Frequently asked questions about wall decals
Who makes your wall decals and where?
I'm so happy you asked! We do :) We print and cut all wall decals in our small studio here in lovely Helsinki, Finland. You are welcome to visit us any time you like, we would love to see you here.
Why would I want to use a wall decal in the first place?
Wall decals are a quick and easy way to decorate your home without damaging your walls with hooks or paint. Asides from walls, they can be placed to any smooth, not-porous surface; including windows, doors, mirrors, furniture, laptops, etc. It's the perfect temporary decoration that won't break your bank account.
Our decals are perfect for cleansing you home of bad moods and sad vibes. By using a door friend on at least one door of your home, you are guaranteed to experience brief sensations of happiness every time you move from one room to another. We have also had reports of very impressed and happy friends and quests as a result of installing wall decals.
What exactly are your wall decals made of?
Our Eco-matte Wall Decals are made of a a deliciously thick matte coated self-adhesive paper without any unnecessary chemicals or plastics (yes, that's right - they are plastic free wall decals). We only use paper that is made in Europe from sustainable sources.
Adhesive: The adhesive we use is a pressure sensitive water based acrylic.
Inks: We print our wall decals with completely non-toxic, solvent-free and odourless latex colors that look and feel great.
Note! Our Door Friend decals are not made of the Eco Matte paper decals but instead cut out of a high quality matte PVC-Free polyester-film.

Can I use your wall decals in ANY wall?
Our wall decals are meant to be easily removable, so their adhesive is not that strong - thus we do recommend you make sure that the intended surface is even and smooth. We do not recommend to apply them on bumpy, rough or textured walls such as stucco or eggshell painted surfaces. Bumpy walls will create pockets of air in between the sticker and the wall, thus interfere with the sticker adhering. They are also not recommended for brick or non-painted cement surfaces. Made of Sundays is not responsible if graphics applied to a bumpy texture do not stick.
Can I install your wall decals on wallpaper?
You can, but we recommend not to. There is always a risk that the wallpaper will peel off when removing the decal. It is always hard to guess how well the wall paper is attached to the wall in the first place.
How do I know if my wall works with wall decals?
If you are not sure of whether the decal will work in your wall or not, let us know! We will be more than happy to send you a small sample of the material for you to try out. You can also test out your wall with a simple small piece of masking or washi tape. The masking tape has a very low-tack adhesive, and usually works as a good indicator if the decals will stick or not!
Can you stick wall decals on newly painted walls?
Sure, just allow at least 30 days on newly painted surfaces. It should be completely super dry or bubbles can occur if the paint is still out-gassing. Also make sure all drywall painted or repainted surfaces have been primed in order to avoid unwanted adhesive remains and paint peeling upon removal.
Please note that some of the new new VOC 0 eggshell paints might contain small amounts of silicone and thus not work very well with anything sticky. You can always test your wall with a simple piece of masking tape, if it sticks then our decals will too.
Can I use wall decals in the bathroom?
Our wall stickers are made of paper, so we do not recommend that they are used in wet spaces.
How do I clean the surface before applying my wall decal?
Use a warm, damp cloth or sponge to clean the wall surface or window and allow it to completely dry before applying your sticker or decal. Also make sure all previous cleaning solutions are completely gone.
Can I use your wall decals outdoors?
Our Eco Matte Decals are for indoor use only in dry spaces, as they are made of paper.
I live in a rented apartment, will your wall decals leave residue when removed?
Technically not. Our wall decals allow a residue-free removal for up to 2 years. However, be aware that if applied to very old walls or furniture, the paint may peel off upon removal if the paint was already flaky or in poor condition. Always take care to make sure that your wall is suited for decals before installation.
If you want to be extra careful when removing our stickers, spray them with water first to soften the adhesive. The adhesive is water based, so moistening it will make it easy to remove.
