Happy Holidays Everyone. I do not know if this question has already been asked or not but I tried to search for it before posting and could not find anything.

*** I want to cut some vinyl wall art for my granddaughter for Christmas but I will not be able to hang it for her, I just want to give it as a gift so her mommy and daddy can hang it later.

Does anyone know how to do this? Best way to package it, wrap it, contain any lettering that has not been merged, etc.

Thank you to anyone who can help....

Im not sure if this is the correct way, but I would cut it (of course) and weed it. I would then put the transfer tape on it. Make sure it is all ready to just pull up the tape and stick to wall. Maybe give mommy and daddy the link to a "how to video" so that they can see the technique.

As for mailing I would roll it up loosely and stick it in a cardboard tube mailer. I purchased vinyl on line and it came in one.

Hope that helps.

I'm not sure if this will help, but here's my thought:
Somebody recently ordered vinyl lettering from me but wanted the overall size larger than I can cut. I have a Create, which only cuts 6x12, and she wanted the total size to be 20x20. I was unable to do this in one cut/layout, so I cut the letters, using several layouts (not merged). Then,I weeded it and, BEFORE applying transfer tape, I laid it out side by side to make it the exact layout she wanted. Once I had everything straight and spaced accurately, I applied the transfer tape, peeled it off the original backing, and then placed it on the waxy side of freezer paper. I tested this with a small piece of scrap vinyl for a day. The freezer paper kept the adhesive sticky enough to apply to the wall, and yet slick enough to release the design when needed. I left the transfer tape on so she could simply peel and apply it herself (obviously if your daughter is young, you will still want to apply it).
To package it, I used the same method as the previous post: loosely rolled in a cardboard tube. I'm sure it would depend on the size since if it was small enough you could probably put it in a large envelope (manilla, photo mailer, etc.) with a thin cardboard inserted to keep it from getting bent.
She sent me a picture once she had it on her wall. I'm adding it here - perhaps it will give you a better idea of what I'm trying to say.
HTH.
