FAQ: How To Apply Motorbike Decals?

Can you use Windex to apply decals?

Spray the adhesive side of the decal with Windex after or as you peel away the backing paper. Use the squeegee to squeeze out all the Windex and air bubbles from underneath the decal. Wipe away the excess Windex and let the decals take a set. This is key, and it’s a good time to walk away from the car.

Can you put stickers on a motorcycle?

Yes make your bike more personal. It’s cool to add stickers of things you like. It’s your bike do what you like:) A P/O put a thousand stupid stickers on my motorcycle.

What can I put decals on?

You can put stickers on almost anything — laptops, picture frames, mirrors, binders, notebooks, and more.

Do you need decal setting solution?

No, you don’t NEED decal softener ( setting solution ) but I wouldn’t recommend going without it. The surface the decal goes on has to be smooth. Not necessarily glossy, but smooth. Gloss coats or gloss paints tend to go on more smoothly than flat paints, however.

How do you put on decals without bubbles?

Add a little soapy water to the adhesive side of the sticker. This might sound counter-productive, but trust us, it works and is a common practice employed by professional sign fitters. To do this, fill a bowl with some tepid water, add a few drops of washing up liquid, and whisk the water to create a few bubbles.
