Default Finally installed my stickers

I'd like to mention that the transfer tape was nearly useless. It took me 10 mins to get the letters onto the transfer tape from the vinyl cutout on each small decal, they just liked to stick where they were rather than peel off and stick to the transfer tape. Anyways, with patience I got everything installed without too many issues. I ended up moving the ".net" up on the windshield so it wasn't directly in my line of sight.

I had a buddy help me. This is the 3rd windshield banner I've installed and it still took about an hour. The trick is lots of patience and a spray bottle of water. We also cut the letters out individually so they would curve with the windshield.

wtf are you talking about?
You peel the back of the sticker off, stick it in place, peel the transfer tape off and then peel off the area of the sticker around the cut letters.
there shouldn't be any peeling off and sticking to the transfer tape.

Hm, that's not how I've been told to do it by sign shops. I've always peeled off the transfer tape, and normally the decal sticks to the transfer tape, so you can just stick on the decal and pull the tape off.

no, I used low tack transfer tape and it works better the other way around.

and people wonder why I don't do this anymore.

usually the sign shops will weed the letters and the negative space... but i guess the other way works too.
