Application of Vinyl to Substrates
Posted by: KerrTexas (---.stx.res.rr.com)

To all the experienced folks out there, I have just started in the Vinyl Sign making realm and live in the middle of nowhere, so I have no one to call upon to show me in person what to do.

I have been using training tapes, CD's, books, etc...

I am using FDC UltraCal 3.2 mil calendered vinyl, and I am getting "alot" of airbubbles. The letters look like they got stung by a bee and had an allergic reaction. No matter how I have tried, every practice sign has the same result, these little bumps keep showing up and I have no idea what I am doing wrong.

I have used different type of application tools, different tack application tape, with the same results.

The substrate material doesnt matter, the bubbles still show up.

Any advice on how to get the letters down without those bubbles would be extremely welcomed.
