vinyl wall mural help plz

Evening all, I'm looking to do a wall mural in daughters bedroom, It will be a digital print not cut vinyl and was hoping somebody could suggest a vinyl which will adhere to an emulsioned plastered wall? Couple of other questions....would it be best to be laminated and applied without application paper or not laminated but use application paper? Also, I rarely do large prints so am curious on your thoughts about the quality of an enlarged jpeg photo, what sort of dpi are we talking or would the jpeg be better off being converted to a different format? Competent in corel x3 so no probs doing either or!. I know your all helpful guys and gals in here so thanks for any forthcoming advice. :D

You can use vinyl, I have done a few of these and overlamed with a textured lam, or you could get some digital wallpaper. These come flat and textured and can be hung as normal wallpaper. As for the artwork, if you make it 100% size at 72dpi and vew it 100% on screen if you are happy with the screen output this will generaly print the same.

It will look best with mat lamination rather than gloss.
