What are the Height Charts made from?
While most wall decals and nursery wall decorations are made from vinyl, Tinyme Height Charts are made from a fine-weave fabric that doesn't stretch.
How do I apply the Height Charts?
How to apply
Before applying your height chart you should make sure your surface is clean and not dusty. For freshly painted walls you should allow a three week drying period.
Start by measuring from the ground to the bottom of where the height chart will be placed. You can use the handy positioning guides on your height chart to measure the correct distance. Don't stress too much – our height charts are removable and repositionable.
Next, carefully peel the height chart sticker off the backing paper and stick onto the wall. Gently rub over the surface of the wall decal with a soft cloth or with the back of your hand from the centre outwards, pushing out any air bubbles.
How to remove
To remove, carefully lift a corner and whilst folding the sticker back on itself slowly peel off. Our wall decals shouldn't damage your wall, but it's important to be careful when removing in case the wall has been poorly prepared before painting. If you are concerned, or if the wall offers resistance, heat with a hairdryer while removing. The backing paper is a good place to store your decals.
What surfaces will the Height Charts stick to?
Unlike most height charts, Tinyme height charts / growth charts are made from a fine-weave fabric that doesn't stretch and will stick to most clean flat surfaces and even some textured surfaces
And when your kid out grows the height chart, you can simply stick the height chart back onto its backing paper, and roll it up as a keepsake for great memories.
