Cuban Cigar Bands (Pulling Off)


Recommended Posts

Many come off whole.    
 

I find that if they have rested enough the bands become loose and I can slide them off the end of the stick.  At that point I can get to the inner flap and separate it that way.   This method yields a far better result for band preservation.

Almost every time I pull off a Cuban cigar band it comes off like this photo. Does that happen to you too? Why is that?

Happens to me most of the time - no worries, just more paper to fold and bin....

It happens to me somtimes as well when I tried to peel off the cigar bands. I prefer to slide down the cigar bands before puffing for collection BTW.

Two-ply bands, that’s the why, thanks! Sliding over the ash, that’s challenging.... I’ll have to try a soft flame to help melt the glue without burning the band if I want to save the band. I usually just want to remove the band so I can nub it, so I just deal with it. But I’ve always wanted to shellac hundreds of bands onto a coffee table....is that the way to do it, shellac? Maybe a polyurethane? Any threads on doing that?

Every time mate. Rarely get one off in one piece unless I can slide it off. 

I hate it when the band feels loose and *would* move but a spot of glue is bonded to the wrapper. Really grips my shit and you end up with a mangled last third, battling with a flapping wrapper. ?
