Short tips; how to paste bespoke wallpaper.

BEFORE HANGING WALLPAPER

  • Make sure You measured the interior precisely
  • Determine your wallpaper, check if it is‘paste the paper’ or ‘paste the wall’.
  • Check if wallpaper panels are undamaged.
  • Check if you have enough wallpaper panels to complete the job
  • Add 10cm to your specific measurement (to allow for trimming).
  • All panels must be checked for shade variation and faults before hanging.
  • Please make sure the direction of the design is correct.
  • Check labelling to see if your paper panels have direction numbers.
  • Bespoke designed and hand printed multi panels will be numbered individualy.
  • Using a plumb line, draw a vertical line with a pencil down the wall you are going to start papering. This will ensure that your pattern will remain straight and avoid the pattern looking diagonal, especially on long walls.

HANGING WALLPAPER

  • Cut and hung only 1 length at a time.
  • Check which way up the design is before hanging.
  • Check which way up the design is before hanging.
  • Make sure You lay all panels from side to side to see how they match before pasting.
  • Make sure You do not crease the paper when folding panels.
  • While hanging the wallpaper panels make sure that joins are tightly butted and never overlap.
  • Prepare your wallpaper adhesive before pasting and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Any paste squeezed through the joins should be immediately wiped away with a damp, clean soft cloth.
  • TRIM THE WALLPAPER
  • Use the end of the brush’s bristles to gently tap the paper where the wall meets the ceiling and skirting.
  • To trim any excess paper, mark a line down the corner of the paper with the back of the scissors, ease the paper away from the wall and trim it with the scissors. Brush the paper back into place.

3. What means that wallpapers are hand screen printed?

Hand screen printed wallpaper is a wallpaper with a pattern applied by hand with special technique called silk screen printing. Many times we were asked what type of printer we use or what does it mean that our wallpapers are hand printed.

Hand screen printing is a time consuming process, known from ancient Japan. This is a technique of repetitive printing, using basic tools and power of our muscles. We use only one machine during wallpaper printing process: it is a special table with suction system, which prevent the wallpaper from moving during printing.

We print our patterns using screen with exposed pattern (special mesh with micro holes- pattern consist of open holes through which the paint passes onto wallpaper, and the rest is covered), special squeegee and paint. Paint is poured onto screen, which lays on piece of wallpaper roll. Than moving the squeegee through the surface of a screen we help paint to go through the pattern and settle down on paper. We have to repeat this process many times. How many it depends of the wallpaper length and numbers of colours in the pattern.

9. What does it mean that wallpaper might be customized?

Our collections come in set of selected seasonal colours, if you wish, we can customize the colour palette according to your needs. Colours on wallpaper divides in two groups – background colour – base colour which is always hand painted and colour(s) of hand screen printed pattern. Numbers of colours are presented in wallpaper specification.
Other custom feature is patterns repetition – for certain wall hangings the density of the pattern might be adjusted. The idea behind custom repeat is to maintain the balance between the pattern and the space of your interior.
