"Antebellum Revival"

"Fine Print worked wonders on a pre-Civil War era country home that was being renovated under the strict observation of local housing authorities. It was so old and neglected that the wallpaper had already peeled off, leaving only tiny fragments which we sent for color matching. The only reference we had for the actual design was an old black and white photo of the interior, but apparently this was enough to create a faithful replica. Their ability to match historical accuracy and color from such limited resources was nothing short of phenomenal."

Emily Thompson from Tulsa, OK


"New Life for Gilded Age Hotel"

"During the restoration of a prewar hotel we were facing the challenge of finding patterns to match the few scraps we had left of the old wallpaper. The service we received from Fine Print was beyond anything we had expected. They handled all of our concerns with ease and were able to recreate all three patterns flawlessly. We passed our heritage inspection with flying colors and the hotel was able to reopen on schedule. There is no way we could have accomplished this on our own. Truly grateful for Joseph, Steven and the amazing team at Fine Print. "

Carl Johnson from Charleston, SC
