Hop into Spring with TransferRite Clear Application Tapes

Wednesday April 6, 2022

With Spring underway, we’re getting lots of April showers here at ABI Tape Headquarters in Moorestown, New Jersey. The showers, however, have brought the flowers and that has inspired us to get crafty with our favorite crystal clear application tape! There couldn’t be an easier way to make your Easter holiday crafts than vinyl decal transfers done with TransferRite application tapes.

The TransferRite 1300 series is a family of clear transfer tapes that are great for all kinds of applications. Our low tack 1301 works well with digital prints and partial vehicle wraps, while our medium tack 1310 is a general purpose workhorse for any installation where you can benefit from the clear property of the tape. 1310 is also available with a 1″ preprinted grid pattern to aid with alignment, for those jobs that need extra precision. Our high tack 1320 is great at grabbing onto tiny shapes and lettering, simplifying even the most difficult transfers.

Today we chose 1310 so we could easily align our multi-color decal application. See the steps it took below to create this fun Easter craft with TransferRite application tape and reach out to one of our Territory Managers with any questions.

Step 1: Determine which type of application tape is the right fit for your project. TransferRite 1310 is a workhorse that is the perfect choice for most multi-color installations.

Step 2: Once you have masked your decal with the application tape, firmly squeegee from center out, flip it over and peel up the liner to smoothly release your graphic.

Step 3: Accurately align your decal to your surface. Being able to see through our transfer film is a clear advantage.

Step 4: Firmly squeegee the vinyl down to your surface. Working from the center out helps to avoid trapping air bubbles.

Step 5: Once the vinyl has been squeegeed, gently peel the transfer tape over itself at a 180° angle.

Step 6: Peel back the liner of your second color graphic. (We love all the bright colors that Oracal 651 has to offer!)

Step 7: Align your second color graphic easily through the crystal clear transfer tape.

Step 8: Repeat step 5, pulling back the application tape over itself to smoothly release your graphic.

Step 9: Voilà! Just like that, you’ve done a multi-color installation in mere minutes!
