Just got a bunch of pieces of beautiful wallpaper back from the laser cutter. They do my skyline cut for me so I don’t die of finger blisters.
I used to hand cut the skyline myself. There are a few originals out there that were done by hand. But it takes so long to do one cut that working a full day, I wouldn’t be able to make more than 2 finished pieces. Plus; what if I make a mistake, or slip and slice off half of the Hancock Tower? Disaster.
And seriously. The blisters.
This is much better. I cut the wallpaper down to the exact size I want and give it to these awesome guys in north east Mass who run the cutters at Boston Lasers. I love the intricacy and detail that is allowed with laser cutting.

I’ve been collecting all kinds of wallpaper for years now. I’m completely obsessed with the printing processes, designs and patterning and even though I put the salvaged wallpaper samples to good use, I have to fight the urge to just hoard all of the pretty for myself and never share!
I just sent a huge pile of wallpaper out to the laser cutter and in a week I’ll get back a few hundred Boston skylines in crazy colors and patterns. Here’s what happens when I get them back:
