There are two ways to apply these,
the “dry method” for which these are primarily meant, and the
traditional “wet method”.
The former must be done on a clean dry surface, free of oil and
dust. Hold the transfer in place with a couple of pieces of tape and
gently rub on the carrier film with a blunt instrument. Use just
enough pressure to allow the transfer to separate from the backing
sheet. Cover the removed transfer with the backing paper and gently
burnish it onto its final position.
The wet method involves rubbing the selected item onto clear decal
film. From there it can be soaked off and applied in the usual
manner. This procedure can be useful where the surface onto which
the decal is to be applied to is not flat.
Normal setting solutions can be used but naturally this is best done
The same applies to any clear coats that you wish to apply. These
are essential to protect the decals from handling.
Archer’s transfers allow you to put
markings on your vehicle without the risk of “silvering”.
Application is easy and with plenty of numbers to choose from,
individuality of your subject is only a packet away.
