What are Custom Wall Decals?
A custom wall decal is a custom design printed directly onto a non-gloss 6mm opaque vinyl. The lightweight, durable vinyl we use is backed with a special low-tack adhesive for easy install and residue-free removal.
Our custom wall decals are printed with high-quality UV resistant inks that guarantee vibrant designs for both inside and out.
While these types of wall decals are often reserved for indoor use, they are also great for using on outdoor walls.
Top Benefits of Custom Wall Decals
Custom wall decals are incredibly versatile and can fit a vast array of needs. You can custom design a full, wrap-around wall mural that stretches the length of a long hallway. Or, you can print a catchy motto or inspirational quote to display on your wall or storefront. The options are completely unlimited!
Whether you need to install your decal indoors or outdoors, these custom wall decals will accommodate your use. When used indoors, our custom decals can last up to 5 years. Outdoors, depending on the severity of the weather conditions, the decal can last up to a year. To add additional life to your decal, we offer a lamination process to further protect your decal from wear and tear.
We can also custom cut your wall decal. We offer standard shapes and sizes but are happy to customize according to your preferences.
Custom wall decals are a perfect solution for both short term and long term projects. The ease of install and removal provides you with the flexibility of updating your space according to your needs. You can display a new business offer, post business hours, or transform rental walls without the hassle of paint.
Do you need a way to remind customers to practice social distancing, wash hands, or wear masks? Custom wall decals are a great solution that won’t take up any additional space. Post them on store walls or on bathroom doors to reinforce the message. You can even pair the reminder with floor decals that measure out the 6 feet!

Custom Wall Decal Surface Options
Our custom wall decals are incredibly versatile and adhere best to clean, smooth or lightly textured surfaces. Smoothly painted walls, dry-wall, metal, glass, and other non-porous surfaces ensure the best results. Other considerations include tile, treated wood and sealed concrete.
Custom wall decals can also be installed over curved or bent surfaces like pillars, posts, or around corners.
If the wall is textured you risk tearing the vinyl and weakening the adhesive which can cause your custom decal to fall or begin to peel away from the wall.
If you are not sure whether your surface is suitable or not, give us a call or contact us directly so we can discuss your options.
Sizing for Custom Wall Decals
Custom wall decals are incredibly versatile when it comes to size options.
Our printing capabilities cover a wide range from 6” to 240”, wide and high.
Should you need a coverage greater than that, we are happy to piece together several pieces to create a seamless mural or wall display. Remember, these decals can wrap around corners or even extend onto the ceiling, so make sure to calculate the size correctly according to your wall design.
Our most popular custom wall decal sizes are:
- 36″ x 24″ – “Poster size” decals are great for temporary signage, announcing a new offer for your customers, or for displaying smaller graphics or images.
- 54″ x 36” – This mid-range size can display as a “centerpiece” on a large to a medium-sized wall. It’s great for easy to read directional signage and is noticeable from afar.
- 72″ x 48″ – Ideal for making a statement. This size allows people to see your message clearly or showcase a stunning design.

For smaller projects, custom wall decals are easy to install yourself. We deliver your custom wall decals on easy to remove the backing to guarantee installation is simple and straightforward.
- Make sure your decal is at room temperature.
- Prepare your surface. Ensure it’s clean and dry.
- Once the surface is prepared, mark where your design will be displayed using something you can easily remove (such as masking tape).
- Peel off the paper backing revealing the sticky surface.
- Carefully place your sticker onto the desired surface pressing firmly.
- Thoroughly press the sticker to the surface and make sure to apply pressure across the entire decal to ensure proper adhesion.
- Continue to slowly remove the backing and work your way across the full decal apply pressure as you peel the backing.
- If desired, you can use a squeegee to more easily adhere the decal to the surface.
- After you’ve ensured the sticker is in place without bubbles or creases, gently remove any remaining masking tape.
- The adhesion is instant, but allow up to 24 hours before cleaning the graphic.
Feel free to contact the Wallcovering Installers Association if you are interested in having an outside professional install your decal.
Life Span of Custom Wall Decals
Our custom wall decals have a lifespan of:
- Indoors: 5+ years
- Outdoors: 1+ years
Keep in mind that unpredictable and severe weather or extreme conditions may negatively impact the lifespan of your decal.
Proper installation and care will only add to their durability and life span. Don’t forget, investing in a laminate often extends the life of your decal.
Caring for Your Custom Wall Decals
These custom wall decals are easy to wash with a slightly damp, gentle cloth. Do not use strong cleaners or scrubs that will scratch the surface or cause the decal to peel away from the surface.

Great job on all our wall vinyls, timeline, frosting of our offices and the installation. The creative team did a great job coming up with beautiful graphics that were on point with our overall vision. The attention to detail for all of the installs was terrific. Mark was not happy with image quality of one of our vinyls on the first installation so he recommended a different image of higher quality and re-did it free of charge. Thank you for everything!!
David Murillo, Job Options –
I’ve been impressed with how well the auto graphics have been holding up. All the decals are still complete and looking sharp. We haven’t had to replace any of the letters yet and everyone has loved the way our vehicles look with Coastal Creative’s designs. They were very simple to install…after a couple YouTube videos lol The signs looked badass after we mounted them on the fence.
Caleb Daggett, FEFA –
Stacey with Coastal Creative was super nice and helpful, and the entire process was quick and easy. Once I approved their rendering of the wall logo for my office, the installers were there within a few days to put it up, and they were in and out in 10 minutes! Logo looks great and I highly recommend these folks.

Heather Martin, 18 Doors –
So thrilled with Coastal Creative! They created this awesome die cut vinyl logo for 18Doors new office space. It changed the entire look and feel of the office. Mark, Amanda and Beau were amazing to work with and they turned the project around quickly and professionally. Highly recommend them for any commercial printing needs.
Matthew Turner, Mammoth Resorts –
We’ve done a couple jobs with Coastal. On the last one, we had a scheduled install date during a remodel but plans changed and Coastal was able to accommodate a new, much shorter time frame. Install of a very large interior piece went smoothly and looks great, with great communication the whole time.
We’ve also done exterior pieces with them, and are very happy with the results.
VTK, Marriott International –
Coastal Creative is an amazing printing company that has the capabilities to create and print whatever your organization needs are. These images represent a 10′ x 40′ wall with marketing collateral about our renovation. A great and cost effective way to hide construction walls while showcasing what’s planned ahead. Great company that can do anything you need for printing and marketing your brand!
Nora Crivello, Westpak –
