How do you make your wallpaper?
Most of our papers are printed by hand. The process we use is called screen printing. We also have some papers that are digitally printed.
Where are FV products made?
All of our products are made in the USA.
How much wallpaper do I need?
We recommend asking your paper hanger for an estimate. All repeat information can be found on the product page, and the back of your samples. Also feel free to contact us and we can give you a ballpark figure. We assume no liability for any miscalculations.
How do you package your rolls?
Our papers come packaged as double and triple rolls when possible. That is 30 or 45 continuous feet of pattern to allow for the least amount of waste.
Are your papers suitable for a hospitality/commercial environment?
Our production wallpapers are suitable for commercial use in light traffic and decorative areas. If you need something more substantial, we can coat any of our papers with a vinyl coating that gives them the same serviceability as Type 2 papers. We can also print any of our patterns on vinyl. Additional assistance and information can be found here.
Will you turn my drawing/design/doodle/photo/etc. into wallpaper for me?
No. We are sorry, but we are not a print studio. We only print patterns that we have designed.
Can you recreate/copy/reproduce etc. this other wallpaper pattern?
Can you print this wallpaper that XYZ company doesn’t make anymore?
See two answers back. Also, we do not own the copyrights to other’s patterns, and it does not matter if the company no longer exists.
Do you hire freelance designers or artists?
No, we design all of our products in house.
What types of inks do you use?
Our digital papers are printed with latex based inks. Our hand printed papers are printed with solvent based inks.
Why do you print with solvent based inks?
Solvent based inks are more durable and more beautiful.
Isn’t that bad for the environment?
All of our inks are made in the USA. The waste is also recycled rather than washed down the drain, a common practice with water-based inks.
Can you make me something special?
Of course! View our Custom Patterns page.
Can you make this pattern in a different color?
We would love to make any of our papers in any color you like. View our Custom Colorways page.
What is an aglet?
An aglet is the plastic thing on the end of your shoelaces.
Do you also hang wallpaper?
No, we leave that to the professionals.
Then who should hang my beautiful paper?
We recommend finding a paper hanger on the National Guild of Paper Hanger’s website. They’re the best.
I rent, what should I do?
Go for it anyway! Landlords love pattern too. With the right paste, and liner paper your paper will be easily removed. Alternatively, we sell all of our patterns as 27″ by 40″ sheets to be framed. We are not responsible for upset landlords, or your security deposit.
Can you print your wallpapers on that reusable adhesive paper?
No. The truth is that that stuff isn’t reusable, and we are not fans of its appearance. No offense to those companies who use it.
Is wallpaper good for a bathroom/kitchen?
Yes it is! If you’re really worried we can print any of our patterns on a vinyl ground, and even coat it with a extremely durable vinyl coating or clear varnish. Also there are a number of roll/brush on varnish/coating/finishes out there. We recommend testing the compatibility of those products with our papers. Test a scrap or your sample before going nuts and coating the whole room. We are not responsible for the performance or appearance of these products on our wallpapers.
Do you offer trade discounts?
Yes of course! Our standard is a 20% discount for orders of 5 rolls or more. We require a resale or business certificate and a business card to prove that you’re the real deal. Please visit the Trade Accounts page to apply.
