Paper-Backed Solid Vinyl Paper = Poor Seams

Digital ImageAnother of my many reasons to stay away from “pre-pasted, paper-backed solid vinyl” wallpapers. (Read my previous post re peeling and curling.) This seam isn’t bad, but it’s not as nice and flat as a seam on a good quality paper wallpaper.

These goods are made by laminating thick sheet of vinyl (plastic) onto a gritty manila-type paper backing. The materials are quite disparate for a good union, in my opinion, and the end product is too thick to lie tight against a wall.

This particular brand (Norwall), at $12 a single roll, is not just inexpensive – it’s plain outright cheap. Inexpensive might be good, but cheap rarely is.
