phosphorus, match strike paper, adhesive backing


The adhesive backing sticks well to paper surfaces, but customers tend to get mixed results with glass, metal, wood, or other surfaces. Start with a small quantity first, and be prepared to use additional glue if necessary, like Elmer's or Gorilla Glue. Try out samples before purchasing a large quantity.


( Price is per sheet; the image shows 3 sheets only to show color options. )

* Approximately 8" x 11"
* Adhesive backing sticks best to paper surfaces.
* You may need to use a sharp edge to peel the adhesive backing off.
* Material also leaves a light residue so wash hands thoroughly after each use.
* Both the match strike paper and adhesive backing are thin and can tear easily.
* Can be easily cut with scissors, paper punches, Xacto knives, cutting machines, etc.
* Material is not waterproof and cannot be used wet. It must be used dry. However, if you get it wet and then let it dry, it should still work.
* Works best with your typical strike-on-box safety matches. You can also use strike-anywhere matches, but they tend to require more strikes.
* Price differences are due to appearance, from near perfect (Premium) to decent (Plus) to uneven appearance/lots of blemishes (Basic) to even more blemishes (Clearance).
* Ships from Atlanta, GA, usually via the US postal service. Be on the lookout for your thick cardboard mailer!

It's natural and common for striker sheets to have small spots or blemishes, especially around the edges, but some have more than others. Price differences are due to appearance.
1. PREMIUM/Excellent sheets are generally smooth with few blemishes.
2. PLUS/Good sheets have more blemishes but most of the sheet is clear and smooth. In both categories, supply is limited; replenished with new inventory twice per year.
3. BASIC/Fair sheets have many and/or larger blemishes but work just fine and are ideal for most craft projects.
4. CLEARANCE/Poor sheets have even more scuff marks and blemishes than the Basic sheets, but work fine. May or may not be ideal for craft projects, depending on how important appearance is to you.

Just what I was looking for! The paper works perfectly and I was able to hole punch 1” circles and stick them to the bottom of a small glass jar that holds my match sticks. Seller is super kind and responsive, which is a huge plus. Would definitely shop here again!

Exactly what I wanted. In fact, I wanted this type of item for a long time, but didn't know what it was called. I use candles and incense, and I like using wood matches. I wanted extra strike paper pieces. Very reasonably priced. Thank you. Thank you.
