What are Custom Wall Murals?
Custom wall murals are the perfect solution to liven up any space. Designed for easy installation, these high-quality murals are printed on vinyl adhesive for a hassle-free upgrade. You can choose any photo, art, or graphic design you like to fit any size wall.
Whether large or small scale, these wall murals function much like wallpaper. They can easily transform and enhance the look and feel of your space. However, they are entirely customizable according to your preferences. Plus, they are easy to install, remove, and perfect for displays that might need to be changed frequently.
We print with fade-resistant UV inks and our designers are happy to help you make your design come to life!
Top Benefits of Custom Wall Murals
Murals painted directly on a wall that is ruined or outdated are trickier to replace.
One of the biggest benefits of a custom wall mural is that they are incredibly durable while also inexpensive to replace or change. It’s less labor-intensive and time-consuming to install a vinyl wall mural than hand-painting one of the same size.
Caring for wall murals is also much easier as they function much like normal walls. Hand-painted walls can be tricky to clean because you risk ruining the artwork. You don’t have to worry about that with wall murals printed on easy-to-clean vinyl.
Plus, wall murals can add a stunning and creative element to any space. Check out our post with inspiring wall mural ideas or learn about creative ways to update your office with wall murals.

Custom Wall Mural Surface Options
Our vinyl custom wall murals adhere best to dry-wall and non-porous surfaces. They can also be applied to wood, stone, concrete, and other surfaces.
However, if the wall is textured you risk tearing the vinyl and weakening the adhesive.
If you are not sure whether your wall surface is suitable or not, give us a call directly so we can discuss your options.
Sizing for Custom Wall Murals
Wall murals often are designed for covering spacious stretches of walls. Our sizing options are virtually unlimited, but common sizes range from 6” to 240” wide and high. So whether you need to fill in a small nook or cover a vast wall, we can work with you to get you what you need.
For big walls, we print multiple decals that are then pieced together for a seamless mural. There are also ways to utilize empty space between designs to create neat panels or grids of graphics for extra edge.
Our custom wall murals can also be cut in any shape you like. That includes curved edges and die-cut shapes.
Our team is available to deliver and install our custom wall murals anywhere in Southern California, including San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles. For certain corporate and enterprise projects our team can fly to your business.
Custom wall murals are also easy to install yourself. You may need an additional person to assist you depending on the size of your mural.
- Prepare your wall surface. Thoroughly dust and clean.
- Ensure your wall is completely dry.
- Mark the position on the wall where you will put the wall mural.
- When the surface is ready, remove part of the [color?] backing from the vinyl, only a few inches.
- Apply the exposed adhesive back of the mural to the wall and press down firmly to adhere.
- Continue peeling the backing slowly down the mural a few inches at a time. Smoothly apply pressure to adhere the mural to the wall surface.
- If wrinkles appear, gently use your fingers to encourage the air and wrinkles to smooth out. Don’t use too much force in order to allow the trapped air to dissipate. The mural is not repositionable so take extra care not to allow wrinkles.
- If working with multiple panels, repeat the process for each panel until you’ve completed your mural. Make sure to verify the position to align your image correctly.
- If necessary, cut back any excess material around ceilings, trim, and wall edges using a straightedge and sharp blade.
- The adhesion is instant, but allow up to 24 hours for maximum adhesion.
Note: Do not apply to a freshly painted wall. If you’ve recently painted the wall you would like to install the mural on, for best results allow the wall to dry and cure for 3-4 weeks before installing a wall decal.
Lifespan of Custom Wall Murals
Where you install your custom wall mural will have a large impact on its lifespan.
These murals are able to withstand a wide range of temperatures, from -20°F to +150°F. However, weather conditions for outdoor murals can greatly affect their longevity. Generally, outdoor murals can last up to 2 years before they begin to show wear and tear. Indoor murals can last up to 5.
Adding lamination to your mural will extend this length of time. Proper dusting and cleaning will also help extend the longevity, plus it will keep your mural from accumulating dirt and prevent it from looking faded.
Caring for Your Custom Wall Murals
Properly dusting and cleaning your custom wall mural will help extend its longevity and appearance.
Regularly dust your wall mural, especially around the edges. If debris gets under your mural it will compromise the adhesiveness.
Only use dampened gentle sponges or cloths and lightly scrub to remove build-up of dirt and debris. Do not use harsh or abrasive chemicals that contain alcohol, bleach, citrus additives, or ammonia. These types of products can erode the inks and the material. Simply using soapy water will do the job and keep your wall mural surface clean.

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!!

We have a small company here in Del Mar and wanted a mural to really give the space a nice feeling and communicate our brand. The team at Coastal Creative was amazing and took on all aspects for us from the design, to the printing, to the installation. I would never have been able to figure all of that out on my own. The mural just blends into the wall and looks seamlessly integrated. What a difference it made. If you are looking for complete office mural service this is the best in the market. 5 Stars
Ryan Kowalski, Crunch Fitness –
Coastal Creative has done a number of graphics and banners for my fitness club and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The team at coastal creative works diligently and efficiently. The graphics are brighter and more detailed than our previous displays. The price for the work was also a lot cheaper than the previous companies we used. Mark is professional and always answered my calls if I needed anything or had any questions. We will continue to utilize the services with Coastal Creative and have I no intentions of looking elsewhere.

Great work, fantastic team. Thanks so much for helping get our project done on a fast timeline!
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.
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.

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!
