Do you mean ready pasted?

All the Decorators I know if presented with this stuff totally ignore it and just apply paste as usual. Cut 6 or 8 drops, paste them up and hang them over a door until needed.

Mmm. I had to Google to find it as I had never heard of it. However you are correct it is out there.

It seems that you just peel of a backing paper and hang it. If it's not correctly positioned you can evidently peel it off and reposition it. Sounds a decent idea but I see the range is very limited.

Not something I would use but that's not to say it's not good gear.

Edit. Found this. I would ditch the idea after seeing the bit in bold below.

Please note: This self-adhesive wallpaper is not recommended for use on textured walls, wallpaper, brickwork, unpainted drywall, sheetrock, plaster, non-stick paint or outdoor surfaces.

I saw someone doing this on a vlog in the USA and it looked so easy. I wasn't aware it was available here.

We used paste the wall wallpaper for a wall in a small room recently. Really simple. Less faffing. Worked really well.

Excuse my ignorance, but with all these restrictions, where could you actually use it?

I did see a picture where they showed it being used on staircase risers. Most weird.
