In the top picture, you see a mark on the wallpaper, which is common with the first foot or so of paper as it comes off a new bolt. The second photo shows edges that got banged up during shipping. Sometimes these will flatten out as the paper dries, but other times I try to avoid using them.

The third picture shows a speck of black ink on the back of the wallpaper. I discarded this piece, because I feared the speck would show through the front side, especially once the paper was wet with paste. In the last photo, I am holding the paper up to the window, and you can definitely see the dot from the front side. Better to not risk using it.

These all reasons to purchase a little extra paper, so you can reject defective pieces, and still have enough to paper your room.
