Never stretch the vinyl wrap, as this can cause serious end lift. Squeezing the sheet is the right option, rather stretching it. Vehicle wraps and decals are quite sensitive and require special handling.
For squeezing, always use the down motion and start from the center of the sheet rather starting from one end to another. In case you find any bubbles on the surface of the sheet, then puncture immediately with the help of a pin.
