Clean Your Surface 

Crafting can be messy — unfortunately, all this dust, dirt, debris, and crafting crumbs can get stuck in your adhesive vinyl causing peeling. By cleaning your crafting table with a spray or rubbing alcohol, you can remove many of these contaminants, including oil that resides in your hands, giving your vinyl a cleaner surface to be handled! 

Use Heat To Help Dry Adhesive 

If your adhesive vinyl just does not seem to be sticking, you can use a hairdryer or heat gun on the adhesive surface to help it bond to its desired location. After application, make sure to use a squeegee to remove any air bubbles. 

Leave the Transfer Tape on the Vinyl 

Ensure you are using high-quality transfer tape when working with adhesive vinyl, leaving it on for ten to 20 minutes for a stronger bond between the adhesive and the surface. 

Use a Clear Coat of Paint 

After all these steps have been completed and your vinyl still is having issues sticking, try to use a clear coat of paint over top. An uneven surface may be the cause of your crafting issues, but this clear coat will smooth out any rough spots while also adding a glossy finish!
