Tips for self adhesive vinyl application

Vinyl stickers are a great way to add personality and colour to your home or office. They’re also easy to apply, but you’ll need to ensure that you have the right tools and supplies before starting your project. Read on for tips on how to get started with self adhesive vinyl sticker application:

Clean the wall well before application.

Before you apply any vinyl:

  1. Make sure the wall is clean.
  2. If you’re using vinyl that comes in a roll, cut out a piece of it to practice on before going big.
  3. Have something handy to wipe off excess material and mistakes; soap and water will do the trick just fine if you don’t have to rub alcohol on your hands.

There’s no need for fancy tools like spray bottles or squeegees—use your hands.

Remove any dust or crumbs from the wall’s surface and the sticker.

Remove any dust or crumbs from the wall’s surface and the sticker. Dust and crumbs will leave marks when you remove your new sticker, so cleaning these off is important before applying self adhesive vinyl. You can use a damp cloth to remove dust and crumbs and then dry with a clean cloth. Compressed air also removes dust from surfaces like shelves or cabinets where you might have things stored that haven’t been dusted in a while but be careful not to blow too much into your sticker.

If you’re not experienced at applying vinyl stickers, don’t start with a large one for your first attempt. Stickers that are too big or complicated can be challenging to put on straight and will almost certainly require more time and patience than necessary. Start small with something simple like an easy-to-apply cutout sticker or a small, single-colour logo. You can always add more stickers later if you need to.

Test the fit on the wall first without peeling off the backing.

When you are looking to apply your stickers, it is essential to make sure they fit perfectly before removing the backing. This will ensure that you have an excellent clean application and that your sticker stays on the wall once it is applied.

Unless it’s a simple design, don’t try to apply a complicated vinyl sticker on your own.

If you’re a beginner, don’t try to apply a complicated vinyl sticker on your own. Until you’ve had experience applying vinyl stickers, it’s best to start with something simple, like a small decal for your laptop or tablet.

If you have some experience applying stickers but are still nervous about applying a large one on your own, maybe give it a shot with the help of someone experienced in this area. If they are willing to help you out, that’s great! You can learn from them and build confidence in your abilities as well as theirs.

Use a plastic squeegee or credit card to push out any air bubbles on the sticker.

Use a plastic squeegee or credit card to get rid of air bubbles and ensure that your sticker is fully applied. It’s best to push out any air bubbles before the sticker is completely applied, but it will still work if you do it afterwards.

An excellent way to ensure all the bubbles are gone is by using a credit card, but plastic squeegees are recommended for more delicate surfaces like glass.
