What are wall decals?

Wall decals, also known as wall stickers or wall graphics, are self-adhesive decorations that can be applied to walls, windows, etc to add visual interest to a space. They come in various designs, sizes, and materials.

How do I apply wall decals?

Before applying a wall decal, ensure that the surface is clean, dry, and smooth. Remove any dust or debris. Then, carefully peel off the backing paper from the decal and position it on the wall. Smooth out any air bubbles with a squeegee or a soft cloth, starting from the center and working your way outwards. Our install page can guide you with videos and tips.

Can wall decals be removed without damaging the wall?

Yes, most wall decals are designed to be removable without causing damage to the wall surface. To remove a decal, gently peel it off the wall starting from one corner. If there is any residue left behind, you can usually remove it with warm, soapy water or a mild adhesive remover.

Are wall decals reusable?

Most decals are for one time use only. Our wall wrap material is repositionable and can be used for simple shapes like squares and circles. Talk to us directly if you are interested in this product.

Can wall decals be used on all surfaces?

Wall decals adhere best to smooth, clean surfaces such as painted walls, glass, metal, and plastic. While trickier, they do work on textured surfaces. We ask that you let us know if your surface is anything other than a low textured, painted drywall.

How do I maintain wall decals?

Wall decals are generally low-maintenance. To clean them, simply wipe gently with a damp cloth or sponge. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning tools, as these can damage the decal.

Our Decal Types:
– Die-Cut Wall and Window Decals (what we are best at) are decals that have any background/excess/non-important parts removed. For example if we were to die-cut our own Wall Decal World logo the decal would be printed… and then cut out around the lettering and the circular part of our logo. So, the remaining portion of the decal would be the *only* the lettering/circle and important parts. Once installed and the install overlay removed only the lettering and icon would be left on the wall with no background/transparency etc.

– Text decals are decals made with one of our fonts (or any other font that you may have or have chosen online) where you type in the text you want and we die-cut (see above) around

– Wall Wraps are essentially custom-printed wallpaper. The material we use can stay on as long as needed, but also removed when the time has come. Wall wraps are great for transforming entire walls or spaces as they are not able to be die-cut (see above) and instead cover the entire space.

Are the cut decals matte or gloss?
Our automatic it so print matte, but we do have gloss available if you are interested. Our wrap material is a fabric-based material that is not reflective/shiny.

Color Matching:
We color match any uploaded files to the exact color profile of the uploaded image. One nuance is that printers print in CMYK – so if you have a Pantone, RGB or HEX code – we will simply convert that profile to a CMYK profile for printing.

I just painted my wall. When can I apply my wall decals?
Freshly painted wall must be completely dry before applying a wall decals. We recommend waiting 3-4 weeks to make sure your paint has completely cured.
