If you spend significant time building LEGO models, and if you’re reading this I assume you do, you know the headache placing LEGO stickers can cause. Well, I might have the solution for you!
Updated 3/5/18. Please see below!
There’s a lot that can go wrong. You can get oil on the bricks from your fingers causing the LEGO stickers to not stick as well as they should. You can place them crooked, and when you try lift it and fix, you can mar the sticker. The sticker can stick to your finger instead of the LEGO, and ruin your perfect placement!
I think using hobby tweezers like this might do the trick. Thank you to peterlmorris for the tip! I just ordered a set on Amazon, and I’ll let you know how they work out.
How do you make sure you have proper LEGO sticker placement when you build?
3/5/18 – I just read a suggestion on another LEGO blog that spraying the brick with window cleaner beforehand will allow you to reposition the sticker. You then need to let the solution dry, or press out any liquid and bubbles. I’ll have to give this a try I my next build. I imagine it works better on bigger stickers.
