I cut all of my own vinyl from a KNK Zing. {I have provided my SVG file and a PDF file, to download for free, at the bottom of this post.} Here is how to apply sticky vinyl apposed to rub-on vinyl.

Place scotch tape on the top of your transfer tape.

Tape on wall/door. I use a level along the words/image to make sure it is completely level.

Once level flip the vinyl up, being careful not to un-tape from the wall, and remove the paper backing.

Slowly bring down the transfer tape.

Press in the center of the image first. Then slowly side your hand along vinyl to one side and then the other. This will make sure no bubbles or creases get folded into the vinyl. Press firmly along all of the vinyl.

Remove transfer tape by beginning to lift away from vinyl on bottom corner. Slowly move at an angle. Make sure all vinyl is stuck to the wall as you go. Pay extra attention to the dotted i’s or small pieces of vinyl.

Once transfer tape is removed press firmly along all the vinyl making sure that it is stuck well everywhere.
