Tip& Tricks

Installation Conditions & Storage


● Vinyl is best applied and stored in a cool, dry environment.The ideal temperature for applying vinyl is 72°degrees Fahrenheit/ 22 Celsius

● Applying vinyl in extreme temperatures can cause it to tear or bond too quickly. Storing vinyl in humid or hot environments can damage the film.

● It is best to apply vinyl indoors, as this will help maintain a consistent temperature and reduce the amount of dust and contaminants.

● When storing vinyl after using the product, make sure the material is tightly wound around the core.




    Cleaning Products & Tools

    ● Grease and wax remover
    ● General Paint-safe Cleaner
    ● Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA)
    ● Water
    ● Microfiber Car Cleaning Towelor Lint-Free Paper Towel
    ● Squeegee
    ● Sharp Blade
    ● Heat Gun
    ● Gloves


      Cleaning and surface prep

      1. Clean the surface. Use a paint-safe grease and wax remover to remove any dirt, grime, oil, or wax. Rinse the surface with water.

      2. Dry the surface thoroughly. Use a lint-free towel or paper towel to dry the surface. Pay attention to ridges, edges, and seams.

      3. Make sure the surface is completely dry. If necessary, use a blow dryer or heat gun to speed up the process.

      4. Apply the film as soon as possible. This will help reduce the amount of dust and contaminants that may accumulate on the surface over time.

        ● Wrapping gloves
        ● Masking tape
        ● Tape measure
        ● Infrared thermometer (optional)


        Plan your application.


        ● Decide which areas you want to wrap first. Flat surfaces are easier to wrap than curved surfaces.

        ● Remove any objects that will be covered by the wrap.

        ● Measure the area you will be wrapping and cut the vinyl to size, leaving extra material(at least 4-6 inches) on all sides.


          Apply the vinyl.


          ● With the help of a friend, carefully remove the backing paper and apply the vinyl to the surface.

          ● Use a squeegee to smooth out any air bubbles.

          ● If there are any wrinkles in the vinyl, use a heat gun to shrink the film and pop the bubbles.


            Trim the excess.


            ● Once the vinyl is applied, use a utility knife to trim off any excess material.
            Here are some additional tips:

            ● Use a clean, lint-free cloth to apply the vinyl.

            ● If you get any air bubbles, use a heat gun to shrink the film and pop the bubbles.

            ● Be patient and take your time. Applying vinyl can be a delicate process, but it's worth it to get a professional-looking finish.

            ● Identify the center of the panel visually. This will serve as your initial point.

            ● Apply the film using moderate pressure on your squeegee, while pushing out any trapped air from underneath, starting from the middle and working outward. With each stroke, ensure that it overlaps the previous one, guaranteeing the removal of all air from the area.

            ● Utilizing felt or an edge buffer can help minimize damage during installation when exerting pressure. Insufficient pressure can lead to trapped air behind the film. To determine if the correct pressure is applied, use a heat gun on an installed surface. If bubbles appear, increase the pressure.
