How to Install our prepasted wallpaper?

How to Install our prepasted wallpaper?

1. Get ready 

TOOLS NEEDED
  • Partner in crime ;)
  • Measuring tape
  • Snap off blade cutter
  • Level
  • Water vaporizer or thick paint roller
  • Smoothing brush or plastic smoother
  • Drop cloth or plastic sheet
  • Bucket of clean water
  • Sponge
PREPARE YOUR WALL
  • Your wall needs to be smooth, clean and dust free. 
  • Patch or sand any damaged areas of the wall (sharp edges might pierce or tear the paper)
  • Take off any electrical outlet
  • For best results, surface must be a solid surface painted in light colour or primed the same way as if you would normally paint it.
  • If your wall is freshly painted, wait a minimum of 1 week for the paint to dry completely. Else in may lead to air bubbles at the contact of humidity and poor adhesion on the wall.
PREPARE YOUR WALLPAPER
  • Start by measuring the height of your wall. Installation goes from left to right. Panel #1 being the first on the left.
  • Unroll and cut your first panel from the roll at least 2" at 4" longer that what you need to horizontally. Often, the panels are pre-cut in our Atelier. In this case, the bottom of each panel has a white margin and the top of the panel as no margin. 

2. Start Hanging

  • Place the panel face down on a plastic and generously vaporize water or apply water with a thick paint roller. 
  • Fold the panel glue over glue (fig 1). Wait for 3 to 5 minutes to activate the glue (called booking).
  • Unfold the panel (fig 2) and apply it to the wall vertically levelled and remove the air bubbles and water using a smoothing brush. Keep in mind that some textures have an orientation to respect. 
  • Repeat until done. 
  • Trim excess paper along the ceiling and baseboard with a sharp snap off blade knife. If necessary, re-mist the areas that are dried off. Clean with clean water and a sponge.

* (Fig 3) Only for texture wallpaper: Often, there is a direction for the wallpaper to look realistic. Always keep the up side up. Up is written at the start of each roll. Each panel must be installed butt joint. 

* (Fig 4) Only for photography wallpaper: Follow the number panel and overlap 1/4" inch
