Our vinyl has a matte finish and can go on any CLEAN, DRY, SMOOTH non-porous surface (walls, glass, plastic, etc). It is removable although not reusable. (Please note, upon removal slight damage to paint might occur and minor touchup may be necessary.) Please wait 14 days to apply to newly painted walls. The matte finish vinyl can require more patience than the glossy vinyl sold by many vendors but the end result has a beautiful “hand painted” look.
*Please note: the larger and more intricate the graphic, the more time and patience it will take to transfer and apply the graphic. As so many of our customers have told us, however, the end result is worth all the extra effort! We will send some additional tips along to help with the ease of managing these graphics.
Our decals are a three-layered piece:
TOP LAYER: The clear transfer tape
MIDDLE LAYER: The actual lettering
BOTTOM LAYER: The glossy paper the lettering lays on
Wall decals can be placed in 6 steps.
Step # 1
Position your decal on the wall and tape it in place with painters tape. Take a moment to make sure it is positioned right using a level and tape measure if necessary. Then take a long piece of painters tape and place it up and down the middle (for wide graphics) or across the middle (for tall graphics). This is called the “hinge” method and it divides your graphic into two halves.
Step # 2
With the graphic secured in the center, start from one end and flip the chosen section back over the other half of the graphic which is still secured to the wall. Slowly begin peeling the backing paper away from the vinyl and transfer tape until you reach the hinge tape. Be sure all the vinyl is sticking to the transfer tape as you work. If the vinyl starts to pull up with the backing paper, using your finger nail to press it back onto the transfer tape or crease the backing paper at the edge of the vinyl to get it to release. Once you reach the middle “hinge”, the backing paper you have peeled away needs to be cut off with scissors. Be careful not to cut the exposed transfer tape and vinyl or allow it to fold back onto itself!
Holding this half of the graphic perpendicular to the wall, start from the hinge tape and press the transfer tape and vinyl onto the wall with your hand (working your way towards the edge). Repeat this step with a credit card or stiff spatula in a sunburst pattern to remove any air bubbles and encourage adhesion.
Remove the hinge tape and all other painters tape. Now, SLOWLY peel away the backing paper from the second half of your graphic as you did in Step #2.
Repeat Step #3 with this half of the graphic.
SLOWLY peel the transfer tape away from the graphic and wall at a sharp angle. If the graphic starts to come off the wall with the transfer tape place the transfer tape back against the wall and rub over the area again before resuming the removal of the transfer tape. If it is really stubborn you may need to help press the vinyl onto the wall with your finger until it is secure.
**Important note about wall graphics: wall graphics need to be applied in a timely manner, preferably within 2 weeks of receiving your shipment. The longer the vinyl sits after being cut, the harder it becomes to release from the backing paper.
