Preparing Your wall
Only apply to a smooth, dry and clean surface – The most common areas include interior walls, doors and windows. It is NOT recommended to use our wall decals on textured or porous surfaces like brick, cement, render, etc. 
If you are concerned about your surface, we suggest that you test the area for a couple of days first. 
It is highly recommended to prime your wall if your surface has:
An existing paint job containing Teflon (some wash and wear paints contain Teflon)
An old, damaged, cracking or bubbling existing paint job
Wall surfaces with uneven surfaces, including cracks and panelling

Existing wallpaper or decals should be removed from wall surface prior to the installation of new whimsy wall decals. Clear all furniture and other obstructions from your work area. Using a drop sheet to protect flooring is highly recommended. Note: Your wall surfaces should be clean, smooth, dry and free of debris. 

If your wall is freshly painted, we recommend allowing 3 weeks to ensure the paint is completely dry before applying your wall decal. 

Use a warm, damp cloth or sponge to thoroughly clean the surface before application. Allow to completely dry. Do not use any chemicals or cleaning solutions. Remove any picture hooks which falls under the planned decal area.

Applying Whimsy wall decals
It’s recommended to have an extra pair of hands for application. Depending on the size you need to someone to guide you to align to the required location on your wall. Starting from a corner, gently peel the entire decal from the backing liner. Do not allow the adhesive backing to come into contact with anything other than the wall. Try to avoid the adhesive layer from folding onto itself, however if it does, you can separate it by gently pulling it apart using clean hands. It should not damage the decal or adhesive.

Apply the decal very lightly to the wall to check positioning. If you are unhappy with the decal position, gently remove and reposition. This can be done multiple times, however if the adhesive collects too much dust or dirt, it may lose the stickability.

Once you are happy with the position, start smoothing the decal out with your hand. 

Note: Do not use hard flat edge to squeeze any air bubble. A clean hand pressure is enough to squeeze any air bubble.

Whimsy wall decals can be overlapped, clustered, folded and cut without damaging the decals or your wall. They are also opaque so can be used over any colour paint.

If there are any bubbles or wrinkles present, you can lightly press or smooth them out, or just peel back that area and re-apply. If a bubble re-appears over the next day or two, pressing and lightly rubbing should remove it. Bubbles may continue to occur if oil, dirt, or dust has not been removed properly from the surface, if the wall had been painted within 20 days of application or cleaning chemicals were used during preparation. The backing liner is highly recommended to be rolled and stored in a dust free are, it will be required if you decide to store or transport whimsy decals to a new location or for future use.

Removing Whimsy wall decals 
No residue will be left behind after removal. Please ensure you slowly and gently peel back the decals from the wall, as ripping may cause brittle or freshly painted walls to flake. Whimsy wall decals can be re-applied to your backing liner and stored safely by rolling carefully for future use or it in a different location.

Applying Whimsy wallpaper
Working left to right, starting with sheet 1, peel and fold back approximately 20cm of the backing liner. Do not remove the entire backing sheet. Crease the peel paper back with pressure so it sits flat.

Using a step ladder, line up the top edge with your ceiling or cornice. Allow around 10mm overhang at the top of the wall for uneven walls. Once aligned, gently apply the top of the panel onto the wall. Slowly and evenly peel back the backing sheet. Continue to smooth out gently with your hands. This process will require 2 people. One person should peel back the liner while the other smooths downwards with their hands. Work your way down and outwards to remove any air bubbles. Allow the wallpaper fall naturally into it’s place. Do not pull or stretch the wallpaper into place as this will result in bubbles and a poor finish. You should be able to feel any imperfections with your hands as you smooth. If you wish to re-align your wallpaper, simply peel back and reposition the panel.

All additional sheets are to applied in the same way as Sheet 1.

NOTE: Each sheet has a 10mm overlap onto the next panel. To line up the image on your wallpaper, simply align at the top, whilst person 2 aligns at the middle and bottom. Remember you can remove and reposition the panel at any time.

When all panels have been applied, use a very sharp knife to trim any excess wallpaper.

Trimming can be done freehand or you can use a straight edge metal ruler to assist in keeping a straight line. Using your sharp knife trim off the excess along the top and bottom of the wall. 

Note: Carefully trim additional wallpaper around any switches or sockets by smoothing the wallpaper in a downward motion and crease it along the top of the switch or object. Using your knife, cut a cross in the center of the switch or socket. Carefully make this cross bigger so that it reaches each corner of the switch. Firmly smooth the wallpaper up against each side of the switch. You can now trim around the switch and replace any covers. 

Removing Whimsy wallpaper 
No residue will be left behind after removal. Please ensure you slowly and gently peel back the wallpaper from the wall, as ripping may cause brittle or freshly painted walls to flake. 

Whimsy wallpaper can be re-applied to your backing liner and stored safely by rolling carefully for future use or it in a different location.
