Flaking Edges – Not Quite a Flaw of the Day

Digital Image Digital Image Can you see the flaky-looking bits at the right edge of this strip of wallpaper? This is not uncommon, and is probably not an actual flaw, but, gee, I sure wish manufacturers would be more careful in their production process.

These are little bits of paper that are left after the machine cuts the bolts. They do cause a problem, because they can prevent a seam from butting up perfectly, and because they fall off and can cause bumps under the paper (note the flake on the backing in the first photo). And because it’s a danged pain and takes a lot of time to sand them off (my black sanding sponge is visible in the second photo).
