Green Planet Print offers two types of wallpaper materials, the fabric peel and stick and pre-pasted paper. Both materials are easy to apply, but require slightly different steps to begin installation.
INSTALLATION: HOW TO
Prep your surface: the walls must be clean, free of debris, oil spots, dust, and moisture. Wallpaper works best on smooth walls. Avoid rough texture. Wait at least 4 weeks before applying to freshly painted walls. For pre-pasted paper, have some cloths and a large tray with water ready (tray, wide water bucket, tub
with 3-4" water filled, or water spray will work).
1. Familiarize with your wallpaper panels: lay them out and check numbering on the back, examine the pattern and notice overlaps. Overlap is between 0.3” - 1" on all panels' (but the first) left side. Additional tools to help you out are: level, paper smoother, ruler, cutter knife.
2. Check your ceiling line: if its not straight, it is recommended to overlap wallpaper at 1 - 2” at ceiling and at bottom edge, in case there are unforeseen deformities. Trim any excess with a knife. Follow the same procedure for each panel. *This should not be done on custom orders.
3. Begin hanging the fabric peel and stick wallpaper panels: go from left to right. Peel about 12" off backing, away from paper and apply. Begin at top and work your way down, carefully pulling the backing away. Firmly press wallpaper against the wall, smoothing out any wrinkles and bubbles. Carefully reposition if needed, do not create folds. Stick in a straight vertical line.
- For pre-pasted paper, submerge wallpaper panel in water for about 20 seconds, design inwards, to activate the glue. Take the panel out, lay on floor design down, and fold each edge up to the middle (book fold). Wait 1 minute. For extra stickiness, apply water to the wall with spray or sponge, as well.
4. Hang the second wallpaper panel: apply over the first panel at about 0.5". (before sticking, check the match). Repeat the same procedure with all panels. Be sure to apply panels in numerical order, as indicated on backing.
5. Use hands or plastic smoother to push away any air bubbles. Trim off any excess material, such as at ceiling or baseboard with a straight edge and sharp razor knife. 6. Our wallpaper can be removed with water and a gentle peel. Note that after a few years, the wallpaper may develop a tighter grip.
