Hi, Welcome to Wallspoken and WallSpoken Weddings!

Wallspoken began when I was a little girl. I was fascinated with reading and the power of certain words that would always stay with me and carry so much meaning. I started to collect quotes and sayings and along the way ended up with a few boxes full of random pieces of paper I had jotted quotes on over the years. Those boxes full of quotes have now become the heart of WallSpoken.

I believe that the power of the written word goes far beyond our imagination. For years, I would make notes for myself or friends that were having a touch time so that every time they saw my "note" it would inspire them.

Wallspoken is meant to do the same, inspire and encourage us, only now it doesn't have to be on an unattractive yellow sticky note, it is a beautiful addition to your home.

Thank you for being a part of our dream.

Blessings, WallSpoken

Additional policies and FAQs

If you would like to receive a proof we have them available for a small fee. Make sure to add one to your order before checking out. You can purchase one by clicking on our main shop page and clicking on "proofs" in the right hand column under sections. Allow 3-5 days to receive your proof.

Of course if we make an error from your original instructions, we will replace your personalized item, free of charge. We will redo the order as it was initially ordered only.

Also, your decal might appear slightly different from the example as we will professionally determine the correct point size, leading (space between lines of copy), and placement of your text.

Q. Will the lettering adhere to any surface?
A. The letters are made of thin material similar to stickers and they need some surface to stick. Stucco, brick and some wallpaper are too uneven. The "orange peel" or knockdown walls seem to work fine if they're not too lumpy. The letters work great on windows mirrors, painted walls, wood and metal. Not all wallpapers are created equal. Some have better surfaces than others for our words. The same with paint. If the paint has been applied over a primer and is clean and smooth you shouldn't have any problem removing them. If you are applying Wall Words to a freshly painted surface, wait at least 3 weeks for the paint to dry and cure completely before applying your WallSpoken. If you are painting to prepare for your WallSpoken, a primer coat under your paint will help it stick better.

Here are our top two most commonly reported transfer problems:

Funky Paint
Although this is very rare, some paints just aren't compatible with WallSpoken. It's one of the reasons we recommend trying a free sample on your own wall. If you've already ordered and find that you are not able to transfer properly, please let us know.

Surface Texture
Your walls may be too rough. This will be pretty obvious once you try to transfer because there simply won't be enough surface for your Wallspoken to adhere to. Please, if you're in doubt about a textured surface, we will gladly send you a free sample.

Q. How do I apply my quotation(s)?
A. Click Here for step by step installations instructions.

Q. How much does WallSpoken cost if I only want a word or two?

Q. How do I determine the height of the lettering?
A. The tallest letter will dictate the size of the lower case and other smaller letters. If you use upper and lower case in a line, the measurement is from the top of the tallest letter to the bottom of the lowest letter. Most j's, p's, and y's extend below the line and will not be included in the overall measurement.

If the font you want is not listed in the examples, place your order and then send us an email and tell us the font you want. We have hundreds of fonts but if we don't have yours we will contact you via email.

Q. Can I paint my wall before hanging WallSpoken?
A. Yes, but wait at least one month after painting. If a piece of masking tape does not remove any paint from an inconspicuous place on your freshly painted wall, your wall is ready for your WallSpoken.

Q. Can I put WallSpoken over wallpaper?
A. Yes, but consider it carefully. It tends to look best on solid-colored or subtly patterned walls. We suggest trying a sample first.

Q. Can I clean WallSpoken?
A. Yes, but you need to do it just as you would a wall that had hand painted letters. Use mild soap and a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid using cleaners that contain alcohol or abrasives.

Q. Can I leave WallSpoken on my walls forever?
A. Yes. But remember that colored walls tend to fade over time, especially if they’re exposed to sun. You may have "ghosts" on these walls when you remove your text.

Q. I can’t hang my WallSpoken right away. Is that okay?
A. WallSpoken text becomes more difficult to transfer the longer it is stored, so we recommend ordering it when you know you'll use it right away. If you must postpone hanging your quote, store it in a clean, dry area away from excessive moisture and sunlight. Keep it in its shipping carton and don’t store it in temperatures above 100°F.

Q. How long is delivery?
A. Since every WallSpoken order is custom, please expect 2-3 weeks with standard delivery. Delivery could be longer due to increased demand or you could have your art in as little as a week. If you're desperate for your art, email us to request speedier delivery at an additional charge.

Q. Can I get samples?
A. Yes, we offer free samples. Just email us at questions [!at] wallspoken.com or fill out our online contact form.

Q. How do I remove WallSpoken?
A. When you're ready for a new quote or you just want to remove your quote, you can use a pair of tweezers to pull them off or simply slide a fingernail under a corner of a letter and peel. If they have been up for a couple of years they sometimes harden a little. Lightly heat them up with a hair dyer then they should peel off easily. There may be a slight sticky residue that will easily come off with rubbing alcohol or "Goo Gone"

Q. Will WallSpoken transfer to textured walls?
A. Our product doesn't transfer well to very rough walls, but we've tested it on medium- to lightly textured walls and it looks great. On the other hand, there's a fine line between what looks great and what won't work. So we recommend requesting a free sample to test on your walls. Request free samples.

Q. What if I don't like the color, style or length when I receive the letters?
A. If you're unhappy with your letters, you can return them for a full refund within 30 days. But to insure that the color is what you expected, we can send you color samples. Email us your name, address, and the colors that you would like to see.

Q. Do the colors have a shine to them?
A. Most of our colors have matte finishes, but a few of them have a light sheen.

If you would like a sample of a certain color, please email us at questions [!at] WallSpoken.com with your name, address, and the color that you would like a sample of.

Q. What if I'm not sure I will be able install my words and would like some help?
A. We have a few installers, who for a fee, would be happy to help you install your words.

A. It depends on how big you want it. When you design your own, you'll note that the price of your order changes whenever you make a size change. A 3-inch-high letter costs $1.50 a piece and a 6 inch high letter cost $3.00 a piece.
