VINYL STICKER APPLICATION
INSTRUCTIONS AND TIPS
1. CLEAN SURFACE
Throughly clean your non-porous surface (like a laptop case, water bottle, or phone case, mirror, etc) with rubbing alcohol or a lens wipe to remove all oil, dust, and dirt. Let surface completely dry! Skipping this step will make it much harder for the adhesive to properly stick and cure!
2. APPLY STICKER
Peel the backing off the sticker carefully and place the sticky side onto your clean surface. From the center of the circle, firmly press from the center out to the edges to push out any bubbles and create a good seal. Some slightly textured surfaces need extra attention, so pay attetion to the edges of your sticker and press the everliving bejesus out of them if they pop up and most of the time they should seal and cure!
Let the sticker sit on the surface for at least 24 hours before getting it wet. This allows the adhesive to properly cure to the surface and helps your sticker last longer!
TIPS TO MAKE YOUR STICKER LAST AS LONG AS POSSIBLE!
P&P stickers are excellent on surfaces that need to be washed, like water bottles and tumblers! However, our stickers are water resistant meaning they aren't completely waterproof. If you need to wash the area your sticker lives on just grab a soft sponge or brush and gently wash it by hand with cold to warm water (not hot!) and mild dish soap. Quickly dry the surface gently and your sticker will last much longer!
Thanks to the UV laminate we apply to our stickers they're scratch resistant and very durable! They can also be placed in areas exposed to temporary sunlight and heat, but we want to let you know these hot, sunny areas will fade the color and degrade the adhesive more quickly than less exposed surfaces. We know this is all personal preference and wanted to let you know that less exposure=longer sticker lifetime!
PLACEMENTS TO AVOID
We recommend avoiding sharp or multiple curves on surfaces. For example, wrapping stickers around the corner of a metal box or placing a sticker near the tapering of a tumbler for a cup holder. These types of multiple-curves don't allow the adhesive to make proper seals and generally lead to those areas peeling up. According to our tests, our stickers should retain a majority of their color over 5-6 months in full sun exposure if you're considering putting our stickers on your car. After that, only time will tell!
