Tips for applying our Wall Decals
- Mark out the desired placement of your decals using blu-tac or painter tape. It depends on your decal, but roughly 40cm spacing looks great on a standard 2.7m high wall.
- Peel your decal off the backing paper and smooth onto your wall moving from one side to the other.
- If a ripple or bubble appears, simply peel back off the wall and re-smooth on.
Tips for applying our Wall Murals
- We recommend two people are needed to install our Murals.
- Mark out the preferred placement for your mural using blue tac or painters tape.
Start at the top left corner of the mural and work your way down. Peel the backing away (roughly 10cm) and stick the mural panel to the wall.
Using a bank car, ruler or wallpaper smoother ( Under $5 from Bunnings ) smooth the mural in a downwards motion to ensure no bubbles.
If a ripple or bubble appears, simply peel back off the wall and re-smooth on.
