WALLPAPER SYMBOLS GUIDE
What Are The Different Match Types?
Every wallpaper design is different. The right amount for your project depends on the
match type and the size of the repeat of the pattern.
The easiest wallpaper to hang—free match means no visible joins or seams,
no matter how you hang the strips. With hardly any chance of hanging it
wrong, you can expect to spend a lot less time and finish with a lot less waste.
Straight match means the left and right edge of one strip match—in a
straight horizontal line—with the left and right edge of next strip. Want to
check if the match is straight? Just layout two strips next to each other.
Offset match means the right edge of first strip only matches the edge of the next strip at a specified distance.
What Do The Symbols On The Label Mean?
Other Symbols on the label will relate to the following:
• How easy the products are to clean
• The method of application
• Hanging direction (for example ‘reverse hang alternate lengths’ is occasionally used to create a seamless effect on certain designs)
