There is a metal hook at the top of our paper lanterns to use for hanging. If you want to hang
paper lanterns in a row without lights you can use your choice of strong string or fishing line. Fishing line
is virtually invisible and works well for hanging paper lanterns. If you want to add lights to your
lanterns, we do have
you can clip the lanterns onto. There is also the popular option of using our
battery operated LED lights
they have an elastic band at one end that can attach to the hook at the top of the lantern. Once attached
to the lantern, the LED's elastic band allows the light to dangle in the middle. Then hang the lantern with fishing line, string, etc.

Paper lanterns are typically measured at their diameter. Specifically, it's the length of a horizontal line that passes through the center of the lantern. For example, when a paper lantern is compressed down to its flat state, the diameter of the lantern would be measured from one side, through the center, to the other. Our paper lanterns come in even number sizes from 4 to 42 inches. [back to top]
Yes, the lanterns are packaged flat. In their packaging are instructions on how to open them and insert the metal frame. It's easy. [back to top]
The products that we ship are as close to the colors online as they can be. Our products are often hand dyed and there may be artistic differences from item to item because of this. Also, different computer screens can render colors a bit differently. [back to top]
Saa Paper (Mulberry Paper) is a traditional, sustainable paper made by hand in Thailand. Saa paper is water resistant and thicker and more durable than rice paper. Leave Saa paper parasols and fans open to dry. Saa paper is sustainable because the Mulberry Tree grows back the bark that is harvested for paper-making.[back to top]
LED stands for "Light Emitting Diode" and is a relatively new technology that generates light more efficiently than normal incandescent or even fluorescent bulbs. Because of this, LED lights can last significantly longer running on a battery than regular lights can. Our LED lights generate 3-15 lumens, depending on the specific product. One lumen is about the intensity of a normal candle flame, and can effectively illuminate about one square foot of space. [back to top]
Our LEDs will last about 12 hours on their batteries. The batteries can then be replaced. [back to top]
The date given is pending on customs and may be a few days before or a few days after the date given. If any big changes happen we will post it with the item. [back to top]
The best way to do this is to get some graph paper and imagine that every little square represents one foot of your tent or room. Draw your entire space and the major features it will contain, like your tables, the dance floor, food tables etc. Next, draw little circles where you want to hang your lanterns. Then you can count the circles for a lantern total. [back to top]
No, unfortunately we do not personalize items. We would recommend finding someone who does calligraphy, or possibly a printing company in your area. [back to top]
