I always drag mine at a 45 degree angle, I always find the other way you risk the chance of bunching the vinyl if laying it down wet

The exception is lettering in the Maternity Ward, then it's 'push, push, push'

sorry :oops:

also, watch your kerning on that lettering, you can't trust computer-kerning.

I actually push most of the time - with just the occasional pull! Don't tell me after all these years I've been doing it wrong!!!

Question 2 is - what to do with a felt squeegee. These produce less friction - so what methods are favoured use with these :P

I put the felt squeegee in the bin, tape a piece of velvet to a nylon squeegee and then I pull the squeegee across the vinyl.
Does that answer your question Phill ?

him and that bloody lump of velvet :wink: are you gonna show us a pic mate

Right enough of this!, I use the felt squeegee in exactly the same way as the plastic. Only NOT on graphics with tape on, kind of defeats the purpose of the felt squeegee
