WOOD OR PEEL AND STICK, WHICH IS BETTER?
There are benefits to both! There is nothing on the market that can replace our standard real hardwood tiles. They are truly luxurious, durable and will add value to your home or commercial project. In most cases, our wood tiles are glued down and therefore become a permanent wood floor that you will enjoy for many, many years. At Mirth we also saw a market for something fun, temporary and able to install without the aide of professional. We developed these peel and stick decals with the DYI'er in mind. A quick, easy and less expensive way to use Mirth Studio's colorful, cheerful tile patterns without the long term or larger financial commitment. That said they are sold as a “Temporary” Option. The manufacturers suggested lifespan for the substrate is 4 years.
EASE OF INSTALLATION:
Because we use a repositionable vinyl to print on, they will not harm the floor underneath. The adhesive is not very sticky but should adhere to most surfaces. If you are installing on wood, concrete or existing tiles, you must make sure the perfectly clean which means no wax or debris. If you are installing on a plywood subfloor it must be primed, sanded and cleaned before installing the Peel & Stick. Traditional 12" x 12" peel and stick tiles all work well as a subfloor.
All of our decals can also be fully customized for an additional charge. This includes resizing the decals or custom coloring.
Here at Mirth Studio, we consider ourselves to be a green company with an environmental conscious. When we learned that the silicone paper backing on our peel and stick products that keep the adhesion from being damaged was not recyclable in the USA we were super bummed! After installing the Peel & Stick decals, you end up with quite a bit of this extra material. We thought about it and developed a solution, our own recycling program, that will save those pages from being sent to a landfill. Please pack up the material neatly in the packaging it arrived in, and send it back to us. We even pay the shipping! We have figured out a way that will continually reuse these pages in the production of our products, which we believe is best thing for the environment. Thank you for participating in the effort to keep our company green!
