    Default new template question

    Hi,
    I got the half hexie template & wondered if the backing comes off?
    This may be a non-slip coating but I don't like it & Would prefer a clear template also the template reads backwards
    as if the coating was put on wrong side?

    thanks,Patsy

    Yes, peel it off. It's just to protect the acrylic while it's being cut.

    I was just wondering the same about the new tumbler, hexie and apple core templetes I just purchased. I was afraid I would damage them if I took off the backing, but saw it looked clear when Jenny did her tutorial. By the way I was very impressed at how quickly my purchase came. I love MSQC, wish you all great success with the new store.

    God Bless from Kentucky!!

    Yeah, I think I even saw in one of her tutorials where she takes the paper off a new one!

    Thanks -- I tried loosening it & it didn't budge...will try again--maybe spray with water.
    Thanks again all of you.
