Lolistix Wall Decals | FAQ


Will the Lolistix fabric mural decals stick to my walls?

The Lolistix fabric decal designs have the ability to stick to multiple surfaces and textures. We have conducted tests to see how well the decals stick to textures such as orange peel, knock-down, and cinder blocks. All three textures had no problem holding the decals. Your walls must be painted. Bare cinder blocks or bare drywall with no paint or primer will not work.

It is important to realize that many variables can affect the success of a decal. Specifically extreme wall textures, new paint, dust, residue and user application error. For this reason we cannot recommend that the fabric decals be applied above a baby's crib in a position that if they were to fall off they would land into the crib and cause a suffocation hazard. The probability of this happening is extremely low but a baby should never be put at risk for the sake of decor.

The material manufacturer does indicate that occasionally eggshell paint on textured surfaces causes the adhesive to fail. We at Picture Perfect Decals have applied fabric wall decals to eggshell paint many times with nothing but success. But we do feel it necessary to mention this possible problem simply because the manufacturer has noted it.

It is very important that you allow at least 30 days of drying time on a newly painted surface. Bubbles or failure can occur if the paint is still outgassing/flashing off. Also make sure all drywall painted surfaces or a repainted surface have been primed and painted in order to not leave possible residue or peel the paint upon removal. This situation rarely occurs, but we feel it is important to understand the material limits.

Do my walls need to be prepped?

Walls should be primed and painted and then allowed to dry for a minimum of 30 days before applying Lolistix. Walls that have been painted less than 30 days are still out-gassing and may result in the decals falling off of the wall. Walls that have not been primed before painted risk paint peeling when the decals are removed. Lolistix is not responsible for any paint removal issues that may arise. We have conducted many tests and by following our instructions you should not experience any problems.

It is vitally important that your walls are wiped down well and removed of any dust or residue. Use a warm wet washcloth with plain water to wipe down your walls and then allow to dry thoroughly. Do not use any cleaning products such as Windex to wipe down your walls. The residue that these products leave behind will cause failure of your decals. If you absolutely need to use a little soap please ensure at that you have washed away the soap thoroughly and allow to dry completely before applying decals.

How do I apply the decals to the wall?
