Apple Pencil 2
NOTE: The RulerWrap was designed with the Apple Pencil 2nd generation in mind, however it can be applied to a wide variety of devices. This guide shows the installation process for a Apple Pencil Gen 2, but the same process can be applied to other devices.
If applying the RulerWrap to the Apple Pencil Gen 1, you may want to consider trimming the ends of the wrap to allow some room, but then again the choice is yours as it can still fit without any cuts being made.
When applying on the Apple Pencil Gen 2, we prefer the edges of the RulerWrap to terminate before the edges of the flat surface begin. The wrap will not fully wrap around the stylus and it was purposely designed this way to avoid accidental overlapping of the wrap and messy installations.
Step 1 - Clean
Clean your stylus with a small amount of rubbing alcohol or water to remove any surface oils left from your hands. A small amount will not harm your device and it will help ensure the wrap adheres properly. It can also help to wash and dry your hands prior to installing as well.
Step 2 - Peel
Peel back one corner of the wrap and proceed to peel and fold the wrap's backing along the length of the wrap. Take your time here and do not touch the sticky side of the wrap.
Step 3 - Line 'em up
Visually line up both corners of the wrap slightly below the flat edge of the Apple Pencil. With both corners lined up correctly (but not touching yet), lightly stick one corner of the wrap so that it can still be pivoted without stretching it. Then lightly stick the second exposed corner, also slightly below the edge of the pencil.
TIP: Ensuring that the profile of the RulerWrap is not higher than the top of the flat edge of the Apple Pencil 2 will minimize the wrap's edges catching on things after installation.
Press the sticker with a downward pressure, slowly pressing along the length of the wrap in sections as you curl around the stylus. Disperse your finger pressure as much as possible to avoid stretching or deforming the wrap.
As you loop around your stylus, keep an eye out for air pockets and gently push them out as you go. You can also try rolling your stylus over a flat surface to stick the wrap evenly, while periodically pausing the roll to check for air pockets.
Once you've fully adhered the wrap to the stylus, do one final inspection of the wrap and ensure all air pockets are gone. We like to give one more pass on all corners and edges to ensure adhesion is optimal in areas that may experience the most friction.
And you're done, great job! Now enjoy your convenient measuring device and let us know how it is.
