The works: Pop & Lolli vs the other's
How do you apply Pop & LolliTM chic fabric wall stickers?
Unlike common regular vinyl decals, Pop & LolliTM chic fabric wall stickers are ultra easy to install and play with. No instructions needed. No tools necessary. Just peel and stick.
Application is a simple 3-step process of peel, place, and then smooth it with your hand. It can be rearranged and easily removed numerous times. Freshly painted walls should be completely dry before applying the product. Pop & Lolli requires to wait at least 60 days after painting before you apply our fabric decals to the newly painted wall. Even though the paint will feel dry to the touch soon after it's been painted, it is still wet and will react with the eco-friendly, non-toxic water-based adhesive making the edges of the decals not stick properly. Drying time depends on the environment, the time of year, the number of layers of paint and the paint brand used.
For the very large and oversized stickers with some complicated shapes, expect to need a helping hand or two, place it on the wall and start from one end to gently smooth the sticker out as you work your way to the other end.
After the decals are placed into position on the wall. We may suggest to use a sturdy object, like a credit card, and firmly apply pressure on it smoothing back and forth over the entire decal to firmly press it in place. This will ensure no loose edges
Since our collections arrive on large oversized sheets of paper, it may be sometimes difficult to work with such a big sheet. We suggest you cut each decal from the backing sheet whilst still on the backing paper. For storing purposes later on, we may also suggest to write on the back of these backing cut-outs with a pencil, not a sharpie/marker, which character/decal need to be returned to it to make sure it fits properly on the backing during storage.
Larger decals, like the trees, we would recommend you do the step above. Then hold it in place right where it needs to be positioned on the wall WITH the backing paper still on. Peel the backing paper (a small bit only) away from the decal at the top, and fold it over. Place the small exposed sticky side of the decal on the wall and with the one hand gently pull the folded backing paper more and more away from the decal whilst at the same time smoothing down the decal and pressing firmly against the wall with the other hand.
If there happen to be a few small bubbles (trapped air) after you placed the decal on the wall. Do not fear! No need to remove it and try again. Simply use a sharp object, like a needle or pin tack and prick it gently to make a tiny hole. Then simply smooth out with your thumb. The hole will help the air escape and ensure you have a perfectly smooth decal.
WALLPAPER APPLICATION TIPS
It is important to note, that since all our products are all made on demand, that SLIGHT color variations can occur, if all wallpaper not ordered at the exact same time. Time of year of production, transit time, temperature variations during transit can all play in role in a very small color difference between product runs. We thus advice to calculate exactly how many sheets you need, to be able to order it all at once. No returns accepted on Wallpaper.
Trim the sheets' backing paper to the edges of the wallpaper and or cut to size and width required upon pre-measuring your wall. Make sure when you cut the wallpaper to reduce the width of sheet to match your wall, to keep in mind the seam to align with the sheet next to it to ensure a seamless match between sheets.
Hold the sheet in place right where it needs to be positioned on the wall WITH the backing paper still on, starting at the TOP of the wall. Peel the backing paper (a small bit only) away from the decal at the top, and fold it over. Ensure it aligns to the top of the wall and sides on the edges and place the small exposed sticky side of the wallpaper on the wall and with the one hand gently pull the folded backing paper more and more away from the decal whilst at the same time smoothing down the wallpaper and pressing firmly against the wall with the other hand.
If there happen to be a few small bubbles (trapped air) after you placed the wallpaper on the wall. Do not fear! No need to remove it and try again, unless the trapped air is a lot. Simply use a sharp object, like a needle or pin tack and prick it gently to make a tiny hole. Then simply smooth out with your thumb. The hole will help the air escape and ensure you have a perfectly smooth wallpaper.
