    Default Inlay sticker application

    Just received some of the inlay stickers from (Jocomo)? If you all have used these what did you prep or clean with before application? Alcohol? Any tips?

    I used tweezers to help center the sticker. I did not prep the fret board prior to application and all worked out well. They have stayed in place, 100% problem free!

    Thanks Tim. I was a little hesitant because all the instructions are in Japanese. I might use a little alcohol to remove hand oil.

    I believe I used 0000 steel wool in the fretboard before applying. Alcohol should work just fine.

    Applied diamond cut fret markers on my KoAlanas yesterday. Didn't do any prep and they're holding just fine. Look good too.

    Use 100% isopropyl alcohol, NOT rubbing alcohol (which leaves more behind it than it removes).
    Use a Q-tip to clean a small area where the sticker will be and wipe up immediately after. You want to remove surface oils and grime, not allow it to soak into the wood.
    Wait a couple of seconds so the alcohol can evaporate before applying the sticker.

    Jeesh, from what they are getting for those things I wish I hadn't sold my equipment. I used to own sign shop. We used to do graphics on commercial trucks, signs, and logo and graphic design. I retired, and sold all my decal cutting plotters. I designed and cut these types of decals and decorated my son's guitar years ago. Everyone used to rave on how cool his guitar looked. I just never thought about that as a thing to catch on. Jeesh, if I only knew.. lol
