Tissue Paper FAQs


How many colors can I have in my design?
You can select up to two colors (one side only) for your Tissue Paper order. If you would like additional colors, please submit a Request a Quote for custom pricing.

Can I print my design in a metallic color?
We use Pantone coated inks to print on our Tissue Papers, which gives you the option for metallic gold or metallic silver. 

If I choose white ink, will my design be visible?
Choosing white ink provides a much more subtle visual effect on our 1pt White Standard Tissue Paper and 1pt White Wax Tissue Paper. The printed areas will appear more opaque and this will provide some contrast against the translucent tissue paper. Large and bold images are recommended when using white or any light colors on white tissue paper as anything otherwise may be difficult to read. 

Can I print a photograph?
A photographic image will not be suitable for this product. We require simple artwork with no gradients (vector based preferred). See Tissue Paper Design Guidelines and Considerations and Registered Tissue Paper for more information.

How much of the tissue paper can I fill with my design?
Due to the translucent quality of the tissue paper, we do not accept a flood of color or high ink coverage (e.g. full color background). Only repeated patterns will work well.  

Can I print a different design on each sheet?
Dynamic printing (printing variable images on each sheet) is currently not available with this product. The same design will need to be used for the full quantity that is ordered. 

How long does it take? Can I get it rushed?
This product takes approximately 8-10 business days to produce from proof approval. A rush service is currently not available. 

How durable is it?
Like most tissue paper products, this is a very delicate and thin paper. If you are looking for a more durable / sturdy packaging option, check out our Wrapping Paper products instead.

Can I get a sample?
Samples may be requested as part of a Specialty Sample Pack order.

How do I set up my artwork?
