Top Tips For Using Our Peel & Stick Curb Stencil Decal:

This is an easy weekend project! Follow our instructions and helpful tips for successful and stylish results.

1. Proper adhesion is key!

For best results, the curb must be free of all debris, dirt, and organic material. A dry scrub brush works really well for this. Your curb needs to be completely clean and dry before you begin.

2. Don't rush. Let the paint dry.

If you're planning on a background behind the address numbers, spray the area with the spray paint of your choosing. Then allow the paint to dry completely before applying the stencil. If you move forward too quickly, some of the paint could come up when removing the stencil.

3. Avoid overspray.

Mask off the area all around the stencil to avoid unwanted overspray.

4.  Check for adhesion around the edges of the numbers.

To avoid excessive bleeding of paint behind the stencil, rub the stencil firmly with your fingers near all the edges to check for any areas that are loose. Due to imperfections in the curb surface, it's normal to get some paint bleed, but this can be reduced by making sure the stencil is firmly adhered to before you spray.

5. Let the paint dry.

Resist the temptation to peel off the stencil too soon. Allow the paint to dry completely before slowly removing the stencil.
