Default new paint wish's for decals-how long

How long should I wait for the paint to cure so I can slap some black bird stripes on my hood?

My paint manufacturer say to wait at least 24 hours for applying decals. When I painted my car I waited for 2 weeks or so before I put on my anniversary stripes. It wont hurt anything to wait if you want to, but I do reccomend checking with the paint company to see what they say.

If it's been buffed you should be just fine.
