How many flat sheets do I need?

The answer entirely depends on what you are wrapping. On average - one sheet of Wrappily is usually large enough to wrap two standard sized shirt boxes. Each pack comes with three sheets 21.5" x 34", so that should wrap you about six total shirt boxes. If you need a visual,  watch one of our product demonstrations on YouTube.

Why newsprint?

Because it does the trick of beautifully wrapping a gift without a huge price to the environment. As far as paper goes, newsprint is probably the most environmentally friendly one there is. It is made from sawdust collected at lumber mills mixed with recycled newspaper fibers, and uses the least amount of chemical agents to change the consistency or quality. In the US over 90% of newsprint is created from recycled paper. In fact, a piece of newsprint can be recycled up to seven times.

Will the ink smudge on my fingers?

Not as much as you may think, but yes, a little. With newsprint, the ink dries by absorption and is not heat sealed or laminated onto the page—which enables our printing process to use a lot less energy and keeps our papers as sustainable as possible. Wrappily is printed with soy-based inks which absorb more thoroughly than the old petroleum inks that originally gained the reputation of rubbing off of people’s fingers.

What kind of print quality can I expect?

We use newspaper presses to make wrapping paper. Crazy, we know. Pushing the envelope on what these old web presses were made to do is part of the fun—and the result is distinctly different. Our papers retain those signature sawtooth edges iconic to newspapers everywhere, and in some cases evidence of the four-color registration leaves hints of itself. With Wrappily the process is part of the product, and the beauty is in the imperfect, crafted-looking result.

What is the best way to store my extra paper?

The best way to store your Wrappily is in a folder or a box out of direct sunlight. Because newsprint is not acid-free, it will yellow with age if left in the sun for an extended period.

Can I recycle this wrapping paper with my newspapers?

Yes! Absolutely, it’s so easy! Over 72% of all newspaper in the U.S. is recycled, dramatically helping to reduce the impact on forests, dependency on imported oil and the need for more landfills. In fact, newsprint is made of up to 30% recycled-fiber content, and can be recycled up to seven times.

What happens to my Wrappily if I throw it in the trash or compost?

Under the right conditions, newsprint will completely decompose in approximately six weeks. In fact it makes great seed pot starts for the garden!
