When you purchase your sign we will also send you a teflon squeegee to help in the installation. In addition to this you will need a small bottle of isopropyl alchohol and clean cloth to prepare the window, a pair of scissors and some masking tape.
Clean the window where the sign will go with isopropyl alcohol. Recommended by the vinyl manufacturer, it really cleans the surface and dries very rapidly to allow for an immediate application of the sign. If you choose to use another cleaner, please let it thoroughly dry.
Place the sign how you want it on the glass and tape it into place top and bottom as shown in the following pictures
Use the teflon squeegee and lightly go over the carrier paper (the semi-transparent film over the front of the sign vinyl).
Removing the carrier paper and wax paper that sandwich the sign vinyl.
Peel back the carrier paper from one side of the sign as shown below.
Easy does it!
You will notice the sign vinyl comes up with the carrier paper. If the vinyl sticks to the wax paper, lay the carrier paper back over just enough to cover this part of the vinyl, and gently use the teflon squeegee on the carrier paper side to get the vinyl to stick to the carrier paper rather than the wax paper, and then recommence peeling the carrier paper.
When you get to the half way point - roughly where you placed the tape - cut and remove the exposed wax paper as below.
In the picture below the wax paper on the left side has been removed and the left side of the sign is laying over the right side of the sign.
Now Lay the carrier paper on to the window glass. The sign is going on to the glass, so apply the carrier paper evenly to minimize bubbles and wrinkles as below.
Smoothing as you go....
Repeat this process on the other side of the sign.
peel until the wax paper can be removed.
Then lay this right side onto the window glass.
Then use the teflon squeegee gently smooth out the carrier paper. This will ensure the sign vinyl is properly adhering to the window glass.
Finally, peel the carrier paper from the glass to reveal your new sign!
