FAQ


Is there a discount for ordering large quantities? 

We are happy to offer discounts for ordering larger quantities of each design, please email us with your requirements and we will provide you with a price. 

Can I stock your papers in my shop or online web-shop? 

You certainly can, and we give a trade discount to those selling our sheets.

What paper stock do you use? 

The majority of papers are marbled onto a Buttermilk coloured Wibalin which is a 120g long grain paper. Short grain paper can be used on large orders if required. 

Paper size is 510mm x 750mm. We do also have designs on white, red and fawn base paper. Other colours / weights / grains can be ordered in specially, but will cost a little more per sheet. For large orders we can order in short grain especially. Alternative paper weights can also be available and we often marble on to 90gsm should you need a lighter stock. 

What papers are in your assorted bundles?

Our assorted bundles contain a selection of individual sheets from our current stock which comprise a very large selection of different patterns and colour-ways. Most of these will not be our 63 standard designs, but rather ‘one-off’ papers from larger runs and special design work. 

What is the difference between first and second quality?

Seconds are discounted as they contain some form of minor flaw. In most cases it is an air bubble, but it could also be a small blemish from the marbling process or the sheet may be a little smaller in size. 

Seconds are fairly rare though and we don’t always have many in stock, and the variety of these sheets is much less than with the firsts. 

Why is Pattern no. 7 so expensive? 

Pattern no. 7 has been ‘Double Marbled’ this means the whole process has been completed twice 

Do prices include vat and carriage?

The prices you see listed next to the items in our online store include VAT. If you order outside of the online store, prices will be quoted plus VAT. In all instances carriage will be added on as extra. 

Jemma Lewis Marbling & Design is a VAT registered business (reg number 946 6349 83)

For customers from the UK and EU, products will include VAT at the standard rate.

Customers outside the UK and EU will have the VAT element of their payment refunded by us via PayPal.

Can you match an antique marbled paper?

We do offer a matching service so please send us a sample piece of the paper you would like matched (where possible an actual piece is always better that a photograph) and we shall get as close as we can to your original. As this is lengthy process we ask for a minimum of 5 sheets. If you are happy to have something generally similar, then there is no minimum order quantity. Each sheet is charged at £8.50 + vat and carriage. 

Can you produce a bespoke design? 

We love to produce bespoke papers and work on special commissions so please get in touch with your brief and requirements, and we can give you a quotation for this specialised service. 

Do you sell marbling supplies?

We sell a good range of materials for marbling and these can be found in our store. All materials we sell are the same as used here in our workshop.

How are papers dispatched.

Most of the time we use Couriers, UPS or Hermes, but we do also use Royal Mail. We try to use the best and most economical method depending upon your destination and the weight and size of the parcel being sent. 

How are the Marbled papers sent? 

Papers are sent rolled, and inside a postal tube if approx. 20 sheets or less. Orders containing over approx. 100 sheets are sent flat. 

Do you make miniature Marbled papers? 

From time to time little bundles of miniature papers will be added to the store. These are on very light-weight 45g paper

Are the Marbled Papers coated with anything? 

The papers are not given any treatment as standard, but for £3.00 per sheet we can wax the papers by hand with two coats of beeswax. This increases durability but does not make the papers appear shiny or glossed. 

Can I visit?

Personal visitors to our workshop are more than welcome but please telephone beforehand to let us know when you will be arriving and to check we are available. You will be able to browse our selection of first and second quality marbled papers to find the patterns and colours you are looking for, and purchase them at favourable prices.
