Ensure that the surface is smooth for optimal end-result (textured or mottled surfaces may show up behind the tile stickers and may affect the tractability of the stickers).
For optimal tact, ensure the surface is dust and grease-free. Surfaces can be cleaned with a weak dishwashing liquid solution or alcohol cleaning solution before installation.
Some painted surfaces (for e.g. chalk paint, water-resistant paints and oil-based painted surfaces) may resist the sticker; RSW cannot be held liable for any surface preparation. Vinyl does not adhere to silicone.
Installing Wall Tile Stickers
Separate the backing paper at the top end and fold back. Line up your sticker to position (you can also use masking tape to secure its position).
Re-check the position of the sticker and start by sticking down the exposed top strip.
Now pull the backing paper down with your one hand while rubbing a squeegee with your other hand to stick down the vinyl onto the surface (you can also just use your hand or anything flat, but ensure that it does not have a hard surface as this may scratch the vinyl).
Work outwards to ensure a bubble-free application. Use a pin to prick out air bubbles and rub it out.
PLEASE NOTE: ensure that corners are stuck down properly from the beginning to prevent corners from lifting at a later stage. Once dust gets in, your sticker will not stick down. Some tiles are slightly bevelled and you may have to cut the sticker down in size by using a projecting blade. Should a corner not stick onto a bevelled edge, dampen the area and secure sticker down with masking tape. Allow to dry for about 2 hours and slowly remove the masking tape.
Caring For Your Stickers
Although vinyl is suitable for kitchen and bathroom environment use, ensure that this surface is not exposed to repeated direct steamy areas and wipe dry with a soft cloth when wet; corners of sticker may lift after prolonged and repetitive exposure to water.
Keep the area dry. Prevent hot oil spills behind splashbacks and wipe down lightly with damp cloth; in the worst-case scenario, use only mild soap solution. Only soft damp cloth to wipe clean.
