    I have to install a large round graphic on a window with a middle divider bar. It will distort the graphic as it goes over the bar. How do I compensate for the distortion factor? Do I stretch the graphic in the middle to accomodate the total width and height of the bar? The bar is 1" tall and 2" wide.

    Probably the only decent way you are going to be able deal with the divider and make the graphic look good is to cut the 2 inch section that goes on the divider from the graphic and apply it to the top of the divider separately. I would do nothing to the sides of the divider at all. Just mount the remainder of the graphic to each window on either said right up to the edge of the divider. That's typically the way I've always seen them done and I can't imagine that working the graphic somehow all the way around the divider will look better.

    I trim it on site.
    Line the centers up on the "bar" then tape top and bottom on "bar"
    Then pull tight and tape off left/right side of graphic
    Then run a snap off bladed using the edge of the bar as a guide
    Eyeball both right and left side and hinge all 3 pieces

    You have to pick some point for it to look like a complete graphic, your only option is straight on

    round grafic on divided window

    It makes it more complicated that the graphic is round with a large 'A' right in the middle that will be divided. Any other thoughts?
