Most asked questions

1. General

It is a wallpaper type that is self-adhesive and is ready for application to walls without paste or glue. It works like a sticker – you need to peel off the backing of the wallpaper and stick the wallpaper to the wall. Keep in mind that this type of wallpaper is different from pre-pasted wallpaper, which is not self-adhesive wallpaper since you actually need to take an extra step and activate the wallpaper glue. At Fancy Walls you can order self-adhesive wallpaper by choosing your preferred design and selecting wallpaper type “Peel and Stick Wallpaper”.

You can use Fancy Walls removable wallpaper both for long-term and temporary applications. The lifetime of peel-and-stick wallpaper strongly depends on environmental factors. Things such as humidity on the walls, airflow, and ventilation can strongly impact how long the wallpaper will last. If the conditions in the room are appropriate – it’s not too humid, and the surface that you want to wallpaper can avoid constant exposure to water, then you can count on enjoying your new design for several years and even longer. 

Our self-adhesive wallpaper is removable. Our traditional non-pasted wallpaper is also removable if you are using recommended wallpaper paste.

You can buy it on Fancy Walls by choosing any design and selecting the wallpaper type “Peel & Stick wallpaper”. Measure the following dimensions of each wall: width and height and enter them in our wallpaper calculator to determine wallpaper panel sizes and required quantity.

Here at Fancy Wall you can order only durable high-quality PVC-free temporary wallpaper. Both peelable and unpasted wallpaper for walls is 100% PVC-Free.

You don’t need to paste the peel and stick material or the wall before applying the wallpaper to the wall. It works like a big sticker – there is a back layer, which can be peeled off, and the sticky part, which you need to put on the wall. Moreover, it can be cleaned with a damp cloth and has higher humidity resistance. So, you can use it in a bathroom while keeping away from direct contact with water or as a backsplash in the kitchen.

We can offer a very fast turnaround time for both small and large orders. All our temporary wallpaper are shipped via FedEx to ensure it reaches you on time anywhere in the world. We are flexible and open to custom order requirements No matter if it is a custom length.

We use water-based odorless ink for our self-adhesive wallpaper.

2. Types

Here at Fancy Walls we sell woven peel and stick wallcovering made of polyester textile, which is OEKO-TEX certified, PVC-free, and phthalate-free. Another important advantage of our wall coverings is the reduced risk of air bubbles while applying the wallpaper on walls compared to vinyl alternatives.

Here at Fancy Walls we sell non-woven paper coated non-pasted wallpaper, which is FSC-mix certfied, PVC-free.

3. Installation

It is easy, but for some designs, it might require extra patience and scrutiny to match the pattern in a horizontal line when applying every next wall covering strip. For example, if the design is with white background and vertical lines it is very easy to match the pattern. However, if the pattern is connected across several sheets you need to align it.

We recommend cleaning the wall with a damp cloth and letting it fully dry before applying the stick and peel wallpaper to ensure that the wallpaper will adhere properly to your wall.

For better results, we recommend cleaning the wall with an isopropyl alcohol cleaning solvent. You can spray it on the cloth and wipe the wall with the damp cloth. Follow the cleaning instructions provided by the solvent manufacturer. After any wall cleaning with a damp cloth, it must dry fully.

  • Drywall
    You need to use a primer if you have bare drywall. For other types of walls, it is not mandatory.
  • Textured wallsIt is not recommended to apply it to textured walls because the back of the wallpaper will not adhere as well as it would to a smooth surface. Moreover, the texture most likely will be visible through the wallpaper after its application as the material is not fully opaque. Therefore, we recommend applying it only onto smooth walls.

    However, some of our customers have used it on orange-peel or knock-down textured walls. We don’t recommend doing it and can’t guarantee the performance on such walls.

  • Freshly painted walls
    If you want to preserve the wall painting in its original condition, we recommend waiting at least 4 weeks for the paint to fully cure before applying peel and stick wallpaper. Even though the wall might look dry, the paint has not completely cured.
    In case you don’t want to preserve the wall painting in its original condition, feel free to apply it to the wall after several days.
  1. Unroll the peel & stick wallpaper if you haven’t already done so.
    It is not mandatory, but we recommend leaving the wallpaper unrolled for an hour or two to ease the installation process since the wallpaper has been rolled up in the package during the delivery time and most likely has curled. You can place some heavy, but clean, items such as books on it if it won’t stay on the floor.
  2. Find a level spot on your wall.
    Find a level spot to make sure that the wall is straight. You might end up applying wallpaper at a slight angle if the wall is not straight.
  3. Peel the backing off.
    Peel the paper from self adhesive wallpaper backing about 10 inches (20 centimeters) from the top. It will be easier to apply the top of the wallpaper sheet which is the most important part of the application process.
  4. Apply the temporary wallpaper.
    Apply the peel and stick wallpaper on the top of the wall where you have found a level spot. You can start slowly smoothing the wallpaper from the top with a squeegee or dry sponge until you reach the point where the wallpaper backing has to be removed again by another 10 inches. We recommend removing the backing step by step to avoid applying a large piece of wallpaper at once without smoothing it out to prevent air bubbles. This step-by-step application of 10 inches (20 centimeters) at a time allows you to remove the last part of applied wallpaper from the wall in case too many bubbles have formed since our peel and stick wallpaper can be repositioned up to 24 hours after application.
  5. Smooth out the wallpaper for walls.
    Smooth out the wallpaper for walls, and remove any air bubbles with a squeegee, plastic ruler, or dry sponge.
  6. Apply the second panel.
    Our peel and stick textile wallpaper doesn’t require overlap since it doesn’t shrink over time. Therefore, place the second panel on the right edge of the first panel, not on it. Repeat steps 1-5 again.
  7. Cut off the excess material.
    When all self-adhesive wallpaper panels are applied, cut off excess material at the top and bottom of each panel. Cut any excess material around electrical sockets and light switches.
  8. Finish by giving a final smoothing.
    We recommend giving another round of smoothing after 2 days and another time after 2 weeks to ensure the wallcovering sticks properly to the wall.
Peel and stick wallpaper can be used in the bathroom. However, we don’t recommend installing non-pasted wallpaper in a bathroom since it has different material characteristics and is not suitable for bathrooms.

If you have noticed the formation of air bubbles during the application of self stick wallpaper – pull up the wallpaper panel until the air bubbles are released.

If you have noticed a few air bubbles after applying the whole panel –  use a squeegee (with round angles) or another smoothing tool to smooth out the wallpaper & remove any air bubbles that may form. We recommend evenly eliminating bubbles by applying pressure and moving it hor to the right or left side of the vertical panel.

It is much easier to hang temporary wallpaper vertically. However, if you have decided to hang it horizontally here are a few tips:

  • We recommend using a laser level to ensure that wallpaper panels are horizontally leveled
  • We recommend that you ask another person to hold the end of the temporary wallpaper panel rolled during the installation to avoid damaging the wallpaper
  • Keep in mind that all Fancy Walls designs are designed for vertical application and you need to request custom wallpaper to have it prepared and cut for horizontal application.
Start at the corner of the wallpaper sheet and work parallel to the surface. You can peel the wallpaper up or down, whichever you find more convenient.Please keep in mind the following:
  • Do not overstretch the material during the removal.
  • Remove the wallpaper slowly, working parallel to the surface.
  • In case of resistance, you can heat the area with a regular blow dryer to weaken the adhesive and easily remove wallpaper.
