What Adhesive should be used?

We recommend the use of our specially sourced and tested Glitter Wallpaper Adhesive. Where the recommended adhesive has not been used, we cannot be held responsible for any irregularities/inconsistencies or phenomenon’s that may occur from the use of unsuitable paste.

How much Adhesive do I require?

A 5kg Adhesive can cover approximately 16 metres of Glitter fabric wallcovering which is equivalent to 11m2. Our Adhesive is sold in 5kg and 10kg tubs

What is the difference between Sparkle and Stardust?

Both ranges fabric back, our Sparkle range is a more textured Glitter wallcovering with raised, chunky sequences whereas our Stardust range is a smooth, textured Glitter wallcovering with a more flat, grainy finish. Both are as equally spectacular as one another however for a commercial interior where customers/clients may be in constant contact with the Glitter we would recommend the Sparkle product due to it being more hard wearing.

Do you discount Glitter Wallcovering?

Due to the high volume of Glitter wallcovering we send out daily, we have decided to deduct over 20% off all of our Glitter wallcoverings meaning we are unable to deduct any further discount. For orders of 75 metres and over, please email our sales team for a quotation.

Do you accept Returns?

As our Glitter wallcovering is a bespoke, specially cut to your specification product, we are therefore unable to accept returns once your order has been sent out. Due to this, we strongly advise you double check all quantities with your decorator before ordering to avoid any under/over ordering

How accurate are your Website Images?

We try our best to make images as accurate as possible. Our sample service is put in place so that you can see exact colours of our Glitter wallcovering before ordering. On screen variations may occur due to different resolutions on monitors, we therefore advise you to order a sample. Please note: Where we try our best to copyright and protect our images from unauthorised reproduction, we have found a number of companies that are using our images to advertise their lower quality imitation of our Glitter wallcovering. Please be sure that you order a sample of all Glitter wallcoverings you come across to avoid any disappointment.


Does the Glitter Shed/Fall off when on the wall?

You can expect a small amount of shedding when applying the glitter to the wall however the product is very hard wearing and the Glitter will not fall off.

Is the Glitter washable?

Due to the material and heavy duty glue used to make this product, the Glitter is not washable and should not come in contact with water as this will damage the product. You can use a dry soft brush or cloth to clean the glitter wallcovering.

Is the Glitter wallcovering easy to remove?

You can peel the fabric off of the wall without damaging the overall look of the Glitter. As our specialist adhesive is heavy duty and designed for the Glitter to stay on the wall, it will prove slightly more difficult than a normal paper based roll to remove. You may experience paint loss on the wall when trying to remove the product.

Can you hang Glitter on newly plastered walls?

We do not recommend that glitter is applied in new build properties or newly plastered walls before a 12 month period due to reactions that take place within the wall components. It is always best to allow newly plastered walls to fully dry out before hanging any type of wallpaper or wallcovering. When fabric backed or textured wallcoverings are hung on the wall they do not allow for the wall to breathe which may cause moisture and reaction with the walls components.

Is Glitter suitable for wet/moist environments

Like with all wallcoverings, Damp and Humid areas can have a negative effect on the overall appearance. You should consider the environment area you're installing the wallcovering in to be sure the product is not defected. With this said, a lot of customers use the Glitter in Kitchens and Bathrooms. This however would be left at customer discretion.

Is the Glitter suitable for outdoor use?

As this is a wall decoration product we would advise against this however providing the Glitter is not in contact with rain/water and direct UV lighting then this may be considered.

Can your Glitter wallcovering be used for any other purpose?

As our Glitter wallcovering is fabric backed, many of our customers use our glitter to create pelmets, curtain track decor, cushions and blinds. You can see all the creative ideas that can be made by the use of our Glitter by visiting our Glitter showcase on our main Glitter page under the "links" section.
