WHAT ARE WALL STICKERS?
Wall stickers are an innovative way to decorate your walls, they are also known as wall decals, wall transfers, or more commonly wall art.
Our wall stickers are made from a special type of vinyl with a premium matte finish, the unique properties of this material make the finished wall art look just as though it has been painted onto the wall, the pressure activated adhesive also ensures that they're easy to apply, last for years and years - and ensure they're easy to remove again when the time comes.
DO THEY HAVE A BACKGROUND?
No they don't. Our wall stickers are custom designed, cut from colour cast vinyl, hand burnished and then prepared with an application layer. This produces a wall sticker that can be transferred onto your wall with absolutely no background or clear border.
Many cheap wall stickers found in shops such as 'The Range' and 'Wilkinson's' do have a clear background, or sometimes even a white background. These are not hand made vinyl wall stickers like ours - they're just printed stickers.
WHERE CAN I APPLY THEM?
Our wall stickers can be applied to any surface as long as it's smooth and flat. These include painted or wallpapered walls, tiled or plastered walls, smooth concrete walls, wood, metal, plastic and glass. We do have materials that can be used on textured surfaces or for use outside, please contact us for more information.
WHERE CAN'T I APPLY THEM?
We do not recommend using our wall stickers on anything overly textured or uneven. This includes textured wallpaper, bare brick or natural stone \ slate. We don't recommend using our wall decals on any poor surfaces either such as damp walls, walls painted with cheap \ budget paint or older paintwork that show signs of deterioration.
ARE THEY EASY TO APPLY?
We try to make our wall stickers as easy to apply as possible by using the best application tape available and keeping fresh stock that hasn't had a long shelf life. Every effort is made to keep the application process easy and enjoyable, we provide full installation instructions with every order, we're here to help with troubleshooting tips and advice if you get stuck and we also provide free replacement pieces or sections if any mistakes are made during the application procedure.
CAN I APPLY THEM TO NEWLY PAINTED WALLS?
We strongly recommend that you wait 4-6 weeks after painting before trying to apply your wall stickers. This is because most paints need time to achieve their full strength and durability (also known as time to "cure") and the time this takes depends on many varying factors. If you attempt to apply your stickers before 4-6 weeks have passed you risk damaging the paintwork or spoiling the sticker with air bubbles or peeling edges.
