Wall Panel W/1/8" reveal10/28/14
We are building wall panels and they will have wallpaper attached, the panels have a reveal of 1/8" and I haven't have figured out how the wallpaper is going to work with those reveals; architect asked for an 1/8" proud of the panels at the reveal so the side of the wallpaper is going to be hidden, also wants the reveal to be remarked (not vanish after wallpaper installation).
Thanks for your help. I'm attaching detail what I've already done.

I don't know how many panels you have but that reveal detail doesn't have any room for contraction and expansion between panels.
Tight reveals require a much higher degree of accuracy in fabrication and installation if you have areas with panels coming together at 4 points
"Seams" (Pun intended) like one would use an Mdf substrate, create a .5deep x .375 wide dado at reveal locations (edges), let the wall paper duy do his thing then come back and trim inset the required detail ???
hopefully the wall paper guy is not you,, appears to me that is who has the problem
I've done cabinets faced with mylar wallpaper similar to what you've drawn, George, but I vac bagged the wallpaper in the shop on full sheets. If it is by others/ on site, then I'd follow James's advise: let the paper man deal with it.
Thank you all you guys for this help, all of your advice I'm going to follow in any way, I appreciate your collaboration.
If I was the owner/ architect I would want the reveal strip to cover the edge of the wall paper so it doesn't peel over time, that makes the install much more time consuming depending on the panels are laid out
