General Hanging Instructions
  • Always make sure the wall you are hanging on has had all other wallcovering, wallplates and obstructions removed. Walls must be smooth, structurally sound, dry, and clean.
    Repair any holes and cracks, and sand smooth.
  • Make sure your hands and tools are always clean.
  • We highly recommend priming and lining walls before installing wallcovering.
  • Do not hang directly on an oil based primer.
  • Always use a new blade for each cut.
  • Always use non-stick white tape.
  • Use high quality clear hanging paste with “mildew system wallpaper adhesive.”
    Paste should not be watered down.
  • Always apply an even coat of paste to either the back of the wallcovering or directly on the wall.
    Never saturate the wallcovering with paste. Paste out toward edges.
  • Double cut installation is not mandatory. Installing method should be left up to your professional installer. For a list of professional installers near you please visit
  • It is very important not to crease the wallcovering. Avoid touching the face of the wallcovering.
  • Begin at the top left corner. Set top to hold while securing the corner edge.
    Smooth air bubbles out from top to bottom using a soft brush.
  • Do not stretch or overwork seams.
  • After installing a maximum of three panels, inspect application. If satisfactory, continue.
    If not, discontinue and contact Weitzner customer service at 888.609.5551.

The manufacturer assumes no responsibility for installation of material beyond three panels and will not be held responsible for labor under any circumstances.

Word fragments layered into a dreamlike collage show a softer side to the press in this non-woven material composed of recycled newspapers. Salago fiber adds texture to the all-over pattern and depth where it shows through as the ground.

Handle with care, please do not crease the wallcovering.

Prime and line walls before installing the wallcovering. It is necessary to use a new blade for each cut.

It is recommended to coat the wall with a generous amount of clear paste but do not over saturate. Once adhesive is applied it is imperative to install

quickly as the natural content of the product has a tendency to expand.

Make sure not to get any glue on the face of the wallcovering.

Lay wallcovering down with a soft brush. Continue to smooth with the brush to prevent puckering.

Finish the top and bottom of the wallcovering once adhered to the wall, by cutting off excess wallcovering when dried.


Please wipe with clean white damp cloth; do not rub.

Regular vacuuming with a soft brush attachment may be used to remove dust deposits.


Not guaranteed against fading or color change. Avoid direct or brilliantly reflected sunlight.

This product may not match up at the seams.
