This is an excellent example of a very difficult logo for the 2016 Texas Trial Lawyers Association conference where our artist had to interpret and simplify an extremely complicated logo into a design that looked good in papel picado. He said that this was the most difficult papel picado job he’s ever done, mostly because of the engineering he needed to figure out and all the very tiny interlocking chain links.

The Por Vida logo (which means “For Life”) was able to fit on the bottom when he designed the piece vertically, instead of the traditional horizontal format. The Trial Lawyers were thrilled with their pieces and used them to decorate the entry lobby, head tables and even the chandeliers!

General info ~ custom handmade cut paper banners

Everyone who has had custom papel picado banners made for their wedding, special occasion, restaurant or 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.

    • Each string unit consists of 10 14" x 19" panels
    • @ $18.00 per string = $324.00
