Purchasing and Applying Wall Vinyl Decals

If you are looking for a great decor solution for your walls, consider using wall vinyl decals. These popular decorative items consist of sheets of transparent adhesive vinyl upon which are printed various graphics, pictures and letterings. They give a fashionable and modern look to any room for the home, office or business.

When selecting a vinyl decal, be sure to inquire about the quality of the adhesive. The best decals will stick to their surface for years without peeling off. They will also not leave any trace on the walls as they are taken down. Some decals can be used more than once though this is not the case with many of them. You may request free samples from online decal shops as most of them routinely provide this service to potential customers. It is a great way to test the adhesive on your particular surface of choice.

When you are ready to install your decals on your walls or other flat surfaces, make sure it is clean. Dust can seriously diminish the lifespan of a decal by making it peel off or fall off altogether over time. Allow for the wall to dry completely before beginning the installation process. Also, if paint has been applied to the surface where you want to apply the decal, it is best to wait for a few weeks at least before proceeding. Putting up a decal on walls that have been recently painted can result in the paint coming off with the decal when you take it off.

To install a decal, simply remove the back layer which protects the adhesive side of the actual vinyl sheet where the designs are printed. Once the sticky side is exposed, you only need to apply it on the wall directly. Use a plastic card to swipe and remove any air bubble that may form between the vinyl and the surface. If you have a large sheet of vinyl to install, you may find it easier to gradually remove the backing layer instead of exposing the sticky side all at once. Prior to removing the backing layer, you may also use masking tape to mark the spot, corners or contour when you want your decal to go.

All in all, purchasing and installing vinyl decals is a simple process. It takes a little bit of time and care but it is not particularly complicated. Everyone can enjoy the professional decors created with vinyl wall decals and vinyl wall quotes!
