Here are some of our most frequently asked questions.

What exactly is removable wallpaper?

Prepare to be amazed. Removable wallpaper is the answer to your prayers. It has the look and feel of real wallpaper with none of the headaches. No glue, no rolls, no hiring someone when you realize just how big of a job it really is.

So how removable is removable?

Chasing Paper uses a low-tack adhesive that will keep the wall you install it on looking fresh!  For best results we suggest adhering to walls with premium eggshell, satin or semi-gloss paint.  Matte finishes can be a bit trickier as the adhesive can bond and pull the paint.


What makes the Chasing Paper material different?

So glad you asked! First and foremost, it has the rich texture that you find on most traditional wallpapers – but it's actually a peel and stick fabric. This was a big sticking point for us (pun absolutely intended) because we wanted Chasing Paper to be removable, but not look that way. Our Sample Size is brought to you by popular demand – the people asked so we answered! The sample measures 9" x 12" and is a great way to test drive the material, match color or create some super cool mini project. Only catch is the samples are final sale.

What makes it stick?

If we told you, we would have to kill you. Kidding, it’s a low-tack adhesive that is non-toxic and will make you want to paper everything in your life.

Can I reuse it?

One of the greatest features of Chasing Paper is that it’s forgiving – if you hang it crooked (not that you ever would, you perfect thing, you) or decide that “Tri-angled” would be better on your south facing wall, go for it! Re-stick that sucker!

What kind of ink do you use? Will it give me a headache and/or buzz?

We use latex ink, which means zero fumes. It also means immediate curing/dry time, so there’s no smudging or discoloration.


What about bathrooms?  If things get steamy?

We tell folks that Chasing Paper if very similar to traditional wallpaper in that it does best if there is some ventilation.  Crack a window or turn on the fan and you should be just fine :)

How is Chasing Paper sold?

We sell our paper in 2' x 4' panels so installation is accessible and fun. Small projects are affordable and large projects are stress-free!

What surfaces should I stay away from?

Surfaces with a strong texture can get you into some trouble. It’s your world, of course, but it usually doesn’t end well.

Is Chasing Paper just meant for walls (‘cause I think that is kinda boring)?

Don’t get us wrong, we love us our walls, but Chasing Paper can be used in many more fantastically creative ways. Dress up your drawers, give your coffee table a face-lift, or brighten your backsplash - just be sure that it’s a clean, smooth surface (yes this means mirrors, lacquered cabinets)  Have an idea?

What is the lifespan of Chasing Paper?

If put up with a little TLC, Chasing Paper can last for several years!

Do I have to worry about ordering all the paper at once?  Will there be color variance between orders?

Yes, much like traditional wallpaper color can vary between batches.  While we very much strive to keep things consistent we cannot guarantee it as there are many variables at play.  We recommend padding your order by 10% + measuring twice :) 

What is Chasing Paper’s return policy?
