Q: How long will the statement last after it has been applied to a surface?
A: Wall Written Statements are not intended for permanent application; however, they can last for months or years depending on the surface and environment. Statements applied indoors can last significantly longer than statements applied outdoors where they are exposed to weather.
Q: How do I remove a statement?
A: When you are ready to remove a Wall Written Statement, warm it slightly with a blow dryer on the low heat setting.
NOTE: Use care to avoid overheating the statement and/or wall to avoid damage.
Hold the blow dryer approximately eight inches away from the statement, taking care not to overheat your paint. Gently lift a corner of each letter or design with a fingernail and pull down slowly.
Q: When Wall Written statements are removed, does residue remain on the wall? If so, how do I remove it?
A: Typically, our statements do not leave a sticky residue; however, several factors can affect this, including the length of time the statement has been displayed on a surface. If some residue remains upon removal of an statement, try using isopropyl alcohol or other residue removers to remove it. As always, follow the manufacturer's recommendations to avoid damage to your surface.
Q: What is sun fade, and what causes it?
A: Sun fade, also known as shading or ghosting, can occur when exposure to sunlight causes a surface to fade or darken. For example, framed art can prevent the wall treatment behind it from fading at the same rate as the rest of the wall because sunlight never reaches it. When the art is moved to a new position on the wall, a darker spot remains. The same thing can happen with a statement depending on its placement, the amount of light it receives, and the surface to which it is applied.
Sun fading can happen to almost any surface regardless of the treatment applied (paint, fabric, stain, lacquer, and so on), but it is most common with oil-based paint. Sun fade is not caused by the material used in the manufacture of the statement.
