Stay within the marked guidelines until finished.

Helpful tips to remember

With any of the above methods you choose in applying your cornhole board wraps, air bubbles are an annoying issue you might have to deal with. Fortunately, they can be corrected and removed. You can use a squeegee or credit card to gently stroke the wrap on initially, so there are no bubbles left. If already applied, you can use it from the middle and push the bubbles all the way out. For stubborn bubbles, use a pin to burst it open and let the air escape. If the bubbles are small, you can let the board sit for a day or two after application, and they might disappear on their own.

To protect your decal, don’t be in a hurry and allow enough time for your board wrap application to dry, especially if a wet application was used. Once dry, apply a coat of polyurethane to protect it from wear and tear.
