Absolutely not. Our stickers and wallpapers are made from a fabric with a removable pressure-sensitive adhesive on the back. It sticks very gently and peels off easily without damaging the wall or leaving any residue. It's perfect for tenants renting appartments/houses as the stickers don't damage the wall or leave any glue when removing.

Avoid as much as you can touching the glue of the decals or wallpapers

Yes, we do. However, we have some trouble printing full colour with a nice and consistent finish – it would often print some lines across the graphics that are slightly different tones. It's not high definition photo quality.
Light colours would not be a problem.
