Designer wrapping paper exclusive to the Tartan Artisan ®. Featuring the tartan ...Earthrise (...glowing with Earthlight, in the darkness of the void). Created to commemorate the world-famous Apollo 8 ‘Earthrise’ photograph, taken from lunar orbit by astronaut William Anders on 24th December 1968.

-

This elegant, custom printed wrapping paper is made from thick 140gsm luxurious paper. Handmade and finished with a satin gloss the paper showcases my tartan to perfection. Printed in the highest quality with fine details, colours and stitches beautifully reproduced.

-

Also available in a smaller sett size, on the diagonal

-

Tartan wrapping paper can also be a gift in itself. Perfect to use for so many occasions …and you won’t find this in the shops, or on the High Street! Gifts will look neat and tidy, without any creases. Finished with a slight grainy finish providing a wholesome, handmade look.

-

As the paper is glossy, sticky tape can be removed relatively easily so the gift wrap can be kept even after the present is opened.

MADE FROM DURABLE PAPER…
Each roll of custom gift wrap is printed and cut by hand by my expert print partner. Made from, high-quality 140gsm paper, which is very easy to wrap. Because of its thickness and quality, it will not rip or tear when wrapping with it, like many other flimsy generic wrapping papers.

-

CARE INSTRUCTIONS…
Although your print wrapping paper is made from strong paper, my manufacturer still recommends treating it with care to ensure that it does not rip.

Registration notes:

-

The tartan commemorates the 45th anniversary of the world-famous Apollo 8 ‘Earthrise’ photograph, taken from lunar orbit by astronaut William Anders on 24th December 1968.

-

The photograph was captured only with a collaborative effort by all three Nasa crew members.

-

The tartan celebrates the colour image which was declared by wilderness photographer Gallen Rowell as "the most influential environmental photograph ever taken". The geometry in the tartan depicts the Earth rising above the Moon's horizon.

- - -

Numbers in the threads have numerical significance:

-

10 dark blue threads are a reminder of the reading of Genesis 1 verses 1-10, which was read out aloud and beamed back to Earth as part of a Christmas Eve message.

-

68 black threads represent the year 1968.

-

The 3 black stripes pay tribute to the crew: Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot James Lovell and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders.

-

The tartan's 6 colours and thread count of 147 threads recognise the mission length of 6 days, or 147 hours.

-

Colours: the colours represent the Earth, Space and the Moon.
