    Installing on a split window.

    Wow @mark-s I’m so glad your in a forum that’s used to help people. I’m trying here ... and you don’t even know my situation. My brother did signs before he went into the marine Corp and I had to bury him. I’m trying to keep this going for him. So yeah it’s not my expertise but i will do whatever it takes to learn it all. Even if I have to deal w morons like you that are so unkind. I hope you were able to feel so cool after your comment...

    Installing on a split window.

    Thank you @slice&dice. I have done that already. Where I’m curious is I was going to just apply the decal on either side of that beam and cut the letters where the beam is. As I looked around on other store fronts I only found one and it looked like they applied it right over the beam. With that I would assume there was extra space needed to fold down the side of the beam but not sure how to take that into account. Did they stretch the letter?
  4. How does one go about installing vinyl on a window that has a beam in the middle? The customer wants wording on both windows but there is a beam down the middle. What do I do? He wants them centered and I’m not sure what to do.
  5. Hi there, im looking for some guidance on pricing when it comes to making sure you can pay employees, rent, insurance and utilities. I’m not looking for the at home DIY prices. Is there anyone in here that has a store front and can tell me how they base their prices to make sure they cover their overhead and make a profit please? Thank you in advance for your guidance!

    Propane truck application

    Hey all, So I have something that I need help with. I have been selling decals for years online, so not much with application wise. Although I have done several applications at businesses and car decals, I have a new one that I was approached with. A propane truck... with reflective. how does one set something centered and level on a cylinder like that and I was told that you can not do a wet application w reflective. How do you all handle these applications. I have been asked to do this tomorrow so any quick help would be appreciated. If this weekend has passed and you are reading this please give me your feed back Still. There is a fleet of these that I will be doing eventually so id love all your tricks.Thanks!

    Can you share the link for the black possibly? I only see white red and yellow. It is pretty amazing! i have used it a lot and it looks great but have gotten it for much cheaper so that is the only reason i mention its a lot. Im looking for it now just cause I'm placing a big order so figured id throw that in but its too much of a difference to justify.
