Wall Decals Help Index
|Car Decal Installation
||WALLTAT Car Decals should be installed onto a clean, dry car during moderate temperature conditions. Exposure overtime to weather elements and car washes may damage the car decal. WALLTAT cannot be held responsible for these damages, misapplication, substrate adhering issues or damages caused to the car during installation.
Two decals are included with each order, one for each side of the vehicle.
|Wall Decal Installation Instructions
Inspect your installation surface and correct any unsightly blemishes. WALLTAT decals are made of a thin, flexible vinyl that will take on the texture of your wall or surface (especially the reflective vinyl). Major imperfections may puncture the vinyl during installation.
The recommended wall texture for successful decal application and adhesion is SMOOTH properly primed, painted and cured drywall that has little or no surface variation. Glass, smooth metal, plastic, laminate, porcelain and other non-porous substrates are also acceptable.
Newly painted surfaces should dry for at least 2 weeks prior to installation. If paint is not completely dry, WALLTAT decals may not adhere properly, or may lift paint off the wall when you decide to remove it.
WALLTAT decals will NOT adhere to textured surfaces such as rough drywall, stucco, plaster or faux finishes. They will NOT adhere to oil-based paints, wet surfaces or fibrous materials such as fabric or canvas. Direct sunlight or moisture may loosen the adhesive over time and compromise the product.
WALLTAT is not responsible for misapplication, substrate adhering issues or damages caused during installation. If you are not comfortable with installation, we recommend hiring a professional painter or wallpaper hanger that is familiar with wall decals.
USE & REMOVAL
Our wall decal designs have intricate cuts making it extremely difficult to salvage during the removal process. Therefore, these are considered a one-time-use product.
WALLTAT decals are temporary and will last 2-3 years, or much longer if taken care of.
To remove the decal simply lift up an edge with a fingernail and slowly peel away from the surface. It's that easy!
Getting Started: You will need masking or painters tape, squeegee (included), scissors, friend (recommended). CLEAN AND DRY THE SURFACE where you will be applying your WALLTAT. Make sure it is smooth, dry and free of debris.
1 Clean and dry your wall. Unroll your WALLTAT (leaving both coatings on) and lay it out on a clean flat surface with the WALLTAT facing upward. Larger sizes and multi-colored designs are created in multiple parts. Some parts have match points to guide proper positioning. (Matchpoints are in the shapes of stars, circles, squares, rectangles, targets, etc.).
2 If your design is only one piece skip to step 3. For designs in multiple parts, identify matchpoints by overlapping each part to review how they fit together. If needed, refer to the website to view a picture of your design as a guide. Cut individual elements as needed, be sure to leave matchpoints to corresponding parts. (You will install the matchpoints with the rest of the design and remove them at the end).
3 Leaving both coatings on, pre-hang the WALLTAT in the desired location with masking or painters tape. Adjust as needed. Use the tape again to mark the surface at corners and areas around the perimeter of the WALLTAT. Remove the WALLTAT leaving the corner and perimeter tape markings behind.
4 Prepare WALLTAT on a clean flat surface. Your goal is to release the WALLTAT from the white paper backing. It is best to begin with an end that has the least amount of detail. Lift and fold back the clearcoat by slowly pulling back at surface level. Constantly preview the WALLTAT to ensure it is releasing from the paper. If necessary, use your fingernail to release stubborn areas and smooth them to the clear coat.
5 After the paper backing is completely removed, position your WALLTAT within your tape markings. (Hint: The clear transfer coating tends to have static and is more manageable with two people holding an end). Firmly squeegee the WALLTAT to the surface working outward. SLOWLY peel off the clear transfer coating, leaving the WALLTAT behind. Repeat STEP 5 and STEP 6 for designs with multiple parts.
6 Perform a close-up preview of your WALLTAT. Remove matchpoints as needed. If you see air-pockets, lift up edges to release the air or use a pin to pop the bubbles and then smooth down with your finger.
