When applying vinyl lettering, you will want to do so properly so it looks nice and will not need replacing or fixing anytime soon. First, squeegee firmly across the transfer tape at a 45-degree angle with overlapping strokes. You will not have to worry about squeegeeing too hard over it. You can apply as much pressure as you want to get the job done, all you want to do is make sure you keep gliding smoothly over the vinyl. Once you finish, make sure you give it enough time to let it set. If you pull off the transfer tape too quickly, you will risk removing the vinyl lettering or creating bubbles.

In Case of Bubbles

Then, poke only a pin-sized hole and squeeze from the edges of the bubble and towards the puncture.
