Congratulations! You searched through the designs, considered your options, and selected your new map decal. Now it’s time to actually apply it to the wall. To help you out with the process, we created step-by-step application instructions with help from our friends at

  1. Read the directions. No, really. Before you go sticking anything up on the wall, read the directions all the way through!
  2. Clean the wall surface with a dry cloth or sponge. That way, no dirt or dust will interfere with the stickiness of your decal.
  3. Prep the decal by rubbing a squeegee tool across the back with lots of pressure. Make sure to cover the entire decal.
  4. Stick the decal on the wall using low-tack tape (tape for sensitive materials). Make sure that all pieces of the decal are straight and line up correctly.
  5. Peel off the transfer paper from one piece of the decal. Peel slowly and with care.
  6. Press that piece of decal on to the wall using your hands and a squeegee tool.
  7. Repeat steps five and six with each section of the decal.
  8. Remove the application tape by pulling it back on itself. Go slowly! Use your fingers to press down any pieces that start to come off the wall as you pull.

Now, enjoy your new decal.
