Can I apply Tempaper to a brick wall?

We do not recommend applying Tempaper to any surface that is coarse or rough.  Unfortunately, textured surfaces, don’t work with our product.  We recommend that Tempaper be applied to smooth surfaces that are in good condition; primed and painted with a premium eggshell, satin or semi-gloss paint.

Can I apply Tempaper to a painted wall with a matte finish?

We do not recommend applying Tempaper to matte or flat paints. We recommend applying Tempaper to the following paint finishes:  Premium Eggshell, Semi-Gloss, or Satin.

What will happen if I apply Tempaper to a wall that has been painted with flat or matte paint?

Tempaper uses a water-based adhesive that could soak into the dry, matte surface which could cause paint to be peeled away upon removal. We have had successful removals on matte and flat paint, however to be safe we recommend using satin or semi-gloss paints.

Can I apply Tempaper to a mirror?

Tempaper can be applied to a mirrored surface and will not leave any residue behind, however it can be difficult to reposition the product on this type of surface. 

Can I put Tempaper up in my bathroom?

YES! We use a non-breathable substrate so Tempaper can be installed in bathrooms with indirect moisture.  The heat or steam will not affect its performance.

Can Tempaper be applied to wood paneling?

Yes, Tempaper can be applied to many different surfaces.   Depending on how much texture the wood paneling may have can be the deciding factor on whether or not Tempaper will stay adhered.  Also, if the paneling is older the surface/clear coat could be removed upon Tempaper removal.  When dealing with any rental space or unique indoor surface, we always recommend purchasing a sample and applying it to a non-discreet area of the wall. In a couple days you will know if Tempaper is right for you. 

Can Tempaper be applied to existing wallpaper?

Tempaper can be applied to existing wallpaper however, we cannot guarantee Tempaper can be peeled off from the existing wallpaper or that it won’t damage the existing paper.  Since you are working with a unique surface, we always recommend that you purchase a sample to test.

Can I apply Tempaper to surfaces other than a wall?

Yes! It is perfect for small DIY projects including, but definitely not limited to: dressers, stair risers, cabinets, bookshelves, drawers and headboards.

Do you recommend overlapping panels?

Yes, it is recommended that you slightly overlap from panel to panel to avoid splitting seams in environments that can be subjected to temperature variances.

Is LOT number important when ordering?

When ordering Tempaper, it is important to purchase the same lot number to avoid color variances. When you place an order on our website we will always ship you the same lot. However, if you place a new order for the same item it is important that you request the same lot number to avoid color variances.  Whether you buy your rolls from Tempaperdesigns.com or a Tempaper stockist, please make sure that your lot numbers for your project are the same.

What is the difference between a drop match pattern and a straight match pattern?

A drop match pattern consists of design elements that will repeat diagnonally from panel to panel. When ordering a drop match print please make sure you order up because you will have more waste aligning. A straight match pattern consists of design elements that will repeat horizontally from panel to panel. All patterns on Tempaperdesigns.com (excluding Chinoiserie) are straight match patterns UNLESS otherwise stated. Not sure how much wallpaper to order? Try our wallpaper calculator.
