How Are Your Wallpaper Borders Printed And Made?
Your wallpaper borders are printed, cut and finished by hand by our team of skilled technicians. Extreme care and attention to detail is given to every order, to ensure an immaculate finish. When it comes to making borders for your walls, there are four options to choose from. The classic standard and our luxurious premium. All papers look and feel beautiful, with matte finishes and lightly textured faces. The strength and durability is the same in all options, and they hold up brilliantly to scratches, abrasions and scuffs. Being environmentally friendly is a key mission of ours. As such, the papers are eco-friendly with no solvents or odors. We only use water-based inks and the premium option has a certified ECO-print.
There are a few subtle differences in the borders for wallpaper:
Standard: Your designs are printed onto a chic, thick paper that has a beautiful matte finish. This non-tear paper has very good print qualities and offers a permanent print. Your bespoke wallpaper has a 10 year guarantee for color fastness, when the paper is kept in an optimal position, i.e. away from direct sunlight. It is strong and durable, and holds up well to scratches and abrasions. This makes it an ideal wallpaper to use in high traffic areas. As eco-friendly and sustainability are 2 of our main objectives, your paper is eco-friendly and we use no solvents and only water based inks. If you are planning on hanging your paper on a dark wall, we recommend using lining paper before applying your wallpaper.
Premium: Opt for our premium wallpaper, if you are looking for a 100% opaque option. This stunning paper is water activated and pre-coated with adhesive. All you need to do to hang it is spray the wall and position your paper - there is no need to add paste. With a matte finish and a gorgeous lightly textured handle, this paper offers a vibrant, permanent print in the highest quality, with super sharp print detail. The non-fade print is guaranteed for 10 years. It also offers the same benefits as the standard in regards to its finish; tough, durable and scratch resistant. The certified ECO-print is odor free and the water based inks offer a sustainable alternative to mass manufactured wallpapers.
Brushed Textured: This option is ideal for using to decorate a bathroom. It is bio-proof, meaning it has a special formulation that prevents bacteria or mold growth. The breathable formulation also resists mildew. You can wash the paper if it gets a little dirty. Simply use a damp cloth with mild soap and water. Applying the textured option could not be easier. The strong construction does not need wallpaper paste applied to it. Simply paste the walls and place your paper as desired. As long as the walls have been prepared correctly before hanging, the paper can be removed easily without damaging the walls.
Self-Adhesive: If you're looking for no-fuss wallpaper, self-adhesive is it. Easily install by peeling the paper backing and sticking to the wall. It can be mounted and repositioned again and again. Fully opaque with a matte texture. Made with environmentally friendly inks and is water resistant.

If you need to clean your wallpaper borders produced then we recommend using a mild, soapy solution and a damp sponge. Use as little moisture as possible, and do not scrub at the dirt. Gently wipe instead. Although the colors will not run, if you scrub too hard, a natural nap in the paper might become visible.
It is important to consider the dimensions of the borders. Each strip measures 57.87" x 8.66", so it is vital to measure the total length and width of space that you are looking to cover. Use a tape measure so you ensure you order the right amount of paper. The quality of your artwork also plays an important factor. Once you upload your design, if you see a "low quality" warning, it is because your image is too small and it won't look its best when printed. If this is the case, try scaling your image down, or applying the tile effect. There are so many amazing design options for uploading onto your borders. Repeat patterns look striking, as do creative collages and typography. Have fun creating the perfect design for your project. When it comes to hanging your borders, they are not limited to just walls. If you have stair risers, then why not jazz them up a bit and put some spring in your step by creating borders for your stairs? See our images for design inspiration!
