INSTALLING THE CLOCK FACE
Please use the supplied Memory Dots, attached to the top of your inner packaging.
Install the movement through the unattached clock face. This allows you to rotate the print to where it needs to be and holds the print firmly while gluing. I then lift each corner to apply the adhesive.
Do not use Elmer's or wood glue! The print will absorb the glue and fall apart.
Attaching Directly to an Old Clock Face
If the new clock face is light colored you may want to cover the old face first with an additional piece of white paper, white paint or Kilz primer. Keep in mind that keeping the original face intact on an antique clock may help retain it's resale value.
Trimming / Punching
♦ Trimming - clock faces can be cut easily with an exacto knife. ClockPrints will trim to size, square, rectangular or round. Add these dimensions to the "Message to Seller" section of the order form.
♦ Movement hole - ClockPrints adds a 1/4" hole to each face. If you need something larger or do not need a hole add this information to the "Message to Seller" section of the order form.
♦ Winding holes - Cutting these before mounting makes it difficult to align. I prefer to cut them after mounting using a sharp exacto. The edge or the mounting board hole can be used to guide the knife.
