Peel & Stick

Wallpaper tools

WALL NEEDS TO BE IN GOOD CONDITIONS, CLEAN, DRY, NO CRACKING PAINT, FREE OF MOLD, GREASE OR STAINS.

Hanging wallpaper is a two-person project. For best results start and finish installation in a single session, don’t leave the project unfinished for next day. Reserve 1 hour per panel to install.

THINKING OF

PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION?

Before contracting a professional wallpaper installer request for specific experience with self adhesive and peel and stick wallpaper. If possible consult them prior purchase about your project and the materials you want to acquire. Provide them with samples if possible. Check yourself for overall merchandise quality before installation: pattern repeat, overlap and material stability before handing it to your installer (take pictures). Ask your installer to make the same quality check before starting. Make sure they read carefully the instructions included with the order and supervise they are being followed. If possible supervise closely the entire project.

Step by Step Installation

Peel and Stick Mural

MOST IMPORTANT!!!

BEFORE YOU START

UNPACK AND CHECK YOUR ORDER UPON RECEIVING IT, EVEN IF YOU WON’T INSTALL IT RIGHT AWAY. CHECK COLOR CONSISTENCY AND PANEL MATCH OR PATTERN REPEAT THROUGHOUT YOUR ORDER ALWAYS BEFORE INSTALLING.

START FROM LEFT TO RIGHT OF THE WALL WHEN POSSIBLE.

MURALS: INSTALL IN NUMERICAL ROLL SEQUENCE STARTING WITH THE LOWEST NUMBER (1).

STEP 1

measure your panel

Measure the width of your wallpaper panel. On the wall beginning on the left side, measure out the width of the wallpaper panel and draw a mark.

STEP 2

DRAW THE GUIDE LINE

From the mark draw a vertical line ceiling to floor. This is the Guide Line for your first panel. Never align a wallpaper to a corner or ceiling since might be univen.

STEP 3

PEEL THE BACKING PAPER

Make sure your pattern is right side up. From the first panel peel and fold 6 inches of the backing paper leaving glue exposed to begin the installation.

Start always from left to right of the wall.

STEP 4

INSTALL THE FIRST PANEL

Pay special attention to the correct installation of your first panel. The most crucial step in hanging wallpaper is making sure the first strip is straight and level. This will impact the rest of the room so it is important to take your time and do it correctly.

Apply the panel to the top of the wall, allow a bit of excess to overlap the ceiling. Check if the wallpaper is straight, align the right side with the Guide Line. If not straight lift and repeat this step.

STEP 5

PEEL LITTLE BY LITTLE

Peel the backing paper down 5-10 inches at a time, checking the right side is matching with the Guide Line and smooth the paper to the wall, moving from the center outwards.

STEP 6

APPLY MORE PANELS

Select your next panel of wallpaper and apply it so that its left side overlaps the right edge of the previous panel matching the repeat. Find a friend to help with the alignment. Using the same procedure apply more panels.

TRIM

After installation trim the excess paper along the ceiling and baseboard. Always use a sharp knife to cut, try not to lift your knife when making long cuts.

CARE

Our Wallpapers are washable, to clean them you can use a wet sponge, kitchen towel or damp cloth; use only mild detergents. Don’t use abrasive cleaners & don’t scrub the paper.

REMOVAL

Lift a corner and gently pull firmly, evenly and slowly, working parallel to the surface. If encounter resistance heat the area with a regular blow dryer on the HOT setting to weaken the adhesive and easily remove from surface.

WALL DEFORMATIONS

Sometimes the wall has slight deformations such as bumps or depressions we do not see with plain eye but come out during a wallpaper installation. When the wall has a deformation the wallpaper does not match in some areas even when everything was checked out before hanging it. If this happens to you there is no solution for it more that try to cope with it or abort installation. Never pull and try to force the material in place. In our experience when this happens you need to place the wallpaper to match at it’s best without pulling and keep installing the rest of the panels, this issues usually happens in small areas of the wall and once the install is finished you will not notice it in the overall project. We do an extensive quality control for each order before sending it your way but always inspect your wallpaper match or repeat before starting the installation. Lay your panels on the floor and align them, this is an opportunity to check that everything is ok before starting the install. If you run into any issue while installing you will be able to determine more accurately the issue.
