I am a HUGE fan of decals, and I've tried a lot of brands from different stores and vendors- these are great! I put these up in my daughters' Paris themed room, and it looks amazing over their bunk bed. It measures almost the whole length, so it's probably 5'5" or close to it when the buildings are aligned like in the picture. My daughters' bedroom wall is a white, flat paint, and the walls have no texture, so I had ZERO problem making this look, Oh la la. The decals stuck just fine the first try, and I also had to unstick (barely) one building, because I didn't like the alignment. My set has a clear border, not white. Also, it arrived rolled up as another reviewer mentioned, so I laid it flat and placed heavy books on it for half a day, and it was no problem, the stickers were flat as the walls ;) I wish I could put this in my room, but that's a tad repetitive. 4/5 stars because I didn't like that it was shipped rolled like a poster and I had to flatten it myself so that it didn't come off of the wall like it did for another reviewer. Thank goodness people give advice and reviews so that I can learn for their experience. GET THIS- it's beautiful and really dresses up the room.
The picture is misleading - this decal is actually half the size! Also the packing states it is intended to be used on glass, acrylic, etc. but it does not mentioned anything about walls. I guess that is why it does NOT stick to my daughter's bedroom walls. The packaging did not look like the one pictured on the main page. It only came with one kite and the buildings were different. The seller I purchased it from was Ypper. Not all sellers are the same, so just be careful on who you purchase it from.
I have used wall decals before and this by far are the worst I have ever used. The first sign should of been the packaging - they came in a cellophane wrap package that resembles something you can buy in a dollar store. They peel off the sheets like "school" stickers, not like the good vinyl quality stickers/decals where you have to carefully apply them as you peel off the backing. This is probably the reason they constantly keep coming off the wall. I finally had to buy spray adhesive to get the stickers to stick. I figured I could always just scrap them off and repaint the wall when the time comes to change the theme of the room, I was not about to let my money go to waste!
Package took a while, package was wrapped in a tube form and tapped up which I didn't like. Packaged sloppy. When I opened package I started sticking them on the wall in my daughters room. I did noticed immediately that the decals looked old and used and bent. They started falling from the wall. I took the decals and stuck them back on cheap adhesive. I'm going to send them back, very cheap. I have bought several before and they felt thick almost like hard plastic and stuck to wall immediately. These decals were thin feel and wrinkly likening the have been used. Definitely will send them back.
After it wouldn't stick in the dining room where we were having our Parisian birthday lunch, I contacted the seller and explained how I had to use scotch tape and it ended up looking a little tacky and how disappointed I was that I wouldn't be able to use them to decorate my daughters bedroom after the party. The seller responded very quickly and immediately shipped out another set. It arrived just a couple days later and this time they stuck perfectly to her bedroom wall. Not sure if its just the kitchen/bathroom paint that it has a hard time with, or if I just got a bum set, but this new one is PERFECT! My 10 year old loves her Paris themed room, and these stickers really make it work. I highly recommend ordering these. If, like some of the other reviewers, you get a bad set, you can be confident that this seller will make it right!
These look really great up, but so far, they aren't sticking very well. However, I ordered a new set because when the postman delivered the first one, he bent the tube to get it in my mailbox. It damaged some of the stickers. So I will change my rating if the next order sticks better, but not holding my breath. Even the ones that weren't bent are not staying in the wall very well.
I really liked the stickers and the way that they looked once placed on my bathroom wall but I've only had them up for two days and they are peeling off already. I've been finding myself trying to relay them to the wall. No luck.. When I go back another one is coming off.
The decal last very long, and looked amazing on my wall. The length was what was expected, and the color was pretty dark, and looked like a great silhouette. My only complaint was that the edged were rugged, because of the art, not the print. But the skyline looked good, and was a great addition to my room.
I have other decals and have never had a problem till I purchased this set of decals. The design is nice and they did not have a white border like many people said... But they don't stick to ANYTHING. Even glass. I tried plaster, drywall, windows, mirrors and even the flat sides of my newly installed kitchen cabinets, these decals stick to nothing.
