Unique Event Decorations

The custom bunting that we make is actually called papel picado and is a Mexican artform. Our custom bunting is art. It is rare to find papel picado outside of Mexico, and even more rare to find it custom-made - so using Mexican custom bunting as part of your party or event’s decorations will help to make it an unforgettable and unique event.

It really is such an amazing undiscovered branding solution, as it is customisable in every way possible!

We specialize in custom bunting for trade shows and other big events, such as weddings and company branding/marketing events.

Our customers use our custom decorative bunting to totally transform their venue and create an unforgettable event.

We had the honour of being chosen by David Stark Design to make the custom bunting for the esteemed 2019 Brooklyn Artists Ball, the most inspiring event of the art world held in the Brooklyn Museum, New York. Check out our blog about their custom bunting here:

Branded Event Bunting

Whether it be a brand logo in its brand colours for a company event, or the names of a couple being celebrated at their wedding or anniversary, or company slogans, the combinations and possibilities are endless. We really can make whatever designs your imagination can think up!

Our custom garlands are a striking and creative way to decorate a marketing event and encourage brand awareness that is sure to make a long-lasting impression.

Custom Bunting Flag Designs

Our artists are absolutely incredible at recreating logos and images into the flag designs.

Your custom flags can bear just about any logo, image or text you can think of. And they can be repeated along the garlands in the order of your choice.

Our client sent us the elaborate Magic of Morocco logo shown in the section above, and we made the intricate custom bunting flag shown here above. You can see that our artists really have fun with their art and put a lot of love into their creations.

If you prefer, you can create your own custom flag designs and send them to us in PDF format in either of the two flag sizes below:

Large Flags: 48cm x 31cm (19" x 12.25") - there are 18 flags per 10m/32.8ft of garland - THIS IS THE SIZE WE USUALLY RECOMMEND FOR CUSTOM BUNTING

Medium Flags: 34cm x 22cm / 13.5" x 8.75" (there are 24 flags per 10m/32.8ft of garland) - HOWEVER this size is better for smaller spaces, with lower ceilings, or if the bunting will be hung directly in front of products, like bottles in a bar.

Bunting Design Ideas - Digital MockUps

With so many colour and customisable options available, you can be as creative as you want to be with our custom bunting.

When considering custom bunting design ideas, keep in mind that papel picado will not only dazzle the guests attending your event, but will stand out in photographs and social media posts from your party.

Once you have placed your order, email us your PDF files to aprylle@ and our artists will make digital mockups of the flags for you. We make very slight alterations if necessary, to make them work properly as papel picado flags.

We will then send you the digital mockups, and won't start production until you have signed them off.

About Mexican Custom Bunting

In vibrant Mexico, it is common to encounter papel picado bunting lining the streets, ceilings and walls at parties, weddings, celebrations and during festive holidays.

This traditional Mexican bunting depicts a wide variety of themes and displays an infinite possibility of messages and images.

If you wish you can include traditional Mexican flag designs in your custom bunting garlands. We have flag designs of flowers, birds, butterflies, cactus, sun, sombrero, boots, and many mix in with your logo or other custom flag designs, and make your garlands look authentically Mexican.

Aprylle can send you lots of beautiful traditional flag designs to choose from.

About The Artists

Our Mexican bunting is authentic and handmade in Mexico by skilled artisans and master craftsmen who use the traditional method of cutting custom designs into the paper or plastic flags using a hammer and a variety of chisels of all shapes and sizes.

This Mexican folk art is a time-honoured tradition whose origins can be traced back to Aztec culture. The methods and skills these artisans employ to make custom bunting are passed down from generation to generation - entire families are involved in the production process.

Our artists are based in Mexico City and in Puebla, the state widely regarded as the birthplace of papel picado. We are proud to support and promote the production and dissemination of this intrinsic part of Mexican tradition and culture, encouraging permanence for the indigenous communities that keep this tradition alive and ensuring their livelihood for generations to come.
