ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. My decals do the exact same thing to certain parts of their wall. Some stuff sticks great, other things just fall right off after a day. That paint is probably the reason it's not sticking but I haven't had one like this happen yet. Many paints contain Teflon or other ingredients to keep fingerprints off and that same feature keeps the adhesive from properly adhering.
The white ghosting around where the vinyl was makes me think it was some sort of evaporation - did the dark 'shadow' left by the vinyl disappear after a few hours or overnight? It's strange, because the haze doesn't appear to be where the actual vinyl was, but surrounding the vinyl itself Without being there to install it's hard to know the reason.
The temp could have allowed condensation to get under the decal when they brought it inside from the cold. They may also touch their wall a lot and have a lot of oil soaked or built up on the wall. I see the "haze" on the black decal and it looks like its from them rubbing the decal over and over to get it to stick.
When I have these issues I use flame. Either and lighter if size permits or a big Bernzo TS propane torch. A heat gun will work as well.
Also be careful if you use a lighter as it can leave black carbon all over the wall if not done right. Keep in mind you should never let your customer do this or even recommend it as far as I'm concerned.
Even without knowing the cause of your issues heat should take care of it. I do this with all the time, just be careful and practice first, but not on the customers wall. Not sure what to do if you can't go there in person. I don't do any large wall decals unless I can install for them usually. I've been looking at that "haze" it has to be scuff marks from rubbing all around it.
I see it a good bit from people installing for the first few times. I'm with OW on the stain resistant paints. If you haven't asked them about that you need to. As far as I know there isn't much you can do if that's the paint, besides heat.
Thank you all SO Much for your replies. Otherwise I would believe it was a paint issue. If I didn't use one of the top rated vinyls in the industry Oracal is the best, right??
I am going to ask them to use a blow dryer to heat up the decal and see if that works. On second thought, another idea about the paint. Correct me if I'm wrong but if you use just a regular flat paint, you can't really wipe down the walls with a wet rag or paint is going to wipe off with it? Maybe that depends on paint brand? I know in my old apartment before I moved out I wiped the flat painted walls down because they were dirty, which defeated the purpose because it wiped paint off with it so they just needed painted in the end anyways.
They should wipe them down with a damp and only just damp cloth and let dry. Also what transfer tape do you use. I assume you use the Oracal HT55 made specifically for Just checking the obvious. I have never used a hair dryer before but it may get hot enough for what they're doing.
I'm having a similar issue with a customer. Just wondering what the results were of this, and how the issue was resolved? Did you resend a new decall for free or refund the customer? I unfortunately had to send them a refund. Do you notice the haze in the picture? Someone mentioned it was likely from them rubbing it over and over. I mean, I just can't understand why the bottom of the tree stuck, but nothing else.
They had to have done something different, and what else could they have done besides maybe wet it? Nothing else makes sense to me. Sure, it could be the paint, but then why is the bottom of the tree sticking? They did send the decal back to me, and it wouldn't stick to my wall either. On second thought, I find it interesting that the wall was painted "5 years ago", they said it was that color when they bought the house , but their nursery bedding seems to match it perfectly.
Sure, maybe it was painted like that and they got lucky that they liked the color, and also were having a girl. The paint looks pretty vibrant too for being 5 years old.
So idk, maybe it was fresh paint too. I found this forum because I am a 'customer' having an issue with decals sticking and thought was what being said was interesting. Our walls were painted for two weeks when we added part of our decal. I contacted the seller and they graciously sent me a new decal for free.
Four weeks after wall was painted we gave it another shot. The replacement decal sticks now in almost all areas except a corner so I'm happy with that but the rest of the decals are slowing peeling off of the wall.
My husband installs decals for work on vehicles so I'm pretty confident he knows what he's doing. I too live in a colder weather area but our decals were kept inside for at least a week to get to room temperature.
Our walls have a slight texture to them but not a lot. Paint is a semi-gloss, and not the expensive anti-staining type. Second time around we rubbed rubbing alcohol on the wall as instructed where the decal goes. I think the customer mentioned above could be having legitimate issues with their decals so I wouldn't rule it out that it could be a fault decal. I don't feel like I did anything wrong with the installation of my decals.
They just don't want to stick. The slight wall texture might be it, could you upload a pic? Adhesive spray should most definitely work.
