Why is wrapping paper so expensive?


Why is wrapping paper so expensive?

Quick comparison of wrapping paper pricing:

width length price price per m^2
John Sands 0.7 2 $6.00 $4.29 Incredible rip off
Wrapco 0.5 60 $44.00 $1.47 used for store wrapping. Presumably good weight
$2 shop 0.7 2 $2.00 $1.43 Thin paper
White paper A4 0.21 0.297 $0.01 $0.16 5 reams = $24.45
Coloured paper A4 0.21 0.297 $0.02 $0.35 1 ream = $10.98
Coloured paper A3 0.297 0.42 $0.06 $0.50 1 ream = $31.14

Maybe I’ll just buy coloured A3 paper from now on and forego the gloss finish?
