This is the exact width the wallpaper will be once you’ve trimmed off the selvage (which is like a printed hem or label, with guide marks for lining up each new panel. The selvage also has the wallpaper name on it. You must cut off the selvage in order to hang it).
The term match refers to how you align the wallpaper with each new strip.
For example, if you have a wallpaper that is one solid color without any patterns, it really doesn’t matter how the strips of wallpaper align. However, take the strawberries pattern, you have to pay attention to each strip to make sure that the strawberries at the end of one strip lines up with the other half of the strawberries on the next strip you apply.
All wallpaper comes with a selvage that must be trimmed before installing it. Selvage edges provide a space for the trim/join mark, which allows the installer to quickly determine the pattern repeat and match.Most knowledgeable and experienced installers prefer to trim their own selvage edges.
