Is there an easier way to put vinyl on glass?If you dry stick it you get bubbles.If you do it wet then it don't want to stick at all.Whats the deal?

I use to do everything wet. glass, wood, metal, etc... Now that I have learned some better techniques I do everything dry unless I'm layering.... try to HINGE your decal on the car b4 you stick it dry...... dont just lay it up there and squeege.

How long have you been applying vinyl???

Actually, it applies alot easier to glass better than most other substrates.

Try applying it to aluminum if you want to see bubbles........ :lol2

h@te to sound like a broken record but hinging is my favorite way. you can work it from top to bottom wet or dry and I get better results than just trying to wet the glass and decal and just laying it up there.

you're obviously not doing the dry install correctly

Hmm?Not hearing no explainations of the correct way to do either.If I thought I was doing it right I wouldn't be asking.

actually if you read the posts you heard it twice. hinging the vinyl wet or dry is the way to do it.

align the decal where's it's going, use some tape or premask and place it in the center and on one side to hold the design in place. hold the vinyl up off the glass or whatever, remove the backing to the hinge (tape). use a hard card or whatever you prefer to lay the vinyl down working from the hinge towards the edge of the design. then repeat on the other side.
