Get a Grip on Your Vinyl

So you've purchased a vinyl or film, a large one at that. And you're getting reading to apply it, but find that you've hit a bit of a roadblock. The film is really wide, wider than expected. You try stretching or maneuvering, trying to find a way to unfold it without creasing it. You grab some tools or whatever is lying around to try holding it down. And it looks like whatever you grabbed is working, only for it to slide or end up not working out right. Clearly this is going to anger you or frustrate you. If by some stroke of bad luck your material gets damaged from your frantic attempt at salvaging the situation you may feel like quitting this project. It happens, everyone has one of those days. 

Now, there's going to be times when you're incapable of getting another pair of hands to help you with a project, or you maybe you just really take the 'yourself' in DIY to heart and want to do your project solo. That's perfectly fine! Everyone has their own prerogative. So when you're working and you hit a point where you find yourself needing someone or something to hold a piece of material steady, in this case vinyl or tint film, you might wish you could grow an extra pair of arms to hold the material steady. As convenient and creepy as that might be, you can't just use any object lying around and potentially end up damaging the material. Common items you might want to use could warp, tear or crumple your material when you're trying to hold it steady, and other brand items may not do the job right or might not be large enough, such items is as follows:

  • Books
  • Tools
  • Weights
  • Bottles
  • Masking tape
  • Clamps
  • Other brand Grippers

Say you're unrolling a vinyl wrap and you reach a point where it's at a length where you want to start applying but the vinyl might slide around, creating an issue. Or maybe it's just super wide. So you look around and grab whatever is nearest to you. You grab a book, but it's not heavy enough or falls from you tugging on the vinyl, you end up with a creased up vinyl. You set one of your work tools on it and they scuff up your vinyl. You try your bottle but the water but the condensation gathering at the bottom stains your vinyl. You try weights but they just aren't doing the right job and can risk damaging something if they took a tumble. Masking tape will indeed hold your media down, but depending on the type of material it's made from you due run the possibility of having the tape rip off part of your material. Especially with film, that will quickly crinkle, tug and crease it up extremely quickly in a matter of seconds, that is a waste of time, material and money. With clamps, you will get your material secured, and then when you release them you'll be greeted with unsightly markings on your material, another dud. There's an endless amount of variables that can happen that can go wrong to bother taking the chance with these items. Do yourself a favor and avoid these!

However it's not all doom and gloom, there's always a way to properly prepare. So what do you use? Maybe you have an old Gripper or might be looking for other brands?
