Great size
These will be hung in our barn for our wedding. They are a great size. Directions are clear. Would have rated a 5 but all the metal hangers have to have end loops bent more otherwise don't stay put very well. Will be a bit of extra work I wasn't planning to have to do.

20" white rice paper lantern
This particular size of lantern simply isn't available in New Zealand. After months of searching possible sources, I finally found the Paper Lantern website and placed an order. From this point on, communication was excellent, information updates made promptly, receipts forwarded and the lanterns arrived carefully packaged, much earlier than expected. I could not fault a single aspect of the process and am delighted with the lanterns purchased.
ConsCost of postage!

Love it
I needed something to shade a small ceiling fan. This works perfectly. I could not use the brace in the middle, but this just hangs there like it was made for it.

Great look and an even better value!
I ordered 18 x 18" paper lanterns for our poolside garden reception and they looked great! They truly looked like they cost 2-3 times as much (I really shopped around), the expedited shipping was reasonable and timely. I would definitely recommend this item and this vendor. Tip: I used spools of 80# fishing line to hang them between the house and nearby tall trees. To keep them from sliding around, I tied a satin ribbon around the line and top of the lantern (ribbon in our wedding colors w/enough length for the ribbons to flutter in the breeze). We used a long handled garden take to move them into position.
ProsSuper great value, amazingly simple to assemble, great look
ConsProduct is great, just be sure to set aside extra time as its a bit of a process getting the lines up and lanterns in place.

Interesting Version
I like that this is different from the plain white lanterns I've replaced regularly over the years. This is in my kitchen. The only thing that prevented a 5 star rating is that I can't make the inner wire frame stretch to it's fullest - it's slightly bent still. That doesn't affect anything really and I love the overall appearance.

Good not great
What I received was the right size and not bad but the craftsmanship was not great. Some edges were raw with bits of paper hanging loose.
ProsSize & price. It also gives off a really beautiful glow.
ConsCraftsmanship could be much neater.

Excellent Service, Excellent Product!!
I've been looking for this product for a while but Paper Lantern Store was the only store which would sell a single paper lantern. All the other stores sold only in lots of ten. When I researched a couple of the other online lantern stores, there were customer complaints that the lanterns arrived damaged. The 36" paper lantern which Paper Lantern Store sent me arrived on time and in excellent condition. The cord I ordered also arrived in excellent condition. Many many thanks.
ProsOn time delivery. Well-packaged. No problems whatsoever.

paper lanterns: Light and airy
The paper lanterns add such a bright and delightful appearance to a room. Ultimately easy to put up the room is quickly transformed. They last for years, and when they finally need to be replaced the order comes through immediately. Best bargain, ever.

Get what you pay for
The paper part of the lantern is of good quality but the metal insert bent and broke while trying to hang the thing up on the first try.
Merchant Response:Hello Sarah, I apologize for the metal insert you got, occasionally the solder points on the metal inserts are not welding together good, so they break. We will have addressed this issue with the manufacturer and hopefully they are more sturdy now. We would be glad to send you a replacement insert. Thanks, Michelle CSR Rep.
ProsEasy, cheap
ConsCheap, shipping fees are a little ridiculous

The metal insert that is supposed to hold the lantern open is quite flimsy, so the paper is not pulled as tight as I would like.
