Do your wrists hurt after long print jobs? There’s a fix for that. Meet the new, exclusive, EZ Grip Squeegee from Lee Stuart. It’s got everything printers love about the original EZ Grip Squeegee, but with a sleek black finish to elevate your shop and make screen printing that much easier.
WHY THE EZ GRIP SQUEEGEE WORKS
When Lee Stuart first started printing, he was a pusher. Years of motocross and freestyle riding had damaged his fingertips all the way to his shoulders. Pulling a squeegee had been painful.
Then he tried the EZ Grip Squeegee. Its ergonomic, two-handle design reduced stress and pain on his wrists. He never experienced feeling no pain since he started printing. It was a game changer.
“It greatly reduced the strain on my broken body, so I can print longer,” Lee said.
Since he wasn’t writhing in pain, he could try something he hasn’t been able to do — pull a squeegee.
“It converted me from a pusher to a puller, which means my print quality and consistency went way up,” Lee said.
In addition to reducing pain, this squeegee is built with an Ink Protection System. The system has built-in braces to support the squeegee, preventing it from falling on ink or spreading unwanted ink on other surfaces. Cleanup is also easier, as the squeegee blade comes out of the handle. All you need to do is wash the blade, pop it back in, and you’re good to go.
“All around, it has made screen printing a much more enjoyable experience for me,” Lee said.
Not only does the squeegee make cleanup easy, you get more mileage out of the blade. The squeegee does not use bolts to hold the blade tight. Instead, the built-in shams use friction to grip the blade. Since there aren’t any holes in the blade, printers are able to use all four sides of the blade. The lifespan of the blade doubles, and cuts blade costs in half.
WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT THE LEE STUART EDITION?
While the EZ Grip improved Lee’s print quality and helped reduce pain and discomfort while printing, it was missing the aesthetic appeal that Lee is known for.
“I’ll just say it outright, they only look good like 20% of the time,” Lee said in his signature squeegee announcement video.
The squeegees clashed with a lot of colors of presses, print jobs, and squeegee rubber. For Lee, enough was enough. He created his own signature edition EZ Grip Squeegee with a fully blacked out handle that looks good in any shop. Aesthetics are important to Lee, and to many screen printers. An all-black squeegee is universal, making any shop look even more professional. Every detail counts.
Printing with the EZ Grip squeegee saved Lee’s wrists and arms. Now, the black handle of the Lee Stuart Edition squeegee will always look good in any shop.
“If you’re ready to step up your print game with what’s easily the baddest-looking squeegee currently on planet earth, then get one of these things,” Lee said.
