  8. Carefully remove backing, to reveal vinyl on Transfer Tape. Note sticky side of the vinyl is now facing you. The Transfer Tape is a bit tacky like Painters Tape – don’t worry it won’t stick to your project. Place sticky side down onto your project; rub gently to remove vinyl words onto your project.
