Every roll of Aimees killer wallpaper is hand screen printed with care on clay-coated paper in Aimee's USA workshop where all left over inks from the printing process are salvaged and reusednothing is wasted or washed down the drains.
Aimees wallpapers are manufactured with responsibly sourced fiber from suppliers that adhere to one of the globally recognized forestry or chain of custody programs such as the FSC, SFI, PEFC, and Canadian Standards Association. The papers are made with elemental chlorine free fiber from a both ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004 certified paper supply company that creates approximately 50% of its electricity by low-impact hydroelectric generators. 100% of the mills short paper fiber is reclaimed and used in the agricultural industry for nutrient rich compost or animal bedding.

How to Measure
Aimee recommends measuring with a yardstick or steel tape measure. Make your measurements in feet and round off to the next half-foot or foot. Measure the wall height from the floor to the ceiling, excluding any baseboards or moldings. Then measure the length of the wall without deducting for windows or doors (this will leave you extra wallpaper in case you may need it). Multiply the two measurements to find the surface area of the wall.
Single rolls of Aimee's wallpaper are 15 feet long, but widths vary from 27-28 inches. 1 roll covers about 30 square feet. To find the number of rolls needed to cover your wall, multiply the height and the width of the wall by rounding up each length to the nearest foot. Then divide by 30.
Example: For a wall that is 10 feet 6 inches high by 9 feet 4 inches long. Round up and multiply 11 feet by 10 feet to get 110 square feet. Divide 110 by 30 and you will get 3.6. In this case you will need 5 rolls.
If the number divides out to be .5 or above, you will need to add one more roll on to be safe. If you were to get 3.4, 4 rolls would be enough, but if you get 3.5 to 4.4, you will need 5 rolls.
How to Hang
Aimee recommends that a professional experienced in paper hanging install all wallpaper as she cannot be held responsible for improperly hung paper. Please note that Mylar papers can be scratched or dulled by wallpaper smoothing tools. To avoid damage, wrap tools in chamois, lubricate tools with glue, or smooth paper by hand.
