I agree. Farm-Tek isn't a manufacturer. Find the manufacturer's website and see if you can get the information from them.

We weren't sure if there was an 'inside/outside' to the film and of course put it up on a weekend evening so Farm-tek was closed.  After calling we were told the writing goes on the outside by the person who answered the phone.  The next person up the ladder said no, the lettering goes on the inside.
