Fall in LOVE with your walls. Creating your own wallpaper sounds exciting, but there are some very important things to keep in mind when designing them. In this article, we’ll go over the wallpaper template, design file tips + requirements, and more about the wallpaper.
The design area on the wallpaper is a single 24" x 24" square in which you will place your design/pattern.
*Please note - We will tile your pattern for you depending on your chosen panel size.
Design File Tips + Requirements
File Type + Size
Our Wallpaper design file requires a JPEG image at 300ppi. The JPEG Quality should be set to 100%.
Each panel is 24 inches wide. Simply order the number of panels you need based on the height of your wall.
Standard Wall Height
Wall heights can vary depending on where you live, but on average the standard ceiling height in the United States is 8' 0". Many new homes have a higher ceiling height anywhere between 9' 0" - 10' 0".
For example, if your room measured 8' 0" x 10' 0" you would need 4 panels of the 10-foot roll.
Creating a Pattern
Creating a pattern can be done in Adobe Programs such as Photoshop or Illustrator.
The most important thing to remember about repeat patterns is that whatever you do, the edges need to be replicated on the opposite side. For example, if you have a motif that overlaps the top edge, it needs to be in the same position on the bottom. This may sound tricky but its actually pretty easy when you are using the "Offset" feature in Photoshop or Illustrator.
Please keep in mind the template is 24" wide, therefore, you will need to figure out how large you would like your pattern to be. Depending on what size you would like your pattern will determine how many times you will repeat your pattern on our template. Our Template specs are 7200x7200 px; 300 PPI. See examples below:
Once you are happy with the size of your repeated pattern, you are ready to upload! Simply choose the panel height and the quantity you would like printed, we will take care of the rest!
Instructions on How to Apply
Step 1 - Using a damp cloth or sponge, clean the surface with warm water and mild soap. Allow the walls to dry for a minimum of 24 hours. While cleaning your wall take the last opportunity to finally check: is this a smooth surface? Orange peel, knockdown or a rough wall will make the peel & stick wallpaper challenges to adhere to the wall, if the surface is not smooth we recommend the conventional commercial wallpaper with paste the wall glue.
Step 2 - Lay panels flat and measure where your panels will be placed.
Step 3 - Pull panels 2-4 inches away from the liner starting at the top corner.
Step 4 - Line up panel edges with the ceiling.
Step 5 - Smooth out your panels from the center outward.
Step 6 - If needed, cut out area & firmly press the panel to the wall & edges.
