|IMPORTANT! Our decals will not adhere to raw untreated or unsealed wood surfaces.
Our guitar decals consist of three parts:
Top - application tape (may be either white or transparent depending on decal size & model)
Middle - vinyl decal
Bottom - waxed backing paper (never get this part wet!)
IMPORTANT: Our decals will not adhere to porous surfaces such as raw wood.
Our decals will not adhere to certain treated hardened plastics.
Clean application surface to remove any dirt, grease, or contaminates. Wash surface with soapy water and let surface dry thoroughly.
NOTE: Do not use Windex, alcohol or ammonia-based cleaners! These products will break down the decal adhesive.
IMPORTANT: Never touch the decal's adhesive side with your fingers.
- Use masking tape to set your decal into position on application surface.
- While decal is hinged upward remove backing paper.
a.) If the decal doesn't release from the wax backing, place back down and gently run over the transparent application tape focusing on the problem areas.
- Allow decal to hinge on to your surface as you flatten it into place.
- Squeegee decal from the center out to the edges using good pressure. Two bank cards (back to back) may be used if a squeegee is not available.
- Slowly lift the application tape making sure decal does not lift off surface. If decal lifts off press back into place and squeegee again.
a.) If the decal is not sticking your surface might not be as clean as it looks.
- If small bubbles remain, place area in direct sunlight for a couple of hours. This will evaporate any trapped air. Make sure this is done BEFORE clear coating over the area.
IMPORTANT: Before applying our decals on a surface treated with lacquer or vanishes of any kind, please make sure they are completely cured and not only dry to the touch, following the clear coat manufacturer's recommendations.
If our decal is sandwiched between layers of uncured clear coating, separation of adhesive will occur rendering the decal useless. We are not responsible for decals used improperly or applied to unsuitable or uncured surfaces.
