1. A method for changing the physical shape of an electronic display, wherein the display comprises a front plate, a back plate, electrical circuits for operating the display, a perimeter seal spacing apart the plates, and image-generating medium contained in an area between the plates and within the borders of the perimeter seal, the method comprising:

  • mounting the display in a fixture to maintain cell thickness;

    cutting the display along desired dimensions resulting in a target display portion and an excess display portion, thereby breaking the perimeter seal and creating an exposed edge along the target display portion that extends from a first side edge of the display to a second side edge of the display;

    removing image-generating medium from the area between the plates along the exposed edge;

    applying an adhesive along the exposed edge, the adhesive flowing into the area between the plates; and
