Grey back adhesive vinyl

Grey backed adhesive vinyl is a high-performance vinyl, known for its durability and easy applications. Grey backed vinyl is great for indoor and outdoor use, for general signage, vehicle applications and flat surface applications. Its UV clear coat laminate is a high gloss, clear finish coating for vinyl stickers to help prevent sun fading and lightly increase damage resistance.

How to apply your ABS signage on a window:

Riley started off by cleaning the glass or window first.

Then he proceeded to apply dishwashing liquid solution onto the window followed by the vinyl.

Thereafter they used a squeegee to flatten the surface of the vinyl and to ensure that it sticks properly onto the window.
