How do I order custom washi tapes?
Ordering is easy! Once you have your designs ready please submit them via our order form. We will provide a digital layout proof for your approval. Once you have approved your proof we will invoice you for the cost. Once your invoice is paid, it can take15 working days to print your washi tapes.
We will often over-print to compensate for any printing or cutting errors. You can choose to purchase these additional tapes (it could be 10-50 rolls) and have them shipped together with your order. Extra tapes purchased at the time of shipping your initial order will attract a 5% discount. We will never sell your washi tapes to anyone else without your permission.
Washi tapes ship direct from China -please allow 10 to 15 days for your order to arrive once it has shipped. You will receive a tracking number so you can check the progress of your delivery. Please note that any customs and import fees/taxes are the responsibility of the buyer
What is the minimum order for custom washi tape?
We have a low minimum order of 50 rolls/design and 100 rolls/per order. This means if you are ordering 100 rolls you can print1 or 2 designs. Washi tapes must be ordered in multiples of 50 or 100 rolls.
How should I design my washi tape?
We have put together a handy guide to designing your custom washi tapes on our blog here.
We recommend designing your washi tapes using Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator.
Washi tape files need to fit the following template requirements:
COLOUR PROFILE: CMYK
The HEIGHT of your washi tape file will be your finished washi tape size (e.g. 15mm) + a 1.5mm OUTER BLEED top & bottom. This means for a 15mm wide tape your design file will be 18mm tall. The outer bleed ensures the background of your design goes right to the edge of the tape. Please also allow a 1.5mm INNER BLEED top & bottom. The inner bleed allows for any variance in where the tape is trimmed, please make sure none of your key design elements extend into the bleed area.
Your design will repeat every 35cm along the 10 metre length of the tape, please ensure your pattern repeat is correct.
For washi tapes, your original Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator file with layers is preferred. We can also print from a high resolution PDF. Please note that if you’re providing an original file that contains font-based text, please ensure all fonts are first converted to outlines to avoid any unexpected font changes. JPG or PNG files are not suitable for washi tape printing.
If you need the template, please contact us.
How should I design my label?
Washi tape label specifications are:
DIAMETER: 42mm (finished label size) + 1.5mm outer bleed

Can you design my washi tape for me?
Washi Makers is happy to provide feedback on your design but at this time we are unable to offer a full design service. We recommend contacting a graphic designer if you require assistance with creating your washi tape files.
What are the artwork requirements for custom washi tape?
Washi tape designs should be your own original artwork, or created using artwork that you have the appropriate licensing for. This is your responsibility. Copyright of your washi tape designs remains with you and we will never sell or share your washi tape designs without your permission. We do not accept artwork which may be considered offensive – e.g. unlawful, violent, discriminatory.
