Defect of the Day – Embossing Machine Skipped a Beat


I don’t think I’ve ever had this happen before. …. The wallpaper factory was busy printing its vinyl wallpaper, and somewhere along the line, the embossing machine failed to heat/press the textured design into the material.

Look at the photos carefully, and you can see that one side of the material is textured, and one side is flat and smooth.

We were lucky … out of eight bolts, only one had this defect. Yet it was enough to ruin two full strips – and make us stress as to whether or not we would have enough paper to finish the job.

The manufacturer is York Wall.
