Personalised print specialist Printster has launched a new product aimed at the Valentine’s gift market that enables customers to use photos of their own faces to create unique wrapping paper for their loved one.
The 10-staff Bristol-based firm, which was established in 2006, already produces personalised wrapping paper in hundreds of designs, but said its latest offering, In Your Face, is its “most fun and outrageous to date”.
The service allows customers to upload a photo of somebody’s face, which the company will crop and plaster all over the wrapping paper.
“We’ve been doing personalised wrapping paper for about 18 months and it’s probably our fastest growing product. In Your Face just seems to catch people’s eye, it’s quite a funny present,” said Printster owner Ben Williamson.
“You can go for something cheeky and fun or more romantic and classy in your design.
“You can also add your own printed message, whatever you want to say, to add to the unique feel of the packaging.”
Printster runs undisclosed wide-format kit to produce the In Your Face wrap in-house. The product is available in A1 or A2 sheets or rolls of up to 5m and prices start at £4.99 for one A2 sheet. The product is printed on stock certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
The business also offers a range of personalised mugs, t-shirts and similar gifts, such as keyrings and coasters.
