How To Apply Rear Window Graphics

You Will Need

  • - Soap & water to clean the window
  • - A soft, clean, lint-free cotton cloth
  • - A new, sharp razor for trimming to size
  • - Masking tape
  • - Felt-wrapped squeegee

1. Prepare the Surface

Clean the window using soapy water and then thoroughly rinse.  Be sure the window is completely free from any remaining soap residue.

Warning: Do not use any chemical based window cleaers as this may react negatively witht he adhesive.

2. Position

Before removing backing material, unroll the graphic and select the position on the window. Use masking tape along the top edge to temporarily hold the graphic in the desired position. If applying to a split window, cut the graphic where the windows divide.

2. Apply

Once desired placement is selected, carefully begin removing the backing material.  While pealing away backing material, gently smooth the film against the window using a felt-wrapped squeegee. If air bubbles form during this process, gently lift the material and reapply while smoothing the bubble area.

(If your window curves from left to right, then start from the middle and work your way to each side.  If your window is curved from top to bottom, then start from the middle and work your way up and then down.)

WARNING: Do not stretch the material.  This will cause the product to curl and lift from the window after it is installed.

4. Trim

Carefully trim with the razor blade the excess material around the perimeter of the window trim.
