Our Easy Stripe wall decal product is kind of revolutionary. I mean, no-paint-required, removable vinyl wall striping? Hello. It’s genius! Don’t believe me? Check out some of these crazy cool things you can do with Easy Stripe on our blog and our Pinterest.
So it makes sense that we get a lot of questions about it. One of the biggest head scratchers though is, “How much do I need?”
Order too little and you’re forced to put your project on hold. Too much and you’ll be striping everything in your path (not a completely terrible idea).
First thing’s first, planning. How many vinyl stripes you’ll need depends entirely on your design. For the sake of keeping this simple, let’s say your wall is 8ft x 9ft (width and height, respectively) and you want to vertical stripes along the width of your wall.
*Some things to be aware of when planning: each roll of Easy Stripe has 36 feet of striping.
Now let’s get down to the nitty gritty. We know that the wall is 9ft high and each roll of striping has 36ft. You need to divide the material you have (36ft) by the material you need (9ft in length for each stripe). This will give you an idea of how many 9ft vinyl stripes you can get out of each roll of Easy Stripe. In this case, we have enough material for 4 stripes per roll because 36 ÷ 9 = 4.
Makes sense, right?!
Now, let’s focus on how many stripes you want. To be honest, this is completely up to you! In our opinion, it’s much easier to establish how many stripes you want along the width of your wall, first, then from there you can determine which stripe width and distance between each vinyl stripe is best. So, if you want 8 stripes across your wall, you’ll need 2 rolls of whichever size Easy Stripe you’d like! Because really, you can’t go wrong!
