How Your Embossed Wallpaper is Made
Our talented makers print and cut every piece of wallpaper to hand onsite in our London factory, giving your designs the care and attention they deserve. Your raised wallpaper is made by printing your designs onto our special bio-proof formulated paper, using environmentally friendly and solvent-free printing inks. A superior printing method means your textured wallpapers will have a lasting, richly coloured print and be fade-resistant – even over time. The bio-proof formula makes it perfect for bathrooms or rooms where it may be exposed to moisture, as it resists bacteria, mould and mildew. Your new embossed wallpaper couldn’t be easier to apply; simply paste the walls directly, and place each sheet as desired. Removing the paper is just as simple, and won’t leave walls damaged.
We also offer three other custom wallpaper options; standard, self-adhesive and premium.
The standard wallpaper has a thick quality with a lightly textured matte finish and displays your designs using eco-friendly inks and paper. This option is also strong and durable and comes with a 10-year guarantee. If applying this wallpaper over a dark wall, we recommend that you give the wall a coat of white paint prior to hanging the paper, so that your designs pop.
How to apply:
Paste the back of your paper with wallpaper paste, before applying to clean walls.
If you want a 100% opaque option, the premium wallpaper is perfect. This beautifully printed, matte finish paper is water activated and incredibly easy to apply and remove, without the need for wallpaper paste. This option is also created using eco-friendly printing inks and practices, like all of our wallpapers. Adorn your walls in vibrant colours and prints with sharp detail and incredibly high quality.
How to apply:
Simply spray your wall with water and position the paper as necessary, with no need for paste.
Matte with a textured finish, this option can be mounted to any surface and is also created using eco-friendly printing inks and methods. Designed with a unique coating which is quick drying and features water resistance. Retains adhesion and leaves no residue.
How to apply:
Peel and stick application, can be repositioned countless times, no need for paste or water.
Your new raised wallpaper is durable and resistant to scratches, however if you’d like to clean the paper you can wipe it clean with a damp, soapy sponge.
Use your new textured embossed wallpaper to share your designs in your home, or with your fans. The textured surface is perfect for emphasising paint brush texture in photos of paintings or looks beautiful with landscape photography. We recommend measuring the area for your design beforehand and adding 8 cm onto the size. This allows you a 4 cm bleed on the height and width for trimming the paper or for any allowances, meaning you can get your wallpaper to fit perfectly. Then choose the length and width that you would like to print. Next, choose one of the 'drop width' options. Wallpapers are printed over several pieces or 'drops' so you can choose either 125 cm or 62.5 cm as the width. Follow this up by choosing the 'wallpaper direction', which is the direction in which the 'drops' will be cut. This will need to be decided in such a way that you do not lose any important part of your design, such as faces or bits of text. The online preview will show the cutting lines to guide you. Lastly, upload your design to our online design system and experiment with the positioning of your image. If a low-quality warning appears, you may need to scale the image down, but can use a repeat tile effect or simply add other images. Our technicians will trim down any white spaces at the edge of the canvas around the bleed, so there are no borders visible.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
