How do I Remove the Decals?

Custom Wall Graphics   VinylDisorder.com

Sometimes, you choose a decal for a space, and once it’s up decide that you’d like to move it to another room or even just a couple inches to the left. Luckily, there are ways to remove your vinyl decal without causing damage to the underlying surface. In this article, Vinyl Disorder will walk you through some of the most successful ways to remove a decal.

Car Decals

Cancer Awareness white

Are you about to sell your car? Did you add a decal that you loved at the time but have since outgrown? Or, maybe you sneezed while applying the decal and it ended up a bit crooked. Whatever the situation, it is possible to remove your car decal without causing damage to the vehicle.

First, you’ll want to heat the decal with a hair dryer — this will start to loosen the adhesive that is attaching the decal to the surface and make it easier to remove. Hold the hair dryer or heat gun over the decal until you start to see the edges curl.

Once the edges have started to curl, use a plastic blade — we’ll stress again that it should be plastic in order to avoid causing damage to your vehicle — to start chipping away at the adhesive underneath the decal. If you don’t have a plastic blade at home, most hardware stores carry a variety of options that are specifically meant for removing adhesive decals without scratching the underlying surface. You can also use your fingernails here, but be careful as the vinyl can get very hot. While using the blade (or your fingernail), try to hold it as parallel to the surface as possible to further minimize the chance of scratching the surface. If a plastic blade is just not an option, you can also try using a credit card, library card or other sturdy yet thin plastic object.

While you’re at the hardware store picking up a plastic blade, go ahead and grab a bottle of rubbing alcohol. No need to spend money on harsh chemicals or specialty adhesive removers, as our adhesives can be removed with this tried and true pantry staple. Dab some rubbing alcohol onto a paper towel or cloth, gently rub the left over adhesive to remove and you’re all set! You now have a blank canvas for your next vinyl car decal.

Wall Decals

If you’re open to choosing a less-permanent decal option from the start, your life will be much easier when you decide to remove it. Temporary decals for indoor use can also be used outdoors under the proper conditions and can be easily removed without leaving any unsightly residue behind. Once you’ve decided to move your indoor vinyl wall decal, simply use a plastic blade or credit card to gently peel the edge away from the surface. Once you have enough of an edge that you can easily grasp it, begin to peel the decal off of the surface slowly and evenly. That’s it! Removable vinyl wall decals are great options for people who like to update their style frequently or have a tendency to change their mind.

Whether you choose a permanent outdoor use vinyl decal or a removable indoor use vinyl decal, there are ways to remove them once they’re in place. If you have more detailed questions about the decal removal process our want help deciding between the outdoor and indoor use decals, reach out to us via email, phone, web chat or social media.
