To Our Customers:

Paper-Hangings sells premium paperhanging supplies, in any quantity, by mail order, to be paid by check or money order, 30 days net. Sales tax is collected where appropriate. We do not use credit cards.

The types and availability of lining papers have changed. Our commitment to our customers is that we will continue to offer only the best paper liners. By "best" we mean: cost-effective, highly absorbent, 100% papers which contain no additives such as nonwoven, rayon, or polyester. So-called bridging liners have their place in the wallcovering industry but we do not sell those types. Bridging liner may be available in your local area at big-box stores or at Sherwin-Williams stores.

For more information about how liners work and why they are important, see our FAQ’s on the sidebar ———>>>

We have good supplies of three types of paper liner: AF-20, AF-40, and WS-30. Here are capsule definitions:

- WS-30 (whitestock) is our workhorse lining paper designed for everyday needs - an economical 100% recycled paper liner. It has excellent absorbency, expands about 1% and weighs around 120 grams per square meter (gsm). It's thick enough to soften a wall yet thin enough to handle easily on the table or pasting machine. WS-30 has no nonwoven content such as rayon or polyester and minimal additives for wet strength. WS-30 requires sharp cutting tools.

- AF-20 and AF-40 are acid free lining papers. They also weigh about 120 grams per square meter (gsm). The 20" width is convenient for small stairways, small rooms, and small paperhangers. This same acid free paper is also available in the larger 40" width. AF-20 and AF-40 are rag-based papers certified to be acid free by an independent testing lab (Integrated Paper Service). They have no nonwoven content. Acid free lining papers are appropriate whenever longevity is a factor: in historic houses under antique and reproduction wallpaper, or under very expensive wallpaper such as French or Chinese scenics, both of which are usually meant to be permanent installations.

Summing up:

WS-30, $8.95 per s/r. (discount of 10% for case of 48 s/r) 
AF-20 and AF-40, $19.45 per s/r. (discount of 10% on a case of 33 s/r)
