|Once cut to size then line up the vinyl on the surface of the project, then peel around 10-15cm of the backing paper from the top of the film. Line up the sheet on the item and stick the top strip to the item.|
|You can then pull the paperback down from the underside while using the squeegee on top to push the vinyl down on the surface. If you come across any bubbles just push them out with the squeegee to the closest side.|
|If the project has curves or bends you can use heat from a heatgun to soften the vinyl and you can then stretch the film around the curve. Do an overlap behind the object if possible to keep it secure. When possible do a test with a cut off of the vinyl so you have practice before doing the larger item.|
|As these are thicker than normal vinyls we recommend using an adhesive promoter like 3M 94 Primer on all edges, bends and recesses to secure the vinyl for a longer lifespan. This primer should be available from your local 3M distributor or online from a local supplier.|

What is your return policy?
It is always best to order a sample if you are unsure of the colour before ordering a large amount. Samples are available on the product pages.
You may return unopened items within 7 days of delivery for a refund. We'll only pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).
As our Vinyl's are cut to order we deduct a 20% re-stocking fee of the value of the returned item unless the item is damaged or defective.
What size should I order?
Well this is tricky to answer, there are so many different applications so every project varies. The best advice we have for you is to allow an extra 10cm on each side, especially if you doing an overlap on the back of the door or table.
Also always try to simplify it, for example on a kitchen break down each cabinet door into category's, 4 large doors, 8 small doors, 8 drawers etc. Then you can work out how many doors you can fit in each meter (3.3ft) of wrap.
Also be aware when ordering a wrap with a grain in it you will need the grain to run along the same way on all doors, this may effect your measurements.
And if you are really unsure then just send us a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and our experts can advise what you would need to order.
What type of surfaces can I apply your vinyls to?
Once the surface is a smooth and clean the wrap will stick to it so the limitations are endless. PVC, Laminates, MDF, Metals, Plastics, Painted Walls, Tiles and much more.
Can an adhesive Primer be used with the Vinyl?
As this vinyl is thicker than most films an adhesive promoter can be used to secure the vinyl in areas where there might be tension or on the edges. Most of our customers use 3M 94 Primer which you can apply to these areas in a thin line of coating and it drys in a few seconds. This will bond the vinyl more securely. Unfortunately we cannot ship this as we only ship by air and it is flammable liquid but it should be widely available in your country online.

This is a good quality item that I used to cover my kitchen worktop surfaces. I'm very happy with the outcome, it looks great and other people have complimented it.
However I found doing this quite tricky as a beginner, especially because I wasn't able to remove the sink/worktop hob beforehand, which would have simplified things considerably. Because of that I made some mistakes and there are some imperfections and patches in the finished work. Even so, it still looks great. I'd consider getting a professional in, or doing it without the sink/hob, to get a properly finished job next time.
