General Wallpaper Information
- Licence Rights:
- How do I know the quality is good?
Digital Living will always provide high quality wallpaper. As we produce this in Ireland we use high quality machinery to achieve the best results in our custom printed wallpaper.
It is heavy duty to make the install easier unlike low quality and low priced murals that tear and show the dried paste underneath.
- How wide are the wallpaper strips?
Our wallpaper strips come in 700mm (approx) wide drops plus approx 10mm overlap on each side.
- How does my wallpaper arrive to me?
Your wallpaper will arrive on a roll that is pre-cut into vertical drops labelled in numbers starting from left to right ready to hang.
- Which paper is most suitable for me?
You can choose from a variety of wallpapers and sizes to suit all. Click on the collections link above to view our full gallery.
- How long will my wallpaper last?
If you hang it correctly it will last 10 years + or until you take it down.
This is strong wallpaper and it will last as long as you want it to.
- What is the print quality like on the wallpaper mural?
The print quality is excellent. Using state of the art wallpaper machines and Eco friendly inks allows us to provide the best print possible. Our team has spent years sourcing the highest quality images that will suit for a wall feature of these sizes. But please do remember this is a wall feature and not a wallpaper for your laptop or computer. It is a feature wall to show off to your friends or family.
Customising Your Mural
- How long will my wallpaper take to arrive?
Our standard service is 3-5 working days, although generally day 5 until arriving. We also offer express delivery to guarantee a faster delivery if you need it urgently.
- Are the colour on screen accurate?
The colours we show on screen can vary compared to what we produce into wallpaper. There can be some variation between computer monitors which is due to brightness and colour intensity, however this is usually very minimal but can be different depending on the settings on your computer/laptop screen, ipad or or any viewing device. Also please bare in mind that a screen with a light behind an image is different to a printed image. Any screen will make anything look brighter and more vibrant. We do produce high quality wallpaper and want our images as vibrant as possible without rectifying the quality of the mural.
- Colour variances between prints?
As our wallpaper printers go through regular cleaning maintenance. Please note that there can be colour variances between what you see on screen and the actual order you receive. We do keep our wallpaper prints consistent and aim to avoid colour variations. We also check each mural before posting it out to you to achieve the best quality and service overall.
Installation & Fitting
- Should I book a decorator prior to receiving my mural?
We recommend that all customers wait until they receive their mural prior to booking a decorator. Once your mural arrives, please check your mural prior to installation to ensure that everything has arrived as ordered.
- What adhesive should be used to hang the wallpaper murals?
Any standard wallpaper powder mix is good and only costs approx €5. Mix it 100% correctly so that the paste is thick and not thin. If it is thin the wallpaper will not hang and stick very well. Also we do recommend the ready mix paste, this is more expensive at approx €12.99 or more. Either will give you the same finish but the ready mix is good to go.
- How do I install the wallpaper?
Hanging a wallpaper mural is much the same as hanging normal wallpaper but with an overlap on each side using normal wallpaper paste, and matching each panel of wallpaper to the next until the mural is completed. We provide a full detailed step by step guide with every purchase, which explains the simple hanging process from start to finish, making it simple even for a novice. If you are not confident we do recommend a professional local fitter. Our team is always on stand by to reply to emails. Just contact our sales team and ask for support ([email protected]). We do also have our own fitters if required.
Measuring Your Wall
- Should I give exact wall dimensions?
As you see on our website we offer 4 different sizes for the murals. These offer a wide variety for all size walls from small to large. If you have a particular size in mind that is smaller or larger than what we offer please contact our team and we can arrange a more custom print for you if required. Costs may be reflected on this depending on sizes. We are here to help.
- What if my wall is curved or has a slope in it?
If your wall is an unusual shape that is not an issue. You need to measure the widest and tallest part of your wall to get the height and width correct. When you start to hang the wallpaper simply trim away the excess paper.
- Can I supply my own artwork?
Yes you can. It must be a high quality image of approx 10-20mb at min. Otherwise print quality may be low. We are happy to view any image and let you know if this will work by arranging a print test at the size you provide. The print test and full set up for production is €75.
If you require this service please email our sales team the image/picture and also the size you require along with your details, name and phone number and business if any. One of our team members will be in touch soon after.
