Does it matter if you damage the paint work as a result of sticking them? What do the stickers stick with?

P.S. dont just rip that bubbly wallpaper stuff off without considering what it may be hiding underneath ... remember stripping down our bathroom and the plastering literally came off with the wallpaper, had to have the whole room replastered xxx
Yeh woodchip in livingroom of this house,had to be replastered/skimmed or whatever,there was even wallpaper on ceiling,never do know what the walls are like underneath it.
Just get some double sided tape and try that rather than wall paper paste.

They come in all sorts of sizes and are like a sticky backed velcro.

normally the stickers have a piece of paper on to cover the stickyness, peel that off and it should reveal the stickyness to help you stick it on the wall :thumbsup:
ahhh im about to go b&q dunno what to get now!

can you not repaint where the sticker is going and stick the sticker onto wet wall??voila it will dry and stick at the same time??if thats ridiculous you better not all be laughing at me!!:P
Try copydex, that should stick it without damaging the wall when you want them back off. Should be able to get that next to the regular glues at b&q

Doesn't state the size on their website, don't suppose you could measure it for me?
put on rads or door, they are not meant to go over woodchipped walls
