Follow these steps to calculate how much self-adhesive vinyl a project requires:
- Measure the width of the surface including the edges you would like to cover. Add 8cm for the excess trim. This determines the width of the roll you require (eg 54cm wide surface + 8cm trim = 62cm. Round this up to the closest roll width which is a 67.5cm wide roll).
- Measure the length of all surfaces including the edges you would like to cover and add 8cm of excess trim for each surface. This determines how many meters you need. (e.g 170cm + 8cm = 178cm (1.78m). Round this up to the closes roll length which is a 2m long roll.
- The standard sizes of the rolls are 2m and 15m. It is best to use one length for each surface. If you need to add two pieces together then our wood grain designs will hide the joins the best.
- We always recommend to add a bit extra than what you need as sometimes mistakes happen, although we prefer to call them practice rounds.
- If you are unsure, we are always happy to help. Please send us your images and measurements of each surface.
