Hello everyone. I am wondering if cheap sign vinyl and or pulling the masking off the vinyl directly after applying will contribute to bubbles ? Thank you for any help.
Bubbles are a product of bad application technique. Most often the result of letting the vinyl contact the substrate without being put there by the squeegee. The quality of the vinyl, the timing of removing the mask, or the state of the tides are not factors.
Thanks for the help. I want to buy the Big squeegee. Will the Big squeegee work with cut vinyl with masking transfer?Pay a little more for the air egress vinyl stock. It’ll save you in the long run from reprints and wasting substrate. Also, I’m not sure how you are applying the vinyl but look at using a squeegee. It takes a little getting use to but it works great applying vinyl once you get the hang of it.
Technique...... and technique only. Bad atmospheric conditions or temperament really don't play a part, unless you just wanna blame your own incompetence on someone or something else.
If you're hit or miss deal, then you are not really that good, just lucky sometimes.
I've found that if I spray alcohol on the transfer tape after squeegeeing the transfer tape will come off easier and less likely to see bubbles
I like ya Gino... but if someone says they can lay any non-air release vinyl of any type in any environment and get no bubbles ever... they're lying through their teeth. Incompetence has nothing to do with it. Bubbles happen.. it's just a part of laying vinyl.
