If you are not installing your vinyl lettering or graphic immediately, store it in the box it came in, in a cool, dry place. Keep out of direct sunlight.
All oils, oxides, grime, and wax must be removed before applying the lettering or graphic. 3M Adhesive cleaner, acetone, or denatured alcohol is recommended. You must remove all wax, grime, grease, and oil from the area where your decal is to be applied.

Also, pressure sensitive adhesive vinyl will not adhere to a surface where cleaning products containing silicone have been used.
