HT Jimmy Janlén at Crisp for the pull-down method.


  1. Pull notes ACROSS not UP/DOWN when removing from the stack; This will remove almost any chance of coil, and as a result they will always stick properly (glue quality notwithstanding)

      A sharp pull down is the best way I know to keep them super flat, not coiling and staying on the wall (see the diagram above). Across is second best in my opinion.
