Hanging Custom Wallpaper

Hanging custom wallpaper or vinyl wall graphics may seem like an easy task, and a way you could save some money by doing it yourself (or having your handy nephew do it for you). But if you’ve hired a professional sign designer to create custom wall art for your business, then it’s worth it to have a professional wallpaper hanger install it.

Like most skills, it takes a lot of practice to hang wallpaper. It starts with good measurements, an understanding of the wall surface and condition, and a project plan for working around doors, windows, outlets, switches and other variables. Knowing how to overlap the graphics, and using the right tools are critical to success.


Our designers are trained and experienced in hanging a variety of wall displays, whether it’s simple lettering and graphics, or full wall covering. But in certain situations we’ll recommend using a certified wallpaper installer. These are people who have had extensive training and are members of the Wallcovering Installers Association. In many cases they are second or third-generation professionals who have honed their craft to perfection. They work fast and know how to handle difficult situations, saving you time and headaches in the long run.

So why not just paint? According to the Wallcovering Installers Association, wallpaper is not only more aesthetically pleasing, it’s also more economical. See the financial comparison to paint here as well as a list of the different types of wallpaper available. Whether for home, office, restaurant or retail store, wallpaper is a great way to add beauty and better performance to your space. Just make sure it’s hung right the first time.
