Wall decals can range from a simple cutout to a more complex design covering the entire wall. The vinyl wall decals can be made in various different shapes and sizes, however when it needs to be very large, it will come in tiles. Ok, some people get lost there, 🙂 . Wall decals and lettering are made by a plotter cut or large format printer, the plotters machine comes from 24″ to 60″ wide and the large format printer are usually 54″ wide to 64″wide. Sorry, I almost forgot, some large format printer are 110″ wide but those kind of printer are not used to make decals and stickers, it’s mostly used to print large banners.
Ok, going back to the decals, although the printers comes up to 64″ wide, the adhesive vinyls materials (what the decals are made from) only comes 24″ to 54″ wide by 150′ long which means that, if you want a decal that says “CREATIVE SILHOUETTES IS AWESOME” (nice decal ah?) and you want it in x1 piece we could print 53″ high x 250″ long, however, if you are looking for a 8′ x 8′ wall decal full colour, it will have x2 tile (sections) and when installing it comes with 1″ overlap to align the design easy.
Also, making the wall decals in tiles, helps with the transformation, storage and installation.
