Q: Should I apply the mylar stickers to inserts AFTER I wax the playfield?
A: I suggest you wax before applying the stickers just because it gives a small layer between the insert and playfield in case you decide you want to remove or replace them in the future—makes it easier to remove. It also protects the insert’s artwork. You can put them on before waxing too, they shouldn’t hurt the insert or playfield if removed in the future, but it’s better to be safe, in my opinion.
Q: Are the stickers permanent?
A: The stickers, if applied correctly, will last many, many years. A lot of people won’t even know you have them on your inserts, they are so thin and transparent.
If you start stacking them because of severe cupping, the stickers might be more noticeable when the machine is turned off. When the insert is lit up, the stickers aren’t noticeable when stacked.
Q. After I apply them, can I still clean and wax the PF at a later date? Will naphtha cause any issues with the mylar stickers?
A: You can treat the Mylar stickers as if they are now part of your playfield. You can wax them, use naphtha (applied first to a rag before wiping), or whatever else you need to do to keep your playfield looking good. If you pour naphtha directly on the playfield, (which I don’t recommend) and not on a rag first, you might have naphtha getting under the sticker which might cause it to unstick (you’d just have to replace with a new sticker). Avoid this by applying the cleaner to a rag first.
