Wall Decal Application Instructions

Prepare Decal

Use a squeegee or plastic card to firmly rub the surface of the transfer tape to insure that the decal is adhered solidly to the transfer tape.


Surface Preparation

Use a tape measure or a ruler to determine the exact area where the decal will be placed. Clean the area with a damp towel and let dry completely. Do not use chemical cleaners.

Wall decals can be applied to most clean, smooth, & dry surface. Put them on your walls, ceiling, doors, windows, mirrors, tile, sealed concrete, glass, smooth metal, etc.

Do not apply to stucco, brick, or canvas type surfaces. Only apply to wallpaper if you want it to be permanent. Wall decals stick very well to matte paint. More intricate designs may not adhere very well to semi or high gloss paints. Wait 3-4 weeks after painting before applying wall decals to allow for paint outgassing and to dry completely.


Make a small test decal to ensure that the vinyl will adhere to your intended surface. 

Small Decals: Flip the decal over, so the decal is face down, and carefully peel the backing paper away from the decal. The decal cannot be repositioned, so be careful to line it up where you want it. Use a squeegee or plastic card to apply firm pressure over the whole design.

Medium & Large Decals: We recommend applying with 2+ people. Use blue painter's tape to make a hinge at the top, peel the transfer tape up from the bottom, remove the backing paper, and apply the decal from top to bottom. Another option is to make a hinge in the middle and apply the decal one half at a time. (see below)


Transfer Tape Removal
Carefully peel away the transfer tape in a slow and steady corner to corner motion. Peel down towards the decal, not towards yourself. Stop and re-squeegee as needed. Enjoy your new vinyl wall decal!


Wall Decal Removal

Wall decals can be easily removed, but not typically reused. Our chalkboard vinyl and inkjet printable fabric material can be reused and repositioned. Wall decals will not leave any residue on your wall when removed. Since we cannot guarantee the condition of all wall surfaces, we cannot guarantee that some paint flecking will not occur.
