FAQ

What is a Wall Decal? 
Wall decals are a beautiful way to transform your walls into picturesque scenery that complements any room. Wall Decals are made from a thin self-adhesive vinyl that are transferred on to your wall using a transfer paper. Once they are on your wall, they look like a perfectly painted design. Simple Shapes offers self-adhering vinyl wall decals that are thin, durable and easy to apply. You don't have to be a pro to apply our wall decals but your walls will look like you hired one to redecorate your room!
  
What is a Wall Sticker? 

Simple Shapes Wall Stickers are peel and stick fabric stickers. They are super easy to install and move around if needed. They don't curl at the edges like most other wall stickers that you find online since they are made out of a semi-stretchable fabric.

  
What is the difference between a Wall Decal and Wall Sticker? 

One main difference is the material that they are made from. Wall Decals are a cut vinyl so they are super thin! When you put them on your wall, they look like beautiful painted designs! Simple Shapes Wall Stickers are a thicker cut fabric material but look just as beautiful. The other main difference between the two is the method of how they are made. Since Wall Decals are a cut vinyl, we do not "print" the designs. Rather we "cut" them out and in some cases, layer different colored vinyl to make our unique designs. You will notice our Wall Decal designs are simpler and more silhouette like. With Wall Stickers, we print and then cut out the designs. This means with a Wall Sticker, we can print and cut almost any graphic.

  
Are your products Removable? 

Some products are and some are not, we do state in the listing if they are or not. 

  
Are your products Reusable?

Mighty Prints Stickers are NOT reusable. As with any vinyl decal product, although you can remove it safely from your wall, most likely it will stretch and tear making it unusable once it’s completely off the wall. If you have managed to get an entire piece of vinyl off the wall in a perfect upstretched condition, please contact us because we want to hire YOU!

  
What is the lifespan of your Stickers? 

Once you install our wall stickers they will stay on your wall until you are ready to take them down. The adhesive is a removable adhesive that the manufacturer states will be removable for up to 5 years. This means that after three years, the adhesive may be a little harder to remove from the wall without peeling off some paint. Of course by then your wall will probably need a fresh coat of paint to clean up the everyday nicks and chips it has gotten.

  
Will your products stick to my textured walls? 

Well that is a loaded question. First in order to answer this, we need to know what you call “textured”.

Texture like this?

Smooth Wall Texture - Okay for Wall Decals

Probably Yes.

OR Texture like this?

Heavy Texture Drywall

Probably No. Something in between? Probably? In all honesty, the fact is that our wall stickers2 need some surface area to stick to. If there are more pointy bumps and hard ridges than flat areas, then wall decal, stickers or wallpaper may not be the solution for you. One test we like to mention to our prospective customers is to try the masking tape test. Cut out a large piece of masking tape (the beige/tan colored one made out of paper. NOT painters tape) Stick it to your wall. Use your hand to flatten it out. It should look like it is sticking well. Then come back in a day or two and see if it is still stuck to your wall or if the edges are all lifting up. 

  
Can I use your products in my Bathroom? 

Our wall Stickers  can be used in a bathroom but NOT in areas where there will be constant direct water contact (ie. inside the shower/tub) unless you plan to seal it with a clear coat. While humid conditions are okay, it’s always a good idea to keep a room well ventilated by opening up a window or turning on the fan.

I haven’t painted my walls yet, what is the best paint to use? 

Our Wall Decals work on all brands of paints. If you asked for a recommendation

  
How long should I wait before installing my wall decal or wallpaper? 

We typically recommend waiting at least 3 months for your newly painted wall to dry. If you live in a very humid area you may need to wait a little more.  This will allow the paint to out-gass.  

  
How I should prepare my wall before installing your Wallsticker? 

If your wall or surface is painted, dry and ready, there are just a few more steps you can take to make for an optimal installation experience. First, take a warm damp (just water is fine) lint free cloth and clean your wall if your paint is old. DO NOT use cleaners with alcohol to clean the walls. This will remove any dust. Next wait for it to dry again, maybe an hour or so. In the meantime put your hand on the wall. Is the wall room temperature or is it cold? Wall decals and Wall Stickers do not like cold walls.  Finally, wash and dry your hands. Clean and dry hands are the most important tools you need
