Once cut, use a weeding tool to remove all the negative pieces of vinyl from the design. Apply Transfer tape over the design, and use the scraper tool to ensure good contact. Slowly and carefully remove the transfer tape, which in turn will lift the vinyl away from the carrier sheet, once the adhesive vinyl design is free of the carrier sheet, place on to the crate and then apply.

Use the scraper tool once more to ensure good contact between the adhesive vinyl and the surface of the crate, then carefully and slowly begin to peel away the transfer tape.
