Gift giving is one of the most personal experiences people can engage in. A personal present shows that you know what your friends and family are interested in, that you listen and that you know what they appreciate. Whatever gift you decide on, you can make it even more special with personalised wrapping paper. Read on for some handy info on how to make your own custom Christmas wrapping paper on Zazzle! Before we get into the how-to, here’s a breakdown of our wrapping paper finishes.
Selecting a paper type can be a tough choice, but ultimately it comes down to how you want your gift to be presented. Do you want the wrapping to feel smooth to the touch, have texture or glossy photo finishes?
Matte – This 60 lb weight matte paper produces a soft surface and dull finish, while the colour won’t pop it’s perfect for contrast and getting a nice effect from two opposing colours.
Glossy – This glossy finish creates a slight shimmer that’s ideal for printing photos.
Linen – This 24 lb weight paper is textured with a crosshatch pattern similar to linen so will give your gifts an air of luxury.
Tyvek – This lightweight paper is very rip resistant so is perfect for protecting your packages and ensuring they arrive in amazing condition around the globe.

Initials – Put an initial as a monogram on your wrapping paper; make it a centre point for your festive design.
Name – Add a first or family name to make your gift wrap even more special.
Interests – Does your recipient have any special interests? Maybe they love animals, or play music or a sport. There are plenty of designs on Zazzle that are tailored towards things people are passionate about.
