What happens after I place my order?
This entry was posted on May 4, 2014.
You should get a proof within one business day sent to your email address of record. If you have not received a proof within two business days, please check your SPAM folder, and then please email us and inquire.
After you see the proof, you can ask for changes, or you can approve printing. You must specifically approve printing (see next paragraph). Responding with "I like it" is not enough for us to print.
After we send a proof, if we don't hear from you for about 7 days, we will print and ship. We have gone to this procedure because a number of folks email after a few weeks demanding to know if their order has shipped.
After printing is approved, we add you to the print queue. We print and ship at least every other day, often every day.
You will receive an email with a tracking number when your order ships. If two-three days go by after you give shipping approval, and you don't see shipping notice in your inbox or spam folder, please follow up with an email.
How do I apply them once they arrive?
We have a detailed, step-by-step decal application guide!
Do I have to have the blue squeegee?
No, but it helps. You can use a credit card to apply the decals. The negative to the credit card is that it is hard so does not flex well, and can have a bit of sharp edge. It can want to dig into the vinyl instead of sliding, while the Squeegee is softer and likes to slide.
The squeegee is also easier to grasp. For $2, you won't be sorry you got it and you are getting a deal with us because we want you to buy it and have a good experience. Try to buy the same squeegee for less than $4 anywhere else!
Do you recommend Mod Podge to protect the decals?
Yes we do recommend Mod Podge to seal and protect the decals, and we have a detailed Mod Podge application guide. So far, we have not had anyone report issues with their decals who followed the application guide and sealed with Mod Podge.
We ship quickly, and we know from our own experience that getting to the store during the week can be really difficult. So we have starting selling Mod Podge and brush so that you have everything you need the moment the decals arrive.
