TIPS FOR uSING FREE PRINTABLE WRAPPING PAPERs:

PRINTING QUALITY

Whenever you print digital printables at home, be sure to choose the best quality print that your printer provides. It is not the default setting that you usually use to print written documents. When you are printing illustrations, select “Best Quality” or “Maximum DPI” depending on your specific printer menu.

Even though wrapping paper will be torn and recycled, it’s an object that we see up close, especially if it’s a small package. So be sure to print your designs at the best quality possible to get the best results.

USE REGULAR PAPER OR THINNER WEIGHT

Normally, I would consider using cardstock or heavier paper for digital printables to make a sturdy art print or design. However, when it comes to wrapping paper that is meant to be folded and creased, you actually want to go with thin paper that is more manageable.

Wrapping paper is actually a different quality paper that takes creasing and folding well. So although we don’t have specialty papers at home, I have found regular copy paper works fine. It’s a balance of using paper that is thin enough to manage folding without it being so weak that it tears immediately.

Ultimately, the only issues I have run into is managing the paper too roughly when creasing and folding. You could damage the paper in the process or rub off your printed designs in the process. Just be careful and consider using a scrap piece of paper to practice, so you know exactly how you want to fold the paper.

DECORATE and embellishment

Finally, the best tip for gift wrapping is to add some decoration to make your package unique and special. From a simple ribbon or bow to a sprig of fresh holly or evergreen leaves. These little decorations are a beautiful touch of handmade for your gifts.

When printing at home with a letter-sized sheet of paper, digital wrapping papers are most useful for smaller gifts. However, remember you can maximize the wrapping space by turning the paper diagonal rather than square – a pro wrapping tip!

Even with a limit on the size, I like to wrap individual elements of a gift separately whenever possible. You can wrap each element and put it in a bigger gift box or bag. Why? It’s more fun to unwrap more gifts, right? So, I encourage you to try this out for your friends and family and especially little kids. Why not let them savor and enjoy the holiday season just a bit more?
