The FAQs of life as they pertain to Conspicuous Design products.

Q: What material is used for your fabric wall stickers? What's it like?

A: We use a premium quality, thin, strong and water-resistant satin fabric with a re-positionable adhesive that removes cleanly and easily with no residue. It is soft and smooth to the touch, water and abrasion resistant and will not tear, wrinkle, stretch or curl without a fight. It is non vinyl, PVC free and does not off-gas as vinyl-based decals do.

Q: What surfaces are appropriate for your wall stickers?

A: They are perfect for smooth to semi-smooth painted walls as well as many non-painted surfaces such as plastics, glass, finished wood and metals. Not recommended for brick, non-painted cement surfaces or heavily textured or porous surfaces. If you have doubts about the surface you intend to place our stickers on just request a sample.

Q: How do I apply wall stickers? What about murals? Any tips?

A: For everything you need to know, please see our Wall Sticker and Mural Application Tips

Q: Can wall stickers be layered? Will they damage the sticker beneath?

A: Yes, they can be layered to create new design combinations, a small nature design at the center of a large geometric one, for example. No, they will not damage the underlying sticker--they can be changed up and moved about at will.

Q: How do I use hexagon and triangle wall stickers to create a mural?

A: To match a hexagon design with compatibly sized equilateral and obtuse triangles, use the chart below. The length of the equilateral triangle sides will match the length of one of the hexagon's sides. The obtuse triangle (which is essentially the "top" triangle of a hexagon) will fit the spaces created by two adjoining hexagons, which is helpful for building a mural as it can be used as a "starter" to have the mural emerge from a flat surface, like a baseboard.

Q: Can your wall stickers be cut?

A: Yes, they can be cut with sharp scissors or with a utility or X-acto knife while still attached to the backing. They do not fray, so shapes can be cut without issue. Cut, peel and stick!

Q: Where can I find ideas for how to use your wall stickers creatively?

A: Glad you asked! For inspiration please visit our Inspiration Gallery

Q: Is it possible to get a custom sized or color-shift to a wall sticker or print? What about a fully custom wall sticker or print based on my imagery?

A: Yes. Custom sizing is free of charge with an adjusted price based on the actual size. Color alteration can be more time consuming and may necessitate an additional charge. Just contact us and let us know what you're wanting. And, yes! We can make custom wall stickers based on your imagery. Just use our handy image uploader.

Q: Will wall stickers leave a residue or damage paint when removed?

A: Not typically. Our wall stickers have a special adhesive backing that leaves no residue behind. Depending on the condition of the painted walls when the wall stickers were applied, it's possible that a small amount of flaking could occur requiring touch-ups. Conspicuous Design is not responsible for any damage that may occur.

Q: How long should I wait before applying wall stickers to freshly painted walls?

A: We recommend waiting at least a week after painting your walls before applying our wall stickers. This allows time for the paint to cure.

Q: How long will the wall stickers last?

A. Our wall stickers are tough and long-lasting. They have excellent light-fastness but may fade a bit over the years depending on sun exposure. Generally, however, they are very resilient and can be expected to last a decade or more with no issue.

Q: Can they be used outdoors?

A: Yes, they can be used outdoors and, depending on the severity or gentleness of local weather conditions, can last a good long while. Their exceptional water resistance is a big help in this regard. Using a clear-coat finish will dramatically increase their longevity. Officially rated at 6 months, results will vary.

Q: Are your prints of high quality?

A: Yes! We have been printing fine art for many years and don't compromise. We personally maintain our professional imaging equipment and use only fine pigment inks and papers. We care about the details and strive to make prints of excellent quality.

Q: Is it possible to have prints made on different papers than those offered?

A. Yes, we stock a fairly wide range of papers and may be able to accommodate your request. One paper we like and may eventually add to our standard offerings is a metallic paper called Slickrock Metallic by Moab. It is the most metallic looking surface we have seen and the prints look amazing. Contact us to request this option or ask about other paper possibilities.

Q: How long until my order ships?

A: Our wall stickers and art prints are made to order in-house. We aim to ship within 1-3 business days. Once your order ships we'll send a confirmation email with a link to track your package. Our apparel and accessories ship from our production partner in Los Angeles. This means that apparel and accessories ship separately from wall stickers and art prints. Their shipping times are as follows: approximately 2-7 business days to create apparel products (t-shirts etc.) and 2-5 business days for non-apparel products. Then you should add shipping times on top of that. 97.66% of these orders are shipped within 5 business days. More than a half are shipped within 3 business days or less. 

Q: How do I check my order status?

A: You can check the status of your order by clicking on the "Order Status" link in your order confirmation email.

Q: What type of packaging do you use to ship your wall stickers and prints?

A: We ship in tubes because this is the safest and most economical means of shipping them. We use large, 3-5" diameter tubes which impart very little curl to the product and has no detrimental effect. We re-use clean tubes in good condition whenever possible to reduce waste. The tubes are recyclable but the plastic caps are not. Our framed prints are carefully packaged and shipped in boxes.

Q: What if I live in a country that isn't listed when I try to check out?

A: Please contact us for international shipping to a destination not listed in our shipping options and we will reply promptly with a quote.

Q: What payment types do you accept?

A: We accept payment by credit or debit card through our shopping cart.

Q: What is your return policy?

A: Returns are easy because we want you to be completely happy with your order! We accept returns within 14 days of receipt. Just email us at: info@conspicuousdesign.com for the return address. Please note that return shipping cost is the responsibility of the buyer unless the item is received damaged or defective. All custom orders are final and we cannot offer returns on those.
