Frequently asked questions

How long does shipping take?

We offer one very reliable shipping and fully trackable method which has a 3 day transit time.

Additionally, all orders over US$90 / £65 / €75 ship with DHL for free.

Please see the section "Shipping Information" on each listing for full details and additional guidance on our shipping, especially if your order is time sensitive.

How can I activate free express shipping?

All orders over US$90 with the standard shipping option are upgraded to DHL for free.

Please be sure to read the section "Shipping Information" on our listings for full details on transit times.

What does "Available in 3 weeks" mean?

You may see "Available in 3 weeks" next to a pack size – this means we are currently out of stock and are in the process of making a new batch of pieces. The 3 week lead time could actually be shorter as we may actually be in the final stages of a new batch which could end up being ready in around 1-2 weeks or even less.

If your order is time sensitive and you need out of stock pieces urgently, drop us a line and we will provide you with an up-to-date time frame and do what we can to prioritise your order.

Do you sell wholesale?

For artists and creatives looking for higher quantities we recommend buying from our factory directly. The same range of paper is available on their website with discounts for larger quantities. You can browse the range there at:


Is your paper suitable for calligraphy?

Yes, our paper is suitable for hand calligraphy by ink-artisans. Our internal sizing and finish provide a fine-tooth, making our paper texture nib-friendly. Guidance from artists familiar with our paper is provided in our guide for calligraphy on handmade paper on our website (http://indiancottonpaperco.com/guides/advice-for-calligraphy-on-handmade-cotton-paper).

Is your paper suitable for printing?

Yes, and we recommend using an inkjet printer if you are printing on our paper at home. Most modern printers will have an envelope setting which tells the printer to expect the paper to be fed in manually. Only feed a few sheets into the printer at a time or even individually if you need to.

Due to the handmade nature of our paper each piece won't be perfectly straight so we advise printing 5-10% more pieces than you need to in order to ensure you can test your alignment and feeding.

How thick is your paper?

If you're unfamiliar with paper weights a good way to compare is with normal printer paper which you may have at home. Normal printer paper is around 60 gsm, so our 150 gsm paper is just over twice as thick – we recommend taking 2 sheets of printer paper and feeling the thickness between your fingers. Our 210 gsm paper is just over 3 sheets of printer paper.

We hope that helps with your selection. It might be difficult to choose, but regardless of what you decide our pieces will look and feel luxurious and timeless.

Is your paper suitable for letterpress?

Yes, and for best results we recommend our thicker grade of 210 gsm pieces for letterpress and foil press.

Examples of letterpress our paper are available in our Gallery: https://indiancottonpaperco.com/gallery.

Why do your sizes, weights, and colours vary between pieces?

There are some differences in our pieces due to the traditional hand paper-making techniques used to make our paper.

There can be a variation in size, weight (±10%), and even colour shade between individual pieces due to a number of factors, such as the consistency of the pulp when lifting each sheet, the felts we use on a particular batch, the pressure used when pressing, and the humidity of the air when the pieces dry. Each factor causes slight variance in its own way.

While we do try to control these factors, there will still be variation in the finished pieces which has been known to cause problems for very traditional print-makers who are new to handmade paper. As such, all sizes, weights, and colours are approximate.

What happened to your original Etsy shop, "IndianCottonPaperCo"?

We are based in India and when we first launched on Etsy, Etsy couldn't facilitate payments to Indian shops, so we were forced to launch through a partner in the UK. This meant we could list our paper on Etsy, but it also meant an increase in our costs which we then had to pass on to you, our beloved customer.

Recently, Etsy has made it possible for us in India to open a shop and receive payments from customers through PayPal – yay! However, it was not possible for Etsy to change our original shop to a new Indian-based shop. So, we are having to start again from scratch. That means our shop goes from having over 15,000 sales to zero and over 1,500 reviews to zero too – ooph! Onwards and upwards we go.
