PEEL & STICK REMOVABLE WALLPAPER FAQ'S

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

Thanks to its patented adhesive technology, our Peel & Stick removable wallpaper is not only easy on the eyes, but also incredibly easy to install! It will not shrink, curl, rip or wrinkle meaning it is completely repositionable during installation – AKA you literally can’t mess this up! With that said, you’re just a few steps away from turning your wall (and, perhaps, life!) from drab to fab! At this point, you need to look deep into your psyche and decide what kind of person you are:

You may not be an expert, but you enjoy DIY projects and have a knack for following instructions. Or, at the very least, you know someone who fits the bill and have gotten them to agree to help you put up your new fancy wallpaper! Good on ‘ya!

If this describes you, follow the Peel & Stick wallpaper installation instructions below beginning with ‘Say Hello’.

‘Hands on Hanna’
Wallpaper Installation Instructions:

1. SAY HELLO

Unwrap your Hello Sticky package (like the sweet treat it is), oodle it’s contents, and gather the following items:

  • Wall paper (included in your order)
  • Squeegee (included in your order)
  • Sharp utility knife
  • Ruler/Tape Measure
  • Level
  • Pencil
  • A friend, family member, lover, accountant…  whoever will help you with the install. Not a necessity, but a nice-to-have.
2. PROPER PREP

Like any good relationship, you must make sure you have a solid base: your wall! So, prior to applying any wallpaper:

  • Use a warm, damp cloth or sponge to clean your wall and allow it to dry completely. 
  • Patch damaged areas on the wall, especially where sharp edges – you don’t want to pierce or tear your new wallpaper.
  • For best results, apply wallpaper to a surface that is a solid, light color. Our Peel and Stick wallpaper is not recommended for use on walls with high texture or those painted with scrubbable paints.
  • Allow recently painted or primed walls to cure for 4 weeks prior to installing wallpaper (applying wallpaper over uncured paint can lead to bubbling – oh no!)

Then, to ensure the happy ending of a perfect pattern, simply follow the “stick it” instructions below.

3. STICK IT
Roll #1
  • Pick a corner, any corner, and prepare to apply your wallpaper from left to right, top to bottom. One piece at a time. If you are doing an entire room, the pattern on the paper will likely not match on the final seam so make sure you pick the least conspicuous corner of your room to hide the evidence. 
  • With your level and pencil in hand, mark a vertical line on the wall, 24 ¾ inches out from the corner you are starting in. This will provide a straight line that can act as a guide for the edge of your wallpaper, allllll the way down. This is important because we want to make sure your pattern lines up and looks great — after all, most room corners are not perfectly straight   
  • Pick up Roll #1 and peel back a few inches of the back lining from the top of the roll. 
  • Crease the back lining so that you have a few inches of your sticky wallpaper available to begin your application. Do NOT fully peel your wallpaper yet — you’ll want to unpeel it slowly as you go. 
  • Align the top of the wallpaper with the ceiling making sure it’s straight and aligned on the vertical line you drew earlier. Pro tip: have your friend double check it from afar. When you have the a-ok, press the exposed sticky area against your wall.
  • Did you mess up? Breathe. Smile. Hello Sticky’s wallpaper is repositionable, so if you can adjust its placement – phewph! Slowly peel the wallpaper off the wall and reapply, as necessary. 
  • Once the top is in position, continue downwards by peeling the back lining down another 5-8 inches and smooth the sticky surface against your wall, from the centre, outwards. If necessary, use the felt-edge of the squeegee provided to gently move air bubbles to the edge of your wallpaper. 
  • Repeat steps 5 and 6 until you have installed your first panel. Smile and high-five your partner!
  • For now, leave any excess paper along the bottom. We will deal with that later. 
4. ROLL #2 & BEYOND
Roll #2 & Beyond
  • For best results, a ¾ inch overlap between panels is required. So, pick up Roll #2 and apply it directly to the right of your existing panel WITH  a ¾ inch overlap. Be careful to match the pattern repeat from the first strip and work the edges gently to avoid warping. 
  • To ensure your pattern lines up, do NOT trim the overlap. FYI: the pattern repeats itself every 24in, horizontally.
  • Repeat 🙂
5. FINAL TOUCHES
Final Touches
  • Now that you have hung all of your panels, it is now time to trim the excess wallpaper along the bottom. To do so, ensure the wallpaper is firmly pressed against the bottom of the wall and then simply run your utility knife along the crease with the baseboard.
Voila!

Now give yourself a high five for a job well done, stand back and appreciate the beauty of your new wall(s)!

MEASURING GUIDE:

peel & stick wallpaper

How Much Do I Order?

Order by Wall Size:

  1. Measure the overall height and width of the surface that you wish to cover, excluding crown molding and baseboards. 
  2. If your wall has slants or indents, measure the highest height and widest width. You will simply trim away the excess paper at the slants/indent during installation. 
  3. We cannot guarantee color matching for separately placed orders so please make sure you order everything you need at the same time. 

How to measure different wall types:

We know walls come in all shapes and sizes and we certainly do not discriminate. For tips on measuring different wall types, scroll through the following sketches:

USES/LOCATION

While our Peel & Stick wallpaper can be put up in bathrooms (or other areas where things are gettin’ steamy!) it does best if there is some ventilation. So, make sure to crack a window or turn on the fan so you can enjoy your new wallpaper well into the future!

DIMENSIONS

Our Peel & Stick wallpaper comes on rolls that are either 8ft (96in) length by 24 ¾ inch width OR 10ft (120in) length by 24 3/4in width. To make things nice and simple for you, we have created a custom wall coverage calculator which you will use during the checkout process.

COLOUR CONTROL

Colours may differ from screen to screen so please reference the Pantone number shown on each product page for reference. As well, while our Peel & Stick wallpaper will be printed to match the Pantone colour swatch included in its product images, a slight variance of up to two points in either direction is possible. As such, it is important to ensure all wallpaper is ordered at the same time as slight colour variations may occur in the same product purchased at different times.

MODIFYING / CANCELLING AN ORDER
Did you order the wrong size or pattern? Or perhaps put the wrong shipping address?

Don’t worry, we are happy to modify your order if it hasn’t already been printed and/or shipped. So, if you need to change anything about your order, please contact us ASAP with your order number and the details of your request and we will do our best to make it happen.

WALLPAPER ARRIVED DEFECTIVE

Oh no! We assure you that every order is thoroughly inspected for quality and perfection before it is shipped to our customers, however, we understand that things can happen and would be happy to chat more about what can be done. 

Please contact our team today to learn more.
REFUND POLICY

Because our products are made-to-order specifically to your wall’s measurements, no two are alike and we cannot resell your items.

 

For this reason, we are unable to accept returns under any circumstances. 

WARRANTY

As outlined in our installation instructions, our Peel & Stick wallpaper is not recommended for use on walls with high texture or those painted with scrubbable paints and/or walls that have been recently painted or primed (must cure for 4 weeks prior to install). As long as these instructions are followed, the chance of our wallpaper peeling away from the wall is very low. As such, we will require photo proof of the paper and wall to determine if a refund is a possibility. If we deem the installation instructions were not followed, Hello Sticky will not be responsible for refunding or replacing your wallpaper. 

Please contact our team to learn more. 
DAMAGE DURING INSTALL

Did you damage a piece of your wallpaper during install? Oh no! We are happy to replace the damaged piece at a 50 per cent discount off of the original price. That being said, we will require photo evidence of the mishap and you will be responsible for all shipping costs to send the replacement pieces.

Please contact our team today to learn more.

Was your wall damaged from the wallpaper? Although the chance of this is low, there is a small chance this may happen. Unfortunately, because we have no way of knowing the type of surface the wallpaper was used on (or the condition of that surface), Hello Sticky is not responsible for any damage incurred.
