“Wallpaper,” not “Paint”

Digital ImageI found this under the wallpaper I stripped off of a bathroom yesterday. It’s common for builders to write on the walls, to indicate where wallpaper is to go, so the painters know not to texture and/or paint the walls.

What’s different this time is that the contractor had a nice stamp printed with the word “wallpaper,” instead of just using a pencil, like most of them do.

What’s particularly pleasing is that the ink was compatible with the paper….. You see, many inks (among other substances) will bleed right through wallpapers, especially vinyl goods. That’s why contractors carry around lead pencils for when they have to write on a surface that will be papered or painted.
