Why trying a sample is an awesome idea

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 always.

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.

Lighting conditions

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.

d the final order, the more chances you will have to expect such changes.

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 info@kokoartshop.com with your order number.

Adhesion to the wall and how a sample is a safety choice 

How to test a sample......

You might get a removable peel and stick sample and test it on your textured wall. It will probably stick and won't fall off - "But I tested and the sample worked"-. Did you notice the sample was super easy to remove? If a sample does not offer any type of resistance when removing then it's not well attached. Take your sample cut it in half, paste one half to a textured wall and the other half to a smooth wall. You will notice a huge difference in adhesion level between both surfaces. Also consider each full panel of wallpaper weight up to 2 pounds, this weight added to a poor adhesion will cause a coming off the wall.
