“Acclimatising” the sticker to the room

To make it easier to place the sticker and ensure that it remains flat once it has been affixed, we recommend that you wait 24 hours before affixing it. This gives it time to adapt to the ambient temperature in the room. For the best possible effect, we recommend a temperature of approximately 20° (+/- 5°). It is also advisable to avoid extreme changes in temperature as this could lead to the sticker becoming unstuck.

Choose the surface on which you’d like to place your sticker

HOMESTICKERS Blackboard are easy to fix on furniture units, household electrical goods, walls and doors (smooth, clean and dry). Wait at least 4 weeks before you fix a sticker on a freshly-painted wall or surface.
Materials such as bare concrete, unpainted plaster and plasterboard, silicone surfaces, coated surfaces, roughcast surfaces, fibreglass wall coverings and matt paint are not suitable. There is a wide range of wallpapers on the market and these all have different characteristics and qualities. Before putting up your wallpaper, we strongly recommend that you carry out a test to check that the sticker will adhere properly and that it won’t tear the paper when you remove it.

Testing the surface for safety´s sake

If you have any doubts about the surface you’re using, we recommend that you cut out a piece of the sticker sheet on which there is no pattern and stick it to the surface. Wait 24 hours and check the result (affixing and removal). Do not affix your sticker close to a heat source as this could affect the properties of the glue.

(1)

Clean the chosen surface (1)

It is important that you carefully clean the surface you have chosen to place your sticker, even if it looks clean to you. Any dust, wood shavings or grease on the surface will prevent the sticker from adhering properly.

Affixing the pattern  (2)   (3)

Carefully remove each pattern from the sheet and place it on the surface, without pressing hard, to see whether you like the positioning. When you are happy with your composition, stick the patterns down, using a soft cloth and firm pressure, starting from the middle of the pattern and working outwards to get rid of any air bubbles. Finally, make sure that edges of the pattern are well stuck down.

Maintenance

HOMESTICKERS Blackboard are made on a washable, water-resistant polypropylene film and may be cleaned with a soft, wet sponge. Do not use abrasive products and materials. Dry with a soft cloth.

Easy to remove

As the product has been designed for frequent use, we have chosen to use highly adhesive glue. To unstick these HOMESTICKERS, we recommend that you hold a hairdryer (in the “low heat” position) about 20 cm from the sticker to heat the glue: the sticker will then come off easily.

Storage conditions

To get the best use out of them, HOMESTICKERS may be kept for up to 6 months prior to use, as long as they are kept in their packaging, in a dry place away from light. Avoid extreme changes in temperature.

NOUVELLES IMAGES may not be held liable for any direct or indirect damage caused by the abnormal or non-compliant use of these HOMESTICKERS Blackboard, especially in the event of damage to the surface to which the sticker has been fixed.
