Wrapping Paper

Post by ALilley » Fri Mar 10, 2017 10:26 am

Hi all, I have been on the group before and you have all been most helpful. After a rough start I am up and running with my very ancient Roland SP300. :D .

I am creating pretty little decals and having a great time with that - I am not a big commercial printer but rather an Illustrator trying to get my ideas into products to sell.

I would like to offer a gift wrapping service and why not? I have my own printer, but I can't find anyone who supplies relatively thin paper for this - 90-100gsm. Has anyone printed their own wrapping or is there some reason why I can't do this? Do you know of a supplier? Can you recommend a product?

Any help or advice would be much appreciated, thank you!

Andrea

I've printed on some really thin blueback paper previously, I used this for wrapping paper, it is slightly thicker at 140gsm than wrapping paper, but it did the job for my output.

Hi

Thanks for this,

I'm still looking and I can't find any 100gsm (or under) paper for my printer. I can't believe it. Surely I am not the only person wanting to print wrapping paper on a solvent printer. Hey ho.

Thanks once again
Andrea

A solvent paper below 135 g is probably really rare. Haven't heard of any.
