FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Wall art can be applied to most wall types and painted surfaces. It’s crucial to allow enough time for freshly painted walls to fully dry. If not, the adhesive on your wall art can fail and the graphics can fall off.
A freshly painted wall needs at least 21 days to dry before applying wall art. We recommend applying a water-based eggshell finish and giving this enough time to dry as well. This guarantees your wall art will stick well and last for a long time.
There are several things you should do before vinyl fitters arrive. This increases the lifespan of your wall art and reduces fitting time.
- Clean the wall to remove any dust from the surface. Minimise the amount of dust in the air as much as possible.
- Remove any wall fittings on surface where wall art is being applied. This includes light switches, mounted TVs, coat hooks, framed pictures and anything else that could get in the way.
- Make sure a freshly painted wall has been allowed to dry for 21 days.
There is no size limit for your wall art. Looking to create a large focus wall? Large wall art and full wall wraps are a fantastic way to make a bold statement and transform any room. Our printers have a maximum print height of 1300mm but there’s no limit to the size of wall you can cover. We simply split your wall covering or wall art into smaller pieces that are individually applied.
PREPARING FOR YOUR QUOTE
Let us know the surface type of your wall.
Your wall art should look great and stand the test of time. Different materials behave differently on different surfaces. Please tell us if your wall is exposed brick, bare concrete, a flat or bumpy finish, emulsion painted or not. This helps choose the right kind of material for the job and gives you the best possible result the first time around.
Provide measurements for your wall art in centimeters (cm).
Wrong measurements are the most common mistake we come across. To get perfect results first time around, carefully measure the spaces where you need wall art. The more measurements the better.
If measuring for simple wall art logos, tell us the size you want for the final artwork. For full wall wraps, carefully measure the dimensions of your wall excluding the skirting board at the bottom. This ensures your wall branding covers your entire wall perfectly.

Describe what you want in detail. Attach high-resolution artwork or reference images if possible.
The creative possibilities of vinyl are endless. There’s no limit to what we can print on or cut into vinyl. Custom sizes of stock designs from our shop, simple colours, complex custom artwork or even photographs. Describe exactly what you want in detail and always attach the highest resolution artwork (or vector) that you have available. This helps you get a quick and accurate quote.
Don’t have artwork? No problem. Our designers can make it for you as long as you describe what you want in detail.
Send vector artwork if you have it.
Your artwork must be in vector format for custom vinyl decals or lettering. If you don’t have a vector file, we can help you make one. You will need to send the highest possible resolution image file you have for this to work well.
Attach the highest resolution file you have.
Large custom wraps and vinyl stickers require high resolution images if you don’t have vector artwork. Make sure to send the highest resolution file you have available to you. This ensures you get the highest quality result possible.
A good rule of thumb is this. Want something 10 cm x 10 cm or larger? Your file should be at least 1 MB large. If not, it is probably very low resolution and will not print well.
Follow these technical specifications to get the best results.
Vector files (ai/svg/eps) in CMYK colour format are the best files to send. CMYK format ensures you get perfect colour matching between your custom print and the artwork in your document. Vector files mean we can scale your artwork to any size without losing any quality.
Make your file to scale when possible and set the document units to millimeters. All cut paths for die-cut stickers should be saved in a separate layer titled ‘CutContour’ and set to 1 pt stroke with a spot colour of bright magenta.
