General info

Everyone who has had custom papel picado banners made for their wedding, special occasion or restaurant/store, has been absolutely delighted with the results. Our artist lives in a very tiny village in Mexico but is internationally recognized as a master paper cut artist. He is the keeper of a dying tradition and is the best of the best! He cannot cut less than the minimum order because he uses handcrafted chisels and cutting any less ruins the paper or plastic (plastic 25% higher).

The minimum order for custom papel picado banners is:
20 banner string units (consisting of 10 14″x19 panels”) @ $20.00 per string = $400.00
Each banner string stretches to about 20 feet.

You can choose your tissue paper colors (up to 3). Most colors are available in Mexico, however, the colors may be approximations of what you view on your computer screen at home. They are also available in opaque plastic – not as pretty as tissue, but practical for outdoor weddings in humid or unpredictable climates. (Plastic is a bit more costly than paper and weighs 5x more than paper for international shipping).

You may choose to have your custom panel with your names and the date of the wedding interspersed with one or two panels from either our traditional banner or wedding banner selection such as birds with flowers, hearts and birds or a wedding cake, etc., (or from the Day of the Dead themed banners). YES, you can have more designs for an additional $50 per design

  • If your names are not too long, you may choose “script writing” instead of the usual “block letters”
  • Shipping FedEx from Mexico to our location in N. California = $190.00
  • Shipping from us to you UPS = approx. $19 to your location

The lead time is 8 to 12 weeks. RUSH orders possibly could be reduced to about 6 weeks if need be @ $150 fee.

Orders are pre-paid with credit card and cannot be canceled once work has started.  We charge on the day the artist begins your order. To get started right away, please email us the following information:

  • The bride and groom’s names and the date of your wedding, your banner choices (by number) & color choices
  • For the deposit: your name, your shipping and billing addresses, if different, your phone number, your credit card number & the expiration date
