    We did this wrap for a customer and in the design they wanted the logo so big that it was right on the edge of the wheel well on the proof. As you can see in the actual install it cut of some of the e and s. They are wanting it fixed. What should I do/tell them?

    Add fender flares to accommodate the words? Re-wrap but with smaller copy?

    do you not lay it out before applying to see where the text lands...?

    No matter how big the customer wanted it, unless they said they don't mind it running off, it's your responsibility to make sure the logo fits on there before printing. I'd redo something like that.

    Time for a re-do. Stuff happens. Although it may have been better to fix it before it rolled.

    You're gonna have to redo that. No simple way out of this one. Customer is right.

    If the proof didn't show it running off and they said they wanted it as big as possible...... why or how did you run out of room ??

    Did the truck shrink or did you calculate wrong ??

    What he said...
    In addition, when dealing with a layout like this, I would advise the customer that because wraps do tend to stretch slightly when being applied, it is in their best interest not to have elements such as important text laid out with such little tolerance for placement adjustments, if that makes sense.
    You know what I mean. I would have told them it's best to leave yourself a little wiggle room when designing.

    Another option for text like that is apply it in cut vinyl over the top of the wrap to assure precise placement, if needed.

    I'd say you need to fix this one and live & learn. Sucks but that's the right thing to do.

    A newbie mistake. We've all made them in the beginning I'm sure.
