spot ghost residue. This happens because there was some dirt stuck to edges of decal or sticker. To get this out you will need to polish this surface with polishing paste ( you can get it in any auto parts store) and mop. Use fine paste, you don’t want to cut a clear coat!
4 Tips to Apply Your Car Decals Perfectly!
Applying car decals is no easy task. It’s quite annoying when you spend money to make a beautiful, impeccably designed car decal only to screw up while pasting it on the window of your car. We know that struggle; even we have turned a pretty sticker into a twisted clump. But, we’re here to make sure that you don’t do the same. We’ve compiled a list of four tips that will most definitely help you paste the decals with ease every time.
Clean Your Window Thoroughly
A lot of customers complain that they used window cleaning products before applying their decals and now the stickers are bubbly. This is happening because the cleaning product you used tends to leave behind residue that solidifies and make bubbles in the sticker. We suggest using soap or water to clean the window. You can also use a mixture of water and alcohol where both are present 50-50. The combination of the two will make you windshield squeaky clean and won’t leave behind any residue.
Using Masking Tape
It can be so infuriating when you applied a sticker and just saw that it isn’t straight. The best way to counter this problem is to use tape. Use tape on one side of the decal, take two steps back and see if the sticker is straight. If it isn’t, remove it and try again and again till it is. Once you see that the sticker is straight, remove the tape from one side and start peeling off the backing paper. This is a fool-proof method to ensuring that you don’t alter the positioning of your decal while you’re removing the back paper.
Apply Decals in Moderate Temperature
One thing we recommend to all of our customers is that they don’t apply decals when the weather is too hot or humid. There won’t be any major drawback if you do decide to put a decal on a summer day. But, to achieve best results, we recommend that you don’t do that. Try to look for a day when the temperature is within 50F to 90F because this is the optimal temperature to apply stickers.
The Wet Method
Small decals are as easy as pasting a sticker on a notebook. But, large stickers can be quite difficult to apply on first try. Now, the masking tape can help to position a sticker perfect, but the wet method is even better. Once you’ve cleaned the area, wet it again with a solution of 5% soap and 95% water. This will dull the adhesive of the sticker and will prevent it from sticking immediately. You will get a few minutes to appropriately position the decal as you please. You can also use a cloth or something else to remove any bubble in the sticker. Once the soap dries out, the decal will stick firmly just like it is supposed to. But, this team, it will be pasted impeccably.
How to get sticker residue off glass
Same as you read in steps above but do not use any metal scrapers or blades. You can scratch window surface.
Monogram as decal
Decals can be made same way as monograms. For instance, logos can be made in this method. Our monogram is made in one colour of vinyl. For businesses, we can adopt monograms as a logo. Acronyms have been used since ages so they can be easy recognizes by almost everyone.

Decals are not only for cars
also, laptop decals or skins are a thin vinуl (оr rubber in some саѕеѕ) covering that соvеrѕ thе bulk оf the outside оf the lарtор.
Aѕ with other dеviсеѕ, ѕkinѕ, or “wrарѕ” саn рrоtесt your соmрutеr from ѕсrаtсhеѕ аnd other fоrmѕ оf damage, such as water dаmаgе.
Skinѕ аrе different frоm саѕеѕ in thаt саѕеѕ are ѕресifiсаllу dеѕignеd to protect, and ѕkinѕ аrе primarily dеѕignеd tо bе nоn-intruѕivе аnd аеѕthеtiсаllу pleasing.
They are made of diffеrеnt mаtеriаlѕ. Whilе thеу’rе mоѕtlу vinуl, lарtор skins саn аlѕо bе mаdе оut of сlоth-likе mаtеriаl.
Hоwеvеr, these materials оftеn don’t provide аѕ high оf a level оf protection.

While most аrе rеlаtivеlу thin (е.g. аrоund 1/32 оf аn inсh), some аrе a bit thicker which can be very good for the laptop.
Car decals are popular
Decals are very popular and they will be even more because of they quite easy to be made at home or garage. But sadly Chinese Decals owned markets like eBay or Etsy. It is easy to understand there are lower taxes and labour. When it comes to quality you have to understand that by saying “decal” It is not precisely what you will be shown on eBay or easily google. The decal can be made two ways. Print on clear vinyl and then cut out from vinyl or all decal designs will be cut out from vinyl. I hope it makes sense.
My name is Bart and I’m a Pole and is the owner of vleporama.com and all social media profiles contain vleporama keyword. I started my hobby back in 2009 when I bought the first pc cut 630 plotter. I started learning how to use it and how to make cute designs. Therefore I hadn’t got the idea of how my hobby gonna grows in next years. I started selling my crafts for my friends how had an idea of what to cut and then my job was to cut it out and deliver to them. It was hard ad beginning to start but today after so much time it is still hard to live from decal crafts. Do not get me wrong nowadays I can cut difficult designs but I struggling with selling them or just to show them to correct people on the internet. There is no way to free advertising because I have to make killer content and promote it. It’s not an easy task these days. Advertising cost a lot more than 1 month of selling my car decals. Yes, it is not a business, to spend more money on advertising than income what I getting. To be continued…
Hopefully, it explains you everything.
