Carpet stickers are the perfect graphic solution for carpet applications. However, they are not compatible with all types of carpet. When purchasing a carpet sticker the intended installation surface must be taken into account. Carpet stickers must only be applied to carpet with a short nap and a tight weave. Additionally, carpet graphics will only adhere to carpets with minimal texture. This is most often true of commercial carpets rather than residential carpets. Some other common surfaces for carpet stickers are low pile rugs and vehicle carpets or floor mats. With all carpets and rugs the same principles apply: the installation surface must be short, tightly woven, and minimal in texture. Carpet stickers are not meant for non-porous or smooth surfaces. Please see our floor decals if you are looking for a decal not intended for carpet. Carpet decals will not work on surfaces such as hardwood, laminate, tile, unsealed concrete, or surfaces, including carpets, that are dirty, stained (oil, chemicals, etc), or wet.
