The Paper-Hangings product line is for professional paperhangers working with traditional wallpapers such as screenprints, blockprints, and European machine prints.
Paper-Hangings fills a need in the wallcoverings industry - we provide specialized products for the high-end residential market.
1. Terry Cloth Hand Towels:
After many moons of searching, we've located what we believe to be the best hand towels around! These 12" x 12" soft white towels are the perfect size and have all the properties that paperhangers like: absorbency, balanced texture, and strength, at a reasonable cost. We sell these in a 5-pack at 7.50 per pack. Yes, we know that micro-fiber towels (sometimes known as"mifties") are popular. Yet, the texture of mifties can be a little off-putting, especially when wet. These bar towels have maximum absorbency and keep your hands dry and clean, as they should be. Best of all, they're so small, they fit into a pouch or apron easily, so they're always at hand!
2. 10-inch "Hammer Head" Broadknife:
The best trimming device I have found in over 35 years of paperhanging!
Firm where you need it to be, yet flexible if needed…and wide enough for long cuts.
Fits easily in your back pocket — always with you.
This is the real deal, solidly constructed with brass hammer head base from Hyde (Southbridge, Massachusetts).
For the price of $26.50.

3. Focusing Rail for Palm Lasers:
Everyone who has a laser NEEDS a focusing rail.
This nifty unit was developed for macro-photography; it allows a camera to slide down a rail to focus precisely on tiny objects; the aluminum cast alloy body has rack and pinion fine-tuning which saves your sanity by putting your laser line EXACTLY WHERE YOU WANT IT…..just think, no more "a little to the right…a little to the left…no, back to the right…no, back to the left…"
Once the beam is where you want it, a separate precision device (ok, a screw) locks it in place.
Can be adapted easily to a variety of laser poles and mounts.
and all for the price of 26.50!
OK, the topic for the day is GSM. GSM (sometimes rendered "GMS") stands for "grams per square meter", and measures the weight of paper. Read more...
