How To Stick A Wall Sticker: The Step-by-Step Guide
If you bought a vinyl sticker and do not know how to apply it on the wall on any other smooth surface, then use our article to do it.
Find A Suitable Wall Or Surface For The Sticker
If you want to stick your vinyl sticker on a wall, then make sure that you choose a wall that has strong support to withstand the tension of the sticker when you put the sticker.
If you are using the sticker on an area where your workbench is installed, then it's best to use some tape to stick the sticker on the workbench surface, especially if you use some soft tape to do so.
You can stick your vinyl sticker on the wall even if you don't have a workbench installed yet, but there are still some steps you need to take before you start doing so.
Clean The Area
First, it is very important to clean the area you intend to stick your sticker on. This will prevent your sticker from sticking to the wall by dirt, dust, etc.
Use an cleaning spray to clean off the walls where you intend to stick the sticker.
Adjust Sticker on the Wall
- Tape The Sticker On The Wall
- Apply the sticker in the center of the sticker to the smooth surface of the wall.
- Press it firmly.
- If you are using adhesive, don’t use too much. This will have a strong effect on the wall.
Peel The Sticker Off The Backing Paper
To peel the sticker off the backing paper, hold the sticker in both hands and run a soft-bristled brush around the entire backing paper. If you need help peeling off the backing paper, read our step-by-step tutorial.
Once you are done with the initial work, wait for about 20 seconds and the sticker will start peeling off of the backing paper. This process will go on for a couple of minutes.
To prevent the sticker from coming off, place your hand on the adhesive side and avoid breaking the paper. You can also use the same method to peel off the sticker if it did not stick.
Apply The Sticker To The Wall
When applying the sticker to the wall, make sure you keep the paper right in front of you. This will make it easier to apply the sticker on the wall.
Clean The Excess Adhesive & Air Bubbles
Some stickers use white adhesive for the sticker to stick but in some cases the sticker will be made of a special plastic. If you bought the sticker and notice the white spot, then do not panic as it will not stick on the wall.
If you use a white sticker, it may stick easily on any kind of smooth surface but the problem is the adhesion will drop after about a day or two.
To fix this problem, do not clean it too frequently. Instead, you can use a damp cloth or some rubbing alcohol to remove the excess glue and bubbles.
