Has any one got any tips please. I have inflated my 24inch deco bubble, I put my vinyl on to personalise, but when I peel my transfer tape off, it marks my balloon! I have tried taking the tac off my transfer tape so its less sticky, but this isnt working. Any ideas?? Thanks


ANSWER

Hi Lauren,

I came across this video from Chris Adamo and thought it might help.

It's mostly about how to ensure that the text or image you put on the deco bubble is centralized, using a simple device made of cardboard, but he also talks about applying the vinyl.



For example, around 3 minutes into the video he says he uses "very low tac" transfer tape to avoid causing damage to the balloon.

Starting at about 7:30 minutes you can watch how he applies the vinyl characters. You can see how he very gently pushes down on the characters only, and tries to avoid pushing the rest of the transfer paper onto the deco bubble.

Hope that helps!
