We do our best to ensure that our photos are as true to color as possible. However, due to inconsistencies monitors, digital photography and production variations, we cannot guarantee that the color you see on your screen accurately portrays the true color of the product. The finished product may be slightly different than it appears in the preview. We recommend purchasing a Sample first.
We are going to show you a few important considerations when it comes to color consistency.
Digital vs reality
From the calibration of the screen to the type of surface printed the way we perceive colors varies. Our mindset on what to expect can also alter the perception of color!
In this picture you can see slight but important differences of how the same art looks in reality versus a screen.
Types of wallpaper
If you are not sure about the type of wallpaper for your project we advise to get samples of all. Each wallpaper material prints different, saturation levels and colors vary even when printed in the same equipment.
In this picture you can see how the same print looks in different materials: to the left Canvas Peel&Stick, to the right Removable Peel&Stick.
Less considered but also important is the type of light in the room: warm, fluorescent or natural. This will also affect the way the wallpaper looks, light colored papers are more susceptible to changes of tone depending on the environment. Trust in the way a sample works in your space.

Printer calibrations, inks and paper lot variations
We print each order upon request and while we try to maintain color through time we can't guarantee there will be a 100% color match.
Printing methods can have small calibration changes over time due to use of the printing equipment, regular maintenance, exchange of parts. Some colors more than others are susceptible to those changes.
We source our inks and paper from national respectable manufacturers but all inks and papers have disclaimers regarding small differences between lots and this is part of the industry accepted variation.
Sample VS Order
Because of printer calibrations, maintenance, inks and paper variations there could be small variations in color between a sample and your final order. The longest you wait between a sample and the final order, the more chances you will have to expect such changes.
Color information specially for interior designers:
We do not work with original Pantone inks, we cannot do a better color match than the Pantone Color Bridge. Our color customization is as per CMYK, RGB or HEX color code and do advice to get a sample for the customization before going for a bigger order.
Our production setting is 100% Digital printing CMYK and we do not work with custom inks or pigments. We can print full color + white inks over metallic papers.
Paint Colors and Wallpaper Color Match
Wall paint colors we might suggest to harmonize with our wallpapers are only approximates and never a true match.
Because of the nature of wallpaper's productive process and paint fabrication we cannot guarantee a paint color match by Code with any of our wallpapers. If you need a matching color paint we advice to get a sample of the wallpaper and match it with your paint supplier.
If you are looking for something very specific get a sample, because you need to be sure it will truly work for your space! This does not means that blues are going to look green but within the same color there are small variations that can or not be what you or your client are looking for.
Also we can customize samples, we receive sample customization requests all the time, you can request it with a note at checkout or with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number.
