Wall Monkeys’ vinyl stick-on decals can adhere to all kinds of flooring, including some carpet surfaces. For businesses and companies with high-traffic carpeted areas, floor decals can be a great way to liven up a space, or a great way to keep customers safe with social distancing decals.

To make the most out of your Wall Monkeys, here are some basic guidelines for sticking your decals to carpet surfaces:

  • Our decals stick most securely to low pile and durable carpet floors
  • Avoid sticking your decals to high pile and plush carpeting for the best performance
  • Thoroughly clean and dry carpet flooring before applying your decal to remove any dust or debris
  • Make sure your Wall Monkey’s self-adhesive backing is securely smoothed over your carpet surface with no air bubbles

Hard Floors

Just like carpeting, Wall Monkeys can peel-and-stick to all kinds of hard flooring surfaces. Most wood, tile, laminate, smooth concrete, vinyl and linoleum surfaces are all safe places to securely stick your decals.

To make sure your Wall Monkeys vinyl decal stays put on your floor surfaces, make sure to clean and completely dry the area before application. Start from one corner and smooth out your decal across your flooring, smoothing out any air bubbles. With proper application, your Wall Monkeys floor decal will stay put even in areas that see decent amount of foot traffic.

The smooth surfaces of whiteboards are perfect for Wall Monkeys. Add a custom decal to the whiteboard in your classroom, restaurant, office or home to add an extra element of personalization.

Remember to make sure your surface is completely dry before applying your decal to ensure it sticks properly to slick surfaces like whiteboards.

Our durable vinyl decals are built to stick and stay on any smooth surface, including windows! Show off your political opinion, get into the seasonal spirit by decorating your windows with holiday decals, or get creative by creating your own custom window decals.

*It’s important to keep in mind that Wall Monkeys have adhesive on the reverse side of the decal. In order to be seen from the outside, the decal will need to be placed on the outside of the window.

Wall Monkeys are built to peel, stick, stay and be easily removed from your walls without causing any damage! Here are some basic guidelines for placing your decals on your walls:
  • Wall Monkeys decals stick best to smooth walls and surfaces like drywall
  • For walls with light texture, your decals will most likely stick and stay in place, just be sure to avoid areas with too much texture and remember to smooth out any air bubbles
  • For heavily textured walls and cement or brick surfaces, decals may have trouble adhering and you should test out your decal before making a final placement
