1. Are there differences between a self-adhesive and a traditional material?

Think of a massive sticker with self-adhesive material. This type has two parts – the wallpaper and the backing paper. To install this, you have to pull the backing paper as you apply the wallpaper on the surface. Also, our self-adhesive wallpaper has a bright white base color  and it comes in 19 inch wide panels which in turn means that pattern scale is smaller when compared to our traditional wallpaper.

To apply a traditional wallpaper, make use of a wallpaper glue that is specifically made for non-woven wallpaper materials. The glue must be applied to the wall instead of on the back of the wallpaper. It needs to be applied in batches while working on each panel individually to prevent the glue from drying quickly. As our traditional wallpaper panels are 25 inches wide, the overall pattern scale appears larger than on our self-adhesive wallpaper. The base color for the traditional wallpaper is also slightly off white, which makes the overall design slightly warmer compared to our self-adhesive wallpaper. 

To see the difference and which material is best for your project, we highly recommend to order couple of samples first!

2. Can I get a sample?

Yes. You can choose from the dropdown menu the size and material. You can choose the 19” x 19” sample of the self-adhesive material and a 25” x 20” sample of the traditional stuff. Please keep in mind that all samples come with an information line at the bottom about half an inch high.

3. Can I buy custom colors?

Yes! We have an option for customizable designs. You can pick a color on the dropdown menu. Select the “custom color” option and add a note at the cart under “Special instructions to seller” with all the details for the custom work.

4. I want gold and metallic colors, can I order this from you?

At the moment, we do not have any metallic colors. However, we do have faux gold that might do the trick for you.

5. What type of surfaces do self-adhesive wallpaper work with?

The self-adhesive paper will work with smooth and flat surfaces (i.e., smooth finished painted walls, glass, mirrors, cabinet doors, etc.). If your wall has a little texture we suggest to sand down the wall first and then, using primer, prime the walls for a better look and a smooth result.

6. Will wallpaper work in bathrooms?

It will. However, it can only be decorative and away from water contact. Both wallpaper materials are easy to clean with a damp cloth or a soft sponge.

7. I want to reuse the wallpaper it, can I do that?

It is advisable not to, however, it is possible. Make sure that you apply the backing paper back to the adhesive part when you remove it to prevent it from sticking to itself and drying out.

8. Can you ship where I am?

We ship worldwide. If it’s on the map, we can send our wallpapers to you.

9. Do I need to sign for the ThinkNoirWallpaper parcel when it arrives?

Yes, you will have to sign upon receipt of the package.

10. Where are you located?

12. Anything else important I should know?

We suggest to order all the required wallpaper panels at one order, as there could be some material differences which can affect the color or pattern when printing the deisgn for the second time.
