antique player piano paper 

Cost – $12. each

Note: Due to the odd shape and size of the piano roll boxes, shipping within Canada is a flat rate of $20. 

For shipping outside Canada, or if you are wanting to purchase multiple rolls, please email me at

Item Details: Player piano paper is a wonderful addition to your creative projects! 

The paper is approximately 12-13 inches wide, with rolls being as long as 25 and up to 80 feet. 

The perforated paper is 60 gsm Kraft; you’ll need to reinforce it with other paper (I use grocery bags or book pages) to give it weight and structure. I love the look of these in my book and journal pages, and think you will too!


The video below by artist Amity Bloom contains some beautiful and inspirational ideas on how to use piano paper (along with the boxes they come in!).
