3m CF Vinyl Question!!!

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a 5 feet x 2 feet piece of 3m 1080 scotch print vinyl. I have been wrapping my trim and ordered 3 feet x 5 feet from AVS on accident. All of my pieces have the weave going towards the right (////). However, the 3 feet side is the one that is that direction so the center dash piece of trim is too wide. I don't want to be forced to have it go to opposite direction.

Any help would be appreciated. I tried contacting AVS but they're not quite understanding.

What I want:


What Im forced to do:

I don't understand how you're forced? Just turn the vinyl around?
I should see two options, if you turn it 180 degrees.

Turning it 180 will keep it the same width. Turning if 90 will give me a different direction

I could order some for you but I cannot guarantee that the weave will be in the same direction. It will be a gamble depending on how a supplier cuts their roll

i dont do a lot of wrapping, but typically you need extra to be able to pull and stretch. you need to work the material a liitle and get some grip. I would gauge what you need based on what size the material comes in, to determine the yield. The company FELLERS, should have on their site what sizes are available. I'm hoping you can get footage without buying a whole roll, but i suspect not. Buying from a shop that does this and has material ( or online) is probbaly the way to go if you only need some...

In that case, your best bet would be to order a square piece so you can rotate in any direction

i think the only way around it is to order 60x60. the rolls only come in 60in widths so to get the pattern the direction you want, you need to get 60in length as well. you can try get them to cut it twice, one at the length you want for the pattern and then one the width you want (2ft). It really just comes down to the supplier pulling out 2ft from the roll and cutting it the full 60in width and thats it. doing it the other way they are forced to have a 3ft x5ft section (ultimately "wasting" a section unless someone else orders a 3ft section)

Yea this sounds like the only option as of right now. Thanks everyone for your input
