Frequent Asked Questions About Our Vinyl For Walls and Vehicles

Vinyl2Envy decals are an inexpensive and innovative way to transform any room! Wall decals are like large self adhesive designs that adhere to the wall and are created in the design and color of your choice! They are simple to install and take less time than painting.

Please note: Some of our larger decals come in sections that will seamlessly overlap during installation. Decals that are larger in size are easier to install with the help of a friend.

Are there surfaces this type of lettering won’t work for?
Vinyl2Envy 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. Vinyl2Envy 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.

How easy is it to remove Vinyl2Envy Wall Decals?
Vinyl2Envy decals are easy to remove! Simply start at one corner, roll them down at an angle and gently peel off the wall. Some touch ups may be required, depending on the age or condition of the painted surface underneath as well as the type of material used for your decals.

How long should I wait before applying my new wall decals after I painted?
Our vinyl manufacturer recommends that freshly painted surfaces be allowed to dry for 2 weeks before applying decals. This allows ample time for the surface to completely dry, thus allowing the decals to stick properly

How much for a custom decal?
Custom decals are priced by colors, quantity, dimensions and design details. Postage can vary due to weight and type of shipment.

How do you measure the lettering?
We measure our lettering from the top of the tallest letter in a word or phrase, to the bottom of the lowest descending letter. Note that the overall height of the lettering is 4″ but the individual letters are proportionally smaller.

Will the decal harm my painted surfaces of my vehicle?
NO! But here are a couple of concerns. Do not apply decals to ‘fresh’ paint. After a decal sits on your vehicle for many years and you want to remove the decal, the paint underneath could be effected by not being exposed to the weather conditions. The decal glue will not have any effect on the paint.

Can I put your decals on painted wood?
The answer depends on the paint and how it is applied to the wood. The better the paint and the better it is applied the better the vinyl will stay applied. However, most customers never have a problem, but because we cannot predict the quality of the painted surface, Vinyl2Envy cannot guarantee the application.

Can I wax or wash my vehicle right after I install the decals?
For washing, you need to wait a 5 days in the winter because of the temperature, but just 3 days in the summer. If you are going to wax your vehicle and there is a chance of getting wax on the decal wait at least 5 days. Some waxes have strong solvents and cleaners that can eat at the edge of the vinyl.
Note: while waxing may not hurt the decal, the decal does not need waxing.

What does “pre-spaced” mean? And can I place the lettering on multiple lines and places?
Pre-spaced means that Vinyl2Envy does all the positioning and spacing of the letters and words for you. The lettering arrives as a roll of text which you apply in sheets, or cut the sheet in any increment you choose to make your quote 2 or more lines.
