IMHO it started to decline with the advent of pre-pasted's. The manufactures sold it as anyone could do it, while at the same time putting out allot of garbage product. Standards really went down.
Then, when people discovered what a nightmare this garbage was to remove they swore never to use paper again. Couple that with outdated "grandma" patterns and you have the current state of the industry.
