We are here to assist you through the process of choosing, installing and caring for your new wall coverings. Here is a list of commonly asked questions, along with links to further information and instructional videos. If you'd rather speak directly, you are welcome to contact us anytime. We're here to help!
The answer to this question is subjective. Maybe wall art is an ornate clock, crafty pieces of material or a stack of books on a floating shelf. To most it’s a painting or photo, in a frame and hung on the wall. We would agree with this statement… minus the frame and hook. Our interpretation of “wall art” is a bit more literal. We feel you shouldn’t limit yourself to a frame. Our art covers the entire wall, corner to corner.
In our world, wall art could mean a color, pattern or mural. We also feel that decal stickers are a big part of wall décor. Just think of the entire wall as your canvas, now all you need to do is pick the art.
This decorative product has a few different names like wall stickers, wall graphics, wall appliques, and even wall clings. They are typically custom cut shapes of printed vinyl with a peel and stick adhesive backing. So, there is no need for tape, tacks or glue when attaching them to your surface. They are precision machine cut into unique shapes to create a silhouette effect on your walls, ceilings, windows, or any other flat surface in need of a little flare. We offer our decals in dozens of colors, shapes and sizes.
Honestly, we are only limited by the size of your wall. Some lower quality images are difficult to expand. They can start to lose sharpness and clarity. Not to worry, our graphic design team is great at working their magic, using pro editing tools expanding your image quality to the size of a billboard!
Many times, pixelation can be reduced by softening lines. We can also render images with a more artistic look, giving us the freedom to make images any size you choose.
Custom cut decals have no size limitations. Our product size options are only displayed up to 14ft, but you are welcome to contact us and request any custom size beyond that.
No problem, we can help you track the perfect piece. Let us know what you’re looking for and our curators will build you a custom gallery that meets your requirements. We can even alter the image, change colors, add text or company graphics… anything is possible.

With the proper preparation vinyl wall murals and decals are easy to install. The two most important tips we can offer is to take your time and find a friend to help.
We offer step-by-step instructions to help you through the installation process. From cleaning your surface to tricky cuts around corners, outlets and windows. All our products come with printed instructions and an application tool. If you’d like to get a better idea of the process prior to receiving your wall art, watch any of our dozens of tutorial videos to get a closeup look at the entire process.
Fun fact, most of the people in our instructional videos are first time installers following our instruction with minimal hands-on assistance.
Can I install wall art by myself? It is possible to install some smaller decals on your own, but larger decals, wallpaper murals and patterns are much easier to install with the help of a friend. One person should hold the panel in place while your navigating co-piolet will ensure you’re all lined up before attaching to the wall.
Be sure to read through the printed instructions and watch the installation videos before you begin. That should make for a smooth install.
If you have read the instructions, watched the videos and your tools are prepped and ready to go. The process should go quickly, but this is not something you should rush through. Give yourself some time. If your wall art consists of multiple panels, you will notice that the process is easier and moves faster as you get the hang of it. Since you are simply repeating the steps with every panel. So, if we were set and average, it should take about 20 minutes per panel. Allow extra time for cuts around windows, doors and plugs.
Our wall art will attach to dozens of surfaces without causing any damaging when removed. To get the best results, you want a flat, smooth, and clean surface. This could be painted drywall, glass, finished wood, cement, and many others. We don’t recommend applying to brick, cinder block, unfinished wood or other rough textured surfaces, but still possible.
Typically, you can push the bubbles out with your squeegee (that we include with your art). Just drag along the surface to the closest seam. If that isn’t working, not to worry, our material is very easy to work with. You can simply peel back the vinyl to the bubble and slowly reapply with your squeegee. The last option is to prick a very small hole with a needle, tack or razor blade. Then push the air out and your vinyl will lay flat.
No problem, you can search wallpaper hanging professionals near you, or use this linkand enter your zip code. There you can find a pro near you.
Yes, all our products come with a special adhesive backing that is easy to remove, with no damage to the wall. The process is as simple as pulling away, but you are welcome to watch our video on how to remove wall vinyl decals and wallpaper.
Wallpaper isn’t the same as it used to be. 808 Wall Art uses a premium vinyl material with a special adhesive backing that is very easy to work with. If your surface is in good condition, your wall art will simply peel off whenever you choose to remove it, even years from now.
If you are applying to a painted surface, the bond will only be as good as the quality of the surface. We suggest a satin to semi-gloss coating for the easiest removal of your wall art. Matte or flat paints will form a slightly stronger bond with the adhesive, but still acceptable for installation. If you’re planning on repainting before installing your wall art, try to avoid paints with a low or zero VOC rating. You can consult your local paint or hardware store for more information.
Yes, as long as your surface was properly prepped and clean when you originally installed, our premium adhesive will retain its tackiness after being removed. If you think you might move your mural at any point, we suggest you hold on to the backing paper. You can lay the vinyl panels onto the backing paper and roll them back up for safe keeping. It’s important to the backing clean. Any dust, dirt or debris will reduce the bond when reapplying.
In an optimal environment, we’ve had success removing and reapplying up to 3 times. The key to preserving is keeping the adhesive backing clean. Oils and dirt from your hands, dust in the air or debris in the room. It’s all attracted to the adhesive. So, ensure you are transferring in a clean environment, and you should be good to go.
Yes, you can clean your vinyl artwork. We suggest using a damp rag. Avoid using harsh cleaning solutions.
The longevity of your wall art depends on the environment. Our high-quality material is very durable and designed to withstand 5+ years in outdoor conditions, under direct sunlight. So, if your wall art is going to live in a temperature controlled indoor space, you can rest assured that it will survive 10+ years if properly cared for. There are a few things that will reduce the length of your wall art. Water damage will deteriorate the ink and adhesive over time. Also, if your walls are constantly bumped, rubbed or scratched by people, pets, furniture or any other foreign objects, it might be a good idea to have your vinyl laminated.
Any environment is possible, it’s just some will deteriorate wall art faster than others. Our premium vinyl peel and stick material is rated for outdoor conditions up to 5 years, but if you place it in a more protected indoor environment with regulated temperature and humidity, your wall art will last much longer.
You should also consider the condition of the surface you’re applying to. If the wall is in good condition, the vinyl adhesive will form a lasting bond for years to come. You can watch our videos on acceptable surfaces for more detailed information. We also offer tutorials on repairing any damage to your surface. A smooth, clean flat, dry surface is the ideal environment for vinyl wallpaper murals and decal wall stickers.
