How Your Bespoke Wallpaper Is Made
There are three printed wallpaper options; standard, brushed textured and premium. They are all high quality, beautiful wallpapers, but offer slightly different attributes.
Standard: Your designs are printed onto a chic, thick paper that has a beautiful textured matte finish. This durable paper has very good print qualities and offers a permanent print. Your bespoke wallpaper has a 10 year guarantee for color fastness, when the paper is kept in an optimal position, i.e. away from direct sunlight. It is strong and holds up well to scratches and abrasions. This makes it an ideal wallpaper to use in high traffic areas. As eco-friendly and sustainability are 2 of our main objectives, your paper is eco-friendly and we use no solvents and only water based inks. If you are planning on hanging your paper on a dark wall, we recommend using lining paper before applying your wallpaper.
Premium: Opt for our premium wallpaper, if you are looking for a 100% opaque option. This stunning paper is water activated and pre-coated with adhesive. All you need to do to hang it is spray the wall and position your paper - there is no need to add paste. With a matte finish and a gorgeous lightly textured handle, this paper offers a vibrant, permanent print in the highest quality, with super sharp print detail. The non-fade print is guaranteed for 10 years. It also offers the same benefits as the standard in regards to its finish; tough, durable and scratch resistant. The certified ECO-print is odor free and the water based inks offer a sustainable alternative to mass manufactured wallpapers.
Brushed Textured: This option is ideal for using to decorate a bathroom. It is bio-proof, meaning it has a special formulation that prevents bacteria or mold growth. The breathable formulation also resists mildew. You can wash the paper if it gets a little dirty. Simply use a damp cloth with mild soap and water. Applying the textured option could not be easier. The strong construction does not need wallpaper paste applied to it. Simply paste the walls and place your paper as desired. As long as the walls have been prepared correctly before hanging, the paper can be removed easily without damaging the walls.
Full hanging instructions are supplied with your wallpaper. You will be emailed a layout proof after you complete your design, with the image split into an optimal number of drops.
Your new wallpaper is made from tough paper, that is scratch and abrasion resistant. If you find a mark or some dirt on the paper, we recommend wiping it clean with a damp sponge.
Use your new textured embossed wallpaper to share your designs in your home, or with your fans. The textured surface is perfect for emphasizing the paintbrush texture in photos of paintings or looks beautiful with landscape photography. We recommend measuring the area for your design beforehand and adding 3.1" to the size. This allows you a 1.6" bleed on the height and width for trimming the paper or for any allowances, meaning you can get your wallpaper to fit perfectly. Then choose the length and width that you would like to print.
Please note: When entering the dimensions you would like your wallpaper to be, we recommend adding additional space to allow for shrinkage. Our heat printing process can cause up to 2.5% shrinkage on custom wallpapers and fabrics.
Next, choose one of the 'roll width' options. Wallpapers are printed over several pieces or 'drops' so you can choose either 49.2" or 24.6" as the width. This is the width of each piece of wallpaper.
Follow this up by choosing the 'wallpaper direction', which is the direction in which the 'drops' will be cut. This will need to be decided in such a way that you do not lose any important part of your design, such as faces or bits of text. The online preview will show the cutting lines to guide you. Lastly, upload your design to our online design system and experiment with the positioning of your image. If a low-quality warning appears, you may need to scale the image down, but can use a repeat tile effect or simply add other images. Our technicians will trim down any white spaces at the edge of the canvas around the bleed, so there are no borders visible.
