General Product Information
What is anewall?
Started in 2013 by two sisters-in-law, anewall was created for people searching for an affordable vintage wall decor lineup. Since our conception, we have evolved into a luxury wall decor company that seeks to provide a breath of fresh air for consumers searching within the cheap, bland, and otherwise repetitive wall decor marketplace. anewall is all about allowing the customer to customize their space to be unique and different. We want your space to be a statement, and we are happy and honoured to help you create that.
Where are your products manufactured?
All anewall products are produced in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
What are your wallpapers and wall murals printed on?
We offer three different types of material for our wallpaper and mural designs:
1. Pre-pasted Wallpaper - our classic, semi-matte finish wall covering option. It is a permanent wall covering option and simply requires water to activate the pre-pasted adhesive on the back of the paper. It doesn't require additional glue or paste. This is our simplest and favourite “DIY” installation method.
2. Traditional Wallpaper - our classic, flat-matte finish wall covering option. Our thickest and most luxurious material. It is a permanent wall covering option that requires a wallpaper paste/glue for installation. We highly recommend hiring a professional for installation.
3. Peel & Stick - our temporary wallpaper application that uses a quick sticker backing removal installation process. It is a semi-matte finish vinyl material with a removable adhesive. This product can be removed easily from your walls and is great for renters! This one can be tricky to install so we highly recommend hiring a professional for installation or having at least one person to help you install.
How should I apply the wallpaper?
You can find installation videos and instructions at our Installation page. We also include installation instructions with your order.
Install your wallpaper Left to Right!
Always make sure to lineup the design between Peel & Stick panels before peeling the backing.
Keep the wallpaper in the install room for at least 12 hours beforehand. This keeps the material from shrinking and expanding once installed.
Always use a ruler when trimming the excess material
How long will the mural and wallpaper stay up?
Our Self Adhesive Vinyl products are perfect for temporary application uses. However, if you take care of your product, it has the potential to last for years. Our Self Adhesive Vinyl product will generally last 2-3 years indoors. Do try to keep your adhesive product away from sunlight and heat sources as this can damage the adhesive and cause your product to peel. We cannot guarantee the anewall adhesives durability outdoors due to varying weather conditions. Our Pre-pasted and Traditional products are permanent wall covering options and will last indefinitely.
Eco-friendly wallpaper material options?
All our wallpaper materials are printed with our water based inks. We have two super eco-friendly wallpaper options... Traditional and Pre-pasted wallpaper materials are GreenGuard Gold Certified and PVC free.

What surfaces can I apply the murals and wallpapers to?
We highly recommend smooth wall surfaces for installation. If your wall is rough, bumpy or newly painted, the product may not be able to fully adhere to the wall. anewall cannot be held responsible if any graphics applied to a bumpy texture that do not stick. That being said, most applications should fare well.
If you have a textured wall begin by sanding the surface down to prevent bubbling from occurring during application. Then, grab a clean, damp cloth and wipe down the surface. Allow one to two days of dry time before applying your mural. Do NOT wash your mural with soaps of any kind or any other liquid cleaner. Instead, opt for a dry cloth to clean your anewall product.
What happens if I make a mistake with my installation?
No problem! With our Self Adhesive Vinyl material option, just peel it off your wall and try again! Always make sure to take care in preparation of your wall surface and removing your wall decal.
For Traditional and Pre-Pasted Wallpaper applications we cannot be held responsible for installation errors. However, please contact us and we’d love to help you resolve any issues.
How should I remove the mural or wallpaper?
The removal of our Self Adhesive Vinyl products is easy! Expose a corner of your design with your fingernail and slowly peel it off the wall. Be patient in your removal technique to decrease the chance of any paint specks coming off with the removal of the product. If you’ve applied your vinyl product to a less porous surface like glass, we recommend that you use a hairdryer (set to a low heat) to warm the product. This slightly releases the adhesive, making it even easier to peel off.
The removal of our Pre-Pasted and Traditional Wallpaper products will require a standard wallpaper soak and strip process.
Will the Self Adhesive Vinyl products damage my wall?
No, our Self Adhesive Vinyl products should not leave any residue or paint damage. However, we cannot be sure of the condition and quality of your painted wall surface, and some paint flecking may occur. If this occurs, some minor paint touch-ups will be required. Be slow and careful with your removals.
What is Monet Canvas?
Our Neschen Monet Canvas is a heavyweight-coated canvas. This canvas is strong, yet flexible and has a matte finish. The monet canvas specialized coating allows for a vibrant, photorealistic print that is sure to impress.
What is a Matte Print?
We use the highest quality, 10 mil Matte Paper that provides the highest quality photorealistic prints. The Matte Print is an excellent choice for image clarity, bringing accurate and vibrant color reproduction to your print. Use this material in the frame of your choice for the best results.
