Could someone please tell me wheat term Americans use for 'contact paper' or 'sticky-back plastic'. Is it shelf-liner? I want to find kitschy sort of contact paper and I think that I can get more variety from America but I don't know what words to use when I'm googling it. Also, does anyone know of any good suppliers of this kind of thing?I want to cover and old suitcase with it. Thanks!!!!

We call it contact paper.  Smiley
Although i have heard some people call it shelf paper. But good luck about finding more variety here, the only kind i can find is the crappy stuff with ick floral print or weird plaids. You may want to go the mod podge route and use wrapping paper instead. Same effect, but more variety.
Hope that helps!
