Wall Decal Requirements

Is Your Wall Ready for Our Decal?

Here's what you need to know about paint types and surfaces that aren't quite compatible with our decals.

  • Stain Resistant Paint

    These paints are formulated to prevent anything from bonding to them. They are fantastic for resisting dirt and stains, but not so great for decals. Our decals won't stick without some wall prep.

  • Air-Cleaning Paints

    Designed to keep your air clean, but they don't get along with our decals.

  • Highly Textured Walls & Wallpaper

    The bumpy surface makes it tough for decals to adhere properly. We also advise against applying on wallpapered walls as it may damage the wallpaper.

  • Old, Cracked, Or Degraded Paint

    Decals on deteriorating surfaces can worsen the condition. The pressure from the decal might peel the paint, causing it to fall off.

  • Cosmetic Damages

    Every wall has a story, and minor damages can happen when applying or removing decals. A bit of sanding and a fresh coat of paint will do the trick.

  • Newly Painted Walls

    Patience is key! Wait at least 30 days after painting before applying our decal.

  • Damage Control

    While minor wall damages can occur, MODI MODU won't cover any damages caused by decal removal.
