This is my first ever instructional video and ‘Herbie’s Hot Tip’ uploaded on this blog, shot whilst on a job before Christmas 2013. No preps, no props or planning! It’s also, well ‘was’, a trade-secret to me and a technique which I’ve used to great effect on nearly every installation of vinyl graphics on windows or glass. When applying any type of adhesive vinyl, optimum results are achieved dependant on how well you prep and clean the surface. This simple hand-held scraper and stanley-blade cuts through the dirt, grime and paint-specks like nothing else. A cloth or squeegee aren’t as effective. This saves time, gives the best results and it’s easy for a bubble and crease-free install.
Check out the video and let me know in the comments section if it helped you. To any professional window cleaners reading, no hard feelings(!) Also, if this is the first time you’ve heard me spit my northern accent, or seen me on cam, ‘it is what it is’.
