A Folded Instruction Sheet Damages The Wallpaper

February 10, 2018


When I unrolled this wallpaper, I immediately noticed the deep creases on the back side. (In the photo, look to the right and left of the label.) The creases were visible on the front, too.

The creases were caused by an instruction sheet that had been tucked inside the bolt of wallpaper. That is pretty common. But the problem this time is that the paper had gotten wrinkled, and when it was pressed inside the roll of paper, the uneven surface pressed against the vinyl wallpaper caused creases.

These creases may or may not have flattened out once that paper was pasted and stuck to the wall. But, why chance it? I cut off an discarded the first 22″ or so from the bolt. The remaining paper was all in good condition.

Hiding The Manufacturer’s Name

This wallpaper was bought on-line from Walls Republic Wallcoverings. However, they are not the manufacturer of this paper. If you look at the bolt of paper on the bottom of the photo, you will see that Walls Republic has stuck their own label over the identifying information on the manufacturer’s label. The manufacturer’s actual label is revealed on the roll at the top of the photo.

A lot of retailers do this. It’s not a bad thing, but it is a little confusing.
