One of the best things about ROBLOX is just how customizable it is. It’s a space where you can express yourself from server to server. One of the best ways to do that is to use decals to assign custom images to objects in the world. You can change a boring wall to a wall with a picture of your favorite sci-fi spaceship or a cute and cuddly kitten.

What if my decal isn’t approved?
Roblox values four specific community standards: safety; civility and respect; fairness and transparency; security and privacy. Keep these in mind when you create your decal. Remember that there are lots of children on ROBLOX, and everything should be family-friendly. It’s also important to remember that kindness matters a lot in the game. If you keep it clean and kind, you won’t have a problem getting approval.
If you’re experiencing an issue with your decals, the fix is probably pretty simple.
If all the decals on a server appear blurry, it’s probably a connection issue. Try logging off, resetting your network, and then logging back in to see whether the decals look clearer. If you see blurry images throughout Roblox, consider doing some troubleshooting.
My Decal Never Gets Approved
You shouldn’t upload an image that you find through a search. Instead, it needs to be something you’ve changed and made your own. If you just grabbed an image from a search engine, it might not be approved.
Other than that, it might just be a matter of time. All you can do if your decal isn’t being approved is wait to hear from the moderators. If more than a week has gone by without a message, you could try reaching out to ROBLOX support.
Explain the issue and consider linking to a copy of the decal on Imgur or a similar site. That way, it’s easy for the moderator to find the image you’re asking about.
How can I add a decal in-game more easily?
You can use the Spray Paint device to add decals to areas that allow them easily. You have to use the asset ID to apply them. You can buy the Spray Paint device from the shop.
