At Screenprint & Display, we know that the beauty of a window sticker lies not just in its design but also in its application. A well-applied sticker can turn heads, draw attention to your brand, or communicate important information. But how do you apply window decals without bubbles?
Before we dive into the steps, remember that patience and careful preparation are key. Rushing the process can lead to mistakes and, yes, those dreaded bubbles.
Step 1: Clean the Surface
Start with a clean, dry window. Any dirt or dust on the surface can cause bubbles to form under the sticker. Use a glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth to ensure a thorough clean.
Step 2: Prepare the Sticker
Peel off the backing paper from the sticker, but be careful not to touch the adhesive side. Our fingers carry oils that can interfere with the adhesive, potentially leading to bubbles.
Step 3: Apply the Sticker
Place the sticker onto the window, starting from one edge and carefully pressing it onto the surface as you go. This technique helps reduce the chance of trapping air underneath.
Step 4: Smooth it Out
After the sticker is on the window, use a squeegee or a credit card to smooth out the sticker and remove any bubbles. Start from the center and move towards the edges. If a bubble forms, you can gently lift the sticker, release the trapped air, and smooth it back down.
Step 5: Review Your Work
Inspect the sticker from both sides of the window. If you see any bubbles, repeat step 4.
