We are excited to carry a new line of wall transfers from mia&co.  They are beautiful, mostly floral designs that are great for home decor and sprucing up your office.  Wall transfers are different from peel and stick designs in several ways.  They are not as easy to apply, however, they allow for a larger design with a more handpainted look to be installed.  With a little patience, they really are amazing and are removable with no damage once you are done with them.  Here is a installation guide from the manufacturer to help, and you can always contact our customer service with any questions or concerns.  

Thank you for shopping Wall Sticker Outlet!!

  1. Your wall decals will arrive printed on one or more sheets and packaged either on a flat cardboard backing or within a protective plastic shell. Open the packaging and remove the sheets, plus any application instructions.

  2. Prior to application, make sure your wall (or other surface) is clean and dry. Wipe the surface with a dry cloth or slightly damp sponge to ensure that it is free of dust or dirt. If your wall has been recently painted, do NOT apply your wall decal! Wait at least two weeks after painting to apply wall decals. 

  3. Unfold the sheets and spread them out on a surface or floor near the desired location for your decal. Decide how you would like your design to look—it doesn't have to match the picture—and locate the appropriate pieces on the sheets.

  4. At this stage, if you are working with a design that requires assembly, it will be helpful to cut the sheets into pieces. Use a pair of scissors to cut apart the sheets so that the separate pieces can be handled individually, following the dotted lines as guides if they are present. This will make it easier for you to put together the finished product. Cut as close to the edges of each piece as you can, excluding any numbers or dotted lines.

  5. Using clear or painter's tape, tape the individual pieces of the design to your wall in their desired spots. Do NOT remove the backing yet: it is important that you are happy with the placement before applying anything. You may want to lightly mark the wall with a pencil so you can return the pieces to the proper locations. Once you have done this, remove the pieces from the wall.

  6. Once you have a plan for your design, it's time to set it in motion. SLOWLY remove the white paper backing from your first piece. The decal should stick to the clear film. If it does not, re-apply the film, place the decal on a flat surface, and smooth with a credit card or plastic smoothing tool. Peel the backing away again and the decal should now stick to the film.

  7. Carefully apply the first piece to the wall in the desired location. The film should stick easily to the surface. Using a credit card or plastic smoothing tool, firmly rub the decal to the wall. Use short motions and rub from the inside out, adhering the decal to the surface and forcing out air bubbles.

  8. Slowly remove the clear film from the decal. If the decal begins to peel away with the film, re-apply both to the wall and use your credit card or smoothing tool to rub the decal again. The film should peel away easily, leaving your wall decal behind.

  9. Repeat steps 6-8 until you have assembled the entire design. When applying pieces that “connect” together to form a large design, use care to properly line up each piece before smoothing the decal on the wall. Remember: transfer wall decals cannot be repositioned after application, so be careful!

Once you've applied all your pieces, take a step back and admire your handiwork! In the future, if it becomes necessary to remove the wall decal, slowly peel each piece away from the wall and discard.
