Important: check your decor before installation
The PaperMint teams check your order with the utmost attention before shipping. Nevertheless, in order to avoid any possible mistake, we advise you to check your decor before installation.
The implementation, by you or the installer, engages your responsibility with regard to these products.
Manufacturing tolerances are 1/1000, i.e. 1 mm per metre. This type of deviation is imperceptible if the strips are correctly centred, so we advise you to check this point before gluing.

The material for laying Fiber Glass wallpaper
Composition and characteristics :
Fiber Glass paper is a mix between fiberglass and non-woven fabric, classified fire retardant Bs1d0.
Water resistant, it is rot-proof but not waterproof.
Fiber Glass is suitable for damp rooms, respecting the technical rules for laying and preparation of the substrate, in particular :
- laying on water-repellent plasterboard or tiles
- sealant to be applied to the substrate beforehand
- laying with non-woven paper glue
- silicone coupling
Printed with Latex inks (water-based), the Fiber Glass paper guarantee a healthy interior without pollutants.
The Fiber Glass paper is washable with a sponge and clear water.
Wallpaper adhesives only adhere to porous substrates, preferably prepared with an undercoat or old paint.
Kitchen splashback: we recommend the application of a glass or plexiglass plate behind a hob or even behind a sink, depending on the conditions of use.
Bathroom, hammam (or any place in which heavy run-off can occur): Fiber Glass paper is not intended to ensure watertightness, a layer of polyester resin can nevertheless be applied as a top coat.
Apply non-woven paper glue to the wall only.
Quick and easy to apply
Laying edge to edge, does not shrink when drying (high stability).
However, avoid laying the wallpaper in temperatures above 25°C.
Our papers are covering, but it is better to lay on a painted wall in a plain way without any marks.
Preparation and control of the strips before installation
Pre-cut strips ready to install
These strips are cut and connected to the dimensions indicated and in the quantities provided on your order.
They are generally classified in order (reference of the strips on the back or bottom according to production for non-repetitive patterns or special compositions) and packaged in a single roll.
Before you start laying: check that you have all the strips, that the joints are correct, that the height and other aspects (paper, colours, etc.) are in accordance with your request.
Paper from rolls, whatever its length, requires preparation.
It is necessary to cut strips adapted to the wall and to manage the connection of the pattern between each strip before installation.
Before you start laying: check that the rolls comply with your requirements (length, width, pattern, colour, type of paper, etc.).
Prepare the glue (for non-woven paper) in accordance with the dosage and the activation time of the glue, generally indicated on the manufacturer's jar.
Make sure that the strips are well centred on the wall, do not start with a whole strip if you need to have a small strip at the end of the wall; it is better to distribute the width to be covered between the first and last strip in order to have a more balanced decoration.
We recommend starting with the second strip for your panel.
Using the plumb line or spirit level, determine the vertical for the first strip, avoiding the angle of the wall if there is one, as it may not be perfectly straight.
We recommend marking marks with a pencil to ensure the verticality of the first strip, but these marks can be seen through the transparency; avoid thick or greasy leads and check any marks before installation to erase them if necessary.
Using the glue brush, apply the glue to the wall only.
Lay your first strip with a 5 cm margin in height to prevent any differences in the height of the wall.
Adjust the strip, and roll it up using the brush or the flat of your hand: rolling up consists of driving the air bubbles from the center to the edges and obtaining a strip that is perfectly glued to the substrate.
Then repeat the different steps with the following strips.
Cut out excess paper with a ruler and a cutter once the glue has dried (about 24 hours).
