FAQ: What type of Walls will Our Custom Vinyl Wall Decals stick to?
An excellent question that is asked regularly is: “What type of walls will our Custom Vinyl Wall Decals stick to”?
Well… in this blog post we intend to answer that question.
Truthfully, Our custom vinyl wall decals stick to 95% of the walls that we or our customers attempted to stick the Wall Decal onto.
In the end there are certain elements that effected whether or not our Decals stick:
- Texture (Heavily-textured walls in particular)
Our decals work best on smooth, flat surfaces. Which is a no-brainer for practically anyone who has played with stickers in their lifetime…
Our decals stick to almost any smooth or lightly textured surface including:
- Painted walls,
- Wood (watch us apply A Dandelion Wall Decal to Pallet Wood here).
But for those that haven’t here is a video that demonstrates How to Apply A Wall Decal.
Slightly Textured Walls
Below are images of slightly textured walls that our decals will have no issues sticking to.
Moderate to Heavy Textured Walls
For obvious reasons, our Decals can not properly adhere to a wall that is moderate to heavily textured. But if you are still interested in purchasing a decal then you can always test it out first.

VOC free paint
A new type of paint has hit the market labeled as “VOC Free Paint”. We have not had any issues with our Decals sticking to these walls, however there are reports of other decals are failing to adhere to the paint.
Should you encounter any issues though you are more than welcome to return the Decal for a full refund within 7 days of Purchase. Want to read more about our Guarantee? Click Here.
What is a VOC?
VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compound and as defined by Wikipedia:
“Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at ordinary room temperature. Their high vapor pressure results from a low boiling point, which causes large numbers of molecules to evaporate or sublimate from the liquid or solid form of the compound and enter the surrounding air. For example, formaldehyde, which evaporates from paint, has a boiling point of only –19 °C (–2 °F).
VOCs are numerous, varied, and ubiquitous. They include both human-made and naturally occurring chemical compounds. Most scents or odours are of VOCs. VOCs play an important role in communication between plants, and messages from plants to animals. Some VOCs are dangerous to human health or cause harm to the environment. Anthropogenic VOCs are regulated by law, especially indoors, where concentrations are the highest. Harmful VOCs typically are not acutely toxic, but have compounding long-term health effects. Because the concentrations are usually low and the symptoms slow to develop, research into VOCs and their effects is difficult.
So that new plastic smell is from harmful VOCs?
Yes, the outgassing of the VOCs is what creates that smell. Your infant and children should not be exposed to these harmful substances.
That’s why our decals are free of these harmful compounds and are absolutely odorless out of the box. Read more about that [here].
