Paperhanging is a very old and venerable profession; as a specialized trade, paperhanging probably started in England in the 19th Century.
There are books from that era, including “The Paperhanger’s Companion,” carefully describing techniques considered modern in their day.
Given the nearly countless types of materials and adhesives available, such online resources are invaluable in helping keep up on the latest trends and in solving problems with unfamiliar products. However, the best resources are decades of hands-on experience and an open mind.
As a 3rd generation paperhanger I grew up with a wide range of family and friends in the trade whose experiences and high standards all filtered down to me. I’m a dedicated wallpaper installation professional and my testimonials page offers a glimpse of what my clients think of me and my work.
