Samples of wallpaper and border are available for $5 each.  The sample fee is refundable at the rate of a sample fee for each unit subsequently purchased.  If the subsequent purchase is by phone, remind us of your sample fee, and we can immediately apply your refund, or if your subsequent purchase is online, remind us of your sample fee under "note to seller," and we will refund your sample fee.

To obtain a Return Authorization call our office at (610) 901-3516 or e-mail us.  Special order borders, murals, fabrics, blinds, commercial wallcovering, and closeouts are not returnable.  All merchandise is guaranteed to be 1st quality.  Damaged or defective merchandise, and orders lost by our shipper, will be replaced.

   
       
       
       
       
       
   

How do you charge for shipping and handling?

For continental US orders, we charge a shipping and handling charge that approximates our handling and UPS, FEDEX, Airborne, and USPS costs.   For international orders, our shopping cart calculates shipping charges for USPS 1st Class International, or USPS Priority International, depending upon size and weight.  If an adjustment to the shopping cart shipping charges calculation needs to be made, we will advise via email.  International orders may be subject to local import tariffs, which we do not collect, or pay.  E-mail, or call us at 1-866-444-0495 (US and Canada), or 1-610-901-3516 (worldwide), for shipping and handling charges on air shipments, international orders, or for shipments to Alaska or Hawaii.

   
       
   

How do I estimate how much wallpaper will be needed?

Wallpaper comes in bolts (also called "double roll bolts").  A bolt of wallpaper (55-60 sq ft) will contain about 40 to 50 usable sq. ft, depending on the size of the pattern repeat.  Most wallpaper comes either 20.5" x 33' or 27" x 27' per bolt  (grasscloth is different, and comes in bolts that are 36" x 24', containing 72 sq ft).  There are two popular methods of estimating:

   
       
       
       
   

Method #1:  Calculate the area of the walls to be covered and divide by the usable sq. ft. per bolt (the usable sq. ft. per bolt estimates can be as low as 40 sq. ft for large repeats of 20-24" to as high as 50 sq. ft for small repeats of 1-2" or random matches); deduct   bolt for each door or window that fully breaks a strip of wallpaper.

   
       
       
       
      Example:  To paper an 8' high x 12' long wall with a 20" straight match pattern repeat wallpaper, first calculate the square feet of wall to be covered; 8' x 12' = 96 sq. ft.  Allowing 40 sq. ft. per bolt, you would need 96 sq. ft. /40 usable sq. ft per bolt = 2.4 bolts, or, rounding up, three bolts of wallpaper.    
       
       
       
   

Method #2:  Calculate the number and length of strips needed (allowing for pattern repeats); then figure how many bolts would be required to yield the strips needed.

   
       
       
      Example:  To paper an 8' high x 12' long wall with a 20" pattern repeat wallpaper, first calculate the number of strips needed to cover the wall.  If the wallpaper comes in 20.5" x 33' bolts, it would take eight strips of wallpaper 20.5" wide to cover a 144" (12') wall.  Next figure how many bolts would be required to yield eight strips.  Each strip would have to be five pattern repeats (100") to cover the 8' (96") high wall.  Since each bolt is 33' (396") long, each bolt would yield three 100" long strips.  To get eight strips, then, would require three bolts of wallpaper.    
       
       
       
       
       
       
   

How is border different from wallpaper?

Border is usually packaged in 15' spools whereas wallpaper is most commonly packaged in double roll bolts that are 20.5" x 33'.  When border is applied to slick surfaces such as glossy paint or vinyl wallcovering, or when border is used in humid areas such as bathrooms or kitchens, more than just wetting and applying prepasted border is required to insure proper adhesion.  In situations requiring extra adhesion, use border adhesive to apply border over wallpaper and use an acrylic primer to apply border directly to a wall.
