1.

Lay the screen on a table. If the screen has an inside ledge for the paper to sit in, cut Laminated Paper a little shorter (1/32" - 1/16") within the ledge so that there is a room to expand for the paper.


2.

Apply double sided tape on the bottom rail, and all the vertical frames and vertical kumiko (lattices). Do not peel off the backings yet.

3.

Lay Laminated Paper on the screen and position it. Use a few pieces of masking tape to keep the paper in place, if necessary. Peel off the backing only from the bottom rail. Press the paper lightly on the tape. (It is still possible to take Laminated Paper off to reposition at this point. If Basic, Kozo or Hi-tec Kozo Paper, it will not come off the tape, once it's attached.) Keep the paper rolled up at the bottom.
