Order guide


-Verify pattern colors by ordering a sample before placing an order.

-All wallpapers are priced and packaged in double roll bolts. Order in double roll amounts.

-Average double roll bolts has 56 square feet. If the bolt is 20 1/2" wide x 33 feet length.

-Border rolls have 15 linear feet (5 yards) per roll/spool.

-Consider pattern repeat of borders and wallpaper when estimating rolls.

-The border spools do not match at the end of each roll you could lose up to the pattern repeat at the end of each roll/spool.

-Determine that border height will be appropriate for your area. The height of each border is indicated in the details area.

-We recommend ordering an extra roll for hanging mistakes or future wall damage.

Hanging Instructions & Tips

wall preparation


NEW DRYWALL

-Apply a wallcovering primer with a brush or roller.

-This provides a smooth even surface to adhere the wallpaper.

-Also, it will be easier to remove the wallcovering at a later date.

-Allow to dry thoroughly.


PAINTED WALLS

-Fill cracks or holes with spackling compound. When dry, sand any rough spots until smooth.

-Be sure to clean walls with a bleach or ammonia and water solution.

-Then, apply a wallcovering primer to the entire wall surface.


EXISTING WALLPAPER

-Remove old wallcoverings and sand smooth. Clean walls with a bleach or ammonia and water solution.

-Apply a primer to wall surface. *Note* Hanging over existing wallpaper is possible but not recommended.

-However, if you are going to go over the existing paper - use a wallcovering primer over the wall and see how it reacts -

      if it bubbles up after drying then it will need to be striped off the wall.

-If it is not bubbled - then you can hang over it with a vinyl over vinyl adhesive for existing vinyl wallcoverings.


For non vinyl existing papers you can hang with the prepasted paste on the back of the wallpaper or a clear adhesive -

       however, sizing over the existing wallpaper would help with grip and positioning.


If you are not sure if the existing wallpaper is a vinyl - play it safe by using the primer over the paper surface.

Use a pigmented (white) primer over an existing wallpaper if it is darker than the new wallpaper - It is possible for the old pattern to show through the new wallpaper if it is a light background.



*All walls should be sized to maximize slip. This allows for easier positioning of the wallpaper at it is being hung, and makes it easier to remove at a later date. Clean walls of dirt and grease. Grease spots can bleed through new wallcovering, a stain killer can be used over the greasy areas.



WALLPAPER HANGING INSTRUCTIONS


1 | Start project in an inconspicuous spot such as behind a door, in a corner, or next

to a window. Determine strip measurement and possible pattern placement on the

wall. If the paper has a pronounced pattern, plan to have an entire motif below the

final trimmed top edge for the most pleasing effect.


2| Cut strip to have small excess on top and bottom of strip.


3| Lay strip pattern side down on a flat surface. Brush water or activator

on prepasted paper or paste on unpasted paper on the back with a paint brush.



See photo 1



4| Fold paper from each end to center, paste side to paste side. This is a

booking process to activate the paste and to relax the wallpaper. Allow the

paper to set for a few minutes for the adhesive to activate



See photo 2



5| Unfold top portion of fold and position on the wall with level or plumb line.

Leaving a small excess at the top of strip to later trim. First and last strip on each

wall should have approx 1/4" to 1/2" inch lapping onto adjoining wall to hide

corner when leveling the first strip of the new wall.


6| After top portion of strip is level with excess at ceiling and lapped in corner.


7| Smooth out portion with a smoother or brush, from center toward the edges to remove air bubbles. Unfold

bottom portion of strip and repeat smoothing. If wrinkles occur, pull strip away from wall and rehang.



See photo 3



8| Trim along top & bottom of strip with straight edge and razor blade.



See photo 4



9| Clean strip with wet sponge. 


10| Determine pattern match for next strip. Cut strip and fit strip edges together without any

overlap or gap. Carefully match patterns at seam. Follow previous directions.


11| Allow wallpaper adhesive to set a minute, then roll seam with seam roller to ensure adhesion

and tight seam.

 

12| Before hanging the last strip on the wall measure the distance from the edge of the last strip's

edge to the corner (adding in the corner lap).




BORDER HANGING INSTRUCTIONS


1| Measure wall width corner to corner. Each border strip should extend to the full width

plus 1/2" to extend around corners onto adjoining walls.


2| Brush onto the back of the border (water on prepasted borders or brush paste on unpasted

borders). If the border is being applied over a vinyl wallpaper or other shiny surface - do

not wet border but use a vinyl over vinyl adhesive.


3| Fold border as shown back too back - allow time for paste to activate.



See photo 5



4| Hang border and lap onto next wall approx. 1/4" to hide corner. Smooth as you go.


5| Start new roll in corner matching pattern and positioning for the new wall. Clean with sponge and fresh water to remove excess paste.



HELPFUL TIPS



-Use a sharp razor blade. The snap off knifes are very convenient for keeping your blade sharp.


-On large repeat patterns work off of two different bolts of wallpaper to save paper from the repeat.


-Hang on room temperature walls. Temperature changes on walls can result in seam separation and other problems. Since the paper expands and contracts as it dries walls should be at a consistent temperature throughout the drying process.


-Save a sample and the pattern number with run/lot number of your wallpaper. These numbers are critical for later locating the pattern.
