We started out doing vinyl graphics and decals for our own sportbikes (motorcycles) and for our friends at the end of 2006 and the response was overwhelming! Since then, we have expanded our business to doing custom signage, motorcycle trailers, business logos for vehicles and buildings, and even wall art! We currently offer over 80 different colors for our cut vinyl decals, and we also offer large format, full color printing as well! Large format, full color printed graphics are ideal for trade shows, businesses, full color logos and graphics, giant wall murals, life-size photos.. and the list goes on! We can create custom decals, logos, and designs specified to your tastes! Feel free to ask any questions. :)

We have two other Decal shops on Etsy. You may recognize some of our things as they are available in both of our shops. Please feel free to check them out!

Please Note: We do NOT recommend MATTE vinyl for textured surfaces as it does not have as strong of an adhesive as our semigloss vinyl does. If you have textured walls (knockdown or similar) and order matte, we cannot responsible for issues during and after installation.


***INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS***

For wall decal installation:
Figure out where you would like your decal(s) placed. Make markings and measurements as needed. Also, be sure your surface is clean and dry (if applying to drywall). If your drywall surface is damp or dirty, clean it using a mild soap and water solution and wait for the surface to dry completely before application.

Now, take hold of your decal. You will notice there are three layers. The transfer paper (which looks like white masking tape), the decal itself, and the paper backing to the decal. (the paper backing will also have the vinyl manufacturer's logo displayed, usually Avery or Oracal).

Gently peel the hard paper backing away from the transfer paper. While you're doing this, the decal should be left sticking to the transfer paper. The adhesive side of both the transfer paper AND your decal will be exposed.

Now, place your decal on the wall with the transfer paper, (sticky side on the wall) and make sure it's where you want it. Take a credit card or some other type of thin, hard plastic, and gently smooth out the surface starting from the middle and moving outward. This will allow the adhesive to stick better, as well as remove any air bubbles in your decal.

Once you have smoothed out your decal, it is safe to remove the transfer paper. Just start at one corner and peel away slowly and close to the surface, making sure your decal doesn't peel up with it. If you notice more air bubbles, gently smooth out the decal again once you have removed the transfer paper. and VOILA! All done! :)

If you are applying to a glass or painted surface:

Make sure your surface is clean and free of any debris or obstructions. Take a mild mixture of soap and water in a spray bottle and completely soak the surface where you want to apply your decal.

Now, follow the above steps to peeling away the paper backing. Once the paper backing has been peeled away, take your water mixture and SOAK the decal and transfer paper. (This allows for corrections if placed incorrectly). Soak the surface where your decal is to be applied again and line up where you want your decal.

Gently place your decal where you want it. If there is an error in placement, the water mixture will allow you to move your decal around until the placement is correct.

Take a credit card or some other type of thin, hard plastic, and gently smooth out the surface starting from the middle and moving outward. This will allow the adhesive to stick better, as well as remove any air bubbles in your decal. Make sure you smooth out any liquid or bubbles underneath the transfer paper. Once this is done, you cannot change the placement of the decal. Allow your decal to dry (with the transfer paper still on.)

Once you have smoothed out your decal and it has dried, it is safe to remove the transfer paper. Just start at one corner and peel away slowly and close to the surface, making sure your decal doesn't peel up with it. If the decal keeps peeling up with the transfer paper, smooth out the surface again (with the transfer paper still attached) and allow it to dry a little bit longer. If you notice more air bubbles, gently smooth out the decal again once you have removed the transfer paper. and VOILA! All done! :)
