If I lived in a rental and wanted to put it on the wall, could I be assured it wouldn't rip of paint?

Maybe you can try it in a small area in the closet to see what it would do. I think you could though. I used mine that I bought and put it on the inside of my kitchen cabinet door. I use one for reminders and another for my shopping list. I take a photo of my list with my phone. i love the stuff.

Absolutely would not rip off paint.. if your walls are not extremely flat it will not affix to them.. tap won't work either.. well it will keep it up there but it would be bumpy. The paper does not hold chalk well either. I recommend buying the paint on. .. a little more work but you can always scrape off and repain… see more Absolutely would not rip off paint.. if your walls are not extremely flat it will not affix to them.. tap won't work either.. well it will keep it up there but it would be bumpy.

Have no worries: the glue in the back is really mild, it's in fact a peel on peel off. If your walls are old with air bubbles then I wouldn't do it, but otherwise go ahead, they designed this basically to be able to have an impromptu blackboard that can be removed and repositioned.

My experience with this chalkboard contact paper is that I could easily reposition it after custom cutting it to the size needed. My application was on a painted pantry door which has a smooth surface. I am confident that if I need to remove it, it would come off cleanly w/o leaving any marks.

The sticky backing is not like regular contact paper, I found it more user friendly and forgiving. Also I recommend using ONLY liquid chalk markers (NOT REGULAR CHALK) on this surface. see less My experience with this chalkboard contact paper is that I could easily reposition it after custom cutting it to the size needed.

So far so good on my walls, I have had it for a few month and moved from one wall to another.
and the paint didn't rip.

I'm not sure that it would rip off paint, but I will say that if you're wanting to put it on the wall to use as a chalkboard, I would find an alternative. It's very hard to get chalk to show up well on this contact paper and if you try to erase it once it does show up, it leaves permanent marks.

The adhesive on the contact paper will take paint off so I wouldn't adhere directly to the wall in a rental. Consider sticking to plywood, framing and hanging on the wall.

It is contact paper, so I would think it would adhere to the wall and possibly peel the paint when removed. I am using it on my cinder block wall in my classroom.

I'd love to help you out, but, what do you mean, "rip of paint"?
