Wall Preparation: Assumes drywall conditions  
Required Installers: 2                    
Required Tools: Listed below

To Install Artwork: 
1.      Determine placement location and center of the wall with measuring tape. Mark center of wall or location with pencil as a placement guide. In general, most units are centered between existing wall elements or at center on wall.
2.      The suggested height to the center of the unit is 62”- 64” above finished floor (AFF).
3.      Using the pencil mark as you guide for center use the measuring tape and measure from the floor up to 62”- 64” or desired height and make a mark using pencil. Place unit on wall surface at the center of this mark.
4.      Use the holes in your material as a template to mark holes on wall surface. Installer 1 will hold the unit and the level on the top while installer 2 makes the correct marks.
5.      Use pencil to mark circles on each hole and then find center of each hole using level.
6.      Drill 3/16” holes in your wall surface with drill then insert drywall anchors into drilled holes and tap flush with hammer

Pro Tip#1: If no drill bits are available, then a screwdriver can be used to punch out the hole and minimize drywall dust and clean up.

7.      Insert mounting screw into Standoff Barrel and use a screwdriver or drill to drive screws into wall surface. Remove center placement mark from step 3 with pencil eraser.

To Insert Print and Complete Install:
8.      Place graphic between each piece of Acrylic and align graphic to center with edges using etched lines on the back of Acrylic unit.

Pro Tip#2: Use a small piece of double-sided tape on the top 2 corners behind graphic for units that are larger to hold in place to prevent from slipping.
