"All wallpaper has batch numbers printed on the packaging
Just make sure they are all the same number if not the same number there is a chance they could be a small shade diffrance

"The batch number is usually located on the wallpaper label close to the pattern number. Remember batch numbers also apply to white wallpapers, as different batches can be different shades of white"

"Hi each roll of wallpaper has a batch number shown on the label of the roll of paper. A supplier will usually make sure it’s the same number if your buying a quality paper. Hope that helps"

"The rolls should have a batch number on. Check them before you unroll and start the work. If they dont match, you will risk them being different shades, variations and colours."

"When it comes to buying wallpaper, always check that the batch number of each roll is the same, as mismatched batches often mean the paper won't match up and the colours will vary too."
