Designer wall decals made in Australia!

Vinyl Design is our Australian adventure and this is our story...

When Italian-born architects Julia Fantini and Stefano Cottini moved to Sydney in 2009 for work, they immediately fell in love with the sparkling harbourside city. So, with the sun in their eyes and the wind on their cheeks, they took a lease on a Sydney apartment, and like most creative couples, began dreaming up ways to add some personality to their space. Sadly their real estate agent was not sympathetic: the terms of the lease were clear. NO paint, NO wallpaper and NO banging in hooks.
Not to be deterred, these enterprising Italians put their heads together and decided on a solution: removable vinyl wall decals, to spice up their decor. Only problem was, there wasn’t much in the way of vinyl decals for adults available in Australia – it was mostly a kids’ thing. So they created their own.
And how they loved the effect! And so did their visitors! After some prompting from friends, Julia and Stefano worked up a small range, produced a limited run and started selling them online.
Within a year, Julia had left her full-time job to concentrate on Vinyl Designs (learning a whole lot about small business in the process!). After repeated requests from customers, they branched out into kids’ motifs and now their range includes options for all ages and tastes.

Julia describes the Vinyl Design approach as “fresh and humorous” first and foremost. They’re big on whimsy, with nature motifs like plants, florals and animals. She and Stefano enjoy creating funny characters like their chubby birds, echidnas, sausage dogs - designs that bring a smile to people’s faces.

At the same time, their background in architecture has inspired clean, urban designs like their barcode, Eiffel Tower and city skyline. Retro is represented with old-school computer game characters, and Japanese motifs abound: geishas, samurai, cranes, cherry blossoms and lanterns.
Kids can enjoy robots, elephants, bunnies, penguins and cute wall height charts featuring giraffes and monkeys.
There’s also a selection of chalkboard decals so you can write your shopping list or reminders on a wall via a charming teapot or birdhouse cut-out.

Vinyl Design decals use a low-tack adhesive which means they’re easily removed from walls without stripping the paint, thereby keeping real estate agents around Australian happy.
What makes Julia and Stefano happy is knowing that lots and lots of satisfied Vinyl Design customers are now enjoying their designs at home, (which they know from the flow of positive feedback).

Additional policies and FAQs

All our stickers are made of semi permanent matt vinyl: this means they will last 5 years at least.... but no worries…if you get tired you can remove them from the wall any time and they won’t leave any marks. Vinyl is a very thin and flexible material, it can be applied on every smooth, clean surface and on edges or corners.


1)On which surfaces can I apply my Vinyl Wall Design wall sticker?

You can apply your sticker on any clean, smooth surface like walls, doors, windows, also on timber floor, tables or mirrors. Stickers are not suitable for wallpaper due to the fact that they would damage it on removal.
If your walls are rendered or porous the vinyl won’t adhere.

2)If my wall is freshly painted can I apply the stickers?

We advise that you wait a couple of weeks before applying your wall sticker.

3)Can I apply my sticker in the bathroom?

Yes, just make sure there is no humidity or steam at the moment of application.

4)Can I apply the stickers on my own?

Yes, you can, with patience and accuracy for bigger designs. We suggest you to position your sticker on the wall with some masking tape to be sure you’re happy with the composition, then start the process of peeling and sticking. All the instruction on how to apply will be provided with the sticker.

5)How long will my sticker last?

Vinyl Wall Design decals are made of mat vinyl, a semi permanent material that will last at least 5 years. Because it’s semi permanent it won’t leave any marks on removal.

6)Can I request one of your stickers in a different size or colour?
Yes you can, we will try to accommodate your requests. Colours are subject to availability and the change in size might vary the price of the product.
Email us your request and we’ll reply soon.

7)Will Vinyl Wall Design stickers leave any residue when removed or take off the paint?
No, our stickers won't leave any trace on the wall when removed; Since we cannot guarantee the condition of all wall surfaces, we cannot say for sure that some paint flecking will not occur. This depends on the condition and texture of your wall, if the paint is old and flacky you may notice paint flecks on the back of the decals when removed and some minor paint touch up may be required.
Vinyl Wall Design is not responsible for any damage that may occur.
