Sealing the Paper
We do not offer to seal our murals, however, a sealer or coating may typically be applied after the installation has cured.
Non-Type II murals may have a protective coating or liquid laminate applied to protect it and extend life. Always pretest laminates prior to use for compatibility. Pressure-sensitive laminates are not recommended.
Customers must inspect wallcoverings within 30 days of receipt of package to ensure quality and quantity. No claims will be accepted for inadequate or faulty installation based on these instructions, nor will claims be accepted for cut or installed wallpaper.
