Easy Installation Of Your Custom Wallpaper
Wallpaper Installation Guide
Preparation – Make sure that the bare wall is sound, clean and dry. Remove all loose paint, plaster or old paper and fill all holes and cracks with filler, smoothing down the surface when it is set.
“Size” The Wall – Prior to wallpapering it’s a good idea to “size” the wall as this seals porous surfaces to prevent the paste from drying too fast and it also aids slip and slide when papering. Beeline Primer Sealer is a highly recommended wallpaper “size” product as it does all of the above and also helps reduce seam splits, raised edges and bubbling of wallpaper.
Start Line – Few walls are truly square or perfectly vertical. To overcome this, use a plumb line or spirit level and draw a vertical pencil line from ceiling to floor at a set distance from the left hand edge of your wall. This start line measurement will be shown in the printed installation instructions that come with your custom printed wallpaper order.
Wallpaper Panels – Your wallpaper mural is split into the minimum number of panels possible to minimise the number of joins. This means panel widths can be between 800mm to 1200mm wide, dependant on the size of the wall.
An extra bleed of 100mm is added to the far left and far right panels and to the top and bottom of each panel.
Note that each panel is labelled at the top – Panel A, Panel B, Panel C, Panel D etc.
Helper – it may be helpful to have two people install your custom printed wallpaper.
