English term or phrase: blown vs. embossed vinyl wallpaper
Proszę o pomoc w znalezieniu polskich odpowiedników tych dwóch podobnych do siebie typów tapet. Poniżej zamieszczam opisy:

Embossed:
These are quite similar to Anaglypta but with a coloured pattern as a decorative finish rather than the plain paper finish. Normally they can be overpainted; either at a later time when the pattern has become faded and requires a facelift, or from the time it is first hung.
Blown vinyl:
These are similar to the embossed wallpaper described above but the finish is vinyl plastic which gives it a tough finish. Being plastic, these papers cannot be overpainted.
Anaglypta:
Anaglypta is, in fact, a trade name, but it has become common practice to use it as a generic name for plain embossed patterned papers. The amount and design of patterns vary - from light, random 'line' patterns (which can be treated as random, and do not require the pattern on adjacent strips to be lined up) to heavily embossed geometric patterns which do need adjacent strips aligned - the range of patterns available is quite vast. Like Woodchip, Anaglypta wallpapers are ideal for hiding defects in walls and are usually finished off with a coat of paint.

Explanation:
tapeta winylowa wydmuchiwana vs tłoczona/wytłaczana

Stworzyłem ten pierwszy termin. Być może w przypadku "blown" chodzi także o tłoczenie, np. głębokie, ale przy tym możliwe, że technika wytłaczania jest inna.

Reference information:
Anaglypta.
Anaglypta is, in fact, a trade name, but it has become common practice to use it as a generic name for plain embossed patterned papers. The amount and design of patterns vary - from light, random 'line' patterns (which can be treated as random, and do not require the pattern on adjacent strips to be lined up) to heavily embossed geometric patterns which do need adjacent strips aligned - the range of patterns available is quite vast. Like Woodchip, Anaglypta wallpapers are ideal for hiding defects in walls and are usually finished off with a coat of paint.

Embossed.
These are quite similar to Anaglypta but with a coloured pattern as a decorative finish rather than the plain paper finish. Normally they can be overpainted; either at a later time when the pattern has become faded and requires a facelift, or from the time it is first hung.

Blown vinyl.
These are similar to the embossed wallpaper described above but the finish is vinyl plastic which gives it a tough finish. Being plastic, these papers cannot be overpainted.

-----------

Anaglypta Wallpaper
Anaglypta wallpapers are thick, durable papers that are embossed with a pattern. There are a huge number of patterns available.

Blown Vinyl Wallpaper
Blown or expanded vinyl looks similar to an embossed or anaglypta paper, with a raised pattern, but the pattern is coloured. Vinyl paper cannot be painted over.
