2.Using the masking tape to underline where you want to place the vinyl sign.
If you have letters that drop below the line, remove tape in that area.
3.With you spray bottle, mix a solution of 20 drops of Joy, Ivory, etc in one
pint of water. Carefully spray the soapy water on the area where you want to
place the vinyl.
4.Place the Graphics face down and peel away the waxed paper backing. Then
spray the solution on the back of the vinyl sign. Be sure the Graphics is
adhering to the application tape (premask).
5.While the area is still very wet, place the Graphics in the selected
position. The soapy water allows you to slide Graphics into place. Gently rub
palm over Graphics. (The water has no bearing on the adhesion; it is only for
positioning the Graphics and removing the air bubbles.)
6.Use the an squeegee ( credit card )to squeeze the water out from under the
Graphics. Squeegee in all directions and repeat several times. This process
removes air & water from under the Graphics.
7.Let the Graphics dry completely. The amount of time needed to dry depends on
the temperature and the humidity. Estimated time: 80 degrees - 30 minutes, 70
degrees - 3 hours, 50 degrees - 4 to 6 hours. These are recommendations
ONLY….the Graphics MUST dry prior to the next step. 60 - 70 - 80 degrees are
recommended temperatures for post installation.
8. Slowly peel back the pre-mask translucent application tape; the Graphics
will adhere to the boat. If the Graphics don't adhere to the boat, you didn't
wait long enough for the water to dry behind the Graphics; repeat squeegee
process. LET DRY.
9. Now check for any bubbles. If you find any, place a small piece of pre-mask
tape over the area; squeeze to the closest edge. If you still have a small
bubble you can pop it with a pin. Small bubbles will eventually disappear from
the sun over
