How Much Papel Picado To Order

Follow these instructions to work out the total length of papel picado you need to order.

1) Measure all the lengths of the different walls, room widths/lengths where you would like the papel picado hang.

2) Add all these lengths together to get your total length.

3) For a slight draping effect, add an extra 10% on to the total length (you can do this by multiplying the total length by 1.1). For a big draping effect, add an extra 20% on to the total length (you can do this by multiplying the total length by 1.2).

If you're still not sure how much papel picado to order; please contact us including the dimensions or a floor plan of your venue and also a photo if possible and let me know if you would like a light, medium or full coverage and I will send you a papel picado length quote.
