MAGIC WALL PAPER INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1
Check Your NuWall­pa­per

  • Check all batch & pat­tern num­bers match
  • Check all rolls are undam­aged & free from mis­prints
  • Check all col­ors match roll to roll & edge to edge
  • Check you have suf­fi­cient rolls to com­plete the job, allow­ing for design repeat

Step 2
Gath­er Your Tools

  • Tape Mea­sure
  • Lev­el (or Plumb Bob) & Pen­cil
  • Ruler or Straight Edge
  • Util­i­ty Knife & Plas­tic Smoother Set
  • Step Stool or Step Lad­der

Step 3
Pre­pare Your Walls

  1. Let the prod­uct acclimate/acclimatize in the room it will be applied, for a min­i­mum of 48 hours.
  2. Clean sur­face using warm water only. If chem­i­cal clean­ers, or soap is used, there can be no residue.
  3. Allow at least 4 weeks for new­ly paint­ed sur­faces to ful­ly cure (or longer, if rec­om­mend­ed by paint man­u­fac­tur­er)
  4. Test prod­uct in an incon­spic­u­ous loca­tion of sur­face before apply­ing to desired loca­tion.

Sur­faces must be smooth, dry, clean & firm. The prod­uct may not adhere to unclean/textured sur­faces. LEARN MORE about sur­faces not rec­om­mend­ed for appli­ca­tion.

Step 4
Hang Your First Strip

  1. Draw a straight ver­ti­cal line using your lev­el, 20 inch­es (50cm) from the left hand side of your wall, unless hang­ing a fea­ture wall, where you should start in the cen­ter to ensure sym­me­try espe­cial­ly on large scale designs. This is a guide for your first length/strip, so it’s impor­tant for it to be straight.
  2. Peel about 12 inch­es (30cm) of the back­ing away. Apply the front sheet to the top of the wall, allow­ing a bit of excess to over­lap the ceil­ing. Align the right side of the length/strip to your mark & press to the smooth, clean, dry wall. Work­ing from top to bot­tom, pull the back­ing away as you even­ly press the paper to the wall.
  3. When peel­ing the back­ing away be care­ful around the edges to avoid paper­cuts. Remove the sheet to repo­si­tion if need­ed.
  4. Use a plas­tic smoother to push out any air bub­bles from the cen­ter out­wards. Apply­ing mod­er­ate pres­sure use the smoother over the full sur­face area of the prod­uct to ensure firm adhe­sion to the wall.
  5. Trim along the top & bot­tom of the length/strip using a straight edge & sharp util­i­ty knife. It’s impor­tant to use the smoother to ensure adhe­sion.

Do not stretch the mate­r­i­al. This can cause gaps between the seams over­time.

Step 5
Apply Remain­ing Strips

  1. Apply the next strip/length accord­ing to the instruc­tions above, slight­ly over­lap­ping & match­ing the pat­tern to the first strip/length. If you are hav­ing dif­fi­cul­ty with an uneven cor­ner, try cut­ting into the cor­ner rather than wrap­ping from one wall to the next.
  2. Slight­ly over­lap­ping lengths/strips by approx­i­mate­ly 1/32in (0.5mm) is rec­om­mend­ed.

If the prod­uct is not slight­ly over­lapped when it shrinks back, it will leave a gap.

Step 6
Clean Your NuWall­pa­per

NuWall­pa­per® may be wiped with a slight­ly damp cloth. Exces­sive liq­uid may dam­age the prod­uct and is not rec­om­mend­ed.

Step 7
Remove or Repo­si­tion Your NuWall­pa­per

Slow­ly pull edge from top cor­ner direct­ly down­ward. NuWall­pa­per® adhe­sive is repo­si­tion­able & always remov­able.

Before You Hang Your NuWall­pa­per

While every pre­cau­tion is tak­en to ensure that this prod­uct reach­es you in per­fect con­di­tion it is your respon­si­bil­i­ty to check it is free from defect before & dur­ing hang­ing.

The man­u­fac­tur­er can­not be held liable for costs incurred due to incor­rect hang­ing tech­nique, or hang­ing defec­tive wall­pa­per, if by pre­lim­i­nary inspec­tion the defect would have been found.

We rec­om­mend com­plet­ing the Start­ing Check­list, found in Step 1, then after hang­ing 2–3 lengths check again before con­tin­u­ing. To resolve com­plaints, sam­ples & labels must be returned. This does not affect your statu­to­ry rights.

WARNINGS: To min­i­mize the haz­ard in the event of a fire do not hang wall­cov­er­ings over expand­ed poly­styrene veneers & ensure wall­cov­er­ings are always firm­ly stuck down.

Sur­faces Not Rec­om­mend­ed for Appli­ca­tion

We do not rec­om­mend hang­ing NuWall­pa­per on the fol­low­ing sur­faces:

Tex­tured Walls
Wall­pa­per
Brick/Cinderblock
Unpaint­ed Drywall/Sheetrock or Plas­ter
Out­doors
Non-stick Paint

If you are hang­ing this prod­uct around sock­ets or switch­es, switch off main pow­er, unscrew fix­tures & clean out all dust pri­or to start­ing as this will neg­a­tive­ly affect adhe­sion.

Any damp issues must be cor­rect­ed before appli­ca­tion of this wall­cov­er­ing.
