How do I apply a vinyl decal on a car window?
I’d like to add a few vinyl decals to my car window, but I’m worried about keeping them straight. What should I do to apply a vinyl decal on a car window so it looks great?
Applying vinyl decals to your car window can give your ride a unique look, but placement is integral. To put a vinyl decal on a car window, you’ll need painter’s or masking tape, a squeegee, window cleaner, and some patience.
Once you’ve gathered all of these items, follow these steps to apply your vinyl decal:
- Clean the area with the window cleaner and dry it with a microfiber cloth.
- Put the vinyl decal where you want it, and tape the top of the sticker to the window. Do not remove the liner yet.
- Use a level to ensure it’s straight.
- Slowly remove the backing.
- Use the squeegee to slowly push the sticker onto the window from top to bottom, taking care to avoid leaving bubbles.
And that’s all there is to it!
