EASY DECAL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Ducks Military Frames and Stickers
Sticker / Decal application is simple (Read all the instructions prior to application)
First you have to determine what type of decal you have. Does your decal have two layers, with the decal on top and paper on the bottom. Or does you decal have three layers with application tape, which is an extra layer of tape, on the top with sides exceed the width of the original decal?
In addition, the application tape appears as an extra layer over the decal itself that causes the decal colors not to be as vibrant as they should be AND there is always a sticker on it telling you to remove the tape. This tape should be removed AFTER the end of the application and decal sets up.
Step 1 - Clean the area that you want to place the decal. (Wet or dry application)
Step 1.5 – Wet application...You can apply the decals wet or dry. The wet application gives you the advantage to adjust the decal a little after it is applied. To do this you add two drops of dish soap to a quart of water in a sprayer and VERY lightly mist the area you cleaned prior to applying the decal then do the remaining steps.
Step 2 - Peel the last paper layer from the decal exposing the sticky side.
Step 3 - Carefully apply the decal.
Step 4 - Rub out any bubbles with a credit card or flat plastic object. We laminate all of our decals, so expect only a few bubbles.
Step 5 – If your decal has application tape, slowly remove it after the decal sets. The set time for dry application three to five minutes, wet application twenty to thirty minutes.
If, while removing the application tape, some of the decal begins to come up with the tape, just lay it down, rub it again with your plastic card and then try again in the same spot or another spot.
