??? Hanging Horizontal Commercial Paper

I have a restaurant where I'm replacing a damaged section of a wall roughly 32 linear feet. They have supplied the replacement paper and it's a heavy commercial fabric type paper.

I have done wallpaper over the years but it's always been the traditional vertical strips.

Any tricks anyone can pass on to me would be great.

It's going over primed plywood. (I have other questions on that in another post)

Re: ??? Hanging Horizontal Commercial Paper

To answer both posts. Only use a primer designed for wallcovering, it is different.

Horizontal hanging is called railroading. A 32' sheet will be quite heavy, so get a help, would not recommend seaming it as it will more than likely shade (look like a different color at seam). Also if you don't have experience hanging fabric, let someone who has do it. Fabric is a different ball game and is expensive to replace if not done properly. No offense, but not recommended for a handyman.
