GIVEAWAY IS OVER, WINNERS ANNOUNCED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.
When I go to someone’s house do you want to know the FIRST thing I notice? It’s their home decor, the decorations, what’s on the wall. If you’re in “the loop” you’ll know that vinyl lettering on the wall is very big right now. People love the have little sayings on their walls in the kitchen, living room, bedroom, mud room, everywhere! Vinyl can be expensive though. I was contacted by WallJems Wall Decals asking if I would like to review some of their products. I couldn’t say no to wall decals and all the absolutely amazing products they had!
It was so hard for me to choose just one thing from all they had. So I narrowed it down to 3 and told them to send me what they feel they should. I got all 3 things in the mail! I was oh so surprised! The 3 things I got were:
-An aluminum sign-I asked for customization on this one. And they answered well!
-Wall decal saying-I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.
-Wall Decal-with my last name.
I couldn’t wait to see what I got and I was so impressed when I got them in the mail!
Before I get into what I got and I want to talk a little bit about the company. The first great thing about this company is the service. They are so nice and will do anything to please you! I am so happy to have met and talked to such great people through all of this.
Secondly they will customize anything for you! If they don’t have it, you can ask for it and they’ll give it to you. (If it’s a wall decal that is!)
Now I am going to add my thoughts on the actual products and what I thought of them.
My first and most favorite thing I got from Wall Jems was my aluminum sign. I will get our family pics up once I receive them. These type of signs are great for pictures!!
This is the item I customized. The sign that they were selling said, “She said YES!” Well I already said yes…3 years ago. So I didn’t have a need for that. But I did have a need for another saying, and that saying is, “Mommy’s Due with Baby #2.” Well I guess I just announced this to the whole internet world….I’m pregnant. Plain as ever, but I announced it an adorably cute way right?! Thanks WallJems!
When I asked if we could do that saying they were quick to respond with a yes!
As I said before, they let you pick the colors. Put picking colors for the sign made me VERY intimidated. After much thought I finally told them to surprise me with the colors, and that I trusted their instincts. I made the right decision asking them to make it. It turned out so lovely, don’t ya think? They even sent me a proof image through email to make sure I saw it before they shipped it off and sent it to me.
When I got the package in the mail (they sent this separately from my wall decals) it was securely wrapped with several layers. It made me happy to know that they know some packages go through a beating through the mail. Because some people don’t “handle your stuff with care”. But no one could of messed this package up, it was wrapped like a pro! I was very impressed with that.
Let’s get talking about the vinyl that I got because that’s really what WallJems is! My vinyl came in a tall box (both of them) and they were rolled up in a nice way that didn’t crinkle or mess up the vinyl. The vinyl was very large and I was scared I was going to mess up and the whole thing would go to waste. (I’ve had some bad experiences with vinyl!) I was happy that it came with a FULL page of step by step instructions.
They also give you masking tape to hold your vinyl up, so you can see if it’s straight or not. They put just enough on a stick and you can use it as you put it up. At first I had no idea what the stick was for and why there was tape on there, until after we put it up of course. Oh, we also realized daughter was probably a little hungry because that stuff was more slobbery than if a dog had had it!
When you put the vinyl up they advise you to make sure the wall is clean. I figured my wall was clean until we started peeling off the backing….it was having a rough time staying on the wall. SO, word to the the wise. Wash your wall, even if you think it’s clean. It won’t stick very well if you don’t and will be much harder to make sure everything is perfect.
Once you have everything set up you can take off the back. My husband and I found it easiest for the both of us to take the backing off. But we realized we could taken the whole backing off then taped it up but we did it hard way.
Each vinyl piece I got came with 2 yellow applicators (above picture) to help smooth the vinyl down once the backing is off. This was perfect because my husband and I could both work on it and it was much faster when we both did it.
It took us a while to put it up because we didn’t wash the wall. But we were very impressed that the vinyl never tore. Which was good in our case because it wasn’t sticking to the wall very good. If we were taking the front part off and the vinyl would stay on, we’d just move back slowly and it would turn out fine. So even if you have trouble getting it to stick the vinyl won’t tear which will make you have A MUCH more enjoyable experience!
We are so loving our vinyl pieces and are so happy with what we received. If you ever need vinyl Wall Jems is the place to be! You can follow them on Facebook, they do great offers every now and then, so you’ll want to check them out.
