Personalised Wallpaper Borders: How it Works

Our wallpaper borders come in individual strips at 146 cm x 22 cm, custom printed with your photos or design. All instructions on how to install your border paper are provided with your order, but we always recommend reading our Wallpaper Installation Guide for best results. 


Step 1: Measure Up

Using a measure, measure the room or wall that you're looking to decorate with bespoke borders, so you only buy enough strips and don't end up with a lot of waste. It's always better to have a bit too much than too little, to compensate for errors etc and buy an extra strip. 


Step 2: Upload Photos or Design

Upload your image, text or artwork then position your image until happy. If the low-quality warning appears, try scaling your image down, or adding a tile effect.


Step 3: Choose your wallpaper border paper

We offer wallpaper borders in a choice of four different types. Standard, premium, brushed textured and linen textured. You can choose which you would prefer using our design tool. 

Care: Should you need to clean your bedroom borders, gently wipe with a mild, soapy sponge, using as little moisture as possible. Do not 'scrub' - whilst the inks will not run, a natural nap in the paper might become apparent.


Mounting Your Border

Before you start applying your borders, use a spirit level to mark out all your measurements on the wall. Keep it handy, as you’ll need it to adjust your borders to make sure you get the perfect fit. For the Standard paper, mix good quality wallpaper paste, according to the instructions on the packet; we recommend you use Solvite Extra Strong or Murabond. Paste the reverse of your borders using a 3” brush, then apply to your wall. You should be able to reposition it slightly whilst the paste is still moist. We strongly recommend you refer to our Wallpaper Installation Guide before attempting to install yourself.

TIP!: We are here to advise if there is anything you need to discuss before installation. Once the material has been applied to the wall, the product is deemed accepted and cannot be claimed as defective due to variations in mounting, adhesives, handling, and local environment (including humidity, heat, weathering). Once you decide to cover the wall, we cannot be held liable for preparing or pasting the wall. Please read our Wallpaper Installation Guide before attempting to install and feel free to Contact Us if you need more information.

Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

How to add your collage to your product

Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images of just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 10 centimetres. There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

Printed especially for you

We print each of the strips for your wallpaper borders individually and to order so that you only ever need to buy the amount that you need. You can create each strip separately so you can choose between having a repeating pattern, or a continuous design that evolves as it spans your room. Each strip is hand printed by expert digital print technicians and cut to size by skilled craftsmen. 

Perfect personalisation

Each wall border paper strip is 147 cm x 22cm, so make sure that you measure the total length that you need. For example, if the wall you're looking to personalise is 155 cm wide, then you'll need two strips. You can print a single design or create a photo collage for a funky photo memory wallpaper border. 

Give your home a touch of class and recreate Victorian style bedroom borders for the ceiling. Creating faux coving is a unique way to bring period features to modern houses. Use them to break up your bedroom, as a boundary between two different paint colours, or place above and below a traditional dado rail. 

Design your own children's wallpaper borders to give their rooms quirky individuality. For boys, wallpaper borders featuring comic book characters, cars or sports will look great and their friends will love it. Or for little ones, dinosaur wallpaper border is a fun design that will also trigger their curiosity for learning. Another creative idea is a slightly messy one, but totally worth it; get out the paint and let them create kids wallpaper borders using their hand and footprints. Scan the image and upload it into our design tool. 

Celebrate the arrival of your new baby and personalise the nursery wallpaper borders with the alphabet, numbers or colours. Or, create a photo montage of their very first pictures - a beautiful way to capture the memories of their first days on Earth. 

There are so many ways you can use our wide wallpaper borders in your home. Use individual border paper strips for each step for an original staircase design. Wallpaper Stair Risers are a great way of breathing life into a bare wooden staircase, and the contrast between the blank steps and the colourful risers creates a bold contrast that’s bound to get guests talking.
