Pop & Lolli helping South African children in need

With every set of Pop & Lolli decals purchased, (it’s) chic 2 change will provide educational materials and resources to positively influence a South African child in need.

We donated over $10,000 to our sister charity (it’s) Chic 2 Change and have had the opportunity to change children’s lives in South Africa immensely.  With those funds we were able to provide a high school with a roof for an assembly space, doors to classrooms in time for a brutal winter, electricity to each classroom (which includes a few safety upgrades to securely encase open live wires), as well as menstrual cups (10yr life-cycle) to almost all 800 girls in the school which enabled a more sanitary environment for them to not miss a week of school every month. And of course the work continues.

There are so many amazing designs here. You have to check them out!

Some Questions regarding Pop & Lolli’s Wall Decals

Why are Pop & Lolli’s fabric wall decals safer than the common vinyl wall stickers and decals?

Unlike common regular vinyl decals, Pop & Lolli chic fabric wall stickers does not contain any of the PVC’s used in the manufacturing of vinyl and it maintains a very eco-friendly water based adhesive. The material has no detrimental concerns of Phthalates and the patent adhesive has no Phthalates. The product also contains no PVS. There is no Glycol-ether in the product and there is no Formaldehyde in the adhesive.

Unlike the common regular vinyl decals, Pop & Lolli chic fabric wall stickers utilizes the new Eco-Sol Max inks, which are solvent inks that provide durability and UV resistance, but do not contain the harsh chemicals used in mild and full solvent printing. Per the manufacturer, various independent tests and studies show the material is environmentally safe and bio-degradable over time.

Unlike the common regular vinyl decals, Pop & Lolli chic fabric wall stickers are much more re-usable friendly for many many many many many many … times, depending on the conditions of the surface and the environment.

Are your stickers manufactured in Los Angeles?

Our products are designed at our Studio in Los Angeles, but our production facility is located on the East Coast.

How often do you come out with new designs? Any plans on coming out with a line for older children?

We usually celebrate our birthday with the launch of a new collection.  This year, with our second birthday, we are launching new decal collection, geared to older children as well, as well as entirely new set of products.  Stay tuned.  We promise to continue with the Pop & Lolli philosophy of BIGGER is BETTER, and delivering a quality, well designed, excellent performing, interactive product which is certain not to disappoint.

Is it a one time application? What if you want to move them later or if you put them on crooked?

These fabric decals are very re-usable, very removable, and many times re-positionable! Once you place it on your wall you will be very pleasantly surprised to see how well and easy it sticks to the wall and removes and sticks to the wall and removes and sticks to the wall…

Unlike the common regular vinyl decals, Pop & Lolli™ experience-design decals will not shrink, curl, peel, rip easily, stretch, wrinkle, crack, harden or leave a residue over time. *It is noted that certain areas are compromised in its strength due to the shape, this results in weaker corners.

Unlike the common regular vinyl decals, Pop & Lolli™ experience-design decals will easily pull free, if it turns in and sticks to itself.

Unlike the common regular vinyl decals, Pop & Lolli™ chic fabric wall stickers are much more re-usable friendly for many many many many many many … times, depending on the conditions of the surface and the environment.  Please just remember that it is still a sticker.  Ensure your environment and surfaces are always free of dust, otherwise it may loose tackiness over time.

Are they easy to put on without folding them?

YES!  Definitely.  Without a doubt.  The feedback we most often get apart from customers loving the designs, and boldness of the large life size decals, are their surprise at truly how super easy it is to adhere to the wall. Unlike common regular vinyl decals, Pop & Lolli™ chic fabric wall stickers are ultra easy to install and play with.  No instructions needed. No tools necessary. Just peel and stick.

Any tips for getting the perfect layout in your child’s room?

Application is a simple 3-step process of peel, place, and then smooth it with your hand. It can be rearranged and easily removed numerous times. Freshly painted walls should be completely dry before applying the product. Pop & Lolli™ requires to wait at least 60 days after painting before you apply our fabric decals to the newly painted wall. Even though the paint will feel dry to the touch soon after it’s been painted, it is still wet and will react with the eco-friendly, non-toxic water-based adhesive making the edges of the decals not stick properly. Drying time depends on the environment, the time of year, the number of layers of paint and the paint brand used.

For the very large and over-sized stickers with some complicated shapes, expect to need a helping hand or two, place it on the wall and start from one end to gently smooth the sticker out as you work your way to the other end.

ADDITIONAL TIPS:

After the decals are placed into position on the wall.  We may suggest to use a sturdy object, like a credit card, and firmly apply pressure on it smoothing back and forth over the entire decal to firmly press it in place. This will ensure no loose edges.

Since our collections arrive on large over-sized sheets of paper, it may be sometimes difficult to work with such a big sheet.  We suggest you cut each decal from the backing sheet whilst still on the backing paper.  For storing purposes later on, we may also suggest to write on the back of these backing cut-outs with a pencil, not a sharpie/marker, which character/decal need to be returned to it to make sure it fits properly on the backing during storage.

Larger decals, like the trees, we would recommend you do the step above.  Then hold it in place right where it needs to be positioned on the wall WITH the backing paper still on.  Peel the backing paper (a small bit only) away from the decal at the top, and fold it over.  Place the small exposed sticky side of the decal on the wall and with the one hand gently pull the folded backing paper more and more away from the decal whilst at the same time smoothing down the decal and pressing firmly against the wall with the other hand.

If there happen to be a few small bubbles (trapped air) after you placed the decal on the wall. Do not fear!  No need to remove it and try again.  Simply use a sharp object, like a needle or pin tack and prick it gently to make a tiny hole.  Then simply smooth out with your thumb.  The hole will help the air escape and ensure you have a perfectly smooth decal.
