Vinyl lifting in areas, can it be fixed without replacing?

Afternoon all

Got a job I done about 6 months ago and been told that a few areas are lifting slightly, it was when I tried another media and I found this issue on a few occasions so I no longer use it but I'd rather not replace the whole graphic this time for a few little areas.

Can i fix this or does it need replacing? I was hoping for something lie a glue stick that would stick down the problem areas.

Thanks

Don’t bother mate, it will take the same effort as doing it properly. Do it again & put it down to experience

Thanks Kev. Put it down to experience alright.

I'll see what's needed and redo those parts and check everything just incase.

Client will think more of you if you replace Dan.

I think the best approach would be to replace it also. :thumbsup:

what vinyl is it that is lifting?

If it is a flat panel sign and you are suffering from shrinkage around the perimeter only. you could trim it back neat and clean. then apply a coloured border around the edge of the sign. just a bit of a "get out of jail" plan. but as said, if the customer has brought it to your attention, redoing it is a good option.

Decided to redo the graphic as rather a happy customer and the fact they are a few miles away, I don't want to keep going back if other parts lift. Rather redo in a vinyl I trust and move on.

I agree Kev, they've been a long term client for a while now and although they don't spend much, they always pay on time and they recommend me.

Thanks for your help on the other stuff by the way.
