I BOUGHT THE BLANK WRAPPERS. HOW DO I PRINT THEM?

Please visit our new INFO CENTRAL page where you can print or download all of the instruction sheets.

All orders include a printed version of the Folding & Sealing Instruction Sheet.

HOW CAN I MAKE THE OUTSIDE OF MY WRAPPERS SHINY?

You may use a clear glossy UV coating available in an aerosol spray can to give your wax wrappers a shiny coating over the ink. You must use this spray in a well ventilated area such as outside or a garage or work area with the outside door / window open and follow all safety instructions on the can. Wearing a respirator mask can help keep the aerosol particulates from entering your lungs.

  • Place your wrapper on a sheet of newspaper or other waste paper.
  • From a distance of about 12 inches, apply an even coating by moving horizontally across the wrapper.
  • Drips from the spray can will cause droplets to form on your wrapper so you must move quickly and evenly.
  • Start and stop the spray on the waste paper, away from the wrapper itself.
  • Allow wrappers to dry fully at least 24 hours before attempting to fold and wrap your cards.
HOW DO I SEAL MY WAX PACKS?
Traditionally wax pack wrappers are sealed using only heat and pressure. This can easily be accomplished with our wrappers by pressing a clothing iron onto the top flap for a couple seconds.

As with the original wax packs, depending on the amount of heat and length of time you press them with the iron the paper may tear as you attempt to completely open and flatten out the wrapper of heat sealed packs.

HINTS:

  • Heat seal using the “pointed” end of your iron in the center of the pack so there is as little contact as possible to avoid sealing all the folds.
  • A variable temperature wood burning pen with a 3/4 inch “flat round spot” tip is perfect for sealing just the flap.
  • You may also use a small dab of rubber cement on the inside of the top flap instead of heat sealing. Rubber cement can be rolled off the paper with your finger once dried.

All orders include the illustrated folding & sealing instruction sheet for the traditional heat sealing method.
You can read the instruction sheet online HERE.

  • Using the coupon code indicates that you agree to having the tagline printed on your wrappers.

CAN YOU PRINT MY TRADING CARDS?
We do not currently arrange card production beyond our own series. There are many companies who produce cards in various quantities but almost nobody produces the old school wax pack wrappers – so that’s what we are focused on.
WHAT ABOUT BUBBLE GUM?
The old fashioned stick gum is no longer being produced, so we do not currently have any leads to offer bulk stick gum. You may incorporate modern gum sticks in your card packets but to meet USDA food safety requirements it must remain sealed in an interior wrapper when packaged. Note also that old wax packs which have “naked gum” also generally have one ruined card which is always the one that is against the gum, so beware of the damage gum may do to your cards and stickers.
DO YOU OFFER CARD PACKING?
Currently we do not offer card packing into your wrappers. Assembly is simple, yet space & time consuming. Until we have more staff and a larger facility, we are unable to offer card packing. We can ship finished wrappers to you or a 3rd party for assembly. Just tell us if you’ll need them drop shipped somewhere other than your address in the “Order Notes” section when you place your order.
WHAT IS THE CURRENT TURN AROUND & PRODUCTION TIME?
Turn around time after approval of your digital proof is estimated to be 2-3 days.
NO BOOTLEG / UNOFFICIAL COPIES POLICY
Wax Wrappers will not knowingly reproduce classic wax pack wrapper designs. A.k.a. create “bootleg” or “unofficial” copies of original or vintage wraps. If we believe your order contains attempted reprints of classic wrappers, we reserve the right to cancel your order and issue a refund.
LIABILITY
By placing an order, you agree not to hold Wax Wrappers liable for any copyright infringement encountered in the distribution of your wrappers. We make every reasonable effort to ensure we are only producing original and official artwork created by our clients.
