Frequently Asked Questions

Hopefully your questions will be answered here, but please contact us and we will get back to you usually on the same day.

Thanks for ordering with The Wall Stickr Company and we hope you love your products for years and years.  Looking after them will usually require no work.  However in some situations you might need to clean your products. We choose to print our products using water-based inks. The upside is that they have the minimum VOC emissions. But the downside is that the ink will shift if they are cleaned with solvents.  Solvent cleaners are anything you'd use in your house. For example any suface cleaner. In the worse case that you drop your decal sticky side down, the sticking side may not have enough surface area to stick to the wall.  It also might look bumpy from the print side because of the dirt stuck to it. There is one method that might work to clean the sticky side of decals, and possibly small areas of our removable wallpaper.
1. Lay the decal print side onto their hand and run the sticky side under a running tap. Try to wash away the dirt particles from the sticky side.  It doesn't matter if the printed side gets wet, but try to avoid it getting wet + getting wiped as this friction might cause the ink to shift.
2. Flap off any water and place the decal print side down on a tea towel and let it air dry for a couple of hours.
We would love it if you could please let us know if this works or doesn't work for you.

Removable wallpaper sticks quite gently to your wall, even if we supply the higher tack product for bumpy or textured walls. So we do not suggest the use of 3M hooks because they might pull the wallpaper away from the wall.

We understand many renters will use our wallpaper, and sometimes landlord's don't want you putting holes in the wall. So the choice will be hooks or our removable wallpaper.

Alternatively we can print out your photos to stick onto your wallpaper - enter the dimensions into our custom wall decals product, or see our other photo ideas here.

The turnaround time for custom orders depends on a few factors. Custom designs are where you are creating your own design, we are not referring to our designs where you simply choose your own colours. So for a custom order, if you have the image or design for your custom text, wall sticker, wallpaper or wall mural, we just need a day or two to set it up for print and send you a proof.  Once you approve the proof, we need up to 6 business days to print it and ship it. However, if you need us to find an image or create the artwork for your custom order, we will need a few days to do this before we send you your first proof. The other factor is how many changes we need to make to your proof. We usually get it right on the first proof but if you need changes this will take extra days - usually an extra day.  The more changes we need to make, the more days we need. Shipping time also needs to be taken into consideration and added on to the total time.
Yes, our removable wallpaper can cover existing wallpaper, assuming the surface is clean and flat.
However, as our products are made for plasterboard walls or textured walls, we just can’t guarantee how they will respond to being removed as they may tear a papery service.
We suggest you get a Free Sample to try selecting a “flat wall in a dark colour”.
Parcels sent to destinations outside Australia may incur a Custom Duties fee.  However every country has it's own rules about whether our goods require an extra Duties Tax to be paid on arrival to your country.

If you have a window or a door within your wall, you may wonder if you need to order the full width of the wall, or could you use the cut-offs around these fixtures.  For this question, you will need to Contact Us about so we can work out the most cost-effective way for you to order, based on the design you choose.
You now need to work out how many 65cm wide panels you need to cover your wall. Measure the wall width and if you are wallpapering multiple walls, add all the widths up. Enter the total width into the wallpaper calculator found on the wallpaper product page and also on this page, to work out how many panels you need to order. The calculator will divide the width by our 65cm sheet sizes and then round this up to the nearest whole number to tell you how many of this product you need to purchase.
To work out how much wallpaper you need for your wall or room, first measure your wall height.
  • Standard wall heights in Australia are 2.4m , 2.7m, 3m and 365.8 cm.
  • Standard wall heights in the United States are 7 ft. 9" (236cm), 8 ft. (243.8 cm), 9 ft. (274.3 cm), 10 ft. (304.8 cm), 11 ft. (335.3 cm) and 12 ft (365.8 cm).
  • Standard wall heights in the UK are 2.3m (7 ft. 65"), 2.4m (8 ft.), 2.5m (8 ft. 2"), and 2.6m (8 ft. 6"),
Our wallpaper panels are available in 4 heights: 250cm, 280cm, 310cm, 350cm and 370cm. These heights will cover standard wall heights plus allow extra in case walls are not perfectly straight. If your wall height is angled, contact us for assistance.
You need to measure your wall height and width first, and then use the Wallpaper Calculator (on the right hand side of each wallpaper product) to work out how many panels to order and at what height.
Our wallpaper is supplied in 65cm widths by your wall height - rather than a roll. This has a number of benefits:
  1. The 65cm width allows for easy handling.
  2. Each panel is laid next to each other and the panels are numbered on the back to make it easy.
  3. There is no wasted wallpaper.
Please be aware that due to our printing process, further panels purchased may not earlier purchased wallpaper panels. We suggest you order what you need at this time.
We suggested a standard wall preparation for our removable wall stickers and wallpaper.  Apply an undercoat followed by 2 top coats with adequate drying time between coats.  Please allow a week for the second paint coat to outgas before application.

We do not recommend using our products as splash backs. Although our wallpaper is essentially a plastic product, we use water-based inks. When you use solvents on our products, like kitchen sprays and cleaners, the ink can destabilise and shift. If you want the design behind glass again we would not recommend our product as steam and water and bacteria can get between the wallpaper and the glass.  We suggest you contact a splash back company or a vinyl printer who can reverse print your design.
As far a paint types go, our products will adhere to all paint types including acrylic or enamel, and Wash & Wear paints that contain Teflon. Gloss or matte finished are fine too.

You may be moving house, moving rooms or renovating, moving and storing your Wall Sticker Company products from one place to somewhere else is even, you can even store them for some time. For wallpapers and decals this is easy, but for cut out text and intricate designs, this may not be possible. If you haven't kept your tube and backing paper as we recommend, you can purchase more backing paper from here. We ask for a small fee for this. Place the pieces on the backing paper and they can be rolled up inwards and stored in the tube with the ends secured in a dry place.  They can stay like this for years. For cut out text and intricate designs, each piece needs to be picked up and relocated.  This would require alot of time and may not look as good as when first applied, or may get damaged in this process.

They are all supplied on the same, high quality fabric ensuring a high-end look and Landlord approved friendliness! If you know the dimensions of what you want (this is easy for wall murals but can be tricky for text), you can get an instant quote by choosing what type of product you want on this page. Once you've place your order, we set up your design and send a first proof within 2 days - we need your sign-off on your design before we print it. This design process occurs via email, and we will make as many adjustments as you need until you are happy. Once you sign off, we need 6 business days to print and prepare it for postage, plus shipping time.  Sometimes we can do this quicker, and sometimes we have delays because printing something for the first time is not always easy.

Yes our products can be adhered to a fridge. However as the surface is for interiors, it will not withstand being scrubbed with solvent cleaners like spray and wipe.  It would be suited to decorating with our decal designs rather than “wrapped” in our wallpaper.

We can offer a plain coloured wallpaper, but we do have trouble printing darker colours with a nice, consistent finish - often there will be some banding which are stripes across the print that are darker than the rest of the print.

Lighter colour are not a problem however.

How long our removable wall stickers and wallpapers can sit "on the shelf” for depends on how the products are kept.  As long as the products stay in their tube, sealed with the end caps, and are kept dry, we would say they could last 8 years - this is the number of years we have been using the product, and know it remains removable for.

Yes we can!  We can turn any design, logo or idea into a removable wall sticker or wallpaper. If it is your logo or similar, we will need the file in a vector format - this is a file you would get from the graphic designer and is often in a EPS, AI or PDF file.

For an instant price and to place an order, please enter your dimensions for a custom decal here, custom text here, or a custom wallpaper here.  Enter any supporting information and upload any images, and we'll be in contact with your first proof.  We will not print until we have your sign off.

The product is easy to apply with a special layer over the top that makes placement perfect and quick.  They are easily removed and won’t damage the wall or leave any residue.

Application Instructions

To find the application instructions that go with your product, choose from the options below: simple decals, large decals, intricate designs (with the layer over the top), or wallpapers and murals.

General Application Requirements

All our products require are that your walls are:

  • Dry
  • Internal
  • Remove any dust; the more times our products can be reapplied
  • Painted surfaces have undercoat plus 2 top coats
  • Brick and rendered walls are as clean as possible
  • Glass and mirror applications - clean surface
  • Newly painted walls need 2 weeks to outgas before application
  • Remove bluetack, hooks or fixtures that prevent a smooth finish

Applying simple decals

Our wall stickers peel off your wall without leaving any residue or damaging the wall!

Plan where you will put the designs. See if the sheet includes a plan to putting it together.
Peel the decals from the backing paper.
Smooth the designs to the wall.
To reposition them, just lift an edge and peel them off the wall.
Refer to the Cleaning Instructions to care for and store your wall stickers.

Applying larger decals

Large decals need special instructions to avoid the pieces sticking to themselves. Once they are on the wall, it will be easy to move them into position.

  • Cut around any pieces to make it easier to manage.
  • Place the decal face down and peel back and fold15cm or so of the backing paper, exposing some sticky side of the sticker.
  • Now pick up the piece and stick it to the wall and support it by holding it to the wall.
  • Now from behind, pull the remaining backing away while holding it to the wall, until all the backing paper comes away and the sticker is fully applied.
  • To move the piece on the wall, 2 people peel the whole piece off and manoeuvre it into place.

Applying intricate designs and text (layer over the top)

Removing the top layer
  • Plan the position of the whole design first. You can cut between parts of the design to make it easier to place in sections.
  • Scratch the designs through the tape layer with your nails and then peel back, ensuring all parts are “picked up”.
  • You need to place the pieces in the correct position the first time. Once adhered, smooth it to the wall.
  • Peel off the tape layer leaving the designs on the wall.

Wallpapers & mural installation

Equipment  You’ll need a step ladder, a sharp Stanley knife (snap for a new blade) and possibly a second pair of hands. Make sure your walls are clean and dust free, and wipe the skirting boards too. Remove any picture hooks, tacks or blue tack, and any switch plates. Make sure your hands are clean.

Getting started  Notice on the back corner of the panels the numbering - you’ll be putting up panel #1 on the left then applying them to the right. (For left-handers just start at the highest number and work from right to left.) Lay the first panel design-down on a clean, flat surface. Peel the top edge back 30cm or so, and the fold the backing paper back so it stays out of the way.

Remove the backing  Now you’re going to temporarily stick the panel to the wall so you can remove the backing paper safely. Stick it to the wall under the cornice (don’t worry about placement yet) and stick it to the wall. Start pulling the backing paper down from behind (evenly across to avoid buckling), and stick the wallpaper to the wall as you go - just enough to keep it stuck. Prevent the sticky sides of the wallpaper from sticking together.

Stick  Once the backing paper is removed from the top of the panel you can place it properly. Placing the first panel is the trickiest so take your time. From the step ladder, pull the entire sheet back off the wall to line it up under the cornice. Then let the panel fall naturally. If the side of the wall is not covered all the way to the corner, allow an extra centimetre across the corner - this can be trimmed off at the end. Pull it off again if you’re not happy, and reapply. Once you are happy with how it is placed, smooth it from the top in a down-and-out motion to “sweep” out any air pockets.

Dealing with wrinkles and bubbles  Large bubbles should just smooth out but if they get trapped or you get a crease, just peel back the panel to release them rather than rubbing the print.

Matching the design  For the next panel you need to repeat the above to get it safely on the wall and off the backing paper. For the best result, apply the panel temporarily 10cm below the first panel. Now step down and, at eye level, match up the design and butt the panels into each other (no overlapping is required). Line up the design up and down the join and stick it to the wall but only enough to hold the panel flat to the wall - you can smooth it completely to the wall once the entire join is matched.

Trimming  Only once all the panels are adhered and aligned can you trim off the excess wallpaper. Run your sharp Stanley knife blade along the sides and bottom. Carefully trim around power points then replace the plates.

Moving the panels  If you want to move the wallpaper to a different wall, you need to apply it to the backing paper while vertical to avoid debris getting on the sticky side. Stick a panel of the backing paper on the wall next to the panel you want to remove - stick at the top and bottom with masking tape or similar. Peel the panel of wallpaper off the wall and move it across and stick it onto the backing paper, getting it lined up as best as possible. It will help to have a second pair of hands to guide the bottom of the panel. Once stuck, roll up the panel and protect any exposed edges - wrap in bubble wrap.

Please keep the white backing paper if you intend to move your wallpaper, or move home!

Chalkboard wall sticker application

Chalkboard wall sticker with tick written on it in chalk
  • Plan the position of the design first as it cannot be moved. Peel the design off the backing paper.
  • Place the design on the wall and smooth into place.
  • Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
  • Can be used with standard chalkboard and liquid chalk.
  • To remove your chalkboard wall sticker, heat the design with a hair dryer in sections to remove it.

Note: Chalkboard products may cause paint to come off walls even if instructions are followed. We suggest applying to hard surfaces if you are concerned about the state of your wall.

Our removable wall sticker material is exactly the same as our removable wallpaper.  They are a polyester blend fabric with an adhesive on the back.  As you expect with fabric, the finish is matte and soft, and sometimes there are frays at the edges.  The adhesive is clear, does not smell and won't harden over time, so it won't damage the wall or leave any residue on removal.

We have 3 different types of the product we supply you with:

1. For flat walls and slightly see through - perfect for flat plasterboard walls, or drywall (USA), painted in a light colour.

2. Complete block out for flat walls where the wall colour is dark or needs to be hidden. The print appears brighter because the white point is stronger. Ideal for glass or mirrored surfaces.

3. For textured walls (concrete, brick or render) - the wall colour is seen through ever so slightly so it is deal for white or light coloured walls.

If you have textured walls that are a dark colour, please contact us.

At checkout you will be asked about your wall type. We will supply the correct product to suit your wall: You can order an A4 sample of any of our wallpapers. Just select this option on the wallpaper design you like. The cost of these is redeemable on purchase of your wallpaper.

Our product will adhere to glass and mirrors.

The result will be the same but the difference will be that it will stick harder, because the surface is flatter.  Decals will be easy to apply.  Wallpaper will require more time and to get joins to match up, because it won't be possible to move pieces into position.

See the image below of some sliding glass doors that have been covered with our White Brick removable wallpaper.

If you'd like to try a sample and see how it will stick, you can order an A4 wallpaper sample from your desired removable wallpaper design. The cost is redeemable upon purchase of the wallpaper.

When purchasing our products for glass or mirrors,  select your wall type and flat and dark in colour - that will be perfect for mirror or glass.
