Decal

The price depends on how the logotype looks, how big the print should be and where it will be mounted. Please include a photo of the location where the logotype is going to be installed. The photo should be taken straight on. Measure off the width and height of the ceiling or the window. Send us photo, measurements and logotype so that we can reply with a quote.
Your Monroe Design wall decal normally does not leave any marks on a painted wall. The heat from a hairdryer eases the removal if it has been mounted for a long time. Decal mounted on glass does leave some marks however, the easiest way to remove these is by using a razor and/or a scotch bright sponge soaked in water and washing-up liquid. Removal of an old decal mounted on top of wallpaper usually leads to rips.
Our standard vinyl can only be used once. We also have a premium vinyl that can be moved around many times. Instead of the glue in the standard, the premium has microbic suction cups that easily stick to walls, furniture and glass. Contrary to the standard vinyl, the premium one is not produced in ready-to-go colors and has to be printed before cut. This reusable vinyl incurs an initial higher price which may be worth it depending your application.
Depending on which vinyl you choose, the supplier offers 5-7 years warranty. As long as the installation is done correctly, our wall decal / window graphic last for several years. However, if something like a hard window scraper rubs against the edges of the decal, these may unstick. Direct sunlight may shorten the durability on all decals. Especially durable vinyl is used for outdoor installation.

We have listed our best tips for mounting wall decals and wall graphics in the instructional video and the PDF-file below. Please contact us if you want to book a professional installer or if you have any questions.

Vector is based on lines and can be enlarged infinitely without losing quality. A professionally designed logo is always made in vector format such as EPS and possibly PDF. Pixel-based formats like JPG, PNG, PSD or TIFF, just like photographs, are limited to a specific resolution and therefore can not be used for everything. We always deliver logos in vector.

Print

Four-color process printing consists of the four colors known as CMYK – Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key color which pretty much always is black. Sometimes when you want a special definite hue, one can use a so-called spot-color. The color has a special number in a printed color libraries. Pantone Matching System, PMS, is most common. PMS enables the printers to know exactly what tone to be printed.
We prefer the logo in vector format like EPS and possibly PDF. Please send us all versions of the logo that you have. If the logo is in a pixel-based format such as JPG, PNG, PSD or TIFF, we will take that too. Depending on what is to be printed, we might need to vectorize the logo for you.
