    I have a client I installed some dimensional lettering to their wall the other day and one of the pieces has already come off. Now it went on a textured wall paper, I am not sure if this is normal or if I should expect more problems from it. Also the piece that was up was a 3" x 48" inch solid rectangle 2lb foam with metal lam. Has anyone had a similar situation or a possible fix for this?

    thanks

    Did you just goop the letters on or pin mount/adhesive them on?

    I know what studs are but what are pins? Any visual examples you could show me?

    Pins are angle straight pins that we usually use putting ADA signs onto cubicle walls. basically they are a 1"x1" square of plastic with an angled (90 degree bend near the plastic) pin coming out the back. They slide into cloth/textures fairly well. they are tricky for getting perfectly level though.

    when I pin-mount dimensional letters, I just cut heads off small finishing nails and glue them in - push on wall to set points, take off and drill out undersized, then push in all the way, and usually still use adhesive/DST

    Thanks I think thats what I'll have to do, I can't really add more cost to this job. So come finishing nails and adhesive should do the trick. Thanks for all your help guys.
