Decal Flip & Stick Install

Get Right To It

Flip & Stick Method

This method is best done with two people. Position the decal in the desired location on the court, then remove the backing and carefully lay the decal into its spot. Once aligned, press the decal into the floor so it will stick in place. This approach allows for a secure placement and a clean finish, all while being easy and straightforward to execute.

*Note: Prior to installation, make sure that the court has been cleaned and is dust free. 3MTM recommends cleaning the floor with isopropyl alcohol prior to installation, but using a standard alcohol-based sports floor cleaner will work as well.

Step 1 - Finding Measurements

Find the placement of the decal and mark that placement on the court with painters tape.

Step 2 - Find Decal Placement

Arrange the decal alignment to the painters tape and determine positioning.

Step 3 - Remove Backing

Flip the decal over and remove the backing.

Step 4 - Position Decal

Flip the decal back over and position it on the court using the tape guides for alignment. This is easier with two people. As long as you do not press the decal down to the court, the decal will remain re-positionable.

Step 5 - Stick Decal

Use the squeegee to gently press the decal to the floor by evenly working the squeegee across the decal. Move in a single direction so that air is pushed out from under the decal as you go. Make sure no areas are missed.

Step 6 - Remove Mask

Carefully remove the masking by slowly peeling the mask back against itself, keeping it low to the ground. Watch for any areas that are lifting and have not been squeegeed well to the floor. Re-squeegee any areas that may lift.

Bubbles can be removed by pressing down on the bubbles with your finger until they are no longer there.

Step 7 - Check Placement

Check the placement of your decal and remove the painters tape from the floor. Your decal is now ready to play on.
