How do you remove bubbles from car stickers?

What’s the best way to remove bubbles from car stickers? I put some bumper stickers on my car the other day, and I’m just now noticing that there are a bunch of bubbles in them.

Bumper stickers are a great way to personalize your car without making any major changes! Unfortunately, little bubbles can get caught underneath the stickers, making them look a little unprofessional. But you can always follow these steps to remove the bubbles:
  • First, stick the tip of a razor blade (or a similar sharp object, like a pin or a boxcutter) into the bubble.
  • Using your finger or a credit card, squeeze the air out of the bubble.
  • If you have a big bubble, slice the edge of it and flatten the sticker by rolling a credit card from the uncut side towards the cut.
  • Be careful not to scratch the paint beneath the sticker.
If you followed those steps, then your stickers should be bubble-free! Next time you’re applying stickers, try removing one half of the backing at a time and applying each side with care.
