Paper Based Wallpapers
Our wallpapers are made from sustainably sourced timber, with a claycoat sealer and waterbased inks. As with with all wallpapers of the this type (non vinyl) the paper becomes "soft" when wet with wallpaper adhesive so care is required.
Remember these are hand printed papers, so there will be some natural variation in the screening, it is the nature of the product. We do endeavour for consistency so please check each roll upon receipt. Your order will all be from the same batch and all the rolls from a batch will have the same paper and ink, they will match.
Please check for any visual difference that you are unhappy with an contact us prior to cutting or installing. We will not accept liability once the product is on the wall.
There is no replacement for experience, if you can we recommend the use of a qualified and experienced tradesperson. If you encounter any problems during hanging stop immediately and contact us or your supplier, we cannot accept liability for rehanging costs after the first roll.
Our paper is wipeable with a clean damp cloth or sponge, do not rub excessively or spot clean. A mild soap or detergent may be used.

Hanging Instructions
Surface preparation prior to installing the paper is very important. Any variation in surface may show through the paper.
Any old surfaces need to be made good. Walls need to be clean, dry and sound. Sanding and filling may be required.
Existing coverings should be stripped, surfaces washed (with sugar soap) and sized.
New surfaces sealed with waterbased wallboard sealer, and sized.
Any colour variation to the existing wall should either be painted over or lined.
We recommended cross lining walls with lining paper for the best results.
Our papers are supplied trimmed, ready for hanging.
Ensure you mix waterbase paste to the manufacturers directions, avoiding lumps.
Take your time and plan ahead.
Remove any electrical face plates, light fittings etc after turning off the power.
Begin with a plumbline, working away from the light.
Ensure the wall size is dry. Check the drop lengths and pattern repeats, allowing approx 50mm top and bottom for trimming.
Apply paste to back of paper and book for 5min, only work 1 paper ahead. Paste liberally and especially at the edges. Butt the joins, they should  not overlap, gently sliding the paper into the join.
We don't recommend using a seam roller. If you choose to use one ensure careful use, so not to damage the surface of the paper. Use plain paper to protect the surface of the Wallpaper as you use the seam roller.
Brush the paper smooth and wipe any excess paste with a clean damp cloth or sponge.  Paste left on the surface of the paper may cause damage.
A coloured paste (which dries clear, such as 'So Ezy' can help applied to the wall at the joins so you can ensure complete coverage.
Trimming or cutting should be done with a sharp blade (9mm snap-off cutter) and the use of a steel edge, a 100 - 150mm joint knife or scraper is ideal.
With dark papers we suggest a thin water colour paint to tint the paper edges, once the paper is dry use a small brush and wipe any excess off immediately.
Do not  attempt to fast dry the paper, avoid direct sunlight.
Allow to dry slowly and evenly.
