Understanding Peel & Stick Puzzle Saver
Before we get started with the application, let's get a better understanding of what Peel & Stick Jigsaw Saver is. This self-adhesive film is usually made of high-quality transparent material that adheres securely to the front surface of the completed puzzle. Its main purpose is to hold all the puzzle pieces together and protect them from damage, allowing you to easily frame and display the puzzle.
For best results, follow the step-by-step instructions below when applying Peel & Stick Jigsaw Saver to a completed jigsaw puzzle:
Prepare your workspace
Find a clean, flat surface to work on. Make sure it is large enough to hold your puzzle and that there are no pieces hanging over the edges.
Lay a soft cloth or felt pad on the surface to protect the puzzle from scratches and dust.
Turning the Puzzle
Carefully flip the completed puzzle onto the soft cloth/mat so that the front (puzzle image) is facing down.
Trimming the puzzle saver
Unfold the peel-and-stick puzzle saver and place it on the back of the puzzle.
Use a pair of sharp scissors to trim the film to fit the exact size of the puzzle.
Peeling off the backing
Gently peel off a few inches of backing from one end of the film. Avoid touching the adhesive surface with your fingers to keep it tacky.
Begin laminating the film
Align the exposed adhesive end of the film with one edge of the back side of the puzzle.
Gradually place the film on the back of the puzzle, blotting as you go to prevent air bubbles.
Peel off the backing little by little while applying the film to the back of the puzzle, smoothing it to avoid creases.
Removing air bubbles
If you notice air bubbles between the jigsaw and the film, gently lift the film and reapply, smoothing it out as you go.
Sealing the Edges
After applying the entire film, press down firmly on the edges to seal them securely.
Trimming excess film
Use scissors or a hobby knife to trim excess film from the edges of the puzzle for a clean surface.
Letting it Set
Allow the puzzle to set for at least 24 hours to ensure the adhesive sets properly.
