Welcome to QEP‎ > ‎



Q. Where can I buy your decorative wallpaper borders?

A. We now offer select home decor borders for sale directly to the public in 5-yard bolts on eBay or on our ecommerce site.

We offer wholesale amounts to the trade:  hospitality, healthcare, RV/housing manufacturers, contractors, and interior design firms. Our minimum order is just 200 yards (forty 5-yard bolts or four 50-yard bulk rolls-- great for commercial interiors and boutique retailers). Contact our main office (574-294-6943 M-Th 9a-4p EST) or info(at)qepdesign.com for more details.


Q. What is the environmental impact of your products?
A. QEP manufactures all our products made-to-order. In this way we never use more material than we need to fill the order. This cuts out a good deal of waste resulting from overstock.

QEP offers an archival quality, acid-free paper substrate which can be recycled. We recycle paper and cardboard waste. We also recycle waste components from our equipment where applicable.


Q. How long does the design process take?
A. Design times vary. The best thing to do is to contact QEP’s creative team directly and schedule a consultation.

Q. What sort of fees do you charge for design services?
A. Based on the quality and amount of customization we offer, our fee schedule is very affordable. Most design fees will be offset by the first production order. Highly customized, low volume projects may be subject to additional studio fees. High volume customers may have studio fees waived. Please contact us directly for further details.

Q. How do I buy borders and art prints from QEP?
A. We currently accept valid checks, money orders, and PayPal. Any order for less than 200 yards must be pre-paid.  All prices are quoted in US dollars.  Contact our office manager for details.  Call ahead before faxing rush orders. 

Prices for custom designs vary greatly by product width, substrate, and level of customization.  Please contact our design studio for a free consultation.

Q. How do you ship your products?
A. We ship F.O.B. by arrangement to the U.S. and Canada.  Shipping fees vary by carrier. Restrictions by weight and size apply.

Q. What is the size of a minimum order? How much material do I have to order at once?
A. Certain select patterns are available in 5-yard bolts. Check us out on eBay. Wholesale/commercial orders:  you must order 200 yards (roughly 183m) or more per pattern. That is just forty 5-yard bolts or four 50-yard rolls.

Our minimum order for art prints varies by width of material. Please contact us directly for specific details.

Our minimum order for pressure-sensitive seam tape varies by width, but will be no less than 50 yards per pattern. Commercial inquires only, please.

Q. What are your lead times for production?
A. Once you’ve finalized a pattern, we can usually process your production order withing five working days. Additional packaging, custom designs, shipping and other logistical considerations may add to lead time.

Q. Do you sell your products to-the-trade or retail?

Q. Do you stock any finished goods?
A. Almost everything we do is print-to-order. We do stock a few select patterns for direct, invididual sale. Check us out on Facebook and eBay. We now have an ONLINE STORE . With our digital system, we eliminate pattern obsolescence. That means our designs do not become unavailable.

We encourage retailers, wholesalers and distributors to stock custom designs.
