Frequently asked questions about wall decals
- Why would I want to use a wall decal in the first place?
Wall decals are a quick and easy way to decorate your home without damaging your walls with hooks or paint. Asides from walls, they can be placed to any smooth, not-porous surface; including windows, doors, mirrors, furniture, laptops, etc.
Our decals are perfect for cleansing you home of bad moods and sad vibes. By using a door friend on at least one door of your home, you are guaranteed to experience brief sensations of happiness every time you move from one room to another. We have also had reports of very impressed and happy friends and quests as a result of installing wall decals.
- What materials do you use for your decals?
- We actually use a mix of different materials. All of our BLACK, WHITE and YELLOW wall decals are cut out of a high quality matte PVC-Free Belgian eco-film. The other decal colors are cut out of a high-grade German made vinyl meant specifically for interior walls.
- Can I use your wall decals in ANY wall?
Our decals will stick to any wall as long as it is smooth and not super porous. We do not recommend to apply them on bumpy, rough or textured walls such as stucco or eggshell painted surfaces. Bumpy walls will create pockets of air in between the sticker and the wall, thus interfere with the sticker adhering. They are also not recommended for brick or non-painted cement surfaces. Made of Sundays is not responsible if graphics applied to a bumpy texture do not stick.
- Can I install your wall decals on wallpaper?
You can, but we recommend not to. There is always a risk that the wallpaper will peel off when removing the decal. It is always hard to guess how well the wall paper is attached to the wall in the first place.
- How do I know if my wall works with wall decals?
If you are not sure of whether the decal will work in your wall or not, let us know! We will be more than happy to send you a small sample of the material for you to try out. You can also test out your wall with a simple small piece of masking or washi tape. The masking tape has a very low-tack adhesive, and usually works as a good indicator if the decals will stick or not!
- Can you stick wall decals on newly painted walls?
Sure, just allow at least 30 days on newly painted surfaces. It should be completely super dry or bubbles can occur if the paint is still out-gassing. Also make sure all drywall painted or repainted surfaces have been primed in order to avoid unwanted adhesive remains and paint peeling upon removal.
Please note that some of the new new VOC 0 eggshell paints might contain small amounts of silicone and thus not work very well with anything sticky. You can always test your wall with a simple piece of masking tape, if it sticks then our decals will too.
- Can I use wall decals in the bathroom?
Absolutely! As long as you keep them out of direct contact with water, our fabric stickers and wall decals are prefect for bathroom and kitchen use. The stickers can be applied to mirrors, glass surfaces and tiles. Just remember that our stickers need to be applied on dry surfaces, therefore do not shower at least 3 hours before applying the stickers. Once applied wait at least 3 hours before taking a shower or having an awesome foam party.
- How do I clean the surface before applying my wall decal?
Use a warm, damp cloth or sponge to clean the wall surface or window and allow it to completely dry before applying your sticker or decal. Also make sure all previous cleaning solutions are completely gone.
- Can I use your wall decals outdoors?
We recommend to use them only indoors. Or well, they can be applied if it is a smooth surface – but the the sticker material may be affected by harsh weather conditions. The colors may fade of strong sun exposure or rain. That is why we rather keep the stickers nice and happy inside.
- How long can I keep the wall decal before installing it?
We recommend installing the decal within at least with in a couple months of purchase. Some variables such as temperature or light may affect the properties of the application tape that is on top of the vinyl, making it harder to apply later. If you plan on waiting, it’s best to store the decals in a cool, dark and dry place until application.
- I live in a rented apartment, will your wall decals leave residue when removed?
Technically not. Our wall decals allow a residue-free removal for up to 2 years. However, be aware that if applied to very old walls or furniture, the paint may peel off upon removal if the paint was already flaky or in poor condition. Always take care to make sure that your wall is suited for decals before installation.
