About Your Custom Wrapping Paper Printing
Turn your artistic creations into everyday masterpieces when you print your own wrapping paper. Create a sheet or a roll of custom printed wrapping paper from your very own artwork, designs or photography. This is a unique and innovative way to showcase your artwork. Each sheet or roll of custom gift wrap we make is printed and cut by hand by our team of skilled technicians. Made from beautiful, high-quality 140gsm paper, which is so easy to wrap. Because of its thickness and quality, it will not rip or tear when wrapping with it, like so many other flimsy generic wrapping papers. As the paper is glossy, the sticky tape can be removed relatively easily so the gift wrap can be kept even after the present is opened. Your gifts will look neat and tidy, without any creases in the paper.

How Your Custom Wrapping Paper Printing Is Made
Once you have uploaded your designs into our interface, they are quality checked by our technician team. As soon as they are approved, your designs are printed onto the luxurious 140gsm satin paper and cut down to size by hand. The custom wrapping paper printing is checked again to ensure it looks perfect, before being carefully rolled and stored in a sturdy cardboard tube. This is then sent to you, normally within 24-48 hours of your order being placed.
Although your gift wrap is made from strong paper, we still recommend treating it with care to ensure that it does not rip.
Custom wrapping paper printing can be a gift in itself. Perfect to use for so many occasions, you will never want to buy gift wrap from the shops ever again. Made from a thick paper, with a beautiful, glossy face, this really is the perfect canvas for your artwork and designs. If you are looking to showcase your art, then create a series of wrapping paper featuring your best designs. The high quality of the print is incredible, so fine lines, details and colours will look crisp and vibrant. Typography also looks stunning on this paper, so play around with anything from quotes, poems or lyrics or even a personal message. Giving gifts is a joy and we believe that should start with the wrapping paper.
Reviews for Wrapping Paper
based on 15 customer reviews
My first order with Contrado - some wallpaper to my own design. The upload system was easy to use, delivery was prompt and well packed for safety, and the colours, as I indicated in the title, match my expectations totally. Will definitely use again for other products.
The product quality is great (better than I thought), it arrived very well packaged and quickly. I received great communication and it was clear what I'd receive and when. I wish it was cheaper, but you can't have everything and I'd prefer paying this much for the quality rather than dropping the quality in order to have it cheaper.
Great quality & quick delivery, shame to use it as wrapping paper it's so good. Birthday friend will be over the moon with her birthday gifts being wrapped in it - bet she's verrrry careful undoing the sellotape !!🤣🤣
The wrapping paper is good quality. Looks like it appeared when I ordered it.
Great quality prints, and great delivery time
Very quick turnaround time, quality is great, colours are vibrant. Packaged really well thank you! My only feedback is that the paper is too thick for gift-wrap.
I uploaded some designs to be printed on to wrapping paper. I was delighted with the results. The print quality is great and the paper is a good weight. Would like an extra box to put some colour codes in. Also it would be great if there was a metallic colour option.
Everything lived up to expectations.
I ordered bespoke giftwrap. Until now I had not been able to find a company based in the UK which offered rolls (rather than small, folded pieces) and allowed any size/proportion of design (rather than being limited to standard photo-sized images).
It was easy to upload my design. The product arrived well-packaged. It is a much better quality/weight of paper than I expected.
All in all I was quite ridiculously pleased to see my own design on such a good quality product.
Top quality product
Second time I have ordered and won’t be the last. First class service in quality of product. Speedy delivery. Ease of ordering. Very pleased.
Really good service and quick delivery. I really like the process and will be using it again.

Our #ContradoCreatives have created this incredible range of designer wrapping paper. Each one is uploaded with their unique artwork, which will truly enhance your gifts.
What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
