    Step 1: Measuring Your Awning
  1. Stand on a stable surface and measure the width of your awning from one side to the other, or the width of the part that you want covered over with a new Fast-Cover Panel. Be sure to get help if you need it, safety first! On this form, write down the measurements.
  2. Next, measure the height of your awning from the bottom edge to the top edge. Note this measurement as well.

Step 2: Taking Photos of Your Awning

  1. Use a smartphone or a digital camera to take a clear photo of your awning.
  2. Make sure the photo captures the entire awning, including any relevant details or areas you'd like to cover with the Fast-Cover Panels.
  3. If needed, ask for assistance from a friend or family member to ensure you get a clear photo.

Step 3: Sending the Photo to LetterBank 

  1. Use your smartphone or digital camera.
  2. Send by email to or from your smartphone to 805-874-2221.
  3. Compose a new message or fill in your request.

Step 5: Installing the Fast-Cover Panels

  1. Once you receive your Fast-Cover Panels, carefully unpack them and lay them out in a clean, open space.
  2. Allow the rolled panels to lay flat in a warm room for a day for easier application.
  3. If you haven't already, this is a good time to clean your awning's surface thoroughly to ensure proper adhesion. Do not leave any residue or soap on the awning. Remove any dirt, dust, or debris that may prevent the Fast-Cover Panels from sticking securely.
  4. Identify each panel and any installation location and measurements.
  5. Peel off the protective backing from the adhesive side of the Fast-Cover Panel. If it's very cold, very hot or windy, wait to install.
  6. Starting from one edge of your awning, carefully align the panel and press it firmly onto the clean surface. Smooth out any air bubbles or wrinkles as you go. The adhesive will set up over the next 2-3 days.
  7. Repeat the process for each panel, ensuring they are properly aligned and securely adhered to the awning.
  8. If needed, ask for assistance from a friend or local sign company to help you apply the Fast-Cover Panels correctly and ensure they stick securely.
  9. Take a step back and admire your newly enhanced and protected awning. Send us a photo!
