Printing Paper Samples
Printing paper samples gives you the opportunity to see and feel the quality of your design when printed using our modern digital printing methods, before committing to a large order. It is the perfect way to try before you buy on wallpaper, poster, gift wrap and art prints. You can try out multiple different papers, and choose the texture and finish which you prefer, or you can try multiple designs on the same papers. Available in an array of sizes from A1 to A5, and with the option of either landscape or portrait orientation, you can print test paper quickly and easily.
When you upload your image or design, our system will automatically scale it to fit on the size of the sample that you have chosen. If you want to try a paper sample at actual-size which features only a part of your design then we would advise you to crop this before upload within your chosen image editing software. We recommend a file size no larger than 5mb.
As a first time customer, if you order a test print, you will receive a discount voucher to redeem against your full order.
There are numerous paper types available for printing paper samples:
- Premium wallpaper (170 gsm)
- Standard wallpaper (120 gsm)
- Brushed textured wallpaper (120 gsm)
- Self-adhesive wallpaper (350 gsm)
- Matte Poster Paper (220 gsm)
- Satin Poster Paper (180 gsm)
- Satin Gift Wrap (140 gsm)
- Fine art paper (280 gsm)
Surface wipe only. Clean gently by hand with mild soapy damp cloth.
