    This was ordered on 6/19 and arrived 7/9 - certainly not in a timely manner. The lettering would not transfer so it was totally unusable. I contacted the seller for return and refund on 7/22, but no response. I would not order from them again.

Additional policies and FAQs
We cut our designs out of glossy two-year calendar vinyl that is perfect for smooth, hard, clean surfaces. We cannot guarantee the results of your vinyl decal transfer if you apply it to dirty, rough, flexible or otherwise unrecommended surfaces.

Q: Can I reposition my vinyl decal?
A: No. All our items are cut from standard calendered sign vinyl, so once it goes on a surface, it cannot be removed without destroying the decal.

Q: Will removing the decal harm the surface I put it on?
A: There is a 99.9% chance that removing the decal will not damage the surface you put it on. There are rare instances where certain wall coverings are not compatible with the vinyl adhesive -- if you're not sure about the surface you plan to put your decal on, feel free to ask us and we'll help you to the best of our ability!

Q: What is the difference between Matte vinyl and Gloss vinyl?
A: Gloss vinyl has a shinier surface and is mostly an all-purpose vinyl (with some exceptions) that can be used both indoors and outdoors as long as it is applied properly and the adhesive is allowed to set for a few hours. Once applied, Gloss vinyl is fully weather proof (hurricanes, volcanoes and apocalyptic happenings notwithstanding).

Matte vinyl has a finish that resembles eggshell paint and is used mostly to mimic the look of a painted design on interior walls. This vinyl is waterproof and, as far as we can tell, greese-proof (so you can put it on the back splash behind a stove top, for example). Matte vinyl is a bit thinner than the Gloss stock, and might not stand up to outdoor weather conditions quite as well.
