Will the images of doors, windows, or other obstructions be printed on my Wall Covering?

No. The images of doors, windows, or other obstructions will NOT be printed on your Wall Covering. They are only a designing aid to help you avoid placing critical design elements behind an obstruction.

 

Why did I receive a warning that “the printed image may look pixelated”?

 

Image files vary in terms of its number of pixels (similar to a digital camera). Increasing the image scale too much will make it pixelated (blurred). The warning is to inform you that the image has been scaled to a point that pixelation may be noticeable.
