Raster format is a digital format that uses pixels (like a photograph) and consists of a flat single layered image. Please note that due to licensing restrictions, we will contact you to confirm use of imagery before sending the file to you. If you would like to talk through your usage in proposed advance then please call us on 01993 880 939. Raster data format can only be blown up by a finite amount before pixelation of the image occurs and the picture quality suffers.
Fitting and installation
Our pre-pasted wallpaper from HP needs no additional adhesive and is so simple to install that you won't need to pay for a commercial decorator to do it for you (although we have fitters available should you wish - call us on 01993 880 939 to discuss).
The wallpaper is PVC free and is printed using HP's Latex inks ensuring you get a more environmentally friendly mural compared to one produced with solvent inks. It is also odor-free making it safe for all rooms in the home and commercial interiors where the initial solvent smell would be an issue such as schools, restaurants, cafes and offices. The ultra smooth finish and the latex base of the inks provide vivid colour graphics with high-definition detail.
When the time comes to redecorate, the wallpaper is so easy to remove that HP provide a warranty for clean removal making it ideal for exhibition graphics or rented properties. You can then package up the stripped wall covering and recycle it through HP's Planet Partners Recycling Program.
