At Raptor Graphics, we want your stickers looking its best for the longest possible manner.
We have prepared 5 tips on how to care for your decals / stickers.
Always clean the surface of application before applying your decal / sticker. Removing any dirt & oil. This will ensure maximum adhesion between the decal / sticker and the surface of application.
2. REMOVING BACKING PAPER
Be very slow and careful when removing the backing paper for installation. Turn over the sticker on a flat surface and slowly remove the backing paper if the decal / sticker doesn't adheres well to the transfer tape / paper.
3. CAUTIOUS WITH SHARP EDGES
Be cautious when cleaning your car. You do not want to rub down on the decal / sticker with a dry or wet cloth. This will cause some sharp edges to lift, thus damaging the decal / sticker. We advise manually hand washing your vehicle as mechanical car wash may cause sharp edges to lift.
4. STAY AWAY FROM THE SUN
UV rays from the Sun destroys almost anything if left under it for long periods of time, same goes to decals / stickers. To fully extend the lifespan of the decal / sticker, you may want to keep them out from sunlight as much as possible.
5. REPAINTED SURFACES
If you have repainted your vehicle, do not apply any decal / stickers for 4 - 8 weeks. This may cause the uncured paint to adhere to the decal / sticker and damage your paintwork when removing the decal / sticker. We recommend only apply decals / stickers on original paintwork.
