Vinyl Graphic Decal Specifications (Walls)

Vinyl Graphic Decal Specifications (Walls)

Vinyl Graphic Decals are cut directly from vinyl without ink or printing. Any vinyl occupying the negative space of your graphic is weeded out, creating a dynamic decal. Vinyl Graphic Decals can be used for Decoration, Branding and Advertising. Easy to Apply Transfer Tape keeps all the pieces of your graphic in one place. 

  • Wall graphics must be applied to a clean, smooth, dry and non-porous interior surface.
  • Freshly applied paint should be allowed to cure for a minimum of three full weeks before wall graphic application.
  • Finished graphics shipped to customers should be removed from packaging and stored flat at room temperature for 24 hours before application.

Surface Preparation
When preparing a wall for a graphic, keep in mind that not all surfaces are suitable for vinyl film application. Wall graphics can be applied successfully only to surfaces that are clean, dry, smooth and non-porous. Any of the following
conditions can cause poor adhesion or product failure:
• Highly textured paint
• Poor initial paint bond
• Poorly painted wall edges
• Patched areas that have not been primed before painting
• Moisture behind the drywall, which can cause the drywall
paper to release. Walls with cooling systems or water
pipes behind them may be prone to condensation.
• High humidity areas including (but not limited to) garages,
entryways, and bathrooms
• Dust, dirt, or other contaminants on the wall
• Wallpaper or other wall coverings
• Cuts made to the graphic during the installation process
may cause curling or lifting.
• Freshly painted walls that have not had ample time to
cure. Wall graphics tend to bubble and release from the
wall while paint is in the curing process.

Once the paint has had ample time to cure, it’s important to clean the surface immediately before applying the film. Freshly lacquered or painted surfaces should be completely cured.

Surfaces to which the material will be applied must be thoroughly cleaned from dust, grease or any contamination which could affect the adhesion of the material. Dust and other contaminants can collect quickly on the wall and prevent the film from adhering properly. Wipe down the wall with a dry tack cloth or a lint-free microfiber cloth to remove any dust, paying attention to the wall’s edges and corners.
