Start with the long edge. Peel off about an inch of the sticker and lightly fold the paper backing. Apply the sticker right at the edge of the laptop as seen in the picture.
Use a glasses cleaning cloth (or any smooth cloth) to help you apply the sticker without leaving air bubbles. Notice that I am only applying the midsection. This is because the curvature of the surface can influence the alignment of the sticker.
Take extra care towards the end of the sticker. We want the alignment to be perfect right?
Firmly apply the sticker on the sides as the last step.
