About Wall Decals: FAQ’s
What are Wall Decals?
Wall Decals are an inexpensive and innovative way to transform any room! Wall decals are like giant vinyl stickers that adhere to the wall and are created in the design and color of your choice! They are simple to install and take less time than painting. They are also removable so that when you are ready to transform your room again, all you have to do is peel it off!
How easy is it to install Wall Decals?
Wall Decals come with installation instructions as well as a squeegee for application. Our step-by-step instructions are easy to follow and have received rave reviews! Note: Some of our larger decals come in sections that will seamlessly overlap during installation. Decals that are larger in size are easier to install with the help of a friend.
I have textured walls, will Wall Decals work on textured surfaces?
Wall Decals will work on certain types of textured walls. If you have knockdown or orange peel-type textures, we encourage you to order color samples or a test decal sample pack first and test the area you wish to apply the decals to. We recommend our semigloss colors for textured surfaces, as our semigloss has a stronger adhesive that will stick better. Certain types of textured paint, such as paint with a sandy or gritty component, will prevent Wall Decals from sticking. If you have regular sheetrock or drywall surfaces, our decals should adhere just fine! If you are ever unsure, we suggest that you order color samples or test decals first.
Will Wall Decals damage my walls? Will I need to repaint after I take them down?
Wall Decals simply peel off when you're ready to change the look of your space! However, our semi-gloss colors have a stronger adhesive than our matte colors, and some touch ups to the paint may be required after removal of your decals. If you are concerned about the paint finish underneath your decal being damaged during removal, we recommend using our matte colors, as they are intended for easier removal and shorter term applications, such as weddings, events, or use in dorms or apartments. Please note: We cannot guarantee the condition of YOUR walls and we are not responsible for any paint loss or damage caused. If you decal has been on the wall for any extended period of time, you may see what is called “ghosting”. This is from the rest of your wall changing color somewhat from dirt or UV rays. Once you peel the decal off the wall you may notice that the color a little different, this is because the wall underneath the vinyl was protected from dirt and UV rays.
Will Wall Decals work on glass or on my car? How about in my bathroom?
Wall Decals are actually safe for outdoor use! We use high quality outdoor-rated vinyl for our decals. Our matte vinyl is rated for up to 3 years of outdoor use, while our semi-gloss vinyl is rated for up to 6 years! Our decals are ideal for signs, businesses, trailers, storefronts, etc and we recommend using our semi-gloss colors for these applications.
Wall Decals are safe for bathroom use too! They can be easily applied to mirrors, tiles, or acrylic shower walls. If you would like to apply Wall Decals on a drywall surface in your bathroom, make sure the surface is completely dry before installation, or the decals will not stick. Due to the moisture content in bathrooms, we recommend semi-gloss colors for bathroom applications.
I just painted my walls. How long should I wait before applying my new decals?
Our vinyl manufacturer recommends that freshly painted surfaces be allowed to dry for 2 weeks before applying decals. This allows ample time for the surface to completely cure, thus allowing the decals to stick better!
How easy is it to remove Wall Decals?
Wall Decals are easy to remove! Simply start at one corner and gently peel off the wall. Some touch ups may be required, depending on the age or condition of the painted surface underneath. If your application is intended to be temporary, like in a dorm room, apartment, or at an event such as a wedding, we recommend using our matte colors, as they are more easily removed. You may also need to heat the vinyl with a blow dryer to aid in removal.
How are Wall Decals made?
Each Wall Decal is made to order and they are made from cut vinyl. Our designs are manufactured by us from large rolls of material. The designs are literally cut out and the excess material is peeled away. Once the excess material is peeled away, all that is left behind is your design! At that point, we apply the transfer paper to the design and package it up for delivery to your desired location.
Are Wall Decals safe for apartments and dorm room walls?
Yes! We recommend our matte vinyl for apartments and dorm rooms, as our matte colors are intended for easier removal and shorter term applications. However, regardless of the finish you select, our decals will stay in place until you decide to take them off your walls.
Can I reuse Wall Decals after I take them off the wall?
Because of the high quality of the material that we use, our Wall Decals are not reusable. They will still retain their 'stickiness', however, because the material is so thin, and quite often so detailed, the decals do not retain their shape or design once removed from their surface.
