Types of decals- vinyl or mylar

Vinyl Decals
 
The vinyl decals on this website are printed on high performance material which is especially suited for outdoor applications.  Our vinyl decals are "cut out" or "die cut" and sandwiched between backing paper and application tape.  When applied, these "cut out" decals leave no clear plastic film between the individual letters giving your restoration project the best possible finish.

Mylar Decals

The mylar decals on this website are printed on a clear plastic film which is also suited for outdoor applications.  When applied, mylar decals have clear film betwen the letters and around the edges and represent a more economical choice for your restoration project.
 

Decal Application Instructions


Prepare the Surface

The surface on which the decals are to be applied should have all pitted areas filled.  It should be sanded smooth and painted.  Wash the surface on which the decals will be applied with soap and water, especially a newly painted surface.

Mylar Decal Application

Peel the backing paper from the decal.  Align the decal on the surface and carefully squeegee the decal onto the surface starting in one corner and progressing to the opposite corner.   Warm soapy water can be applied to the surface prior to decal application to help adjust the decal once applied.

Vinyl Decal Application

Peel the backing paper from the decal.  The decal will adhere to the application tape.  Align the decal on the surface using the decal (not the application tape) and carefully squeegee the decal onto the surface starting in one corner and progressing to the opposite corner.  Starting at one corner, slowly remove the application tape.  The decal will remain on the surface to which it’s applied.  Warm soapy water can be applied to the surface prior to decal application to help adjust the decal once applied.

Do not use warm soapy water with chrome decals.
