CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR ITEMS WITH VINYL APPLIED
I get asked often about the vinyl I use. I use a high quality professional vinyl with life durability of 5 years if cared for properly.
- If you have purchased a water bottle, glass, mug, beer glasses, wine glass and so on these instructions are for you.
- These items are handwash only. (Although I have heard of people putting these products in their dishwasher I cannot guarantee that they will last due to the heat and water pressure)
- Wash promptly, do not SOAK!
- Do not scrub.
- Do not put in the microwave, oven or dishwasher.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLOTHING
- Turn inside out and machine wash in cold water
- DO NOT USE BLEACH!
- Hang drying is the best method, but if you would like to use the dryer promptly remove the garment from the dryer after half drying on the lowest possible setting and then continue to dry via hanging
- If you need to iron your product please follow instructions as per your garment recommendations
- Do not overheat or apply a direct iron to the design area
HOW TO APPLY YOUR VINYL DECAL
If ordering just a decal so you can apply it on your own here are some easy directions to follow.
- Make sure the area that you are applying vinyl to is clean and free of any oil from your skin. (I highly recommend cleaning it with rubbing alcohol and allowing it to dry.)
- Burnish (rub) the vinyl decal and transfer paper with a squeegie (or popsicle stick or credit/ID card) to ensure vinyl is on transfer paper and there are no air bubbles.
- Remove the paper backing (it will be marked) and stick vinyl to area carefully. (Once it’s down it’s difficult to remove and could possibly ruin the decal).
- Burnish (rub) the transfer tape and vinyl again. (This is to remove air bubbles & to adhere to the area. This is a very important step)
- Carefully and SLOWLY remove the transfer tape from a corner and peel on a 45 degree angle.
- If the vinyl does not release immediately, push that area of transfer tape back down and rub it again.
- Please given your vinyl decal a minimum of 3 days to “cure” or adhere to your product prior to washing it.
