I RECEIVED MY GRAPHIC CHANGE OUT AND IT APPEARS THAT MY GRAPHIC IS ABOUT AN INCH SHORT/LONG. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Our graphics will have some stretch to them. Often when a customer receives a graphic that they believe to be too short it is often due to the way they are installing them. To properly install for correct fit, please completely remove the graphic. Start by installing the top two corners first, but only inserting the silicone-edge 3-4 inches from each corner. Then stretch down the fabric and install the bottom two corners with only 3-4 inches on each side. Once the corners are installed then you can continue inserting the remainder of the silicone-edge working from the corner towards the middle.
