Peel & Stick Canvas Texture – Wallpapers & Murals – Installation

Product Description

These premium heavy duty Wallcoverings are PVC free, environmentally & fire rated compliant and are child safe. They are repositionable, have a matte sheen, are scrubbable, lightfast and when it comes time to re-decorate – strippable. The roll of printed panels is 24” wide. If your total wall width is not exactly divisible by 24”, the last panel will have a narrower printed area to complete the full width of your dimensions.

Premium Peel and Stick Canvas Wallcoverings are made with a proprietary adhesive that is specifically engineered for quick and easy application and removal. Just remove the paper backing and apply to the wall.

This tough heavyweight material has great hiding capabilities over problem walls. It can even be directly applied over grooved paneling up to 1/8 inch and cracked walls once they have been sanded and primed. If the paneling grooves are in excess of 1/8” or the paneling has an excessive number of vertical grooves then Wall Liner should first be installed. Weight 312 GSM.

Update your walls with a completely new look in minutes. Paste or water are never needed! These Wallcoverings are completely removable and reusable.

Ideal for homes, including bathrooms and kitchens and high traffic commercial installations

Installation Instruction

1
Unwrap and roll out the Wallcovering.

  • A separate sheet will provide a colored picture of your Wallcovering plus hanging instructions and the tools you will need.
  • Make sure that you have all the panels for your Wallcovering and ensure that they will cover the entire area per the measurements you supplied when ordering.
  • Place the panels in order, ready to install.
  • Lay panels flat for a few hours allowing them to uncurl.

2
Wall should be smooth and clean.

  • Sand any rough areas if necessary.
  • Prime if it has not been previously painted, this is particularly important if you are applying over wood paneling.
  • Turn off any electrical power outlets and remove plates.

3
Begin your installation

  • Begin your installation from the left wall corner and if it is not plumb (most are not!), draw a plumb line 23” out from the corner. (1” less than the width of your Wallcovering panel.)
  • Using a spirit level or plumb line mark a straight line down the wall to act as a right side guide when applying the first panel.
  • As you hang the first panel line up the right edge to this line.
  • The left edge can be pushed tight into the corner with a papering tool/scraper and trimmed with a knife.
  • It is important that this first panel is perfectly plumb! You can repeat the plumb lines across the wall at 24” spaces for additional guidance if necessary.

About adhesive.

  • This Peel & Stick wallcovering has a paper backing that when removed exposes the adhesive.
  • Try not to let the adhesive come together, or let the material fold up against itself.
  • It’s okay if it does, you can separate it by carefully pulling it apart.

5
Two people to install

  • Depending on the size of the project and wall area, it may be helpful to have two people install it.

Start

  • Start at the top of your first wallcovering panel and pull down approximately 4 to 6 inches of the backing and crease it.
  • Then apply the 4 to 6 inches of exposed adhesive area to your plumb line which is 23” from the wall corner. It can be repositioned easily.
  • Once the right edge is flush with the plumb line, continue to slowly pull the backing downward in 4 to 6 inch increments, smoothing the material as you go.
  • Depending on the size, it may be helpful if one person pulls down the backing, while the other smooth’s the image on the surface.

7
Install the second and remaining panels

  • As you install the second and remaining panels, follow the procedure described in section 6, but joining the left hand seam and matching the design. Do not overlap the seams.
  • Smooth the wallcovering surface from the center outwards as you proceed.

8
Bubbles or wrinkles.

  • If there are any bubbles or wrinkles, you can lightly press or smooth them out, or just peel back that area and re-apply.

9
Bubble re-appears?

  • If a bubble re-appears over the next day or two, pressing lightly and rubbing can remove it.
  • This can happen occasionally if oil, dirt, or dust is on your surface.
  • Use a sewing pin to pop the bubble, and then smooth it out with your fingers in a circular motion.

Installing Wallcoverings to more than one wall in a room.

Murals most generally are applied to just one feature wall in a room. Wallpapers on the other hand are often applied to more walls, sometimes all four. In such cases you will need to compensate for the possibility that the other corners may not be plumb. Here is the best way to hang your wallcovering in these inside corners:

measure

1
Measure.

  • Measure distance from the edge of the last panel on your first wall to the corner at the top, middle and bottom.
  • Then add 1/2″ to the largest measurement and cut the next panel of wallcovering lengthwise to that size. (The portion you cut off will be used next.)

2
Hang

  • Hang panel and smooth it into the corner allowing the extra 1/2″ to overlap onto the adjoining wall.
  • Trim off excess at ceiling and baseboard.

3
Measure the width

  • Measure the width of your “cut-off” panel and snap a plumb line that same distance from the corner on the un-papered wall.

4
Hang.

  • Hang panel to the line overlapping the 1/2″.
  • Continue around all walls using this procedure.

Removal When You Re-Decorate

1
Remove

  • This wallcovering is manufactured using a tough canvas texture and is very easy to remove.
  • Beginning at the top pull each wallcovering panel slowly back on itself at an angle as if you were sliding it down the wall, until it is completely removed.

2
Adhesive

  • The adhesive will remain intact on the back of the wallcovering allowing it to be re-used elsewhere.
  • Save the original backing paper and use this on the removed paper for storage.

3
Priming the wall.

  • One of the advantages in priming the wall before you install wallcovering is that it makes removal much easier.
