STICKER ESSENTIALS: SQUEEGEES

Stickers are commonly associated with guerilla marketing and have firm roots in DIY culture, so when it comes in installation and application most will tell you a good rubbing with fingers will do the job to get your stickers firmly stuck.

Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. When dealing with stickers that come with application masking (Standard Die-Cut, Kiss-cut) there’s one tool that can be difference between success and failure: a squeegee!

Not only is a squeegee an essential part of our Official DCS Sticker Application process, it also helps eliminate bubbles and comes in handy when applying large-format graphics. The wedge shape of the squeegee allows it to smooth down the masking material & adhesive in a uniform, even fashion. Not only is it superior to a sloppy finger rub, it also trumps the clunky square edge of a credit card.
