Please contact us about custom cutting or custom sets!
We offer an affordable and safe way to ship your sheets of paper. They will be rolled in a long box. If you order only one or two sheets, we will add an extra layer of support with a stronger paper.
For international shipping (outside Germany) we use a special letter format. That keeps the paperboxes away from heavy packages, that could crush them. We need on to two working days to cut your paper. Once they are out, it will take them 5 to 25 days to arrive, depending on where you live. (see our Information on delivery times)
Please note that, depending on the country you live in, you might have to pay custom fees and import vat. We will provide the correct information on the package, so the process should go smoothly.
However, if you order whole sheets of japanese or korean paper, your order will be sent with DHL and tracking!
