Vinyl stickers can stick to any smooth, clean surface you can think of. There aren’t many surfaces off limits. The main surfaces include wood, plastic, glass, and metal. Position it on your computer, on your car, on your wall, or on your window. As long as the surface is flat, vinyl stickers will probably stick to it. We believe vinyl stickers have unlimited creative potential. The vinyl used in stickers shouldn’t stop you from being creative.
When it comes to vinyl stickers there are several different types of vinyl. This predominantly depends on where the vinyl sticker is going to be stuck. They all have different adhesives. That’s a fancy word for glue. Different adhesives mean that some vinyl has a stronger glue which will stick to more surfaces. For example, stronger adhesives are used for vehicles and stickers intended for outside use. Using a stronger adhesive can in some cases result in pulling off your paint. While this is uncommon, it’s always good to check before applying certain vinyls to your surface.
How To Clean Your Chosen Surface
So you’ve found the perfect surface for your vinyl sticker. What now? It’s always a good idea to clean your chosen surface. Remove all the dust, grime and grease in order to make sure the vinyl sticker has the longest possible lifetime. When cleaning the surface you should use a methylated spirit to get the best results. This is the best way to clean the surface. Avoid using a cleaner which contains oil because this will affect how well the sticker sticks.
