*Talk to us about Kitchen splash-backs.
**All walls MUST BE primed / painted (to prevent issues).
I’’m not sure of my wall has been primed or painted with a repellent paint?
If you’re unsure if the wall has been painted with a Teflon or Wash & Wear paint.
We strongly recommend you prime your wall with Viponds Prep Coat and wait at least 5 days for it to dry before installing your Custom Wallpaper.
How easy is the Installation & Removal process?
Peel and Stick Wallpaper is a super easy DIY product. Installation is a simple peel on, peel off. Our wallpaper is also very forgiving so if you make a mistake you can easily reposition and start over without damaging your wall or wallpaper. We recommend to use your hand, firmly pressing onto the wall surface, don’t be afraid to apply a lot of pressure to allow your wallpaper to settle onto the wall. Peel and Stick Wallpaper adheres directly onto all smooth, clean surfaces*
You will receive an easy to follow Installation Guideline with your order.
If your walls are already primed, minimal wall preparation is required/recommended: the smooth surface needs to be cleaned, no dust or fingerprints. You can use a damp cloth to clean the wall surface or window and allow it to completely dry.
Make sure all previous cleaning solutions are completely gone before installing for best adhesion results.
Custom Wallpaper should be installed on painted walls that have been primed and finished coated. For newly painted walls, a period of at least 30 days should be provided before installation to prevent bubbling. (Allow for degassing of the paint)
*The product is not recommended for brick, non-painted cement surfaces, textured or heavy painted spackled wall board, MDF or Porous surfaces.
Installation results will vary on Teflon, acrylic gloss, stucco and eggshell painted surfaces.
For outdoor installation it is recommended to cover with a liquid laminate for longevity.

Does wallpaper require any special maintenance?
Your wallpaper should not require any maintenance, but if bubbles should appear, gently rub them in a swiping action until they disappear. This can happen occasionally if oil, dirt or dust is on your surface.
In the rare instance that bubbles keep re-appearing, you may want to move your Custom Wallpaper to another area and prime your wall surface. Most causes of bubbles are because the wall was painted within the last 30 days or cleaning chemicals where used prior.
If your wallpaper requires cleaning you can lightly wipe it down with a warm damp cloth or sponge but make sure you avoid any chemicals and abrasive materials.
How do I measure my wall correctly?
You measure the wall, or area you want to cover by the width and height in centimetres. Do not allow for excess nor include the skirting boards as we automatically include a 25mm bleed on the base of each panel, which caters for walls that are not square. Or simply use the wallpaper calculator to find out how many square metres you will need.
If I want to crop my photo can this part be printed only?
Absolutely, you can crop your photo as you upload it.
Is my image high resolution or good enough quality for wallpaper?
As large format printing requires high-resolution images (min 100DPI). If your image has been taken on an older basic camera the image will pixelate (i.e. loose quality) the larger you try to reproduce it. We require your file in jpg or tiff format and under 50 MB filesize. Note: If your image won’t upload it may be because the resolution is below our 1MB min size requirement, or alternatively the file format is not compatible. Perhaps you have an old scanned image, with poor resolution and you want to use it please email us at [email protected] with a brief description of what you require, including the wallpaper size and we will provide you with a quote.
Is there any mess left behind when I remove the wallpaper?
Please ensure you peel back the wallpaper slowly from the wall, ripping may cause brittle or freshly painted walls to flake. If your walls have been freshly painted please ensure you allow plenty of time for the paint to cure before applying your wallpaper. If the wallpaper is removed slowly no residue or sticky mess will be left behind.
What is Peel and Stick (self-adhesive) Wallpaper?
Peel and Stick (self-adhesive) Wallpaper is just like a sticker! As the name says you peel off the backing liner and it sticks to the wall.
Peel and Stick (self-adhesive) just sticks to the wall for ease of application. Easy to peel back off and reapply if required.
