About Contact Papers

Contact paper has come a long way from the shiny shelf lining paper of old. Now you can do so much more with this versatile self-stick paper. Decorative versions are always handy, whether you still do need to line some shelves or you want to become a little more crafty with it. The patterns and colors available are endless. You can embellish picture frames, cover scarred furniture, or even make book covers with all of the different contact papers available. A newer version uses a chalkboard finish. This makes an incredibly easy way to hang up a removable chalk surface for kids, kitchens, or just about any other need. If you want to make a permanent area to use chalk, you can secure the paper to the wall or to a sheet of plywood, and then put up a frame around the area. For temporary areas, simply stick the paper anywhere and remove it when you are finished. With the vast inventory on eBay, you can find contact paper for literally any project that you may have, either at home or at work.
