Each Cool Art Vinyl product posted out will arrive with clear instructions that you can follow. Please read the wall art sticker application instructions clearly when you open your vinyl product. Our art product is unique and you must read the instructions even if you have some prior knowledge of wall stickers.
95% of our wall sticker products are NOT peel and stick. They have a transfer tape used to transfer the design onto the wall surface.
The process involves:
- Wall or surface preparation and cleaning
- Planning the layout
- Temporarily tape design in place
- Secure the design
- Remove backing paper
- ROLL the design onto the wall
- Leave the design on wall with transfer tape on top for a period of time
- Remove transfer tape from front of design.
Applying wall quotes and wall decals can vary in difficulty and does require care and patience.
Please ensure that you have prepared the surface carefully. If the surface is of poor quality, you may have trouble applying the decal. Furthermore, when it comes time to remove the decal, if the paint is poor, there may be some lifting.
We offer vinyl test swatches for FREE and are happy to send them out before you make your purchase. We take no liability for vinyl decals that will not adhere to rough surfaces or poor paintwork.
Installations for offices or corporate venues
Delegate a special project team to the office design. They can work with us to develop design ideas and wall quotes for the office. Then they can even be responsible for the installation. A great team building idea!
Another great use is to design decals to be applied to the lids of laptops, this way your corporate branding will be present in every presentation. Apply a logo, design, or name.
We recently used vinyl to decorate a set of metal filing cabinets in an office. It adds some personality, and minimises the ugly corporate feel of the office.
Installations for weddings
This is a great idea, but there are several important considerations. Refer to our wall decal decorating centre
for more details on weddings.
Essentially, when dealing with a wedding venue you need to be extra careful about checking what is possible or not.
Wonderful quotes on the wedding car are a special touch to the wedding and look absolutely fantastic in photos and video of your wedding day. As do focal points and monograms of the couples of names.
BUT decals are not suitable for all venues, so please check with your supplier first and ask lots of questions about liability of surfaces etc.
Installations in the home
If you live with other people, why not surprise them with the installations and see how long it takes them to notice.
Or if you applying in your own home, ask a friend over to provide a second opinion about the final placement of the wall quote or decal.
When you`re trying to decorate an apartment, generally adding a personal touch to the walls has been off limits because you can`t paint, etc. However, now you can add more than enough charm and personality to your walls using Cool Art Vinyl quotes or designs. Vinyl is simple to apply, has no messy cleanup, and is safe for walls - which means renters everywhere can add personality to the walls of their apartment without the need for paint! Aside from that...it`s even less expensive than paint, which allows you to change the decal designs frequently as your home decor tastes change.
Installations on the car
That’s right! All our decals can be applied to vehicles. So get creative and make a statement on your car.
The vinyl is removable and can be removed when a new look is required.
