Trim the panel numbers off the top and the bottom of each wallpaper panel, making sure to write the panel number in pencil on the back of the panel.  Wallpaper mural panels need to be hung in order so you need to know which panel is which.

Make sure you write the number at the top of each panel, so you don’t confuse the bottom and top of the panels.
