As a wildly popular design expert, Jackie Glass creates stunning rooms, many of which are photographed.

“This is a recent project that I did and we have turned it into a mural for the purpose of our demo.  It was done by About Murals and I think they did a really great job.  I feel like I’m actually in that kitchen space again!” says celebrity designer, Jackie Glass.  (0:25)

Watch the entire episode to see the custom wallpaper we create together to use as a backdrop for her TV segment.

How to Make a Custom Photo Wallpaper

There are three ways to create your own custom made wallpaper with me:

  1. From your own photograph (I’ll explain below)
  2. Choose a unique image from iStock (like celebrity designer Kimberley Seldon)
  3. Add your logo, a graphic or fave quote over an in-stock wallpaper mural (like celebrity designers Colin and Justin)

Step 1: Send me your Photograph

To turn a photo into wallpaper, email me your image.  It needs to be high quality so it doesn’t look blurry.  To get the best clarity, you need a resolution of at least 20 MB (6000 pixels by 4000 pixels).  The more pixels the better, though.

Step 2: Buy the Custom Wallpaper

Order Custom Wallpaper from About Murals

You need wallpaper to print your photograph onto, right?  Buy the removable wallpaper from my online shop.

Measure the width and height of your wall and choose the wallpaper size that most closely matches.  A size with a couple extra inches is best, so you can trim the excess away from unlevel walls.

The cost of the custom wallpaper mural includes basic set up of your photo by a graphic designer, the wallpaper itself, a digital proof for approval and shipping within Canada or the Contiguous USA.

It gets shipped within 10 days after your approval.

Step 3: Hang your Custom Made Wallpaper

How to Hang Custom Photo Wallpaper

I always hang the custom made murals for the experts at Cityline, and offer installation services for clients in the greater Hamilton / Toronto areas, too.  If you live elsewhere, find a pro at the Wallcovering Installers Association.

BUT my wallpaper murals are easy to hang if you want to roll your sleeves up.  Simply follow this step-by-step installation video to help you along.

Removable Wallpaper

The experts at Cityline need fresh walls after each show is taped, and they trust my wall murals because they’re removable.

Although it’s strong enough to stay put for years, when you’re ready, just pull each panel off the wall.  You’ll be ready to redecorate in just minutes with no damage to the paint or sheetrock.
