What exactly are wall decals?

Wall decals—also known as wall stickers, wall graphics, wall appliques, and even wall clings.

Where is Main Street Wall Creations made?

Wall Wear wall decals are proudly made in the United States, except where otherwise noted.

What makes Main Street Wall Creations decals so special?

Traditional wall stickers use a sticky backing that bonds to paint or smooth surfaces. When these wall stickers are removed, some of the backing is left behind in the form of a sticky residue—or you may even find that some of the paint comes off, too. Yikes!

Wall wall decals use a special adhesive that grips the wall tightly but won't form a bond. When the sticker is removed, it lifts easily from the wall without residue or damage. This technology also allows the decals to be used again at a new location without reducing the quality of their performance.

Safety & Cleaning

Is Main Street Wall Creations safe for kids?

Our products are 100% safe for children. Wall Wear decals are non-toxic and free of harmful chemicals like phthalates and lead. They are fully compliant, and have undergone many rigorous safety and regulatory tests.

We want you to feel safe with Wall Wear in your home, so we’re regularly undergoing new tests to ensure that each and every one of our products remain safe for children (and adults) to decorate with. If you’d like more information on our current safety standards, or to request specific test results, please contact us.

Is there latex or PVC in the Main Street Wall Creations? ...Nope.

We too are very concerned with our products safety, which is why we’re regularly undergoing new tests to ensure that each and every one of our products remain safe for children (and adults) to decorate with. Our wall decals are 100% safe for children. The decals are free of latex, non-toxic and free of harmful chemicals like phthalates and lead. They are fully CPSIA-compliant, and have undergone many rigorous safety and regulatory tests. 

Our products are made of vinyl using a polymeric plasticizer not a phthalate.

Can I clean my wall decals?

A slightly damp cloth and a little hand soap should do the trick for removing any dirt, dust, or other substances that may end up on your wall decals.

We do NOT recommend spraying any chemicals on or around your Main Wall Street Creations. Direct contact or prolonged exposure could cause bubbling, running, streaking, or fading.

Removal

How do I remove my wall decals?

Start at a corner and slowly peel the decal from the wall or surface, moving toward the center of the wall decal until it is free from the wall. Pulling too hard, too fast may cause your wall decal to stretch.

How do I store my wall decals if I want to save them for later?

If there's a possibility that you'll need to remove your Main Street Wall Creations, either to move them to a new location or to save them for re-use at a later date, we recommend saving the liners that come in the original packaging. You can re-apply the decals to the liners and store them wherever you please.

In lieu of the original liners, wax or parchment paper also works very well for this purpose.
