Every new season comes with new ideas to look good when in the field and show team spirit. Players have the chance to try out looks to tie to their uniforms together. In many cases, this usually extends to getting great looks for their helmets and sticking new decals to them always works. One does not need a professional to stick a sticker onto a headgear. You only need to follow easy steps to get softball helmet decals in place.
Make it stick to the helmet. You first have to ensure that you use durable stickers that can withstand athletic impacts. High-quality ones from reputable companies are the only way to go as they are usually thick. They last until the season is over. Cheap ones can be tempting to purchase, but they are low quality and tear and fade off quickly.
Stickers should always be applied on a clean and dry helmet. Ensure that your gear is clean and dry. There should be no grime, dirt, grease, moisture, etc. These materials make the result less effective as the stickers are meant to be stuck on plastics. Cleaning your headgear with soap and water or a clean cloth also brings an edge to it.
Often, teams switch to different helmet colors, and some players are tempted to repaint theirs to avoid the cost of purchasing a new one. This move can sometimes only harm because helmet stickers firmly attach to the paint as they are very sticky. Peeling the sticker off means a huge chunk of paint will come off. This often leaves an ugly look. It is wiser to replace the headgear or get it repainted by a professional to avoid unnecessary mess-ups.
It is common to find unmatched stickers for your particular headgear. There are quick fixes for this. If your label is too large such that the image has to go under the face mask, you need to take off the entire mask and then apply the sticker. If the sticker falls over edges or cracks, you can cut it with a blade to fit the shape and size of your headgear.
When it comes to applying the softball helmet decals, you must peel it slowly to avoid tearing or wrinkling it. Locate the area you want to place it, and lightly place the center of the sticker on the area. If there are wrinkles, pull that area and restick the whole sticker against the headgear again.
It can take time to get your sticker right, but these tips will give you the guidelines you require.
