Refunds and Exchanges
ALL SALES FINAL - NO REFUNDS/EXCHANGES
This policy guarantees each customer receives a brand-new item, and not a used return. We're not a big box retailer; we don't stock inventory. Each item is custom-created upon order—handmade to YOUR exact specifications—customized by product type, design, color, size (and often personalized by name/monogram, too!) To assist buyers with making an informed purchase: we provide detailed sizing information, product descriptions, and plenty of product images—plus FREE color swatches/FREE test samples/FREE design previews upon request (when applicable.) Please take advantage of these extras, and ask questions before purchasing. We're dedicated to helping you find the perfect product for your needs. As our feedback shows, going above-and-beyond is what sets us apart from the rest—let's make it a win-win experience for both of us!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
VINYL: NO REFUNDS/EXCHANGES due to size, color, font, etc. Before purchasing: we're glad to show a design preview (message: design # + color choice + other details.) If color-matching, please request a FREE color swatch. Sadly, not all surfaces are vinyl-friendly: please request a FREE test sample if you want to test the surface for vinyl compatibility.

EXCEPTION (excludes fabric decals and digitally printed vinyl)
Decal failure due to paint/vinyl compatibility: contact us within 14 days of purchase, attaching a digital photo showing the issue. At our discretion, we may issue an in-store credit or partial refund (less 20% material usage fee - less original shipping fee.) We reserve the right to refuse any return.

INSTALLATION OOPS? Yes, agreed, it's frustrating! (Hopefully you had a partner to blame? haha!) Step away...relax...then contact us. For a small, easy fix (a letter, comma, etc.) we will send a replacement, no charge. For bigger do-overs, we offer a discount toward the purchase of a replacement decal (SAME design.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ART PRINTS: NO REFUNDS/EXCHANGES due to size, color, font, etc. Prints WILL BE DARKER than it appears on-screen—but colors are richer, vivid, and far more beautiful than shown on-screen, too!

Before purchasing: we're glad to show a design preview (message: design # + color choice + other details.) Color-matching? Please contact us.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CHANGE YOUR MIND? WRONG SIZE? COLOR?
Again, due to the custom nature of handmade items, we're unable to accept returns. We're sorry the product won't fit your needs. Feel free to re-gift or re-sell the item. We understand sizing/color mistakes happen; and, as a good-will gesture, we offer a discount toward the purchase of a replacement (SAME product/design + DIFFERENT size or color.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM US:
"To err is human"—so if we mess up, please accept our apology! We promise to make it right by correcting/re-sending the order. Additionally, in the rare event an item is damaged in transit: contact us within 14 days of purchase + submit a digital photo showing the damage + keep original packaging materials. We will file a postal claim on your behalf, and assist with product replacement.

We're committed to providing excellent customer service. So if you encounter an issue or concern not addressed, please contact us.

Q: What is the difference between MATTE and GLOSSY VINYL?
A: When comparing products, realize many companies use permanent, glossy vinyl for interior applications. How to tell? The pictured vinyl is glossy, shiny, or the description states "removal requires a blow-dryer/heat source." Rest assured, we offer the right product for the right job: matte (removable) vinyl for interiors, glossy (permanent) vinyl for cars. Additionally, we NEVER use inferior, “generic” vinyl (infamous for causing damage.) Sure, we could skimp on our end, but we won’t! We meticulously produce each piece as if it were our own. We LOVE what we do—producing high-quality products at affordable prices—and it shows!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
APPLYING DECALS - INSTALLATION TIPS:

OVER-SIZED DECALS:
Grab a partner—a 2nd set of hand is very helpful! Tape the top (or side) of the decal very well (so it doesn't shift!) Then, cut the decal into manageable sections, and apply the decal in sections vs. the entire decal. As long as you leave the decal taped/hinged, everything still lines up!

REMOVING TRANSFER TAPE:
• LETTERS: Pull the Transfer Tape from the left to the right (with the direction of the letters, not against the direction of the letters.)
• NUMBERS: Pull the Transfer Tape from right to left (with the direction of the numbers, not against the direction of the numbers.)

WATER TRICK for REMOVING TRANSFER TAPE:
(This tip works for paper tape—not the clear tape!) Spritz/sponge the Transfer Tape with water (determine if your surface can get wet, of course!) Allow it to saturate for a few minutes. Voila! The tape loosens, and removes easily.

Q: THE TRANSFER TAPE PULLED AWAY & THE LETTERING REMAINS ON THE BACKING!
A: DO NOT PULL the transfer tape from the FRONT side; the transfer tape may lift without grabbing the vinyl lettering. Should this happen, simply re-place the transfer tape against the vinyl lettering again, and re-burnish (rub) to restore the transfer tape and vinyl lettering. Proceed again, placing the product TRANSFER TAPE side down. Carefully peel the backing paper away. The transfer tape and the vinyl lettering should remain together. If not, stop and repeat the previous steps. Slow and steady wins the race...take your time! Remember: PEEL THE BACKING PAPER AWAY...DON'T LIFT OR PULL THE TRANSFER TAPE!

Q: AIR BUBBLES!
A: If you work slowly—and don't quickly "slap" the vinyl lettering onto the surface—you probably won't encounter this problem. Large trapped air bubbles may be released by rubbing and working them to the vinyl edge. Smaller bubbles often "gas out" in a week or two. Pesky bubbles can be released by pricking with a fine-tipped needle, then smoothing the vinyl. Remember: bubbles that seem obvious close-up—viewed with eagle eyes—may not be so noticeable when viewed from a normal distance!

Q: OOPS — I MESSED UP!
A: Since vinyl is a one-time use product, it's frustrating to mess up! For a small, easy fix (a letter, comma, etc.) we will send a replacement, no charge. For bigger do-overs, we offer a discount toward the purchase of a replacement decal (same product/same design.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CAR & BOAT DECALS
Installation uses the same technique as Wall Vinyl. Car & boat decals may be installed on any smooth, wax-free surface including glass, Plexiglass, painted surfaces, fiberglass, plastics, etc.

• On freshly painted vehicles, allow sufficient time for the paint to cure. Contact your paint manufacturer for specific cure times. Typically, the cure time can range from 45 – 90 days.
• Wait a few days before washing or waxing a newly installed decal.

CARE:
• When washing decals, first rinse away sediments on the graphic. Then, using a sponge, apply a solution of water and mild car wash detergent. Clean the graphic from top to bottom, allowing the dirty water to run downward. Always rinse the graphic with clean water, ensuring that you do not spray the graphic at a sharp angle (this may cause the edges to peel or lift.) Allow the graphic to air dry or use a microfiber cloth.

• Decals may be protecting by applying a silicone or Teflon based polish that has been designed for vehicle graphics.

• Avoid the use of fuels, carnauba-based wax, as well as dirt, small rocks, mechanical brush washing, pressure washing, and turbo-pressure nozzles. These may cause chips, peeling or lifting of decal edges, scratches, fading, and dulling of the decal surface.

REMOVAL:
Removing permanent vinyl requires either a heat source (blow dryer) to loosen the adhesive, or a chemical product designed for decal removal (check automotive section or auto store.) Once removed, there will be some adhesive residue; clean with a citrus-based cleaner, or a product such as Goo-Gone.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CAR VINYL TIPS:

• COLOR: On car windows, white is the most visible color. Likewise, yellow attracts attention. Generally speaking, light colors offer best visibility.

• READABILITY: A manuscript (print) style of lettering is easiest to read; choose a bold or block style font. Use script (cursive) lettering sparingly, as an accent.

• VISIBILITY: For advertising messages on car window, we recommend a minimum of 2" tall lettering. As a general rule, add 1" of letter height for every 10 feet of viewing distance. For example, 3" letters are best viewed at 30'-up to 100'...4" letters are best viewed at 40'-up to 150', etc. We recommend 4" type for headlines, and 3" type for website advertising.
1. Keep the text short, brief—memorable—since drivers don't write while driving.
2. Capitalize when appropriate.
3. Use uppercase & lowercase letters to improve readability and enhance appeal.
4. Add a border to increase reading speed by 26%.
5. Add a second color to increase retention by 78%. Adding color contrast to key words makes them "pop."
6. Add a graphic to convey information (a lawnmower graphic for lawn service, etc.)

Frequently asked questions

Color Choices

Choose from 54+ colors (shown in last picture—on some devices, you'll need to swipe the 1st picture to scroll.) Click to enlarge the picture.

Color matching? If you'd like a swatch of the vinyl material: message your mailing address + color choice(s). Etsy message: http://etsy.me/1iNPeLq

Size

The size is given in the listing's description (after the first paragraph) + it's shown in the listing's 3rd picture (so you can visualize exactly how the design fits within the height/width space.) All measurements are given in inches: height x width.

• Please measure decal against your space. Does it fit?
• Need it BIGGER or smaller? Contact us for a custom size.

Purchase the wrong size? Due to the custom nature of handmade items, we do not refund/exchange. However, we gladly offer a discounted replacement (must be SAME product/design + NEW size/color.)

(Optional) Request a Digital Proof

Before purchasing: Would you like to see a digital mockup of the design, shown in your color choice? Or maybe you'd like to see a monogram or name typset in the font shown in the listing? Absolutely! (BTW: Most companies don't offer digital proofs—or they charge for the proof—however, we provide FREE proofs to help you shop with certainty.)

To request a digital proof, please message:

Decal Installation

1. Prep 2. Place 3. Peel 4. Press…PERFECT!
We provide detailed directions, a video link, and unlimited support—however, this product is installed by YOU, the purchaser. If you're unsure about the installation: please use a professional installer (we can help locate one in your area.) Vinyl is a single-use product; it's removable but NOT repositionable, reusable, or refundable.
• Each order includes detailed 'How-To-Apply' directions.
• Watch 'How-To Apply' video: http://bit.ly/1Kx571x
• Installation Tip: Please use a partner during installation. :)
• Applying vinyl should be quick-and-easy. Should there be difficulty: STOP! Contact us for help: http://etsy.me/1iNPeLq
• Installation 'oopsie'? Contact us for a discounted replacement.

Decal Compatibility - Walls & Paint

Vinyl is NOT compatible with all paint types/surfaces. Please TEST...Don't guess! FREE Tester: http://etsy.me/1iNPeLq

DRYWALL:
The surface must be clean (dust-free), dry, and completely cured (allow newly painted surfaces to outgas for 3 weeks!) Vinyl is compatible with most SMOOTH to semi-smooth, non-porous surfaces (lightly-textured walls, wallpaper, etc.) Vinyl is most compatible with semi-gloss/gloss enamel paint.

Vinyl DOES NOT work with rough, uneven, porous, highly-textured surfaces (brick, stucco, etc.) Avoid latex paint, matte or flat wall paint (these paints act like dust), "green" paint (zero VOC, VOC-free) or paint with anti-graffiti agents/stain blockers (these paints have additives that'll release vinyl from wall.)

Decal Compatibility - Glass Windows, Metal, Laptops, Canvas

GLASS (mirrors, car windows): Zero compatibility issues.

METAL: must be smooth, non-dimpled surface.

LAPTOP: Vinyl works great placed directly on laptop surface. It also works on leather cases (it won't work with neoprene/fabric-type cases.) With certain plastic cases (silicone, rubberized plastic): the decal may/may not work. It may be resistant to being applied (taking more effort to coax the decal off the transfer tape/release onto plastic surface—but it'll hold well once applied)—while other times, the vinyl and plastic are flat-out incompatible, no matter how hard you try!

CANVAS: Vinyl only works when canvas fibers are sealed with 2+ layers of Mod Podge or acrylic craft paint.

Decal Care & Removal

• CLEAN: lightly dust or wipe with damp cloth—avoid chemicals, scrubbing, abrasives.

• REMOVE: lift the decal's edge to break the bond, then peel with fingers. This vinyl is designed to remove cleanly (no residue) from surfaces that are in good condition. Although unlikely: whenever applying something to a painted surface, there's the slight chance that a minor paint touch-up may be needed.
