Vinyl Cutting Tips:
The proper degree blade, the correct downforce, and the right blade depth guarantees quality cuts. Standard blades are 45 degrees. A standard or lower degree blade may not cut thicker materials because the blade gets buried in the material. A steeper, angled blade (60°) is tall enough to cut all the way through thick materials and pivots easier when cutting corners. The quality of the cut depends on the sharpness of the blade and the condition of the teflon strip. A cutter gauge helps you to precisely set the depth of your blade, which will extend your blade life significantly.
Surface Preparation for Blade:
Make sure your substrate is smooth, clean and dry; also free of oils, wax, silicon, and other contaminants. Glass surfaces can be washed with warm soapy water and rinsed with clear water, and then dried. Any leftover residue can affect the bonding of the adhesive. 

Application Tips:
Before removing the application tape, squeegee the vinyl down. Work with small strokes from the middle out and don't be afraid to apply pressure. Next, gently remove the transfer tape by pulling it back along itself. Do not try to pull up at a 90° angle since this tends to "lift" the lettering. If the transfer tape is hard to remove spray a little application fluid on it. Squeegee the vinyl down again, removing trapped air bubbles as you go. Use pressure as you do this. The better the adhesion, the longer the letters will stick. Pop remaining trapped air bubbles with a straight pin, and then squeegee again.
