Great item! We used it to monogram the aisle runner for our wedding and the transfer was easy!
From Hobby to Leader of the Industry, an American Dream!
Dave and I used to ride our sportbikes at the motorcycle racing track and he always wanted decals for his bike so it looked more like a race bike. We could never find the ones he wanted, but a friend of ours had a little hobby cutter (Jan 2007), and he let us borrow it. Because of Dave's background in graphics, he got it working right away, and we started making our own decals. After realizing the potential of the cutter, we bought our own and began selling them to our friends for their bikes, cars, businesses. (small stuff, names, little logos, etc)
Fast forward a year, a friend of mine asked if we made wall decals, and we were like, er what are wall decals? I began experimenting with our material, and turns out, it sticks to the wall too! We started selling our decals on Etsy as Badass Custom Decals, and 2 months later, we created Dali Decals because it was more 'family friendly'. (The name Dali is a combination of both of our names, David and Alicia.) That was summer of 2008. A month later, we were so busy with our Etsy sales, selling wall decals, that I had to quit my job as a high school teacher, and pursue our decal biz full time. Right after I quit teaching, we launched our site, www.dalidecals.com and shortly afterwards, Dave quit his full time job which was mostly web development and programming.
We were working out of our house in Coral Springs, FL at the time, and moved to Asheville, NC for 1 year, thinking we wanted to get out of Florida. NC was nice, but after growing rapidly and learning the hard way about state income taxes there, we made a u-turn and headed back to FL. We decided that you visit NC for vacations, you don't live there!
Sooo, we settled in Jacksonville FL in February 2010 and we just LOVE it here.. We now have about 20 employees in just under 10k square feet in 2 warehouses, and we're ready to expand into a 3rd warehouse space before the end of 2012. Things are good! We love what we do, and we love that we can continue to do this, support ourselves, and all of our employees in the process.

Dali Decals manufactures custom decals that are made to order. We may occasionally stock certain popular decals, but we typically do not stock inventory since every order is manufactured according to the specifications supplied by the customer. Dali Decals is not responsible for spelling or typographical errors made by the customer. Before placing your order please be sure you have accurate measurements for your decal and review your order during confirmation. Each decal is manufactured to specific sizes, vinyl material, design and quantities. Therefore Dali Decals is unable to issue refunds or exchanges. All sales are final.
If a decal has been damaged during installation, a replacement may be ordered at a discount. Dali Decals is not responsible for problems or issues with the surface, surface prep, application or installation process.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
As everything is made to order, we will not honor cancellations once an order has been placed.

Additional policies and FAQs
We DO recommend our matte vinyl for apartments, dorm rooms, and dance floors (for weddings, receptions, parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, etc) as our matte colors are intended for easier removal and shorter term applications. However, regardless of the finish you select, our decals should stay in place until you decide to take them off your walls.
There are a couple differences that stand out between the matte and semigloss finishes. The matte will have a flat finish, whereas the semigloss (any of the colors that don't say matte will be semigloss) will have a shinier finish. The matte has a more easily removable adhesive, and the semigloss has a stronger adhesive, meant for longer term application, (both indoors and out) and is better for textured walls. Please keep in mind that with semigloss colors, touch ups may be required to the paint underneath, due to the stronger adhesive of the material.
If you have texture on your walls, we really recommend trying out test decals and/or color samples first if you're not in a time crunch. :) They can be ordered right on our website! (Contact us for more ordering info.)
The vinyl that Dali Decals uses for all of their decals has been certified a Green Product by Det Norske Veritas, for meeting certification standards for process and environmental impact. The raw vinyl, manufactured by Orafol Europe and its US subsidiary, Oracal USA, has the most green process of any vinyl manufacturer, and as a company are constantly looking for ways to improve their process, to reduce waste, pollution, and offset their environmental footprint.
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 (this can take more than 24 hours if you live in a humid area.)
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 the enclosed squeegee, 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 metal 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 the enclosed squeegee, 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! :)
