How to Properly Apply Your Vinyl Labels

Vinyl Label Application

One of the problems some people have with their vinyl labels is not in the designing of such labels, nor is it in the ordering but rather in the application. This is quite understandable since a lot of people do find the task of applying these labels to their items rather daunting. The reason why this is so is because of the possibility of bubbles and wrinkles appearing upon application. Another thing that people may find themselves worrying about is if these stickers will adhere to the surface it is attached to easily without it falling off.

While sticking these labels to flat surfaces, and even on curved surfaces, perfectly may seem rather intimidating to some, others find that they can do this with ease, as long as they follow certain steps to ensure that these stickers are applied without any warping or bubbles forming. You can also ensure that these labels stick to the surface you are applying it to by following these tips we are about to give you.

To ensure that your vinyl labels and stickers do adhere to any surface that it is attached to, whether these are curved or flat, you need to make sure that the surface the sticker is to be applied to is clean. Make sure that there are no dust particles, no grease or grime on the surface so these decals will stick perfectly to the surface you are attaching it to. Also, make sure that the surface you are applying the label on is non-porous or it won’t stick at all.

The next thing you need to decide on is whether to apply the decal via the wet method or the dry method. We will be teaching you how to apply your decal using the wet method. For this, you will need a sprayer bottle or a sponge and a solution made with one cup water and a few drops of liquid detergent. Remove the backing material from your label and spray a little of this solution on the sticky side of the decal. You can also opt to dab the area with this liquid solution before applying the decal if you would rather not spray the solution on the back of the sticker.

Position your label properly over the area, moving it carefully into place until you get it placed where it should be (this is easy to do with a smooth surface and the wet method). Press down with your fingers so it will adhere to the surface. With the help of the edge of a credit card, slowly work out the bubbles and wrinkles from the decal by pushing these gently yet firmly outwards, until you have a flat label adhering to the surface. Once you are sure that you have applied your decal perfectly, slowly peel off the application paper.
