Default Waxing with Racing Stripes

I have some racing stripes from Baltime Street Mods (3M Glossy Decals not Matte). It's getting about time to wash/wax my car since I've first put them on and I'm wondering...

Will waxing on top of them make them fade or just leave nasty smudges? I guess I should avoid waxing on top of them?

Thanks in advance for the advice...

If you go to the web sit it says: "do not wash the car for a week: hand wash after 1 week. HAND WAX after 1 month. NEVER use a rotary/electric buffer on graphics. Avoid using oil/petroleum based products on graphics. Use orange cleaner to clean graphics when necessary." http://www.baltimorestreetmods.com/install.htm

Not that you asked about this but as I've seen with other peoples attempts to wax a car with graphics...

They always get a white line of wax between the paint and the graphics and then just leave it.

I trust you are aware of this dilemma? If not, hopefully you are now.
