Do not apply the wall decals on a newly painted surface, leave for 6 weeks to dry.

Grab the decal and lay it on a flat surface. Using a credit card smoothen any wrinkles that may be on the decal. Flip it over and repeat the process. If the decal curls up you can use books to weigh it down. All of this is in order to ensure the decal is stuck to the transfer tape that will make applying wall decal easier.
