A: Paint typically needs to cure for a period of no less than a month, to ensure that it won't peel right off your wall in the event that you remove your Skribblz. Curing makes the paint hard, essentially making sure that the moisture is gone from the painted surface.
Be patient! Just wait to make sure your paint is cured. You don't want to have to re-order your artwork...or worse yet....repaint an entire wall!
Q: Do I Have to Clean my Wall Before Adhering Skribblz?
A: Well, the answer is simple......YES. Unless this wall was painted within the last 3 months, you are safest to just bite the bullet, and wash the wall. Washing the surface removes any oil, smoke or residue that could affect the adhesive on your Skribblz. You don't want your artwork peeling off and having to re-order a new piece.
Q: Can I Cut my Skribblz Apart to Alter the Design?
A: Many of our customers ask if they can cut their Skribblz. And our answer......of course you can! Often our customers find it easier to install Skribblz if they have cut them apart, and just as often, they want to customize the look of the artwork by placing the cut pieces in their own design. You can trim all of the excess paper off too, in order to make your piece easier to handle.
There's just one thing to keep in mind: Don't cut through the image! Even though the vinyl is thin, if you cut the image you will probably see the mark once it's installed.
Other than that, go nuts....cut away!
Q: Can I put up my Skribblz in a room that has a higher degree of moisture?
A: Skribblz can be placed on any flat surface in your home. However, bathrooms and basements (especially outside walls) can often contain higher moisture amounts which affects the paint adhesion to the wall. While you can definitely hang your Skribblz in these areas, the paint adhesion may degrade because of the moisture over time, and when you try to remove your artwork, the paint may come with it as well. It's not a huge deal, but it may requuire some spackle to smooth out the area afterwards. Remember that Skribblz look especially cool on mirrored surfaces, and if you want to place it on a wall in a high humidity room, when you go to remove it, warm it with your hairdryer first!
