Understanding The Sticker / Decal
The stickers are in three parts:
    1. The top layer is called the Application Tape
    2. The middle layer is the final product
    3. The bottom layer is called the backing paper

Preparation
    :arrow: If your decal arrives in a mailing tube, it is recommended that you unroll the decal and let it lie flat for at least an hour before applying.
    :arrow: Thoroughly clean the surface. The surface you are applying the sticker to, must be clean, dry and free of any dust or residue. (Pure soap, water and a lint free cloth is best.)
    :arrow: Ideally, the surface and air temperature should be 10*C or more. Use a hairdryer to achieve the surface temperature.
    :arrow: Wind will be your worst enemy.
    :arrow: If you have a large sticker, get someone to help you and go through the steps first before applying the sticker.
    :arrow: After preparing surface, check that the sticker fits in place. If necessary, cut of any excess application and backing paper and make guidelines with masking tape or a non-permanent marker.

Application
    :arrow: If you have a large design, you can mix a small amount of pure soap or dish washing liquid with water and spray on surface. This will help manoeuvre the sticker into place.
    :arrow: Carefully remove the backing paper from the sticker. Ensure that no part of the design remains on the backing paper.
    :arrow: Position one edge of the sticker, then it is best to use the hinge method by using masking tape down the centre of the sticker, lift one side over and remove the backing up to where the masking tape is then apply sticker. Repeat with other side.
    :arrow: Slowly roll the sticker onto the surface, rubbing it down with the edge of your hand as you go. Using a credit card or something similar, squeegee from the middle to the outer edges. Use a knife to cut the decal if it goes over any joins (E.G. over two doors)
    :arrow: Slowly remove the application tape, ensuring that the sticker does not lift with the tape. We recommend that you leave the application tape on for 10 - 20 minutes before removing; this will ensure that the decal will adhere to the surface fully.
    :arrow: Air bubbles will usually disappear after a few weeks, if not, you use a pin to puncture the vinyl and squeeze the air out by pushing down with your thumb.
