Wall sticker application - things you'll need

Don’t worry! Applying a wall sticker is actually much easier than you might think. Here are a few things you need to know:


  • Make sure your surface is free of dust and dirt by using a damp cloth to wipe it down. Then, allow it to thoroughly dry before you begin the application process.
  • If you’ve recently painted your walls, we recommend waiting 2-3 weeks before putting up your wall sticker. (If the other side of the wall is external, it is best to wait 4-5 weeks.) Paint vapours can cause vinyl to bubble and peel.
  • For the best results, don’t rush yourself. For even better results, enlist a partner to help you.

Useful tools

In addition to the decal, you’ll want to have a squeegee on hand. If you don’t have a squeegee, a credit card is a perfect substitute for a professional finish.


For the best results follow this exact method

Lay your decal out on a flat surface, such as a table or wood floor. If there are multiple pieces be sure to lay it out exactly as you want to see it on the wall.

Now, pull the white backing paper away from the vinyl and application tape. Once the backing paper has been peeled away, you’ll be left with the adhesive wall sticker on the application tape. (The application tape is similar to masking tape and makes it easier to transfer your design into the chosen spot.)


Applying the Sticker to your Wall

Using the top corners, hold the sticker against the wall. Use the line of the application tape to be sure the decal is level. Before you go any further, it’s a good idea to ask someone to stand a good distance from the wall and critique your placement. Is the sticker level? Is it at the right height?


The Perfect Placement

Once you’ve decided on the perfect placement, you will need to use the squeegee (or credit card) to rub the application tape into place. Take your time, as this is crucial to prevent unsightly bubbles.


The Final Step

Now, it’s time to carefully peel the application tape away. Do this very slowly to ensure you do not accidentally pull any of the design off the wall. If this happens, push the application tape back down and rub it securely into place before you continue pulling away from the tape.

Once you’ve pulled away all the application tape, you’ll get to see the final results. Now that you know how simple it is to apply wall stickers, it's time to order the perfect stickers for the walls of your home.
