I have heard you can use a little window cleaner. Spary it onto the area you want the sticker/decal then position and rub out the bubbles and let dry.

Just a way I read about don't know if it works

Window cleaner (Windex) I have heard of some people submerging the plastic in water and applying the stickers but I have never tried that. Sounds like either way will work as the stickers just need a little lubrication as you move them around. If you happen to get a sticker on criooked, just use a hair dryer or heat gun to soften up the decals and you can gently pull them off without distortion. Good luck!

What Dude said Keeto said windex is the hot tip or soapy water and a squeege. We put our company stickers on our truck that way works great move them around til your hearts content then use the squeege to get the moisture out and let them dry. Wha la you have perfect stickers

jmorris56 hit the nail on the head. I always use windex on the surface first which allows you to remove the sticker and reposition it. Once you are statisfied, rub it down to get all the air bubbles out. I use an artist rubber roller that works great. Then I heat it a hairdryer to make the glue reallyl sticky and then roll it again.

Dont forget to clean the surface with alcohol first and let dry before applying stickers.

Man I wish I would have known about this windex trick A LONG time ago. When it comes to my bike and me putting stickers on it I want EVERYONE of them to be PERFECT..I will have a sticker maybe 2 inches long X 3 inches tall or something and I will spend 20 minutes moving it around before I ever stick it down...because once it stuck down its done,over with. I will try Windex next time
