General Questions

How do I apply the Wall Decal?

It is quite simple to apply one of our lovely decals. We send detailed written instructions with our decals. Remember to go slow! Please view the following instructional video:

Are decals like stickers?

Yes; however, we like to think of them as "high end" stickers that appear as if someone has painted a design on your wall. They are made of high quality vinyl with adhesive backing and are each hand-prepped for transfer. We offer designs that we feel will appeal to customers that appreciate modern design.

Are the decals removable?

Yes our decals are removable. Just peel them away when you are done with them. If the decal has been sitting on the surface for a while, it can be challenging to remove. In that case, use a hair dryer set to low heat on the decal to release the adhesive material from the surface.

I just painted my walls, can I place a decal right away?

We recommend that you wait at least two weeks after painting to apply one of our decals. The surface must be dry for the decal to adhere properly.

Are the decals reusable?

No, they are not reusable. Our recommendation, if you want to keep your decal portable is to apply it on a photo frame or a canvas. This way, you can create a custom work of art that you can take with you anywhere. Please note, applying any decal on canvas is delicate work as canvas is a porous material. If your canvas is painted, you may get better performance out of the decal. Please give yourself enough time when working with decals on any surface. If you have questions or concerns about mediums that work best with our decals, please do not hesitate to contact us via email or telephone.

Can they work on glass?

Yes, they do and the flat surface of glass makes installation really easy. Metallic colors look particularly elegant on glass. Keep in mind that the vinyl adheres to glass very quickly, so you can't easily preposition. If you go slow, you'll be fine.

Do your decals work on textured walls?

Generally our decals work on all smooth or semi-smooth surfaces that are not too gritty or bumpy. The glue backing the vinyl needs enough of a surface to grip so it can stay in place. The rule of thumb is to apply decals on a smooth and dry surface. With each order we include a small decal for you to test on the surface you are going to apply the main decal. If the small decal sticks, then you can be assured of the larger decal sticking.

Do your decals adhere on all painted surfaces?

Yes, generally speaking you can apply our decals on any surface painted using commonly found interior paints. If you have a faux wall or if you use magnetic or sand-like paint, you may have some difficulty. As always, we include a small decal with every order we ship so you can test your surface before applying the decal.

My decal is peeling off the wall. What can I do?

This generally happens if the wall is not flat and smooth enough. It can also happen if the wall was not clean when the decal was applied or if there is a lot of humidity in the area where the decal was placed. You could try to use a washable glue such as glue stick or rubber cement on the back of the decal and reattach it to the wall. Please note that we cannot guarantee the decal will not damage your wall if you choose to apply additional adhesive.

Will your decals damage my walls?

Our decals are made from vinyl that contains a water-based adhesive meant to be removable and not leave a residue. However, we cant guarantee that there will be no damage to your paint.

Can we use your decals on our cars?

Yes, you can. When ordering a decal for your vehicle, we recommend a glossy decal or any of our outdoor quality vinyl. Our matte vinyls will work too but may not last as long under harsh weather. Furthermore, please mention at time of checkout if you want us to reverse the decal design so you can place it on the inside of your vehicle.

Can we customize a design?

Yes, use the contact page to shoot us an email or call us. There may be a small design fee depending on the complexity of the design. We will customize basic English lettering at no additional cost.

How are your decals made?

Using a combination of hand drawings and computer aided design, we prepare our decals for production. Once we are satisfied with the design and checked it for correctness, we use a vinyl cutting machine to produce the final product. Additional work is done to separate the design from the vinyl and preparing it for application and shipping. It is a delicate process that calls for for accuracy. We do all of our own work in Las Vegas, NV, USA.

Do your decals start falling off the walls after a few months?

Our decals are made using premium vinyl. The general life expectancy of decals is about 4-years. However, they can last indoors for as long as 7-years.

How long does it take to apply them?

Please allot 2-3 hours for your first installation, you might want to have a friend assist you. Keep in mind, that our designs are very intricate and the larger, more detailed calligraphy will take some time to apply.
