Placing your wall stickers for maximum effect

The colour of your wall will determine the overall finished look for your wall art sticker. Light walls look best with a dark coloured design placed on them and darker walls are more suited to a lighter coloured design. You can achieve a subtle contrast on your wall if it's a light colour for example and you place a light or medium coloured wall sticker upon it. This allows for a modest look if your wall sticker colour is the same or similar to the wall that it is placed upon. This will make your wall sticker look like it is literally floating on your wall and can give a really nice effect that you will be sure to enjoy for many a year.

A simple or decorative flower wall sticker design can appear to be growing before your eyes if placed behind a piece of furniture, particularly a bedroom headboard or wardrobe. Branch designs can shoot out from wall corners, shelves and cabinets providing a look that cold not be created any other way than using wall stickers, again it's your imagination and creativity that comes into play when finding that ideal location for your wall sticker.

Applying your wall stickers

You'll be surprised how easy wall stickers to apply. Any size or shape can be incorporated into your home's layout quickly given the correct tools and know how that we provide with all of our wall stickers and decals. Every order we process is sold complete with a full set of easy to follow instructions and a vinyl applicator. Our instructions include step by step diagrams on how to install your sticker the correct way and without any stress! Fitting your new wall sticker really is as easy as peeling the backing and sticking to the desired wall. Just make sure the wall is clean and you've allocated some time to getting your sticker fitted correctly and you'll be enjoying your new design in minutes.

Safe for all walls

Thanks to the quality of our vinyl films this makes our stickers ideal for your any of your walls but it's always to test a small section of the wall in conjunction with the adhesive properties of the sticker to make sure that you'll get a good contact with the wall. If you've just painted the wall that you're going to put your new wall sticker on then it really is best of you can leave the paint to dry to a cured finish, two weeks is recommended for this process so be patient and wait!

The surfaces that you can stick your wall sticker to include painted walls, wallpaper (not textured), glass, mirrors, plaster, drywall, metal, tiles, plastic, basically any smooth and flat surface. Removal is simple and mess free simply follow the instructions supplied with your order.

Removal of wall sticker is just a case of gently heating the vinyl on the wall using a hair dryer or heat gun on a low setting and then peeling from the wall. Heating the vinyl will re-activate the adhesive molecules on the sticker making it tacky and allowing removal to be easy and straight forward, just peel off the wall. There may be traces of glue left behind but nothing else. Glue can be removed with a little gentle rubbing using a cloth and soapy water. After you've removed your wall sticker you'll never know it's been on your wall no matter how long it's been fixed. Once your wall sticker has been taken off the wall it won't be re-usable as the vinyl will be stretched and distorted during the removal process.
