    On item 410-93984, if is back lighted on glass, does it show up brighter or can you see thru it?

      Hi Betty
      This is not a window decal so it is not transparent and not designed to be see through, or to refract light. Backlighting it would not cause it to look brighter, and the design is only printed on one side of the decal. The sticky backing is white. It should stick to your glass just fine as it will stick to most smooth, flat surfaces. For decals designed to be enjoyed on glass and seen from both sides, please shop our window decor section here: http://www.wallpops.com/window-decor.aspx Thank you for the inquiry & best of luck with your design projects! Sincerely, WallPops!

    I’m looking to use the WallPops on my stair risers. Is it best to get a stripe (Malaya Stripe) or dot (Carnevale Dot)? Also, how many come in each order?

      July 28, 2014

      Hi Myra! Great question! We recommend the stripes. The Malaya Stripes come with 1 in a pack, in a continuous roll that is 6.5″ wide x 12′ long. It can easily be cut to fit any width stair riser. Best of luck with yoru decor project – we would LOVE to see a photo of how it turns out! Thank you

    My apartment complex won’t let me use piracy film on the windows..are thy able to be used on window shades? Either regular wall pops or film..everything has to be removable.

      Hi Peg – thank you for reaching out. You most likely would not be able to get the window film to stick to a flexible surface like a window shade. Our window film is specifically designed to be stuck to glass. You may be able to work with the WallPops wall decals, though, which have a sticky backing. They will peel off easily when you are ready to move, too. However, the movement of the window shade may cause them to fall off. If you typically leave the shades down and do not roll them up frequently we suspect that they would stay on for longer. It really depends on the material that the shades are made of, too. If they are porous, or textured, then the WallPops would be less likely to stick. Best of luck with your window decor project, we would love to see how it turns out!

    I have a pack of circle wall pops. I want to know if i can write on them with dry erase and not ruin them??? I understand you have dry erase products and I’m not sure if this is one of them. If it were, where would it say “dry erase” on the package?

      Hi Abigael
      Thanks for the question! Yes, if these were dry-erase they would definitely say so on the package. We have dots that are dry-erase, and dots that are not so you want to make sure you are working with the dry-erase ones before you write on them. Here is a link to the dry-erase dots: http://www.wallpops.com/dry-erase-dots.aspx

    I want to completely cover a ceiling to floorboard MIRRORED entry wall. Thinking the NuWallpaper might do the trick! Older home (40 years) so want something chic (maybe with yellow) for red rug, shoe/briefcase wood bench & “tree” for hanging hats & leashes. We live at on the Gulf & hotter climate. Any suggestions at all seriously appreciated. I’m not Martha and thus would be a first (successful) project. Thanks for opinions, suggestions, etc. (it’s not a grand entryway, darker is why I thought of yellow cheerful…or perhaps a more sophisticatied yet comfortable route. I’m afraid I’ll choose the wrong thing.

      Hi Marian! Thanks for reaching out. We agree – the NuWallpaper should do the trick! It is very easy and fun to work with and we would love to hear how it turns out. Yellow is lovely to brighten up a space. Check out the Grey and Yellow Suzani and the Yellow Awning Stripe . Or, perhaps living near the Gulf the Beachwood would be a good fit? We also love this one to freshen up a space and add a touch of enchantment.

    I have an old dresser. It’s long, white and had 9 drawers with a faux wicker front on each drawer. The top is scratched and I’d like to decorate with wallpops. Would they work for a dresser top made of veneer?
    Thanks, Joyce

      Hi Joyce,
      Thank you for reaching out. To answer your question, yes! We have many different styles of WallPops what will stick to any smooth, flat surface. Our line of peel and stick wallpaper, NuWallpaper, is perfect for DIY projects like what you’re trying to do. The best part is that NuWallpaper can be taken off in seconds without harming your dresser, so if you change your design if you change your mind.
      We have smaller WallPops called Blox and Stripes that have a similar effect and are also removable.
      If you’re looking for something permanent, we also carry a line of sticky back plastics that are meant to transform a surface. They are not removable, but come in a medley of patterns from faux marble to florals.

    I was wondering if the wallpaper will stick to a basement floor that already has peel and stick cheap tile looking sheets put down , if I could just stick it over top of that ? Without it lifting . Also was wondering if the wallpaper is good for covering a kitchen counter without lifting and if it’s touched by water or spills or while cleaning it will that be a problem ?

      Hi Kathleen! Yes, they will as it is a flat and smooth surface. If it is not insulated and exposed to extreme temperature changes, however, the lifespan of the decal may be affected.

    Hello, How is the wallpops wallpaper shipped? Is it on a roll or folded? I am a photographer and think these would be great for photography backdrops. How would I store them between shoots?

    • Reply


      August 15, 2016

      Hi Shelley! We’ve had quite a few people use NuWallpaper for backdrops! They come on a roll that is 20.5 inches wide x 18 feet long. If you did want to reuse them after installing for a shoot, you would need to peel off the wall and re-stick them onto the wax-paper-like backing it comes on. We will say that while it can be done, it may be time-consuming to stick the strips back onto the paper for storage, and that most people use NuWallpaper as a one-time application for the ease of taking it down when changing the design or moving.

    Just FYI. You have a broken link. At this point: http://blog.wallpops.com/why-stop-with-walls-jazz-up-everything-from-appliances-to-stairs/, when I click on the picture of the distressed wood wallpops on the stair risers, I’m taken to a blue quatrefoil. That’s probably not where the link should go.

      Hi Amy,

      Thank you for reaching out. We don’t recommend putting these tiles on the floor. They have slick coating and would not hold up to foot traffic. They’re more suited for walls.

    I’d like to use ITEM #: WPSS1984 to cover an area (side of a cabinet – wood paneling) about 24″ x 36″. Could I just cut this to fit? Thanks very much!

    • Reply


      October 4, 2016

      Hi Sue! We love that idea! Yes, you could definitely cut it to fit- the stair decals come on a roll that is 6.5 inches wide and 144 inches long. So you could cut four 36 inch long strips (or 24, depending on the direction you want to place them in, in which case you would cut 6 strips) and place side by side to fill that space. You may have to trim either the two end pieces or the last one depending on how you position them, as 24 or 36 don’t divide equally by 6.5. Scissors or an x-acto knife work great for trimming WallPops!

    What is the difference between the WallPops, sticky back plastics and the film? I want to use on my kitchen countertop and something different on the backsplash. Would I need to use Kilz first so color would not show through the peel and stick I decide on? Thank you!

      Hi Vickie,
      Thank you for reaching out! Sticky back plastics are great for countertops and refinishing surfaces. They are not safe for walls. NuWallpaper and our backsplash tiles are better for walls.
      NuWallpaper is completely removable and can be used on any smooth, flat surface. It is thicker than the plastics, but does not have the high shine finish.

      We would recommend ordering a sample or applying a full test strip to see how well it stays over a week or so.

      May 12, 2017

      Hi Laura,
      Thank you for reaching out! We have not tested WallPops on ceramic tiles, so we cannot say how well they would adhere. WallPops stick best to smooth, flat surfaces, so they would most likely adhere well to the main portion of the tile, but may curl at the edges.
