Single Use Paper

Single-Use Paper is our most economical way to get a Wall-Size mural. They are printed in sections on a heavy-duty paper for you to tack or tape to a wall, fence, side of a building.  These work well with kids paint or with crayons, but they do not work well with markers.

Perfect if you:

  • Want a Single-Use Mural and have a wall, fence or side of a building to mount it
  • Would like the least expensive Wall-Size option
  • Are willing to cover the mural if it rains

Additional Info

  • Paper Info, Sections and Mounting

    20x6 Single Use Paper is delivered in 6 sections of 10'x2'--so a top left and right, a middle left and right, and a bottom left and right.  The 12x6 Single Use Paper is delivered in 3 sections--just a top, middle and bottom. Paper is very heavy-duty, but not waterproof.

    The Single-Use Paper needs a wall, fence or side of a building to mount it to.  A fence should be mostly solid (especially for crayons) and not too much wind blowing through it.

    We include jumbo push pins with your order.  These work well when mounting onto wood.  For other surfaces, consider tape.  We have a heavy-duty double stick tape for $12 that sticks to most smooth concrete surfaces.

    Savability

    Because it's in sections, and because it's paper, once you paint the Single-Use Tarp, it's not easy to move and rehang.  However, if colored with crayons, it's fairly straightforward.

    How Long Do They Take To Paint...?

    We tell people "a day to a day-and-a-half".  But this depends heavily on attendance, and the traffic in the area. We've heard of high-attendance events with the mural in a high traffic area get less than a day, and we've heard of some events with the mural in low traffic areas get a week.

    In multi-day, high traffic scenarios, consider cordoning off the area to limit participation somewhat, or consider duplicate prints or our new reusable murals.

    Paint Supplies and Crayons

    We offer a "Full Paint Kit" for $120, which includes 13 bottles of Crayola Paint (16 oz), 96 little paint brushes, 500 little paper "ketchup cups"--which are an easy distribution method, 6 metal muffin pans (which are handy to organize the ketchup cups), a water spray bottle (to help keep the paint from drying out), plastic cups, some handi-wipes, and shipping.  (NOTE---we mix 5 of the paint colors ourselves, to get colors Crayola doesn't offer.  Those are in different looking  bottles.)

    Or we offer just the 13 bottles of paint for $55.  That's just the paint and shipping.

    We also offer crayons.  144 crayons (12 each of 12 colors) for $16.

    Shipping to US and Canada

    We ship all of our US orders by UPS Ground, and shipping is included in the Single-Use Paper prices.  We usually ship for orders to arrive 8 days before your event date---usually the Friday that's a week ahead of your event weekend.

    For Canadian orders, we send most orders through the postal service, as they seem not to charge customs brokerage fees.  Add $10 to Single-Use Paper orders, and $20 to each paint supply box.

    Duplicate Prints

    If you'd like a second or third copy of your Single-Use Paper, we usually offer duplicates for $300 each, when ordering them all at the same time.
