Use an adhesive Webdecal when your back window is tinted and there is a wiper present. A static cling Webdecal cannot be used in this instance unless you do not use your wiper (and that means NEVER) or there is room to place your decal out of the swipe area of the wiper blade.
An adhesive webdecal is made of individual letters cut from solid white vinyl. Don't worry, they are not shipped to you or applied individually. In fact, application is easy because you get to wet the glass with soapy water. See application instructions below.
2. Number of lines
Like our static cling Webdecal, you may choose up to 6 lines of text with a maximum of 36 letters per line.
Larger adhesive decals are shipped in more than 1 piece to make application easier. You can expect to get a maximum of 2 lines of the larger size letters on one piece of application tape. 3 lines of text are occasionally shipped together on one piece of tape for smaller size letters.
Again, like the static cling Webdecals, there are 4 letter sizes from which to choose. These letter sizes may be all the same for the entire decal or may be mixed sizes.
NOTE: These application instructions will accompany your order.
An adhesive webdecal consists of individually cut white vinyl letters which is shipped to you on a strip of 'transfer' tape similar to masking tape. You will not have to apply each letter separately.
Do not remove the letters from the tape they are on. Please follow these directions carefully for best results.
1) Lay decal on flat surface, tape side up. Using the flat side of the plastic squeegee that came with your decal, apply firm pressure from the center out to the edges to remove bubbles and wrinkles from the tape. Work the squeegee in all four directions.
2) Clean the application surface thoroughly with a commercial window cleaner.
3) Flip graphic over on a flat surface so the taped side with the letters is
facing down. Starting at either top corner, slowly peel off the blue backing
by folding it back over itself at a 180-degree angle.
4) Once the liner backing is removed from the taped letters, spray a fine mist of water to the adhesive side of the taped vinyl lettering.
5) “Float” lettering into place on the window surface making sure it is straight and centered on window. You can use your defroster wires as a guide.
6) Use the squeegee again and apply firm pressure from the center out to the edges to remove water, bubbles and wrinkles from under the vinyl. Work the squeegee in all four directions to remove as much water a possible.
7) Wait 5 minutes to allow vinyl to adhere to the glass.
8) Firmly squeegee a second time to permanently fix the vinyl.
9) Carefully remove the application tape by folding it back over itself at a 180-degree angle from the top right corner.
(Note: If tape does not come off the vinyl lettering easily, spray the tape with water and wait for 1 minute. This should release the tape from the vinyl letters.)
10) It may be necessary to squeegee the vinyl lettering one last time after removal of the application tape. Hold a piece of used liner backing over the vinyl and apply firm squeegee pressure.
Do not use your windshield wiper to for at least 72 hours after application. These instructions will be included with your order. Applying these decals is easier than it might sound like from these instructions.
