The wall bracket

- For the installation of all types of wallpaper, the quality of the support is essential, it must be smooth, clean, healthy and dry.

The glue

- The papers to be glued are of 2 types:

o Traditional wallpapers

o Non-woven wallpapers

Make sure you get one glue for each type of paper and follow the instructions of each manufacturer.

The positioning of the sheets

The sheets supplied by PaperMint are cut to the length you ordered and are numbered, use the supplied installation plan to find your way around.

When starting the installation, the first strip must be straight, if necessary draw markings on the wall, remember to be square and help yourself if necessary with the level and/or plumb bob.
If your starting angle is not straight, compensate for the false squareness by shifting the paper (on the wall in return for the angle), you will cut the paper that overflows at the end of the installation, you will have taken care not to glue the projecting paper in order to better remove it after the cut.
If your ceiling is not straight, proceed in the same way by overflowing the strip upwards, but always taking care not to glue the overflowing paper.
Lay the following strips, adjusting to the first strip and its pattern.

Smoothing of the sheets

Using a brush (or spatula), smooth the laid strip from the center to the outside, in order to drive out air bubbles while avoiding folds and ensure a perfect installation.

The joints

PaperMint papers are designed to be placed edge to edge, make sure that the sets are well connected. Any gaps can be corrected by playing on the positioning of the paper during installation or by using the roller, which crushes the joints and adjusts them while ensuring a good grip on the glue. In all cases, use the roller to ensure that the glue is firmly attached to the joint.
