FAQs

  • Does Instawrap® have any taste?

  • Is Instawrap® safe?
  • Yes. Instawrap® meets the requirements of BS EN 71-3: 2013 + A1:2014 (meets safety requirements for children’s toys) & is FDA approved.
  • Why is it called Instawrap®?
  • The name Instawrap® is intended to define a key benefit of the product; in the sense that it can be used instantly by itself, without the requirement of sticky tape.
  • Do I have to lick it?
  • No. Instawrap® can be activated by the smallest amount of water based moisture if you prefer, but it’s easy and good fun to lick and stick, so give it a go. The best applicator we have found is the every-day cotton bud.
  • What if the present gets wet?
  • If the present gets wet the rain would activate the glue in that area, when it subsequently dries, any tack would disappear and its appearance would revert to its original form. With Instawrap®, the glue absorbs the moisture meaning the paper has some protection from raindrops unlike most conventional wrapping paper. Like with any wrapped gifts we would always recommend protecting your Instawrapped present from the rain.

  • The energy you would have to expend licking enough paper to worry about calories, is more than you could consume from the paper itself.
