How to Remove Vinyl & Stickers from Vehicles

Removing stickers & vinyl from a vehicles paintwork can sometimes be difficult and if it is not undertaken correctly damage can easily be inflicted. The key to removing stickers & vinyl safely and effectively is to first apply heat which softens the adhesive beneath and makes the vinyl itself softer and more soft.

A hair dryer should be used instead of a heat gun as a heat gun can get too hot which could result in the paint being lifted off from the surface along with the vinyl. First the edges and corners of the vinyl or sticker should be heated up. Hold the hairdryer about two inches away from the surface and keep it moving instead of holding it in one spot.You can visit http://www.stick-off.com/ to remove vinyl & stickers from vehicles.

Once the edges and corners have been adequately heated up you should be able to pull them up nice and easily. You should use something that will not scratch or damage the paintwork in any way for this, a plastic ice scraper with some tape attached to protect the paint, or a blunt knife with a micro fiber towel wrapped around it would work well.

Once a corner or edge has has been pulled up you should carefully continue to pull away the sticker trying to follow the shape of it to prevent it from tearing and having to rewarm and start again.
