Storage for Unapplied Graphics

Clean the dry area.

  • Away from direct sunlight, excessive atmospheric moisture, or humidity.

  • Ambient temperatures less than 100°F (38°C) and relative humidity is less than 80%.

Handling for Applied Graphics

Remove Premask Tape Before Exposing Graphic to sunlight.

  • Always remove any premask or application tape from the graphic immediately after application.

  • Premask tape left on the graphic after application can quickly and permanently adhere to the graphic when exposed to sunlight.

Graphic Installation

We can install decals into the desired item within the same business day.

  • Except when conditions are not desirable for decal installation, we might reschedule you for an appointment.

  • However, after the business day of purchase, we are unable to help you with the installation, due to uncertainty of decal purchase location and decal storage care.

(Unless, a representative told you otherwise, but to be valid the decal must remain in Alef By Cordoba's possession.)

Cleaning Applied Graphics

Wash once a week

  • Use a gentle automotive detergent, we recommend using Glass Cleaner to clean near and at the graphic area.

  • Use a soft sponge or s clean, soft cloth to wash your wrap.

  • Rinse the vehicle with clear water after washing.

  • Minimize water spotting.

  • Dry with a clean microfiber cloth.

Power Washing Graphics

  • Power washing, or pressure washing, may be used.

  • However, aggressive washing can damage the graphic.

  • Excessive pressure during power washing can damage the graphic by forcing water underneath the graphic.

  • Water lessens the adhesion of the graphic to the substrate allowing the graphic to lift or curl.

Automated Car Wash

  • The brushes used at most automated car washes might scratch, lift, and even peel the graphic.

Products to Avoid Using

  • Solvents

  • Oil-based Cleaners

  • Kitchen/Bathroom Cleaners

  • Alcohol-based Cleaners (Applies Mainly to Stickers)
