Pasting stickers on jars can be a fun and easy way to add a personal touch to your homemade creations. However, bubbles can easily form under the sticker, making the final product look unprofessional. Fortunately, there are a few simple techniques you can use to ensure that your stickers are applied smoothly and bubble-free.
The first step in applying stickers to jars is to clean the surface of the jar thoroughly. Any dust or debris on the jar can cause bubbles to form under the sticker, so it’s important to make sure the surface is completely clean. Use mild soap and warm water to clean the jar, and then dry it completely before applying the sticker.
When you are ready to apply the sticker, carefully peel it off of the backing and place it onto the jar. Starting from the center of the sticker, use your fingers or a squeegee to smooth out any bubbles towards the edges of the sticker. This will push out any air that may be trapped underneath.
Another method to avoid bubbles is by cutting the sticker backing into small sections, then applying one section at a time, smoothing out the bubble as you go.
Another tip to avoid bubbles is to apply the sticker to a warm jar. The heat from the jar will make the adhesive on the sticker more pliable, making it easier to smooth out any bubbles.
Finally, if bubbles persist, you can use a pin to gently prick them, allowing the trapped air to escape. Do it gently as you don’t want to tear the sticker.
In conclusion, applying stickers to jars can be a great way to add a personal touch to your homemade creations. By following these simple techniques, you can ensure that your stickers are applied smoothly and bubble-free. Remember to always start with a clean surface, measure and cut the sticker to the right size, smooth out bubbles towards the edges, use a small section to apply the sticker, use a warm jar, and finally use a pin to gently prick the bubbles that persist. With a little care and patience, your jars will look professional and polished.
