Customers Are Talking About Roman

"PRO-880 adhesive is known as the 'magic paste'. Since we started using PRO-880 adhesive, our hanging problems have become a distant memory. Based on our many years of experience, we strongly recommend PRO-880 and PRO-990 Primer for hanging almost all types of wallcoverings; both products are clear winners among a host of products available on the market."
-India and Middle East

"With Romanʼs products, our Marketing & Sales program is to give paperhangers a sample and get them 'hooked'. When they come back, we can charge them anything we want."

"We thought we should buy locally-ʻitʼs only pasteʼ, so we tried a local supplier and we were forced back to Roman. The paperhangers wouldnʼt tolerate the change. I donʼt want to upset them ever again."

"Every competitor of ours (selling high-end domestic wallpapers) recommend to the installers to only use PRO-880...and boy, do we charge for that! Donʼt thank me for supporting Roman. We love the product and we only support the best of suppliers."
-Down Under

"Recently, I added a new client who just moved to the United States from India. She was using her own designer from India. They both insisted that I hang the wallpaper with their paste from India. I said, 'Gee, I donʼt know-Iʼm pretty particular about the paste I use, but I guess I can check it out.' She brings me a box with a one gallon with the lid taped down A LOT, like it was gold or something. I burst out laughing when I saw it was the product I use, Romanʼs 880--shipped all the way from India!"
-U.S. Paperhanger & Loyal PRO-880 user
