WASHABLE WOVEN WALLPAPER
Media concerned : Classic Wallpaper

Attention: this type of wallpaper is to be reserved for so-called "dry" rooms such as a bedroom, a living room or a hallway.


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.
If you have any doubt or a quality/SAV request, please send an e-mail to our customer service department: serviceclient@paper-mint.fr

Characteristics :

Ecological paper
It is composed of cellulose and polyester. Printed with Latex inks (water-based), it guarantee a healthy interior without pollutants.

Washable
Classic Wallpaper is washable with a sponge and clear water.

The surface

Wallpaper adhesives only adhere to porous substrates, preferably prepared with an undercoat or old paint.

Gluing
Apply non-woven paper glue to the paper only; you can also pre-paste your wall the day before wallpapering.

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.

Rolls
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.).


Installation
Prepare the glue (for woven or traditional 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 pasting brush, apply the glue on the back of the wallpaper, on half a strip to start with. Fold the end of the strip in the middle, glue against glue, taking care not to crush the fold formed. Carry out the same operation for the second half of the wallpaper (remember to clean your table between gluing if necessary).

Leave the paper to soak for 5 minutes to avoid blistering (the thicker the paper, the longer the soaking time). You can also place the strip in a plastic bag while it is soaking to prevent it from drying too quickly.

Unfold the first half of the strip and position it at the top of the wall, keeping a 5 cm margin in height to prevent any differences in height.

Adjust the strip while leaving the lower part of the strip folded on itself, 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 stuck to the support.

Unfold the second half of the strip, adjust it and then roll it up again.

Then repeat the different steps with the following strips.

Cut out excess paper with a ruler and a cutter once the glue is dry (about 24 hours).
