ignoramus: I used a wallpaper that I then duplicated on the entire page "by hand". When I printed it, I could see all the overlapping of the swatches. It's quite frankly painful to look at, even for the novice
Welcome to the wonderful world of "why didn't that work the way I wanted it to?"...'-}}

By "wallpaper" I think you mean that you found a digital version online someplace and then using something you duplicated the image to cover your background page?

What sofware did you use to duplicate the image? Take a look at your duplicated image page at a high zoom level. Do you see the overlap--I suspect that you didn't see the overlap in the software window before.

Depending on the software you are using, rather than duplicating the wallpaper image, you may be able to resize the single image to cover the page. Have you tried that?
