    How wide is your 1200 cm long masking paper?
    If it is not too wide you could leave the mask on the roll - set the edge on the starting edge of the vinyl graphic and use a core to push the masking roll down the length of your table (or as far as you can reach) reposition the graphic and mask (pulling it back to you) and go again until you get to the get to the end. 1200 cm is a pretty long run by hand without a laminator.
    You can order the big squeegee from Dale here to get it done also.

    You can also do something like this:


    build your holder wide enough to hold your 1200mm mask but put it on a short table so you can set your graphic between the holder sides (off the table) under the mask roll and squeegee short sections at a time pulling the graphic to you and letting it go down under the table as it is masked.
    If that make sense.
