Money packets are an exceptional advertising tool. The culture of giving money packets originated from the Chinese community. In Chinese, they are known as “Ang Pau”, and were gradually adopted by the Malays and Indians. They are now widely used for monetary gifts. Money packets epitomize good wishes and luck, and are a way to extend blessings to the people receiving them.

Most commonly, money packets are handed out to friends and family during social and family gatherings such as weddings, as well as important festive occasions such as Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Aidilfitri, and Deepavali. In business too, many companies give out free money packets to their customers or partners during the festive season.

Designing and Configuring your DIY Money Packets

It’s easy to print DIY Money Packets on our website. You can configure your DIY money packets completely according to your preference, based on the choice of available options  - which paper material, refinement, finishing, and more. Informative/descriptive videos are embedded in our dropdown menus in order to assist you in making the right choice.

To design your DIY money packets, we recommend downloading our dedicated template, available here.

The illustration above shows the dimension of our diy money packet template for your reference.

Furthermore, we provide two refinement options for your DIY money packets: either die cut or self-cut. With the die cut option, you will skip the hassle of having to cut out the packets, and can just focus on doing the folding. If you’d like to have more fun and do the cutting yourself as well, you can choose the self-cut option.


Submission of your design.

If you choose to print on both sides, you will have to submit 2 files to us.

**Do note that the back die-cut needs to be flipped horizontally, along with a design that matches the dimensions of the back die-cut

Remember to send your artwork file in PDF file format for optimal results. We do accept other file formats. After you have made and submitted your order and artwork to us, you can start anticipating your order to arrive at your doorstep!

Now, happy DIY Money Packet printing!
