How To Apply A Decal To A Flat Surface (Wood, Acrylic, Mirror, Poster Board etc)

Applying your decal to a flat surface in order to make your own signage is easy! Take a look at my tutorial here:


Or the written instructions below...

Step 1: 

Make sure your suface is as smooth as possible, clean and free of any dust.

Step 2: 

Decide where you want to put your decal. If you want, you can measure out the area and make sure it is centred by using tape or a light pencil to mark it out, just be sure you won't damage your surface by doing this. 

Step 3: 

Flip the decal over and rub the back with a credit card or vinyl applicator. Peel the paper away from the tape, pushing down any vinyl that comes up with it. 

Step 4: 

Place the decal where you want it to go and then smooth down once you're happy with the placement. 

Step 5: 

Rub it with your credit card/scraper again and then peel the tape off, pushing down any letters that come up with it. You may need to go really slowly at this point and be quite patient

Step 6: 

Repeat the same steps with all of your vinyl sections if applicable, make sure they're all definitely smoothed and stuck down and then you're done!
