Yup. That's pretty much how it's done. However, the devil is in the details. First rule of vinyl application... MEASURE TWICE, stick once. Also, it's a good idea to use a squeegee when you first apply the vinyl. You want to reduce the chance of any air bubbles as you apply the vinyl. Using your hand can provide uneven pressure. You want a good plastic straight edge with nice, firm, slow pressure. If you do get a bubble or two, stick the bubble with a needle to release the air. Then carefully press the bubble lightly. Really tiny bubbles will go away on there own as the vinyl wants to lay flat on it's own. Be careful once you remove the backing. The adhesive vinyl is VERY tacky. If it sticks to something you don't want it to, it may not come off in a re-useable fashion. And finally, take your time. I always like to say, It's easy to apply vinyl, but it's even easier to mess it up.
