How do I stick my new Fantastick wall stickers to my chosen surface?
Your decal is made of long-lasting fade resistant, 3 - 5 year guaranteed vinyl. This product works best on a SMOOTH surface and we do not recommend sticking them on rough walls. It can be more easily removed when heated with a hair dryer, but cannot be reused.
Please note that only some of the stickers have transfer tape /application sheet on as it is not necessary with the peel and stick designs.
With all our decals, there are no background and the surface it is applies to, will show through. Think of your vinyl stickers in 3D. Your sticker comes in 3 layers.
- Top layer - Transfer tape (this will not be supplied for peel and stick packets)
- Middle layer - Vinyl
- Bottom layer - Backing paper
Applying your stickers to a wall:
Wipe your surface with a dry cloth and sand down any rough areas.
You can cut your design in smaller pieces to make it easier to stick or arrange as some designs have been arranged to fit on the sheet and are not correctly positioned.
If application sheet is supplied, remove the backing paper so that the stickers are stuck to the transparent sheet. Flip the decal sheet around and slowly peel off the bottom layer. Best working from one corner to the opposite corner at an angle. If the decal wants to stick to the backing paper, slowly manipulate the bottom layer to help the decal to stick to the transfer tape.
Use a ruler/spirit level to determine the precise position on your wall.
Position your sticker according to your markers on the wall.
Working from top to bottom, using a credit/bank card to gently push the sticker down while softly pushing the air pockets to the closest border.
For larger pieces use soapy water to wet the whole sticker as well as the wall & apply while wet. This will allow you to move it until you’re happy with the position.
When you are happy take a soft cloth and wipe the whole sticker down.
Love your stickers!! Rub it down every now and then until the glue has settled.
Applying your stickers to glass & very smooth surfaces:
Follow instructions on standard Vinyl sticker application up to the removal of the backing paper. (Please note that we don't apply application sheet to chalkboard vinyl.)
Spray the sticky side of your vinyl with a mixture of water and a few drops of either dishwashing liquid or baby shampoo and wet thoroughly. A fine misty type spray nozzle is best.
Then spray the glass or area that you are going to apply the vinyl to, as well. Do not be afraid of wetting your vinyl too much.
Apply the vinyl onto the wet area. Move it around until you are happy with the position.
Start from the top centre and wipe all excess water away until all bubbles and creases are smooth. A bank card works well.
Leave the application sheet on the vinyl for at least a couple of hours (overnight is best) before removing it. Once removed you can clean the residue carefully with a soft rag.

Does the sticker adhere to any type of paint?
Our stickers stick well on both enamel and acrylic paint. The smoothness of the surface is the most important.
