7: When your “A” sheet is finished laminating you can then cut out your individual graphics.

8: To apply, separate the “B” transfer film from the “A” sheet. The graphic will transfer over to the “B” film along with all the adhesive from the “A” sheet, this is normal. Now you will be able to firmly apply your graphic to your product. ( Ex: Tumbler, Wine Bottle, Glass, Ect…)

9: When applying your graphic to the product, focus pressure on the graphic only. Application pressure does not need to be applied where there is no graphic. After applying your graphic, carefully start to peel the “B” transfer film off, leaving only the graphic remaining on your product.
