    Hi guys,

    we have some wall vinyl to install – 2800 wide by 5600 high. Would you join length ways (1370mm roll) or horizontal? I’m just concerned that it’s a pretty long strip at 5600 and if the fit is slightly off by the time the bottom is reached it has the potential to be a fair way off?

    Also, while I’m here any recommendations on material? I’ve tested some removable from Drytac that seems to perform better then other options.

    Thanks

    Down, gravity is on your side. Hopefully have someone below to keep you on track, and a laser at your side.

    We’ve always sworn byat Drytac for lamination and adhesive products, and they seem to be focusing more on the large format materials (at the expense of their photographic related products, my niche).

    Have you ever seen Robert install horizontally?

    Always fit in vertical drops, as previously mentioned, gravity is on your

    side, and to be honest, over that distance you would easily be able to manipulate the vinyl if it run out slightly 🙂
