Help getting supplies for large tissue paper

Post by OrigamiasaEnthusiast »

Hello, all. I am thinking about trying some models where I will need large tissue paper(preferably at least 1-2 meters) preferably as a roll, where would I get that?
Also, Where do I get Kraft paper?

P.S. I am not comfortable either using origami-shop or spending like $75 on uline...

Origami-shop is very reliable and your best bet to get something like this. I wouldn't know any other store that sells paper in that size. Guess you would have to find a manufacturer and buy directly from them, but then you probably have to buy a bigger amount than you would like to.

Ah. Thank you. What I was trying to say though is I don't know the process of converting money to ship to the US. Thanks though.

Thanks, but I have browsed their selection and they don't seem to have anything for tissue. They have tissue foil though. Though I can't even find tissue easily on the main one.

Machine-made tissue paper isn't available in large sizes (above ~20x26") as far as I'm aware. The one exception is Origami-Shop karape, which is roughly 24x36" but only comes in shades of brown. Your best bet might be to lay two smaller sheets side-by-side (with a half-inch or so of overlap).
