INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for

CANVAS-BACKED LAMINATED VINYL WALLCOVERING

Materials Needed:

  • Pre-mixed medium to heavy weight wall covering adhesive
  • Smooth Brush
  • Straight Edge (for trimming)
  • Sharp Blades
  • Tape Measure
  • Clean Sponge
  • Drop Cloth
  • Large Buckets with Clean Warm Water
  • Level
 

 1)     Prep your Walls!

  • Make sure walls are clean.  Remove grease and dirt and rinse with warm water.
  • Remove all hooks, fixtures, and electrical plates.
  • Fill all cracks and holes with Spackle  and lightly sand until smooth.
  • Seal and prime walls with flat latex paint, if necessary.
 2)     Create Guidelines
  • Using a level, draw a straight vertical line with a pencil.  Mark a new line every few feet to use as a guide to ensure the mural lays straight.
 3)     Cut out your Mural
  • Murals are printed on a continuous roll, with several panels and/or individual cutouts.  Cut each panel out, being careful not to cut into the color!!
 

 4)     Apply Adhesive

  • Lay your first panel on a clean, flat surface with the backside up.  Using a pasting brush, apply the pre-mixed paste to the panel back. 

 5)     Laying your Mural

  • Apply the panel to the wall and slide into position, using the previously drawn guidelines to ensure the straightness.  Use a clean damp sponge and press against the wall from the center of the panel to the perimeter to remove all wrinkles and air bubbles.  BE CAREFUL NOT TO SCRATCH OR STRETCH THE MURAL.
  • Repeat step 4 for each additional panel.
  • Apply the next panel to the wall.  Murals are printed with 1-2 inches of bleed that will overlap.  Overlap the panel and line up the artwork to match.  Use a clean, damp sponge to remove wrinkles and air bubbles.  You can either double cut or leave the overlap.
  • When all the panels of the mural are installed, trim any excess paper at the ceiling and/or baseboard with a straight edge and a sharp blade, changing the blade as often as needed.
  • Remove all paste residue with a clean damp sponge.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for

PEEL'N'STICK PACKAGES

Step 1:  Prep

Pick a spot.  Themes-To-Go Peel'N'Sticks adhere well to smooth, indoor surfaces.  Recommended and NOT recommended surfaces are listed below. Measure your spot to ensure you have enough space. Lay the Peel'N'Stick flat for an hour before installing.

 Step 2: Clean

Use a warm damp cloth to wipe down the surface and let it dry completely.  DO NOT use any soaps or cleaning agents as they may make your Peel'N'Stick stick poorly.

 Step 3: Get Help!

We always recommend having a friend assist you in putting up your Peel'N'Stick.  These graphics are big and very sticky.

 Step 4: Apply

With help from a friend, start at the top of your Peel'N'Stick and carefully remove it from its backing.  Place one corner on the wall and slowly smooth into place using minimal pressure.  If you make a mistake, gently peel the image off the wall and reposition it. A Yellow plastic squeegee is included with your graphics to eliminate any wrinkles or air bubbles.  Start from the middle of the Peel'N'Stick and gently push out to the edges.
