Installation Instructions for CCC Vinyl Colorfill C5 Flag Decals

Read the instructions completely to be sure that you understand them fully before starting the installation. If you have never installed Vinyl Graphics before, we strongly recommend that you consider having them professionally installed.

Materials needed:

Vinyl Decals – supplied
Isopropyl alcohol - from drug store
White paper towels: - plain without any color

Emblem Preparation: Before applying the lettering, make sure that the surface of the emblem is clean and free from dirt, grease or any kind of oils. It is a good idea to wipe it down with isopropyl alcohol, paying extra attention to the recessed area where the lettering will go. You should also wash your hands to remove all body oil.

Applying the decal: The graphic consists of three layers. The top layer is the Application Tape, which supports the graphic during installation. Next is the Vinyl Graphic itself, which has a pressure sensitive adhesive on the back, and the back layer is the backing paper, which protects the adhesive until you apply the graphic.

The decals on the sheet look like the head of an arrow. With the point of the arrow pointing to the right, the top decal is for the left side of the emblem and the bottom decal is for the right side. Cut the two decals apart with a scissor.

Remove the backing paper from the decal. Be sure not to let the sticky side of the vinyl touch anything, or itself. If you do, the vinyl will be unable to be used. Do not touch the backside of the decal with your fingers. It will hurt the adhesion of the lettering. Do not remove the application tape from the decal yet.

Holding the decal taut, but not stretched, by the ends of the application tape, hold it in place above where you want it to go, and get it aligned the way you want it. Be sure not to allow the vinyl to touch the surface of the emblem, or it will stick and you won't be able to remove or reposition it.

Once you are satisfied with the alignment, you can press the vinyl down onto the emblem starting from the center and working out towards the edges. Keep in mind that once you press it down, you will not be able to move or remove it without destroying it.

Press it down well, paying special attention to the edges. Use your fingernail to press the edges into the groove around the edge of the emblem. Be sure to press the edges down well.

Remove the application tape by peeling it back at a severe angle (180 degrees is best). If the edges of the decal are not adhered well, it may be difficult to peel back the application tape without pulling up the decal also.

Press it down again after the tape has been removed.

Tiny bubbles are not a problem, they will disappear in time, but larger bubbles must be pierced with a pin or needle to allow air to escape. After piercing them, use your fingers to work the trapped air towards the hole and press down the bubble.

Press the decal down one more time.
