HOW TO APPLY WALL MURAL

Wall Mural Installation Guide

Please remember to check your material prior back peeling adhesive to ensure it is exactly what you expected.

Please apply your wall mural right after unrolling. If you decide not to apply, please roll back until you are ready to apply. This will ensure product’s quality.

Do not peel the adhesive all at once. This will compromise your installation process and results.

Choose Your Surface:

That’s right!  If you haven’t guessed by now, using a peel & stick wallpaper on your walls is just one of your many options.  Sure, walls are the most common amongst your choices.  However, you can pick any smooth surface of your choosing, including (but not limited to) doors, cabinets, stairs and much more.

Please Note:  To ensure that your adhesive doesn’t get stripped or removed in the process, please verify that your wall has been previously primed prior to painting.  If you have recently painted your wall, please allow more than 30 days prior to wallpaper installation. On painted walls, we recommend matte paint, but any painted surface should be fine as long as it has been primed before painting. It is important to follow our recommendations to ensure your walls or surfaces will not be damaged. 

Many clients have successfully placed our wall murals on textured walls, however, please be aware that our products are recommended for smooth walls and surfaces. 

Prepare Your Surface

Use a damp cloth to wet and clean the surface.  After the entire surface has been cleansed, dry the moisture with a clean dry cloth, and allow your wall to completely dry.  Then, move on to the start of your wall mural application.

Applying Wall Media

Don’t worry about getting the application right the first time.  Your newly acquired wallpaper is completely removable and can be re-positioned.  Although our peel & stick wallpapers were designed for a one-person DIY project, you may require two people to install it to your liking. 

On a flat surface or floor with the liner facing towards you lay your panels in the same order you are going to apply them to the wall.

Pull the liner about 6’’ and start applying first panel from the top of the wall Simply apply the exposed adhesive area to the surface of your choice.  Again, don’t worry; if you’ve made a mistake or wish to remove it and reapply it, go right ahead.  Our peel & stick wallpaper was specifically designed to reapplication.

Once you have finished with the initial 6’’, peel the liner another 6’’ and repeat the process until reaching the very bottom of the surface.  Simply run your hands across the surface for added smoothness.

Important: If the wall mural is smaller than the total wall space and you are not starting from the corner of the wall, we strongly recommend you also use measuring and pencil dots techniques creating a line horizontally and vertically in order to assure mural alignment.

Should you find any bubbles, you can use a squeegee for additional smoothness or simply peel and re-stick your wallpaper.

Repeat the previous steps with the remaining panels.  This time be sure to match the design.  You should expect less than ¼’’ of overlapping.

Trimming

Using your sharp blade and ruler, trim the excess wall mural from the bottom of the wall. 

That’s it!  You’re done.  Now it’s time to relax and enjoy your piece of art. :)
