WHAT IS A WALL STICKER?

A wall sticker is a new modern way to transform the walls of your home, without the mess and stress of painting and offers a much different approach to design instead of the conventional canvas or picture frame.

Total customization means you can add quotes, silhouettes and much more in just a few simple steps. We can also create something totally custom to you, either a family motto or a quote you like by your most influential celebrity, the possibilities are endless.

AFTER PAINTING MY WALL HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT BEFORE INSTALLING?

We recommend to allow at least 2-4 weeks to elapse before applying your wall sticker to your wall. The simple reason behind this is that the lacquer in the paint takes a long time to totally cure when air drying.

Paint can dry to the touch in a matter of hours, but when applying wall art, the application tape is sticky and can peal off freshly painted paint with ease. 

This is a recommendation by us for most paints used for interior decorating and does not apply to all. As we don't know the properties of the paint you are using, we use a large window of time to ensure the curing process.

 

WILL THE WALL STICKER DAMAGE MY WALL?

No!

This is one of the most unique properties of our wall stickers, they are completely removable without damage to the surface they are applied to. As long as you have followed our guidelines, waiting 2-4 weeks for any painted surfaces to dry you will have no problem with surface damage when it comes to removal of your wall sticker.

WallChimp recommend that when you do come to removing your wall sticker, that you use a little bit of heat from a hair dryer to loosen the bond of the adhesive. The heat warms up the sticky backing enough to make it tacky and easy to pull each part of the sticker from your wall. 

If you have any queries in regards to removing your wall sticker do not hesitate to give us a call, we are here to help. 

 

DO I NEED A SQUEEGEE TO INSTALL MY STICKER? 

No, although we do highly recommend using one of our application squeegees they are not crucial to applying your wall sticker, you can use any credit card or bank card, basically anything with a straight flat edge to press down your wall sticker and remove air bubbles. 

Our application squeegees are specially designed for wall sticker installation, with a hard side for pressing out air bubbles and a soft side lined with felt to allow you to rub over your wall sticker after is it stuck on your wall to ensure the bond. 

DOES THE STICKER HAVE A CLEAR FILM OR OUTLINE AROUND IT?

No! Cheap store bought vinyl wall stickers are poor quality and are manufactured in a way to save costs and maximize profits. We do exactly the opposite using a technique called plotting which allows us to cut straight from the vinyl leaving a seamless text which looks as though it has been painted to your wall.

Each letter is individual and does not have a clear outline around it, neither are they joined in any way to one another. The application tape that is applied over the top of the wall sticker is how we manage to transfer the design to your wall. After your wall art is applied this is removed to reveal your seamless wall sticker. 

CAN I REMOVE MY WALL STICKER AND POSITION IT ON ANOTHER WALL?

Although wall stickers can be removed without damaging the surface they are applied to, unfortunately they cannot be re-applied in another position after first application.

This means that your wall sticker is permanent to its original application position until you actually want to remove your design completely. 

I HAVE A QUOTE I LIKE CAN YOU MAKE IT INTO A STICKER?

YES! This is the great thing about wall stickers, we can create whatever quote you can come up with, it could be humorous, loving or motivational, and which ever yours is we can create it.
