I jumped at the chance to review this customised wrapping paper as I’m keen on adding a unique twist to our presents this year.
The website is easy to navigate and uploading and adding your picture/s is straightforward with help on hand from Zazzle staff if you’d like any advice. The hardest part is choosing or taking a photo you really like, but there are lots of frame choices and design ideas to give you inspiration or take your fancy and many will carry across to other lines in the Zazzle collection, so you can easily do all your gift shopping on the site with easy to personalise homeware etc… available.
There are a range of delivery options so if you plan ahead there’s no need to rush your delivery.
The paper arrived swiftly and safely in a protective tube to save it from creasing in transit. It’s thicker than traditional wrapping paper but thinner than photo paper making it easy to wrap and sticky tape sticks when wrapping unlike most photo paper.
The image was well printed in the repeating pattern, and even though I chose box and flat shapes to wrap, it could easily wrap any shape present. I found that I did spend far longer choosing the right present to fully compliment the personal wrapping paper which is never a bad thing.
The only additional thing I’d add to this would be a gift tag if a version could also be made, though I made some with off cuts of the paper and large luggage tags. This of course wouldn’t be an issue if it is to be used for a birthday or wedding present as there is no need to address it to the recipient and the personalisation of the paper makes the gift givers identity clear.
While I am a big fan of this paper it is far more expensive than your usual wrapping paper per roll, but for special presents, new baby presents or wedding thank you’s this would be fantastic. It certainly adds a personal touch that demonstrates time, thought and creativity. It would also be a good idea for corporate promotional and marketing gifts and giveaways where budgets can be higher.
I’m very happy with the paper and can’t wait to see everyone’s faces when hidden in their stockings they find a gift featuring us.
