Pick a smooth, dry and clean surface –
When placing your self adhesive textile wallpaper on a standard painted wall, make sure the wall has been previously primed prior to painting (otherwise the paint may come off). If you place your wallpaper on a pebbly, textured surface that has used eggshell paint or a very porous surface (i.e. brick, cement walls, Stucco), you may receive poor results, although it has worked in some cases on newly painted surfaces. Make sure you allow 30 days for out gassing to prevent bubbling. We also suggest avoiding placement above fireplaces.
CLEAN IT BEFORE YOU STICK IT
Use a warm, damp cloth or sponge to clean the wall surface or window and allow it to completely dry. Make sure all previous cleaning solutions are completely gone. You can remove and replace the self adhesive textile wallpaper multiple times; however, once the adhesive collects too much dust, dirt or fibers it will become less effective and may not stick as well to your surface.
PEEL AND STICK IT
Depending on the size of your wallpaper, it may be helpful to have two people install it. Try not to let the adhesive come together, or let it fold up against itself. It’s okay if it does, you can separate it by carefully pulling it apart and you may want two people to do this on larger images. Start at the top of your Image and pull down approximately 4-6” of the backer and crease the back of the backer. Simply apply the 4-6” of exposed adhesive area to your chosen location. It can be repositioned many times. Once your square then continue to slowly pull the backer downward in 4-6” increments, smoothing the as you go. Depending on the size, it may be helpful if one person pulls down the backer, while the other smooth’s the image on the surface. You can use a plastic dry wall knife (like 6”-8”) to smooth out. If there are any bubbles or wrinkles, you can lightly press or smooth them out, or just peel back that area and re-apply. Please Note: Pressing too hard will not damage the wallpaper; however, it may cause your hands to gather ink (due to the natural oils on your hands), and could transfer from your hands onto another surface.
If a bubble re-appears over the next day or two, pressing and lightly rubbing can remove it. This can happen occasionally if oil, dirt, or dust is on your surface. You may also use a pin to pop the bubble, and then smooth it out with your fingers in a circular motion. In the very rare instance that it keeps re-appearing, you may want to move your wallpaper to another area as there is something wrong with this surface.
