Q: What are wall decals?
Wall decals are graphics made from 3mm (really thin) colored vinyl. Think "contact paper," but better because the vinyl is thinner, especially made for indoor use and has a matte finish (not shiny). This properties result in a finished look that makes the graphic look like it was painted on your wall by an artist. The best thing about wall decals made from our vinyl is that it is completely removable for up to 5 years and is made with a unique adhesive that won't remove paint or leave any residue upon removal. Why should your blank walls stay bare when wall decals are a great, low-cost way to transform any room in less than 30 minutes or without the mess or drying time of paint?
Q: Will they stick to my walls?
A good test of this, is use a piece of masking tap on the surface and leave it over night, if you come back in the morning and it has peeled off, then the stickers might too! Smooth surfaces are always best, as it allows the vinyl to have a flat hold on the surface, where as, if a wall is highly textured, it is very likely to come way!
Q: Where do you ship to?
We deliver our Unique and fun Products anywhere in the world. If we need to send your order with Express Delivery this will incur additional costs.
Q: How do they work?
We ship you your graphic ready to apply. All you do is take it out of the package tube. Unroll it. Rub it with flat hard surface like a credit card or coaster to push any air out. Flip it over. Peel and stick onto your wall. You can download our easy to follow application instructions
which will have you applying like an old pro in time. Most applications take between 5-30 minutes and most are designed to be installed by one person, if the size is a large Wall Sticker like the Large World Map
two people may be required.

. We also offer a professional installation service with any of our products which we would recommend if you are unable to install a product yourself. NB. Vinyl Impression is not responsible for any damage you cause to your stickers during installation.
Q: What happens if I use a third-party installer?
We always recommend that if you are looking for an installation service, you use our installation team. However, if you do choose to use a third-party installer, you will not be covered against damage caused during installation. In addition to this, you should only book a third party installation once you have received your order, as we are unable to guarantee your exact delivery date, meaning that we are unable to reimburse any labour costs incurred.
Q: What surfaces can I put them on?
One of the most common applications for wall decals is on painted walls. We recommend that you allow freshly painted walls or surfaces to properly cure (dry) for at least 6 weeks before applying decals. While it may seem like an excessive amount of time, painted surfaces need at least 6 weeks to dry at a microscopic level to form a proper bond with the decal. Other than that, you will want to ensure that the surface is smooth clean and dust-free by wiping with a clean cloth before application.
In addition to wall surfaces, you can apply decals to any dry, non-pourous, smooth surface such as wood, metal, refrigerator doors, plastic, and glass.

Q: Will stickers damage my walls?
Whilst we take every step to limit any damage to walls we cannot guarantee every surface will remain damage free. Any damage caused is unfortunate, but ultimately not our responsibility to repair.
We have gone to great length to find materials and install equipment that are both fit for purpose and industry recognised, meaning that damage caused is as a result of circumstances out of our control.
