What are PVC-Free Wall Decals?
PVC-free wall decals are decorative decals or stickers that are safe and eco-friendly. We use responsibly sourced HP PVC-free wallpaper. The material is sourced from well-managed forests and contains 10% recycled content. It is environmentally safe, odorless, and printed with GREENGUARD Children & Schools CertifiedSM inks. Plus, it is easy to install and remove from walls by simply using water.
PVC-free wall decals are perfect for a wide range of uses including nurseries, schools, doctor offices, areas for kids, and a great solution for any business that wants to go green or offer a safer environment for their customers. It’s also great for in-home nursery rooms or any child’s room!
This innovative new product is the top choice of healthcare facilities and eco-conscious businesses around the world. This wallpaper is every bit as vibrant and rich as standard materials used for wall murals.
Top Benefits of PVC-Free Wall Decals
Looking for a non-toxic wall decal solution? PVC-free wall decals are the top choice for ensuring health and safety. Indoor air quality (IAQ) is incredibly important for keeping your customers, clients, and products healthy while indoors. Simply stick one of our PVC-free wall decals on your wall to safely update a blank wall!
Our PVC-free wall decals don’t have phthalates. Most wall decals are made using PVC that contains additives like phthalates that help to soften plastic and make it more flexible. However, phthalates can cause adverse health effects. For example, many studies show that phthalates have endocrine-disrupting properties and can have a negative impact on health, especially in young children.
If you are looking to go green, PVC-free wall decals are the way to go. Made with only FSC®-certified paper from responsibly managed forests and containing paper with 10% recycled post-consumer waste, PVC-free is the responsible choice.
PVC-free decals are mold and mildew resistant, so you can use them in a wide range of locations including humid areas like bathrooms with no problem.
Both water-resistant and flame resistant, our PVC-free wall decals are sure to last. If used indoors (away from the sun) they have a 20+ year lifespan and if on a commercial window display (in the sun) they can last up to 3 years.
We can custom print any graphic or photograph to PVC-free wallpaper to use as a wall mural or decal. We use vibrant GREENGUARD Children & Schools CertifiedSM inks that leave a beautiful matte finish.

Installation Steps for PVC-free Decals
- Make sure your decal is at room temperature.
- Prepare the wall surface. Ensure it’s clean and dry.
- Once the surface is prepared, mark where your design will be displayed using something you can easily remove (such as masking tape).
- With your decal printed side face-down, spray the back of your PVC free decal material with water. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. During this time you can spray additional panels if necessary and time permitting.
- After five minutes, you can carefully lift your panel. Line up the top edge to where your panel needs to go. Carefully press the decal onto the desired surface pressing firmly to secure the decal to the wall.
- Thoroughly press the sticker to the surface and make sure to apply pressure across the entire decal to ensure proper adhesion.
- If desired, you can use a squeegee to more easily adhere the decal to the surface and press out any air pockets or bubbles.
- Using the damp sponge, gently clean the surface and edges of the decal to clean it of any excess adhesive.
- If you have additional panels or decals to install, you can move on to the next and repeat the process.
- Trim any excess decal material with the razor knife, if necessary.
- The adhesion is instant, but allow up to 24 hours for full adhesion.

Your top questions about custom PVC-free wall murals
Are PVC wall decals or stickers safe?
In general, PVC wall decals are the standard choice and very affordable. There are many different types of vinyl wall decal materials, so it depends on what kind of material each company chooses to use.
If you are concerned about the safety of PVC wall decals for your home or business, always ask questions about whether the product contains additives that you are concerned about. VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), phthalates, and certain flame retardants can be a cause for concern.
The best thing to do if you are concerned about the hazards that PVC material may cause is to choose PVC-free material instead.
How do you remove PVC free wall decals?
PVC free wall decals should easily peel away from the wall. Use water to help make the removal process easier.
