Vinyl Decals

Yes! A clear coat will help to smooth out your vinyl decals and will seal them into the rocket. It will help keep them from being damaged or the edges from peeling when handled often. Clear coat like you would anything – adding several thin layers is best. For better finish, sand lightly between coats. As with any paint or clear coat, it’s best to test first to make sure things are compatible. Just ask, and we’d be happy to send a piece of scrap with your order to test with!

No problem, we can do those too! Printed decals are printed versions of any color or combination of colors, halftones, etc. We can print from most any file type and scale it as needed. Printed decals are a little more expensive if you only need one, but they look great and again, last a lifetime. Printed decals are also awesome if you need a club logo or anything like that. Printing small decals in larger numbers is actually cheaper! So contact us if you need a club logo or something similar!

Installing Vinyl decals is pretty easy, But it make take a  little  to get used to how they apply. they are different then a lot of other types of decals. I HIGHLY recommend you watch the videos below , they have some GREAT tips tricks and methods.

CUT DECALS: Your decal will come with a backing (just like any peel and stick decal) and an application tape laid over it. The application tape (or backing tape) holds the decal together as one piece for easy installation. It also allows you to use a brandishing tool (such as a bondo spreader or even a credit card) to squeeze the decal down and work out bubbles without touching the decal. Once satisfied, the backing tape peels off to expose your new decal. Any questions PLEASE dont hesitate to contact me!

HOW TO INSTALL STANDARD CUT  VINYL  DECALS

THIS VIDEO IS A MUST WATCH TO APPLY ALMOST ALL CUT VINYL DECALS AND  MOST FULL COLOR PRINTED DECALS

THE TAPE HINGE METHOD SHOWN WORKS FANTASTIC TO ALIGN DECALS BEFORE YOU INSTALL THEM.. YOU CAN STAND BACK AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE ALIGNED CORRECT  BEFORE YOU  INSTALL THEM! ESPECIALLY when installing Stripes and  Partial TUBE wraps.

 IMPORTANT NOTE..Please read:  They mention application spray..     this is for decals APPROXIMATELY 1/2″   or larger.   smaller decals application spray will make them  harder to  apply. SO do them the same but DRY!  (like  small lettering   and small details)  the spray is to allow things to  move until fully  pressed on.  you can BUY  spray.  I like “RAPID TAC”  which is available in small bottles  from most sign supply places. and ebay   OR you can use a windex type bottle full of warm water and a few drops of dish soap.  just enough to get some suds… this will work fine   in most all cases!  YOU CAN apply  any decal DRY  but  alignment becomes  much more critical. and you  will get more bubbles (you can pop them with a  sharp exacto etc   and most small ones will go away  in time!

Having Trouble removing the backing?? Tips to make it easy!  This can be very common (especially when you have  two or more LAYERS of cut vinyl.. )

HOW TO INSTALL FULL COLOR PRINTED WRAPS

PRINTED WRAPS:   Please watch the videos  below for the BEST way to apply these.  THESE Techniques work very well for   anything printed on AIR RELEASE vinyl  if you are not sure..  feel the bottom layer  the backing will have texture to it. (if  the BACK of the decal says ORACAL 651 it is NOT air release..  air release   will PROBABLY say ORAJET with NO numbers)

HOW TO APPLY A CUT VINYL  WRAP This HINGE method will make it a snap to  get it straight the first time!
