Hints or Tips On Laying Down 1220mm Wide Application Tape

Post by Wallchimp123 » Mon Jan 15, 2018 12:24 pm

Do any of you have any neat ways of laying down 1220mm wide application tape (Clear or Paper) onto cut vinyl.

I have tried a few methods but still trying to find one that I am able to do by myself as neatly as possible.

Any hints or tips would be most appreciated.

Also, do you recommend using clear or paper application tape?
Personally I find the paper tape easier to lay down onto cut vinyl, but find it much harder to roll up for posting out in postal tubes.
Also when re-rolled back out, the paper never looks that presentable.
I am very interested to know what you guys are doing.

Many thanks,

I would love one but cannot justify one at this stage.

Still having to revert to a manual method.

That's exactly the opposite. I have several one-person shops who have bought this machine for this exact reason. It would multiply the production speed and minimize waste and wrinkled media, which is a byproduct of 100% manual work.
