How To Apply Wall Decal

Step 1: Clean and dry your wall. Make sure that all the basic wall surfaces must be flat, dry and clean, no dirt or oil left behind. 

Step 2: Measure the size of the wall to find out the certain place you want to place the decal. Try taping the decal in the desired position so you can examine the placement before you apply.

Step 3: When place decided, leave the decal taped up, take your level and line it up along an edge of your decal that you would like to be horizontal. Adjust the level until its bubble is centered. You can draw a light line under the level in pencil to help you reposition the decal.

Step 4: Remove the back of the wall sticker and place it in the desired location.If you make a mistake, slowly peel the decal off the wall and reapply. Smooth the surface and eliminate any air bubbles with a squeegee. 

Step 5: Carefully peel the protective paper on the design from the decal. To do this, you'll need to start at one of the top corners and slowly peel back at a 45° angle until it's all removed.

Tips for Applying Wall Decals

If the paper backing is stuck to any piece of the decal, simply dampen a paper towel with water until it's lightly saturated. This will help release the decal from the paper backing.

Wall decals can be applied most efficiently in a room between 60° and 80° F. If your room is outside of this temperature range, try to adjust the temperature while you are applying to help your decal stick properly.
