WallDesign Decals Faqs

What are wall decals? 

Wall decals are the latest craze in the home makeover movement.  Sometimes called wall stickers or wall tattoos, they are essentially designs cut on a thin self adhering vinyl which can be applied to almost any surface.   They can transform the look of any room and are very popular because they are easy to apply, and very affordable.

Why should I use WallDesign wall decals? 

The question should be why SHOULDN’T you use WallDesign wall decals!.. All kidding aside, they are a great way of refreshing your space.  They are affordable and easy to install and there are endless possibilities to what you can do with them.

Where can I use WallDesign wall decals? 

Our wall decals can be applied to just about any surface including painted wall (your typical interior wall), concrete, glass (mirrors & windows), wood, and metal.

What are the two types of material used in WallDesign products?

We have two types of media:

WD Fab Material –

These products are printed on Fabric material and then cut to give a beautiful and colorful sticker kit that adds a lot of colours and life for your little one’s room.

This designer product is very eye-catchy for an infant while being graphical and stimulating for a toddler and above. The features of this product are very unique such as repositionability as many times as you want (move it through different bedrooms, play around with the elements) and virtually fail-proof for application in every way.

 WD Vinyl Material –

These products are cut from pre-coloured vinyls based on the design. When the decal designs are pasted on the wall of your living space, the wall looks like it is hand-painted with the colours of the decal. The look is beautiful, modern and timeless. The size varies, where you can just have a sticker for your laptop to a full-sized theme-based decal kit that can set the ambiance for a room. Application is more difficult and patience is key, but as you keep working with this material you will enjoy the DIY aspect of this.

I have textured walls, will WallDesign wall decals stick to my wall? 

Yes, our decals work on normal textured walls.   As long as the texture is not too deep or stucco-like you shouldn’t have any problems installing our decals.  If you do have problems, you can always contact us for assistance at support@walldesign.in

It is very important to contact us first if you have medium to heavily textured walls because we cannot refund a transaction if the decal does not adhere to your wall.  We would be willing to send you a sample if you ask and send us a photo of your wall first.

How do you remove wall decals? 

We’d have to say that it is a fairly easy process.  For the WD Fab material you can just peel and re-stick elsewhere. For the WD Vinyl decals, you will have to carefully get an edge of the decal, pull it backwards and peel it like you are sliding the vinyl along the wall (at an angle of 180 degrees). Do this slowly for best results.

Are wall decals re-useable? Moveable? 

Only the WD Fab material decals are re-usable and movable as many times as you want as long as the adhesive side of the decal does not get dirty.

The WD Vinyl material decals are strictly one time use only and cannot be reused or moved.

Please check the description of the item you are interested in.  Unless it says “Fab Material or Movable or Re-stickable” they are one time use only.

I rent an apartment, is it safe to use wall decals? 

Absolutely!  Our decals use a removable adhesive that is non permanent.  This means they will not form a permanent bond with your paint.  If you use our tip above about decal removal, you should not have any problems.

Before application at or close to humid locations, pay special attention to make sure the surface is completely dry. Decals shouldn’t be applied close to where under 3’s can reach. Although the media is tear resistant, some of the designs have some smaller pieces, that if peeled can be a choking hazard.

6. How easy is it to apply WD Fab decals on the surface?

Very easy. Just peel the decal from the backing paper, position on the application surface, attach the center of the decal to the surface and work your way out towards the edge of the decal. Don’t worry if you get any bubbles on the way, as the media is repositionable, just take it off the surface and continue applying.

7. How easy is it to remove/reposition WD Fab decals?

Our media low tack adhesive is easy to take off any surface. Taking it off is easy right after first application and will stay the same over time; Even after long periods of time taking it off the surface is easy.
