Graphic Décor recommend that any new painted wall or surface should be allowed to dry naturally for a period of 14 days before graphic is applied.

 

 

STEP 1: PREP YOUR WALL

prep your wall
  • Proper preparation of your wall is critical!
  • Repair any visible defects, smooth out bumps and patch holes to ensure your wall is smooth and flat.
  • If possible, remove all picture hooks, light fixtures and switch plates.
  • Wash of any dirt, hair, dust or residue from old wallpaper with a dry cloth or a duster. Do NOT use water!
  • A perfectly clean wall will help the adhesive backing to keep its stickiness if repositioning is required.

 

STEP 2: GETTING READY

getting ready
  • Open the sturdy Graphic Décor packaging tube. Inside you will find your wall mural.
  • Look for the panel number on the back of each one. Panel#1 is the first panel on the left.
  • Unroll all panels and lay them flat on the floor, the printed side facing the ceiling.
  • You may notice creases and/or bubbles as you unroll the panels. No worries, this is normal. The creases will disappear once the mural is flattened on the wall.
  • If you purchased a wall mural that is smaller than your actual wall size, take the measurements of your wall to center it. Then draw a guideline, just like you would to hang a poster or framed photograph.

 

STEP 3: PEEL 

peel
  • Peel off the liner paper a few centimetres only across the top of the first panel.
  • Do NOT peel off the entire liner paper all at once.

STEP 4: STICK IT (PART 1)

  • Remember that the success of the installation will depend on properly placing the first panel.
  • Stick the top left corner of the panel to the top left corner of your wall. This is the easiest place to start.
  • Using a smoothing tool or squeegee, smooth the top of the panel onto the wall. Do NOT use pressure to avoid any scratches.

STEP 4: STICK IT (PART 2)

  • Peel off the rest of the panel by gradually and evenly pulling down the liner, a few inches at a time.
  • We recommend having the other person hold the bottom of the panel as you work your way down.
  • Once the first panel is applied, and if necessary, remove any bubbles by gently pushing them outward with the squeegee.

STEP 5: ADDITIONAL PANELS

matching
  • Start by aligning Panel#2 to Panel#1. Simply stick the panel against the edge of the first one, by matching the pattern of the mural.
  • Follow STEP 4 above to apply the rest of Panel#2.
  • Repeat the same process to apply all additional panels.

STEP 6: TRIM OVERAGE

trimming
  • Once all panels have been applied, SLOWLY trim all the overage with an utility knife with a sharp blade. Follow the edges of your wall or ceiling to do so. You can also use a ruler to cut through a straight line.
  • If needed, repeat this process to cut around outlets, fuse boxes, windows, doors, etc.

STEP 7: REMOVAL PROCESS

remove
  • Slowly and gently pull the panels from the wall. Use your hand to gradually hold back the wall mural during this process.
  • To avoid any damage to your wall while removing, keep the wall mural as flat and parallel to the wall as possible.
  • We highly recommend to keep the backing liner (wax paper), so you can re-apply the wall mural to it. It will protect the adhesive from losing its stickiness and allow you to re-use your wall mural.
