In order to reduce waste our PRIMA paper comes in custom panels created based on the height of the space you need to cover. Panels are created to side match so you dont have to worry about matching up our fairly large repeats. All are 2 feet wide with custom lengths in 1 foot increments and charged by the square foot. Panels side match from top unless other-wise specified.
Prima Wallpaper Installation Guide
Eskayel highly recommends consultation with a professional paperhanger prior to installation.
These instructions are for our PRIMA standard wallpaper only.
- Wall should be prepped to a smooth, clean, and dry surface prior to installation. Wallcovering will not hide wall flaws such as: nail holes, bumps, or dirt.
- Primer sealer should be used on unpainted drywall. Use acrylic wallcovering primers: Professional Ultra Prime (PRO-977), Golden Harvest White Bite, or Allpro Ultra Prep 685. Priming provides a sound surface that wallcovering will adhere to.
It is recommended to strip down previous layer(s) of wallcovering. The wallcovering may seem to be firmly adhered to
the wall, but the addition of another layer can cause adhesion failure.
- Prime over glossy paint with one of the above mentioned primers.
- Clear adhesives such as Professional Ultra Premium Heavy Duty Clear Strippable (PRO-880), Golden Harvest GH-34 Clear Stripable, and Allpro Pro-Duty 3400 provide good adhesion and allow for easier stripping when the wall covering is to be removed or replaced.
- Pastes such as Professional Heavy Duty Clear PRO-838 or Allpro Clear Hang 610 have a more aggressive adhesion and should be used for more permanent applications.
- Apply a coat of the adhesive using a 1/2″ nap paint roller. Book for 10 minutes.
- Do not use tape on imaged surface.
- table trim selvage at edge of printed area.
- Align top and adjoining edges. Smooth panels into place with a smoothing brush, starting at the center of the panel working towards the edges.
- Use a plastic smoother to push air pockets to the edges.
- Remove any and all excess paste from the paper using a lightly damp rag or sponge. Do not use a fully damp sponge as slight running may occur in heavy coverage areas. If any paste is left to dry, flaking may occur which can lead to spots from ink being pulled from the paper.
- Overlapping the seams is not recommended.
