Wall Decal Questions

Are your vinyl wall decals removable?
Yes, and it's easy to do. Our vinyl wall decals work well for both renters and homeowners because they come off when you are ready for them to without damaging your wall or other non-porous surface. To remove, get a grip on the corner of each letter using an application/removal tool or tweezers and gently pull off the lettering. If you've had the lettering on the wall for a long period of time, you can soften them up first by using a hair dryer. 

How much does your lettering cost?
Pricing varies based on size and complexity. Please check our website for ideas ready for purchase, or visit our Creative Center to design your own. 

If you can't find exactly what you're looking for, we will custom design something just for you. Just email us with your ideas and one of our designers will help you.

What type of wall lettering is this?
These are individually precison cut letters that press on your wall or any flat surface. They are not decals with clear film or white areas around the letters, but rather individually cut letters that have been pre-spaced for easy application. The letters arrive on a sheet. After pressing the sheet to your wall and following our detailed instructions, you pull it back and only the lettering remains.

If your selected artwork contains more than a single color, each color will come on a separate sheet & need to be applied separately. The letters are thin... equivalent to about 2-3 coats of paint, they will give you the look of hand-painted stenciling without the time and trouble. And they don't fade or crack. 

What is vinyl lettering made from?
The type of vinyl used for our wall lettering is unique in that it is removable and easily conforms to the shape of the wall or object it's placed on — giving the appearance of paint. Our vinyl will not harm the surface and is available in many different colors.

What does "pre-spaced" mean? And can I place the lettering on multiple lines and places?
Pre-spaced means that we do all the positioning and spacing of the letters and words for you. The lettering arrives as a roll of text or art per color which you can apply in sheets, or cut the sheet of lettering in any increment you choose to make your quote 2 or more lines. You can even cut each word and place them in a creative layout. The possibilities are limitless.  

Can I make up my own quote and have it all pre-spaced also?
Yes, you can. Use our Creative Center to design your own text or monogram.Or contact us for help.  

Can I submit my own artwork or logo?
Yes, we have manufactured countless original artworks sent in by our customers. You may submit your original artwork or logo to us through the Contact Us page. We accept EPS, AI, PDF and some PSD, JPG, GIF and BMP files.

Can you reproduce artwork found in a book, magazine, etc.?
No, under most circumstance we cannot reproduce artwork that has been published or is copyright protected. Just as we cannot reproduce logos or names that are trademark protected. We can create vinyl lettering for you if you are the original owner of the artwork, phrase, poem, logo, etc. or have written consent from the owner or author to reproduce. 

If I submit a custom online order through your Creative Center, will I be able to see the letters before you make them and ship them to me? Yes, you will. Our Creative Center will generate a preview for you as you work. You choose your text, color, font and size. If you would like to place an order involving the use of your logo or other image, two or more colors or would like different sizes or fonts, please contact us and we will gladly help you with your order. 

Please be extra careful when submitting your order to make sure everything is spelled correctly. If the spelling error is our mistake, we will replace your lettering at no charge to you.  

Are there surfaces this type of lettering won't work for?
This type of lettering sticks to almost any smooth or lightly textured surface like painted walls, glass, mirrors, and smooth metal and wood. It will not stick to rough or uneven surfaces like bare cinder block, brick, porous aluminum, or stucco surfaces. Our products have been tested on general flat, semi-gloss and gloss paint with success. The wall surface MUST be clean, or the dirt/grease will cause the lettering to peel from the surface. 

We offer Sample Kits to test your surface and make sure our product will stick well. And, Color Swatches to check color preference, and a product sample piece is included with every order. If you have a textured wall, wallpaper, high gloss paint or other unique surface we recommend leaving a sample piece on your wall for 48 - 72 hours to test it's adhesion and removal before applying your purchased vinyl. 

Because there are many types of surfaces for which the product can be applied, and all different types of paint and other surfaces, we make no guarantee the product will stick to your space. 

It's best to test FIRST!! We highly recommend testing your surface with a Sample Kit if you have any of the following wall conditions: 

** Any glaze or faux paint finish.
** Sherwin Williams Flat or Matte Paint
** Benjamin Moore Flat or Matte Finish Paint
** Green or Zero VOC or VOC free Eco-friendly Paint
** Wallpaper (flat, glossy & textured)
** High Gloss Painted surfaces.
** Flat or Satin Paint - may require patience & pressure for application.
** Egg Shell Paint - may not stick. Please order sample kit for testing.
** Heavily Textured Walls may not accept vinyl application.
** Knock Down Textured Walls may experience difficulty with edges lifting.
** Unpainted cinder block, wood or other rough surface.
** Painted wood or plywood, may have difficulty with decal edge lift.
** Painted paneling, product may pull paint from paneling when removed.
** Cracked, Crumbling or Peeling walls (plaster or paint).

I'm afraid I'll make a mistake transferring the vinyl to my wall ...

It's very important to us that you feel confident about your choice both before and after you order from us. If your product has been damaged during installation, a replacement may be ordered at a discount rate. Watch our Installation Video for tips.

Do You Personalize or Customize the vinyl art?
Yes! We can customize most any of our designs to match your needs! 
Each design is custom made to order, there may be slight variations or alterations made that may differ from the images or pictures shown on our website to accomodate the increased or decreased number of characters in names, dates & other customized information.

Is the vinyl lettering reusable?
Usually not, once the lettering has been removed it will not apply to another surface. The vinyl is very thin, and removal usually deforms the shape of the letters. In the case of larger letters or shapes repositioning is possible.

What other types of products do you carry? 
Along with our vinyl wall art products you can also find wall clocks, prints, color labels, photo gifts, home decor, wedding decor and large full-color prints.

If you are looking for a specific color that we do not have in stock, please notify us and we will let you know if this color is available. If you are ordering product produced in a non-stock color, this will delay the order an additional 3 - 7 business days.

How long does it take to install the product? Installation time may vary by individual. Based on studies done by Right On The Walls, the average time is around 10 - 15 minutes. If you have never applied vinyl before, it may take longer. We make no guarantee on the length of time your vinyl artwork will take to apply to your surface, every space is unique & every application will differ.

Larger lettering with a great amount of words and/or designs can take longer to put up than shorter or smaller designs. We recommend cutting apart larger designs and applying your artwork in smaller sections if you are a first time applicator, and it always helps to have an extra set of hands or more to pitch in. Some application may require patience. Creativity takes time! The end result will be worth your extra effort! :)
