Step 5: Prepare Vinyl for Transfering

Once the vinyl is fully weeded, place the transfer paper over the sticker, and smooth it with the squeegee.
I use &quot;magnetic vent covers&quot; sold at Lowes, look in the aisle with the air filters and air vents.<br> <br><br> <br><a href="http://www.lowes.com/pd_73204-34146-AMAGCOV815_0__?productId=3260659&Ntt=vent+cover&pl=1&currentURL=%2Fpl__0__s%3FNtt%3Dvent%2Bcover&facetInfo=" rel="nofollow">http://www.lowes.com/pd_73204-34146-AMAGCOV815_0__?productId=3260659&amp;Ntt=vent+cover&amp;pl=1&amp;currentURL=%2Fpl__0__s%3FNtt%3Dvent%2Bcover&amp;facetInfo=</a>
Why do you have to wet the magnet? the bumper sticker has an adhesive backing. <br>
Wetting the magnetic material with glass cleaner accomplished two things: It gives you a moment or two to reposition the sticker and also allows you to easily squeegee out the bubbles. If you put the sticker down &quot;dry&quot;, ya gotta do it right the first time - a skill I have yet to master :-)
I did this awhile back and both of the ones I made were stolen within a day. Must have been too political.
Places that make signs for businesses usually have the flex magnet material. Sometimes they sell their non-white material at a discount.
thanks for the great idea!
Genius! Also really liking the AT&T one.
