Wall Vinyl’s are a great cost effect solution, using simple solid coloured shapes and vinyl cut lettering can make a dramatic impact. There are many types with different grades of adhesive strengths on the market too; we can even wrap the face of a radiator! We always specify the right solution for that specific environment.

Here are a few helpful tips to see if this material is the best solution for your space:

  • Do a masking tape test – Leave a piece about 50cm long over night, if it is still looks like it did when you applied it then great! If it has peeled or fallen off then we should complete a sample test using our vinyl.
  • A textured wall may be better with a brick vinyl solution.
  • Matt chalky paints can repel vinyl, so if you were going to redecorate we would suggest a satin or gloss finish. The longer you can leave it after the last coat the better as it can take up to 6 weeks for the paint to properly cure!
  • If the wall is showing any signs of damp, or the area will be affected by a heat source then direct to wall vinyl probably isn’t the right material. A vinyl wrapped diBond (metal) board cut to shape would be perfect!
