How to apply a 78” vinyl decal so it’s level

Recommended Posts

How do you guys apply a long decal (oracal 651) to a wall and make sure it’s level?  Basically once I stick part of it to the wall there’s no peeling it off to reapply.  What are some tips/tricks to doing this?

Once leveled and taped at the top to hold it in place using blue painters tape.  You can place a long piece of painters tape across the top to form a hinge, then cut up between the letters to apply them individually. 

Or if you have a graphic like in example #2 use a vertical hinge, peel the backing back to the blue tape and cut it off, then apply that half of the decal. remove the blue tape hinge peel the backing off of the second half and apply the other half of the decal.
