Do I need to pay Customs Duty Fee?Jen MenzAs per Business Standard, Customs duty refers to the tax imposed on goods when they are transported across international borders. In simple terms, it is the tax that is levied on import and export of goods. The government uses this duty to raise its revenues, safeguard domestic industries, and regulate movement of goods. The rate of Customs duty varies depending on where the goods were made and what they were made of. Customs Duty Fee may apply to parcels sent to destinations outside Australia. 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. You can estimate duties charges here.

Do your products damage the wall?Jen MenzOur removable wallpaper and wall stickers won't damage your walls, assuming they are in good condition to start with. The adhesive is more like a gum that doesn't harden over time, so 2 or 10 years later, it will simply peel off. There will be no adhesive to wipe off the wall either. Unlike vinyl products which shrink and curl, our fabric products stick gently to the wall and don't require string adhesive to hold them on the wall.

How can I clean your products?Jen MenzThanks for ordering with The Wall Sticker 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. Our products can be cleaned if they get grubby except for those printed for dark coloured walls. You should avoid getting them into contact with water or any solvent. But for our products for bumpy walls and for flat, light coloured walls, you can clean your products with water and a solvent like Spray N Wipe, but we don't recommend micro fiber cloths.
How do you apply your products?Jen Menz
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 RequirementsAll our products require are that your walls are:
- 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 4 weeks to outgas before application
- Remove bluetack, hooks or fixtures that prevent a smooth finish
Applying simple decalsPlan 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
- 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 installationEquipment 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!
How do you order the removable wallpaper?Jen MenzWorking out how much removable wallpaper you need to order for your wall is easy with our Wallpaper Calculator. You just need to know your wall width and the wall height! On each of our wallpaper designs you will see the Wallpaper Calculator right at the bottom, or click here to see it. All you need to do is enter the wall width or, if multiple walls, all the widths added together. It will show how many units you need to order.
Now measure your wall height. Go to the wallpaper design you want to order and select the wall height that matches yours. Lastly, in the quantity box, enter the number of units from the calculator. So now you should have 5 panels at 250cm high for example.
Choose your wall type and then choose your colours. Either colour the live panel with your chosen colours, or enter them into the field provided.There is no waste with our wallpaper! Unlike traditional wallpapers sold by the 10m roll, you order what you need. For complex walls such as those with large windows and cathedral ceilings, please Contact Us for assistance.
How is the wallpaper supplied?Jen MenzOur wallpaper is supplied in 65cm widths by your wall height - rather than a roll. This has a number of benefits:
- The 65cm width allows for easy handling.
- Each panel is laid next to each other and the panels are numbered on the back to make it easy.
- There is no wasted wallpaper.
How much is postage?Jen MenzPostage costs vary depending on the size and weight of your order, the delivery location and the type of shipping selected. Postage is calculated at checkout prior to making payment. This will calculate the shipping costs of each shipping option for your order and allow you to choose your preferred method.
