Things to Consider When Buying Paper Hand Fans

  • Color: Most paper hand fans are limited to a one-color imprint unless specified otherwise. This means that you should view our selection of full-color paper hand fans if you have full-color artwork. Also, the fans are white. Some product photos feature two- and three-color imprints, so bear this in mind when shopping for your personalized paper hand fans.
  • Sandwich vs. Non-Sandwich: When buying paper hand fans, you should consider whether you want a standard fan—i.e., a single-side imprint where the handle is exposed—or a sandwich fan, which includes a second piece of cardboard to cover the handle. Sandwich fans cost a bit more than non-sandwich ones, but that extra expense leads to a more durable fan. Remember, all pricing listed on the website is for a standard non-sandwich fan.
  • Shape/Theme: InkHead carries a paper hand fans in a variety of stock shapes to suit almost any occasion. Be sure to use the Themes filter to view items such as patriotic paper hand fans or religious paper hand fans. We also carry fans that can be cut to your own custom shape!
  • Handle Fastening: If you have a preference between adhesive or staples, be sure to let us know. We will make sure that your fans are fastened together exactly the way you want. Generally speaking, our Aakron Rule paper hand fans are stapled, and those from Ventura Line are glued.
  • Production Times: Most paper hand fans take around 5 business days to produce, however rush production service is available on Ventura Line Paper Hand Fans. Aside from our free rush production paper hand fans, production times for rush paper hand fans include 24-hour, 2-day, 3-day, and 4-day. Be advised that rush production on fans generally costs extra and may not be available on extremely large orders.
  • Quantity: Most fans require a quantity of at least 100 pieces. Remember, paper hand fans may be easily misplaced, so make sure to order extras if you’re using them in a multi-day event/promotion.
