About

Welcome to Fairy Dust Decals!

A New England girl - I was born & raised in Enfield, Connecticut. In 1988 I graduated from Butera School of Art in Boston, Massachusetts majoring in Sign Painting & Hand Lettering. I worked for a few sign shops North of Boston where I learned gold leafing, pinstriping, painting carved signs, truck lettering & much more. I started my own sign business after the birth of my first son in 1997. Projects consisted of lettering signs, boats & trucks in both paint, gold leaf and vinyl. Work was steady with regular customers in Massachusetts, Maine & New Hampshire. After the birth of our second son, I knew I had to change things up with my business, and try to stay home to take care of two growing boys. Friends and family suggested I open an online store. A late night Google search led me to Etsy. I opened my Etsy store in January of 2009 and have been going strong ever since. Celebrating over seven years selling on Etsy with 11,000+ sales! I have over twenty years of experience designing, cutting & applying vinyl graphics and lettering. Love my Etsy Store ~ hope you do too! Thank you for your business.
Cheers,
Suzanne

USA ORDERS
All decals are made in my studio space located in Groveland, Massachusetts. All orders are shipped via the US Postal Service - first class & priority mail. Tracking numbers are provided to the buyer when the package has shipped. Custom orders and large orders may take a little longer to ship. The US postal service sometimes re-routes packages due to extreme weather issues which may cause delays. Fairy Dust Decals is not responsible for shipping delays. It is very important that I have the correct address. My shipping labels are printed from Etsy, not Paypal.

Your patience is appreciated!

Additional policies and FAQs
PRODUCTION TIME
All of my wall decals are made-to-order, not precut. All decals are made only by me. If I do not have complete information for your order (like color choices and the name) I have to put that order on "hold" and move onto the next order. I will contact you about missing information, but please understand that missing information can delay decal shipment. On average most decals are shipped the same week as ordered or the following week. During busy seasons, I will contact you if I am falling behind on shipments. Your patience is appreciated.

My hours of operation: Monday thru Friday 8:30am-4:30pm.
I ship orders everyday via USPS pickup from my studio.

APPLICATION OF DECALS
Each shipment includes easy-to-read instructions with photos. Every decal order includes a free wall test decal. Please read the instructions first and follow step by step. Decals are shipped flat and in 'sections' for easier installation, not one huge decal which can be overwhelming for a beginner. Fairy Dust Decals are a dry application wall decal - no water or liquid is needed. Do NOT apply decals to textured surfaces. Decals can be applied to many smooth surfaces such as: metal, plastic, glass, mirror, furniture, laptops, wood, marble, tile, plastic cups & so much more!

ABOUT VINYL WALL DECALS
No stencil, no paint, no mess! Fairy Dust Decals are made from thin, self-adhesive matte finish Oracal brand vinyl. When applied to a surface, the design will look painted on your wall. The low-tack adhesive allows for easy removal without surface damage or leftover residue. Wall decals are removable, but are not able to be repositioned or reapplied. My decals do not have a background color or a clear outline. Each decal is cut from a separate roll of vinyl in your chosen colors. Fairy Dust Decals cannot guarantee the condition of every surface and is not responsible for any damage that could occur when decal is removed.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT NEW WALL PAINTS!
Your order includes a free test decal. I highly recommend applying the test decal before applying your main decal and let the decal sit for at least 24-48 hours. Some of the new wall paints may contain a teflon additive or stain blocker which may cause the decal adhesive to fail. This paint additive is the same ingredient that resists fingerprints, crayon, magic marker & also adhesive. This can also be a problem with “VOC free” or environmentally friendly "green" paints. The Oracal vinyl manufacturer suggests waiting at least 6+ weeks to apply decals to newly painted walls. This allows enough time for the paint to “gas out” and not cause decal to peel. Decals will lift off if the paint has not dried completely. Please be patient and use the test decal first.

WALL DECALS & CHILDREN
Please watch infants, toddlers and small children around wall decals. It is advised that children of all ages be monitored closely near wall decals as they could become a choking hazard if peeled off and ingested.

Frequently asked questions

Vinyl Colors

The vinyl color chart is matched to the actual rolls of vinyl. Unfortunately computer monitors, tablets & smartphones often change the color chart appearance because of various screen settings. Vinyl colors look different on light walls and dark walls. A pink flower decal applied to a white wall will always look brighter and pinker than the same pink flower decal applied to a darker wall color. I offer a package of 6 vinyl color samples for only $1.50. My vinyl sample pack has squares of your selected colors and a test decal that you can apply to your walls and gently remove.

Can you send me a mock-up of a name decal?

I do not provide mock-ups for decals. I can provide you a measurement (length & height) for a specific name decal. Every name decal listing shows a sample of the letter style. Unfortunately computer monitors, tablets & smartphones often change the color appearance due to various screen settings. This is why I do not provide mockups, simply because the colors I see on my screen may look completely different when viewing thru the Etsy convos or email

Will the decals stick to my wall?

Every decal order includes a free wall test decal. Please apply the test decal first and observe it for 24-48 hours. If the test decal lifts off, bubbles or wrinkles, it means that the wall paint has not fully dried. Decals will NOT stick to Low VOC, stain-resistant, and the new paint/primer in one wall paints. Both the vinyl manufacturer and paint companies recommend that freshly painted walls should have 6+ weeks of full drying time. A simple test - apply a strip of blue painters masking tape to your wall and see if the tape sticks, if the tape falls off, your painted walls have an additive that repels adhesive and stains.

Fairy Dust Decals is not responsible if your decal will not stick to your wall.

When will I get my order?

A complete address with first and last name is required in order for me to print shipping labels.

I try my best to ship orders the same week or the following week. During very busy times I will contact you if I am running behind on shipping orders. US first class mail has been 3-7 days. Priority mail has been 2-5 days. Please be aware that once a package is shipped it is out of my control when the package will arrive. Delays can occur with the post office. Tracking information is provided for all USA shipments.

Fairy Dust Decals does not offer express, expedited or overnight shipping. Please message me for an international shipping quote for areas outside of the USA.

How do I remove my wall decal?

Lift edge with fingernail and peel back slowly.
All of my decals are made from a thin matte finish vinyl with a low-tack adhesive. Once the decal is removed, it cannot be restuck, repositioned or reused. Fairy Dust Decals is NOT responsible for the condition of the surface that the decal is applied to or removed from.

Can I return or exchange my decal?

Fairy Dust Decals does not accept returns. All of my wall decals are custom cut and cannot be reused. Please read listing descriptions carefully. Photos shown on listings are simply samples of what the decal could look like on a wall. Please measure your wall carefully before placing an order.

Fairy Dust Decals is not responsible if the decal will not stick to your wall.

What type of paint do you recommend for my walls?

The best type of paint is a well known brand that is 100% latex and has an eggshell, satin or semi-gloss finish. Flat finish paints are harder for the wall decals to stick to and may require more effort and patience. Pick a wall paint that does not contain additives such as teflon. The new environmentally friendly paints that are low-odor, low VOC, paint with primer, and stain resistant to crayon & magic marker are also adhesive resistant and have been known to cause problems with wall decals not sticking or peeling off.

Fairy Dust Decals is not responsible if the decal will not stick to your wall.

Fairy Dust Decals ships differently than other decal stores...

99% of my wall decals ship FLAT & packaged in rigid cardboard mailers. Many decal sellers roll their decals and ship in tubes which may cause unnecessary bubbles and wrinkles. My decals also ship in sections, not one huge decal. It may be overwhelming for a customer who has never applied a wall decal before, to receive a huge rolled up decal. Decals that are shipped as seperate pieces also allow the buyer more freedom of how they want to apply their decal designs.

Do you make custom designs?

Yes I do! However I will not copy other Etsy seller's designs or reproduce trademarked logos. Please be aware that custom decal requests may take longer than simply purchasing an existing design. Please do not purchase an existing decal design and then request a bunch of changes with that purchase.

Custom and personalized orders

Information (like names, dates, colors) can be typed into the note section located on the order/payment page. You can also send me a convo with all of the personalized information.

Please remember that wall decals are a do-it-yourself decoration project. Reading & following the step-by-step instructions in full is very important to have success with your decal project
