Writing or drawing on the Film
Always check suitability of white board marker pens on an offcut of film.
Surface Preparation: Walls, plastered surfaces
For the film to adhere properly, the painted wall should be smooth, flat, dust free and free of imperfections. The film will not adhere to a bare plaster finish unless painted or varnished first.
Surface Preparation: Painted surfaces
Surface Preparation: Laminates, metal surface, wood.
Laminates, like kitchen door coverings for example will require a thorough clean with soapy water to remove any greasy cooking deposits.
Bare, untreated metal surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any oily deposit.
Wooden surfaces should be lightly varnished for best results.
Applying the Stickers
Cut the material to the required size, unless you have ordered the material made to measure.
For small pieces, just remove the protective liner to expose the adhesive side, line up and apply the sticker to the surface. Once you are satisfied with the position, smooth the sticker firmly onto the surface using the felt edge tool supplied with your order.
For larger pieces, peel back and fold down 4" (10cm) off the top of the backing paper to expose the adhesive side. Apply and line up the top of the film to the surface . Once you are satisfied with the position, peel off the rest of the backing paper from behind the film in stages, and smooth down as you go along using the felt edge tool supplied with your order. Once the whole of the film has been applied, go back over the whole thing using more pressure.
If any trimming is required, just use a retractable knife and trim the excess material. Just be careful as the material is quite thick. Use a straight edge like a metal ruler if necessary.
