Tips for Applying Windshield Banners
- Do not apply in too cold (polar vortex or anything under 50 degrees is not ideal, so apply in garage or wait for a warm day in winter), too hot (the vinyl will get really soft and may stretch too much when applying), or too windy conditions (debris can get onto the vinyl or it can blow and stick to itself, so set up a wind block or move inside).
- Only clean your windshield with 70% isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol or plain water before applying banner. If you want to use soapy water for wet application, choose a dish soap like Dawn. We have done both wet and standard dry application for the banners with success.
- Unroll the banner and measure it to your vehicle, tape in place, and double check that it covers all the areas you want. Sit inside the car and check the level the banner would be while driving. Tip for those wanting super-low banners: buy two and layer them to fit your needs.
