One of the unique things about our peel-and-stick removable wallpaper is the way it can be removed and re-positioned as needed when you’re putting it up. However, this won’t work on some surfaces, including:
Textured walls (although once you sand them down and clean them up, you should be OK)
Walls painted with certain water-based (porous) paints and/or flat matte finishes
Applying our peel-and-stick removable wallpaper to any of these surfaces can mess with its adhesiveness, and it might not come off easily (or worse, it could damage the surface).
In addition, we don’t recommend using our peel-and-stick removable wallpaper on freshly painted walls. It takes paint roughly 30-40 days to fully cure (even if it’s dry to the touch). Waiting those 4-6 weeks definitely makes a difference in making sure the wallpaper doesn’t bubble and the paint stays damage-free.
If you’re planning to apply our wallpaper to any of these surfaces, user discretion is advised.
If the paper accidentally gets stuck to itself, have someone help you slowly pull the panels away from each other. In some cases, this will leave you with a bit of slightly wrinkled paper whose errors may seem unrecognizable on the wall. However, this does sometimes pull the ink off the surface. Please be careful when handling our wallpaper, as Wild Habitat cannot be held responsible for errors like this.

What surfaces will Wild Habitat wallpaper work on?
We do not recommend textured walls. Our wallpaper works best on smooth, flat surfaces. This ensures maximum adhesion and limits the possibility of curling or even falling down! If you have textured walls we recommend sanding down the texture to ensure the longevity of your wallpaper. We know that might be a pain, but its definitely less painful than having your design dream shattered by fallen wallpaper!
Our wallpaper is notrecommended for glass, metal, marble, varnished wood or to cover existing vinyl. We cannot guarantee easy removal on those surfaces.

I just painted - do I need to wait to put up wallpaper?
Sorry to say, but you absolutely need to wait! It takes roughly 30-40 days for paint to fully cure. We agree, it is a bit of a detour on your road to adventurous design, but well worth it as it will ensure the paint underneath stays damage-free and your wallpaper stays bubble-free!
Can it be used outdoors?
It can though it truly depends on the region you live in as weather will affect the adhesion. But if you’re looking for some short-term, fun backgrounds for an outdoor event, Wild Habitat’s wallpapers are an excellent solution.

I accidentally stuck some paper together, what do I do?
If your wallpaper gets stuck to itself all may not be lost. If you're of the fortunate you should be able to have someone help you slowly pull the panels away from each other. In some cases this will only leave you with some slightly wrinkled paper whose errors may seem unrecognizable on the wall. Sometimes it may pull the ink off the surface so you want to be very very careful! Wild Habitat can not be held responsible for errors like this.
I got the wallpaper wet, what do I do?
If your wallpaper gets a liquid on it make sure to gently spot dry it. Do not wipe the paper with pressure. Spot drying the paper carefully and gently tends to preserve the ink on the surface with minimal smudging. Scrubbing smears!
