2012 Clearance Sale – Tips on buying clearance wallpapers

We try not to have too many sales. It is part of our ethos to just sell fairly and at good prices.

But when our UK manufacturer approached us with their clearance deals we were flummoxed.

‘We have already had our annual sale,” I wailed. But how can we not pass on these amazing deals to you?

So as I spend my Friday night loading these up, I realise that there are also some important things that people should be aware of when buying clearance wallpapers.

Tips for buying clearance wallpapers:


Wallpaper is not like buying any other product (fabrics excluded). They are printed in batch numbers. It is extremely important to buy the same batch number because colours vary from batch to batch. I have had customers buy one roll of wallpaper and return many months later to buy another. So much time has passed that it is impossible to get the same batch and the initial role is then wasted. When buying online always check that there is more in stock if you are not sure about your calculations.


If you are buying wallpapers and the word ‘clearance’ is attached then this wallpaper is going out of print. That means that the wallpaper will probably be reduced in price. Great it’s cheap. While it’s cheap consider buying a spare roll, in case down the track something happens and you will not be able to replace it.


To be honest clearance sales are usually the less popular stock. The most popular designs are often continued, sold out or there is just one or two rolls left. We have put nearly everything that has been offered up. If you find one colour more expensive than another then it is probably because of this reason.


This is really a tip if you are thinking about buying from our clearance sale. We import in bulk, that means some of these sale items are already in stock.  We were unprepared for this sudden and fabulous offer from our manufactures, so some of these products may take up to two weeks to arrive. Please factor that in to your consideration when buying.


During a genuine clearance sale, items are on a first come first served basis. While we endeavour to cater to everybody (and you know we personally email and reply to every single enquiry) there will be times when the item may sell out. If you love it buy it. We don’t have samples for every item on sale but we do have a lot.


If your not sure, then ask. We would rather answer hundreds of questions that have somebody not fully happy with their product.


Get it up as quickly as possible. Last week a woman called me. She had bought wallpaper from us a year prior and had only just got around to putting it up. She had actually miscalculated and was a roll short. By the time she called me the wallpaper had been discontinued and she didn’t have enough. Sometimes I can find some at a store overseas (as most distributorship’s have to buy in bulk) but in this case I was unable to source any more.

I hope these tips make it a little easier when choosing your clearance wallpapers.
