Wallpaper

Please read these instructions carefully before hanging your wallpaper.

1. Inspect Each Roll

Before cutting and hanging this wallpaper, ensure that all rolls are in good condition, have no shade variation and that no other faults are present. Please ensure that there are enough rolls to complete the job.

Do not assume that the wallpaper will come o the roll the correct way up. Always refer to the pattern book or check with the retailer.

Examination before hanging is the buyer’s responsibility. No claim can be accepted for hanging incorrect wallpaper or after wallpapers have been cut and hung showing defects which were apparent at the time of hanging. 

2. Preparation

Walls should be clean, dry and even.
Remove any old wallcoverings and loose paint and scrape of powdery, flaky surfaces.
Roughen painted surfaces with sandpaper. Absorbent surfaces should be prepared with an oil based primer ensuring it dries completely before continuing.
New plaster should be allowed to dry out completely. 

3. Pasting and Hanging

This is a ‘paste the wall product’. The decorator should paste the wall and not the back of the wallpaper.

A premium quality tub adhesive, or an equivalent good quality pH neutral, solvent-free, fungicide protected, light grade adhesive should be used.

DO NOT USE SELF-MIX ADHESIVES. ALL PURPOSE AND HEAVY DUTY PASTES ARE NOT SUITABLE.

Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang 1 length at a time, to an area slightly wider than the width of the roll.

But joins and use a decorator’s brush to smooth down the wallcovering, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles. NB. If this is a flocked wallcovering, use only a clean, soft roller, NOT a decorator’s brush.

Avoid squeezing paste out of joins and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller.

No paste should be allowed to come into contact with the surface of the paper and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst handling the wallpaper.

Paste will damage the surface, particularly flocked areas. LEIGH BAGLEY cannot accept responsibility for marks or damage caused by paste. Should any paste have been allowed to come into contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged off whilst moist, using a clean, damp sponge.

Trim top and bottom with a sharp knife or scissors. Ensure wallcovering is firmly adhered as, in the event of fire, loose wallpapers can contribute to the hazard.

After hanging 2 or 3 lengths, inspect the result to ensure that no shading or other faults are present. No claim for hanging costs can be accepted once more than one roll has been hung.

Fabric

We recommend that our fabrics are dry cleaned only or washed on a delicate wash cycle at home. As with all dyed fabrics there could be residual excess dye left in the fabric. This can cause staining to the item itself or to other items in a wash. We are happy to provide more specific instructions and to recommend post­treatment finishes such as Teflon coat or Fire Retardant coat where necessary.

The dyes we use are lightfast and permanent. The prints are steamed to fix the dyes and washed before we send them to you. We strongly recommend that printed fabrics used for blinds or curtains are fully lined with a black out fabric. We do not recommend that our fabric products be displayed in South or West facing windows or in direct sunlight.

Prints

  • Please open the packaging very carefully and inspect the rolled print for any signs of transit damage as soon as it arrives. If for any reason the package has been damaged in transit please email us as soon as possible. 
  • We would advise you to not unroll the print - whilst we appreciate your excitement at seeing your purchase you might accidentally crease or damage the paper which is irreversible.  
  • We would recommend you view the print for the first time at your chosen framers. They will have the space and expertise in handling large delicate fine art prints.
  • Please hang your print behind glass and out of direct sunlight.
