A&E SEPTEMBER 2019 • a-e-mag.com 37 Sublimation Tip: I recommend getting the corner guides that are sold separately. They help create the perfect wrap every time. The corner guides are reusable. STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE Step One: Print your image mirrored. Keep in mind that you need 2 inches of the image to wrap around your canvas. Step Two: Press your image to the poly duck canvas. Be sure to lint roll and use the repositional spray on the image so you don't have ghosting when lifting the platen. Step Three: The canvas needs to be placed face down, and you are now ready to start assembling the wrap. With your guides placed in each corner facing up, put the stretcher bars with adhesive facing out, as shown in the image above.

Step Four: Flip over the guide with the stretcher bars and position in place. Once in place, press firmly down on each of the bars. Step two in the process — see article text for specific step-by- step details. Step three: Peel back the yellow strip and press the stretcher bars firmly in place.
