All About Altenew Decals

by Altenew

Hello, Altenew friends!

We are dropping by to bring you another inspiration-filled post about the latest product in our store – DECALS!

Comment below if you’ve seen these decals in our store and/or on social media and absolutely loved them! In case you missed it, we have recently released beautiful and elegant decals in our store. YES! We have taken a step further toward inspiring crafters with creative and innovative paper crafting products.

So, what exactly are decals?! 

If you ask Google, this is one of the many definitions of decals that you’ll get:

All decals are stickers (but not all stickers are decal). A decal is basically a decorative sticker, generally used outdoors. They are a design that can be transferred from one surface to another and will have three layers: paper on the back, the decal itself, and paper on the front.” (Source: Coby Graphics)

We know that most of you still have a lot of questions about our decals. Don’t worry – we are here to enlighten you and provide some beautiful inspiration as well!

What are these decals made of?

Altenew decals are made of clear vinyl. Some of them have a matte finish, while others have a glossy finish. The first batch of decals that we have released has sizes ranging from 3mil to 6mil.

Why the different sizes?

These decals were created with the crafter in mind. Therefore, we wanted to make sure that you can use them not just to beautify your walls, furniture, gadgets, or other space in your house, but also to adorn your handmade projects!

For instance, the Amour Decal Set – Small Sheet measures 10″ x 5″ and is made of 3mil clear vinyl. This small decal set is simply perfect for decorating your laptop, photo frames, boards, cabinets and drawers, and of course, adding some gorgeous watercolored florals to your handmade cards or layouts! Don’t believe us? Here’s some inspiration by our DT and guest designers.

Love them but not ready to commit?

Again. Take a deep breath and calm down. We’ve received quite a few concerns about this. We know that some of you live in rent-controlled apartments and are afraid our decals might “damage” the walls and that they won’t be easy to remove. To answer this simply, Altenew decals are made of repositionable and removable adhesive.

Need proof? Watch the video below where our very own Jen had a little oopsie when she first put the decal on her desk. You can see how easily she was able to remove the decal (without leaving any sticky residue on the surface of the desk) and reposition it, therefore fixing the mistake!

She used the timeless Rose Clusters Decal Set on her desk and so did our DT member Svitlana! Check out how she decorated her creative space with this set.

Oh and here’s the final result of this decal on Jen’s desk.

I’m intimidated by the large decals – are they easy to put on walls?!

Yep. We’ve heard this one too. All we can say is, we’ve got your back. Although a picture is worth a thousand words, we know that how-to videos will be more helpful in walking you through the application process. Without further ado, here are a few videos on how to apply our decals.

Aside from walls, where else can I put these decals on?

We’re so glad you asked! Cue the array of fabulous and stunning photos provided by our DT and guest designers (from our July 2019 Decal Release Blog Hop)! They have showcased how these decals can easily beautify and elevate the look of just about anything – from dark laptops and chalkboards to photo frames and drawers!
