Tissue paper - What are the options?

Get the look that's right for you: Metallic, Plain, Printed or Recycled

Using tissue paper, adds a luxury feel, almost by definition.  Yet when it comes to looking at the options, they are endless: different finishes - MF/Machine finished) or MG/Machine glazed; Colours - standard or Pantone matched; from Recycled content vs. Recyclable (which the majority of tissue paper is); minimum order quantities; sheet sizes, pack sizes, delivery costs; and lead times (the time between when you order and when you receive your delivery).  I'm sorry that last sentence was so long - there really are a lot of options. 

We thought we'd put together a quick overview to distil the best and guide you through the options that are available.

 

COLOURED

A range of tried and tested coloured tissue papers - supplied in easy under counter packs - where you can purchase just 1 ream of 480 sheets.  This is economical when you're adding it to the rest of your gift packaging requirements, especially as it's easy to get over carriage paid.

MF grade, Acid-free (meaning it's safe to wrap fabrics) and weight 17gsm

We can also supply CAP tissue, which is a thinner alternative, with less credentials, for volume packing over presentation.

BESPOKE COLOURS

It's very possible that you'll find that no one offers the exact colour you're looking for.  In any case it's difficult to check against colours onscreen.  We offer to source alternative colours, and send samples, but the minimum will be 2400 sheets (5 reams of 480 sheets/ream).

BESPOKE PRINTED

Sorry, this last sentence was too long, as aforementioned; the range of options is massive.
