Step 1: Lay out the frame pieces with the flat side down, forming the shape of the finished frame.

Step 2: Pair a flat corner bracket and an adjustable corner bracket with the screw inserts pointing up.

Step 3: Insert a paired bracket into the inner channel of the frame to form a 90 degree angle. Slightly tighten the screws to secure the connection. Repeat this process for the remaining frame pieces. Once the four sides are in place, completely tighten the bracket screws to secure the frame together.

Mounting Installation

Step 1: Adjust each mounting bracket screw so it extends approximately a 1/4″ above the bracket.

Step 2: Arrange the mounting brackets level with each other on the wall, with the short L side of the bracket facing upward. Attach the bracket to the wall.

Step 3: Test the frame by hanging it on top of the brackets. If necessary, adjust the screws to level the frame.

Step 1: Lay assembled frame on a flat surface. Insert the silicone edge into the recessed groove at each corner of the frame.

Step 2: Once the corners are in place, begin working in the sides. We recommend beginning at the center of each side. Continue inserting the remaining edges around the frame until the graphic is taught.

Step 3: Hang the frame with the stretched graphic on the wall brackets. Make sure to leave the tab out for easy graphic removal and replacement.
