BOX COVER DESIGN TIPS 5 : The art of designing Victorian Christmas cards led to development of artistic gift wraps. Victorian Christmas papers were intricately printed and ornamented with lace and ribbon. Decorated boxes, loose bags, and coronets bore cutout illustrations of Father Christmas, robins, angels, holly boughs and other seasonal decorations. Often, the gift-wrapping papers matched cards in design, and the association of the two has carried through to today. Developments in printing presses allowed endless sheets of wrapping paper to be printed with consistent quality. The flexography process patented in England in 1890 combined very fluid inks with rubber plates wrapped around the print cylinder to make a printing process ideally suited to coarse or stiff papers that were durable enough for wrapping. The rotary system prints exceptional lengths of printed paper that are rolled on cardboard rolls or cut into smaller sheets.
