Frequently Asked Questions

Decor FilmHow do I get rid of bubbles?
Using soapy water when you stick it on, bubbles can be pushed out with a squeegee, or lift the film and restick.

Does it come off?
Start with a window scraper, then remove any residue with turps.

What are the blotches under the film just after sticking it on the glass?
The blotches  are the reaction of the glue with the water.

These will disappear within a few days or it may take longer in a cold damp room. The warmer and dryer the room the quicker the water will evaporate from behind the film. You can use a dehumidifier to speed it up.

It is a special kind of glue which sets over a longer period of time.   The film needs to dry before it sticks.
