We reserve the right to refuse any order which we feel is inappropriate or inconsistent with the values of our company.

Damage to Surfaces

Trading Phrases is not responsible for any damage incurred by applying or removing our vinyl designs by the customer to any wall or surface. Careful attention is needed when applying or removing vinyl. Refer to the application instructions included with your order and our FAQ page for further directions. We recommend using a hair dryer when removing both decals and mirror packs, as it helps loosen the glue holding the designs on the wall. 

Please note that are printed decals (on white and clear adhesive vinyl) are meant to be permanent.  They may damage your paint when they are removed.
