How to install Math & Movement Stickers

So you have just purchased your first Math & Movement stickers and are super excited about sticking them to your hallway floors, desktops, classroom doors, stair risers or anywhere else you can fit them!

Follow these simple tips to make sticker installation easy and fun for all involved.

Floor Prep

Clean the floor prior to installation using the following steps:

Step 1: Sweep the area, and then mop with water and dawn dish soap.

Step 2: Let dry for 30-60 minutes.

Step 3: Then, apply denatured alcohol with a clean mop.

Installation Process

Only install vinyl stickers on clean, dry surfaces using the steps above.

Recommended: Squeegee 

4 Inch Vinyl Squeegee (included in stair riser orders and some sensory hallway orders). Makes installing Math & Movement stickers easy by smoothing vinyl and removing air bubbles.

Step 1: Unroll your vinyl stickers and allow them to lay flat for 24-48 hours prior to installing

Step 2: Align the sticker in desired location and position

Step 3: Peel the backing of the sticker 3″ to 6″ and firmly press the exposed sticker to the floor (Note: Make sure the sticker does not shift during this process)

Step 4: Pull the sticker over top of itself leaving the first 3″ to 6″ adhered to the floor

Step 5: Peel the backing completely off

Step 6: Using a squeegee, hold the sticker vertically from the ground and push the squeegee along the sticker while keeping tension on the sticker

Complete!

Note: Any small bubbles can easily be worked out or pricked with a pin to release the air underneath. Mats are intended to be permanent and not re-positional. 

Please only install vinyl stickers on clean, dry surfaces

Frequently Asked Questions

Please note that there are a lot of factors that go into the longevity of your stickers. At this time, it is hard for us to offer a guarantee because of the numerous factors that go into play with installing and maintaining the stickers, i.e, surface prep, and cleaning variables.

We use top-tier sticker material (3M) and laminate to protect the stickers. However, we also recommend applying water-based wax layers over the stickers after they have been applied. The wax will help protect the stickers from foot traffic, and cleaners (however, please note that we recommend mopping the stickers by hand with soap and water). We do not recommend using a floor scrubber or other automated floor cleaning machine as this may damage the stickers.

Also, before applying the wax please test it with the sample pieces we have included in your order. It is important to make sure the wax does not affect the stickers. Multiple wax layers will protect the stickers, however, we still do not recommend using harsh chemicals, or striping the floors where the stickers are installed.

Waxing over the stickers with a water-based wax can help encapsulate the sticker and protect it from foot traffic.

We recommend using water-based wax over your stickers after you have installed them. However, please test the wax with a few sample pieces before applying it to the floor stickers. 

We recommend following the cleaning and install tips provided. If the area is not properly cleaned the sticker can not properly adhere to the floor. If the floor is wet then the sticker also has a hard time adhering to the floor.  

We recommend hand cleaning the stickers for best results. School cleaning riders may damage the stickers color. However, it should not affect the adhesiveness.
