Decals just won't stick
« on: March 11, 2012, 12:35:23 PM »
Cleaned the surface good with wax remover and the little pillar birds just will not come off of the top clear paper.  THe bigger decals had no issues but these little guys just will not separate, I need to call PG tomm and see if they will replace them.

I put the decal in place with gel...press out the gel/bubbles...let sit for an hour or so...and use a small pull area of the paper (if it doesn't separate, try another pull area on the paper (use a very low angle of pull).
It does help if the paper is slightly damp.

If you have no luck, they may very well be defective but I haven't run across any yet that wouldn't separate

I have tried every pull area I can and it won't release ;(

Called PG, they will replace the birds for free, after I send them the bad ones, which I find pretty stupid.

I could understand if it was a high value part, but a sticker?  probably about 5 bucks in material cost.

So I sent them my decals as they requested and have heard nothing for 2 weeks.  I guess I have to call.  Their custer service sucks.  They were supposed to send me two new eagles.  I guess since it was a small order I don't matter.

I am having the exact same problems with stripes from PG.  I got a bad feeling this isn't going to end well.
