Customize a Golf Club

If you are looking for a unique, inexpensive way to customize your golf clubs, adding a cool sticker is one of the easiest ways to do it.  This instructable shows you how to add a sticker to a Titleist Vokey wedge.

You will need:

golf clubs (wedges are easiest)
4"x3" piece of adhesive vinyl (LIZZIS CUSTOMS, LLC - via eBay)
91% isopropyl alcohol (available at drug stores, Walmart, etc.)
very sharp razor blade (available at home improvement stores)
heat gun (optional)

Step 1: Clean the Club

1. Get a bottle of 91% isopropyl alcohol and clean the back of the wedge to remove dirt, oil and grease.

Step 2: Cut out a rectangle

Cut out a 4” x 3” rectangle from a sheet of adhesive vinyl.  I got a "Stickerbombed" design for about $5.00 from Lizzi’s Customs LLC on eBay.  It is a quality 3M Scotchcal film which holds up nicely to UV rays and weather, and is also easy to apply.  Most importantly, it really holds up on the golf course.

Step 3: Apply the Film

Apply the film to the back of the wedge and smooth it out.  It is easiest to apply it to the flat part of the wedge (the flange) and work it up to the sole.

Step 4: Trim

Trim the excess film from around the club using a very sharp razor blade.

Step 5: Repeat

Now you can do all your wedges, plus your irons, and have a pretty rad set.  You can also stickerbomb a fairway wood, as shown.

Step 6: Add Some Heat

For best results, use a heat gun on each wedge for a minute or so to really get the adhesive to stick.  Let it cure overnight and it will be ready for action the next day.  If you don’t have a heat gun, a hair dryer will work.  Or you can leave them in your car on a sunny day for a while.

Enjoy!

careful with this. if one of the stickers peels even the slightest, you are in violation of the rules of golf.
