How To Use Our Vinyl

  • Can i use your vinyl on tiled flooring?

    Our vinyl isn't like traditional lino flooring, it's only 0.5-1.2mm thick so is lighter and can be used in more areas!

    In this image above you can see it applied to ceramic tiles.

    When choosing a busier pattern to work with you will barely be able to see the grout lines.

    If your grout lines are really deep or you are choosing a block colour or less patterned design we would strongly advise you to purchase a sample first so you can see how it will look in person before commiting to a whole roll.

    Our peel & stick tiles are much thicker (2.5mm) & may be a more suitable option for you if you want a flush finish!

  • When will my order arrive?

    You can view our updated turnaround times here!

    We estimate a turnaround of 7-10 working days.

    -

    We send your orders to be printed every Monday, Wednesday & Friday & will then begin to process your order!

    -

    When should i apply my vinyl?

    We would reccomend applying your product as soon as you recieve it for best results. If the vinyl is sat in a cupboard on the backing paper for a few months over time the adhesive will dry out & may not adhere to your surface as well as it would if used as soon as its delivered.

  • Do you accept returns & refunds?

    We're confident that you're going to love your Jes Rose order but if you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch and we'll come back to you as soon as we can.

    Every printed product is custom made to order, so we're unfortunately not able to accept a return for these items

     

    We require that you purchase samples first so you can get a feel for the product before commiting to a roll of our vinyl.

    -

    The exception to this is if it arrives damaged for any reason which can happen from time to time, although we're working with our delivery partners to reduce this.

Where can you use vinyl?

The answer is almost anywhere! We strongly advise to try out a sample on the area you would like to cover with vinyl first, this way you can test it sticks, bonds to the material underneath & fits the areas athestic! Our best advice is If the sample sticks securely, your good to go!

There are of course 1000s of different surface materials out there, a few we know the vinyl will struggle to adhere to are concrete, wood & in some cases paint (this depends on paint type).

If you are looking to apply vinyl to raw surfaces like wood and concrete we advise priming/varnishing the area first or in some cases adding an underlay if the area isnt smooth! This will create almost a glossy finish and the vinyl should bond to it much better! If your surface isnt wood or concrete but has a rough/ almost dry feel to it then a primer will come in handy!

Please note:Like any product application, we always advise trying it on a discreet area of where you want to apply it first, to ensure any coating such as paint or varnish is not removed with it.

Like any adhesive product you run the risk when using vinyl that it will remove paint, varnish or damage uncoated areas like mdf etc.

Top Tip-

When using seperate sheets together in an area the vinyl needs to be overlapped ever so slightly. When the vinyl settles in it may shrink slightly & this will eliminate any gaps showing.

As always if you are unsure about your surface pop us an email & we are always here to guide you!

Measuring Up & Order Sizes

Measuring. You need to spend a good amount of time measuring what you want to cover. It sounds silly, but we've seen a few people underestimate their measurements and come up a bit short.

Note: Like any printed product, batches are very important. We cannot guarantee that orders printed at different times will match with a previous purchase.

Designs. All of our designs are completely seamless, so you can match panels of vinyl together quickly and easily. 

Ordering. Our designs are 0.6m (standard) or 0.65m (worktop size) wide and then you can order the length that you need. If you need more than 3m, you can order multiples of the sizes that you need.

Note:Our 60cm and 65cm prints are printed at slightly different aspect ratios andwill notbe seamless when combined with prints of another size.

  • Samples!

    One thing that we definitely cannot advise enough, is to order a sample. Our customers plan amazing things and we want to make sure that it's perfect. Colours can look a little different on screen than they are printed, we purchase designs from different designers who work with different colour pallets & its great to make sure the vinyl works in your certain area and to test them over a few weeks.

    As all of our prints are done bespoke for you, we're not able to accept returns on them if you don't like the colour or feel of the vinyl.

    -

    Our vinyl isn't like traditional lino flooring, it's only 0.5/1mmthick

    Some of our designs may look lighter coloured on screen before being printed so samples are a great way to know what you are getting before buying a large roll.

  • Does The Vinyl Have A Shelf Life?

    Yes.

    We would recommend applying your vinyl as soon as you receive it for best results. If the vinyl is sat in a cupboard on the backing paper for a few months over time the adhesive will dry out & will not adhere to your surface as well as it would if used as soon as its purchased.

  • Cleaning your vinyl!

    When it comes to cooking & food splattering onto your vinyl you want to clean it as soon as possible to save any acidic sauces soaking into the vinyl. We have tested our vinyl with most food spillages and most wipe off instantly. The exception is foods like turmeric, highly concentrated tomato sauces and anything super vibrant in colour which may be harder to remove. To avoid staining happening try and remove spillages as soon as possible with any normal cleaning products (apart from bleach or anything which may discolour the vinyl)

What Vinyl Type Do I Need?

We offer 3 types of vinyl for you to choose from! See below a detailed explanation to help you!

  • Standard Vinyl

    Waterproof - Yes


    Heatproof - Yes (up to around

    85 degrees c.)


    Thickness - No more than 1 mm

    Can be used on the majority of flat surfaces such as table tops, fridges and more.


    Our best advice is to try a sample, if it sticks and you are happy with how it looks then you are good to go!


    Please note:

    Like any product application, we always advise trying it on a discreet area of where you want to apply it first, to ensure any coating such as paint or varnish is not removed with it & it adheres. Vinyl will struggle to adhere to matte/un primed surfaces.

    Like any adhesive product you run the risk when using vinyl that it will remove paint, varnish or damage uncoated areas like mdf etc.

    Please note when using seperate sheets together in an area the vinyl needs to be overlapped ever so slightly so that when the vinyl settles in it may shrink slightly & this will eliminate any gaps showing.

  • Floor And Wall Vinyl

    Waterproof - Yes

    Heatproof - Yes (up to around 110 degrees c.)


    Thickness - No more than 1 mm

    This vinyl has a stickier adhesive and a non-slip coating, making it suitable for wet environments like your bathroom, painted walls or kitchen floors, or for heavily used tables, higher heat areas or worktops.

    So not only can it be used for all of the applications standard can be used for, this means it's amazing for covering all ranges of flooring such as tiles, laminate and wood. It's pretty special.

How to apply your vinyl?

Applying your vinyl is really easy. We've got some tips for you here, and you can see some of our video tutorials below!

Video Tutorials
  • Sizing-

    First, make sure your vinyl is cut to the right size. You can cut it down by measuring out your design on the back of the print, and just use scissors to cut it down to size.

    Remember the old saying, measure twice - cut once. 

    -

    Get a clean surface-

    Make sure the surface you want to apply it on is clean. You want to make sure it's clean but not damp, so make sure to remove any excess moisture off where you're going to apply your vinyl.

    -

    For a bespoke vinyl size please fill in our Custom Size Form

  • Prepare your area and the vinyl-

    Vinyl Temperature:

    Adhesive works best when slightly warm, so make sure that your vinyl is unrolled and allowed to come to room temperature if it's just been delivered, or left in a cupboard

    Time: If you're applying it onto a painted surface, make sure the paint has been allowed to settle. Paint can be dry on the surface but can take, certainly in cold weather, a number of weeks to completely dry and set.

    Surface:

    With tiles we recommended not to sand them down as this will take the varnish off the surface and the vinyl will struggle to adhere correctly.

    -

     If you're applying vinyl to a painted surface, certain paint manufacturers include additives to paint that stops anything sticking to the paint and this will include our vinyl. This includes paint that's advertised as anti-stain and wash and wear etc. Please test this with a sample before purchasing a large order.

    -

    For wooden surfaces please test with a sample first & do not sand down prior unless covering it with a varnish after as the matte surface will cause the vinyl not to stick.

    Some matte surfaces may need to be primed first as vinyl will struggle to bond with matte finishes. Samples are strongly advised to be purchased prior to test it adheres and to see if there is a need for primer.

  • Application-

    Start by peeling off a little of one edge of the vinyl.

    You can use this sticky edge to line up your design against its back drop, and then slowly remove more of the backing.

    Use our squeegee or another flat tool to smooth out the vinyl as you go, this will ensure there are no bubbles. Keep going until your whole design has been applied. If needed, trim the edges to size.

    (Note: make sure whatever tool you use doesn't scratch the surface, our squeegee is rubber and goes over smoothly and safely)


    Please note: Like any product application, we always advise trying it on a discreet area of where you want to apply it first, to ensure any coating such as paint or varnish is not removed with it.

    Like any adhesive product you run the risk when using vinyl that it will remove paint, varnish or damage uncoated areas like mdf etc.

Top Tips!

- Laid it down and it's at a bit of an angle? Don't worry, you can lift and reapply your vinyl to get it right properly.

- Applying it to a wall? For the best results, overlap a small amount of the vinyl to make sure none of the edges catch.

-Apply your product as soon as you recieve it for best results. If the vinyl is sat in a cupboard on the backing paper for a few months over time the adhesive will dry out & may not adhere to your surface
