Papel picado is the name given to the tissue paper flags chiseled with a variety of patterns and used to decorate buildings, Day of the Dead altars and streets during a variety of celebrations in Mexico. The pattern used depends on the celebration and can be related to the Day of the Dead, Christmas, Independence Day, a Patron Saint, or any special event you wish.

For many corporate groups visiting Mexico on their incentive trip, custom paper picado is a unique decor detail used to deliver a custom branding detail of the company logo, special phrase or tag line specific to the corporation. Your company’s welcome to Mexico fiesta will come alive with custom papel picado flags detail and can be created using any brand colors you like.

Here’s how it works…

  • 1Custom papel picado is sold by the meter and includes delivery, set up and tear down. We will start by getting the size of your venue space and give you a quote from there.
  • 2Once we establish your venue space, we will ask for any special art work, logos, tagline or special phrase you would like displayed in your custom papel picado. We are also happy to create the artwork for you. Once we establish the art work and branding, we will send you a mock up for approval. Once the art work is approved, we will arrive early on your event day and hang your custom papel picado in the area you would like. White market lights are the perfect compliment to any custom papel picado set up. Ask us about our many options!
  • 3We plan your experience from top to bottom and will deliver a turn key experience on the day. You can focus on your goals and we will do the same. We Build Great Teams and we are easy to work with. Period.

“Grupo has helped us plan our company’s annual retreat twice now. The first time, they only helped plan a few things, but this second time we relied on them to help us with nearly every aspect of the planning. Jordan is incredibly responsive and he and Estefania handled all our quirks and last minute changes with so much patience. They and their team are also amazing on site. I highly recommend them and won’t hesitate to work with them in the future!”
