What application surfaces do you recommend?Updated 2 years ago

We recommend that our self-adhesive peel and stick vinyl wall decals be placed on smooth wall surfaces. Textured walls will disturb the adhesive and limit the timespan the item will stick to the wall surface. For customers with textured walls we suggest mounting the item to a smooth flat surface then mounting that surface to the wall, framing the product or purchasing an additional Low Tack adhesive that is vinyl compatible and spraying it to the back of the product before placing it on the wall.

  • Recommended Surfaces & Environments:Smooth Walls
  • Painted Drywall
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Sanded Wood (without lacquer)
  • Inside, temperature controlled environments
  • NOT Recommended Surfaces or Environments:Freshly painted walls (Wait 30 days after painting before you put up your Fathead)
  • Textured Walls
  • Unpainted drywall
  • Brick
  • Cinder Block
  • Porous, textured paneling
  • Outside, non-temperature controlled environments
