Ordered 100 Silver Paper Hand Fans for summer wedding in Canada
This was a great buy as a wedding party favour. I was concerned with the risk of not seeing them in person before hand because some of the reviews made the quality seem bad but they were great, there are definitely poorer quality ones out there, so I am happy with how they arrived. They were all consistent in colour and construction.
ProsThey arrived fast and the package had tracking.
ConsStandard online shopping woes for Canadians: price in USD, courier shipping cost is high, and border tariff's = basically triple the price per on the website while you are browsing, not Paper Lanterns issue - more just a caution for any Canadians reading these reviews.

Sturdy fans - great purchase
These fans were purchased for a party in August. I thought they'd be a one-time-use item but to my surprise, they are very sturdy. I've been using mine for weeks now and it's still in good condition. Love them and can't beat the price!

Nice Ceremony Addition
Decent quality but 8 out of 50 defective however Paper Lantern quickly replaces them before the wedding! Pretty color on chairs to match royal blue them, may have preferred better grade of paper but price sold me!

Fell Apart
Ordered 50 for an event. About 10 of them fell apart. Seems as if the glue didn't hold the paper to the wood handle.

I'm a Fan.
These fans make a great addition to our outdoor event. In addition to providing our guests with a way to cool off, they add a touch of color and a considerate, much appreciated gesture in consideration of their comfort.
ProsLovely color, well made, prompt delivery, reasonably priced

Great for kid's birthday parties, but weddings...
Compared to other black paper hand fans available, this fan is lower quality... but it's also cheaper. The fan is difficult to fold and not that attractive (see photos). BUT if you are having an outdoor wedding, please give your guests something to stay cool with. These would also be great for events/parties with kids.
Proscheaper than other paper fans Both sides are covered, unlike other fans They do their job
Conslow quality paper difficult to fold

I bought these fans to get to guess at my wedding. The fans ones open are very difficult to close again.

Pretty, but not perfect
I ordered 40 fan in each of five (5) colors for favors for an upcoming fundraising luncheon, and was not disappointed with the colors, but had to inspect each fan, after opening the five of the fans, since two of the five had edges that were not glued evenly and edges hung over and had splinters or rough paper edges, which I had to trim. I ended up trimming quite a few of the 200 fans to make them presentable. Also they do not close well. I read the reviews before ordering and only saw a couple similar comments amongst the other very satisfied buyers, and thought there are always a few picky people. Wish I had ordered the fabric fans now, but the paper ones will do for a one or maybe 3-4 time use, if you don't mind helping them close by guiding the folds with your fingers.
ProsLovely bright colors at a reasonable price.
ConsSome edges not finished well and hard to open and close.

I had to send back all packages, they were poorly made, peeling and fans were stuck together. I was really excited about getting purple fans.

Inexpensive but decent fan
Bought about 15 of these as favors for my friend's baby shower. Ordered these last-minute, so really appreciated the super fast shipping (2-day), got them just in time. You have to use both hands to get these to open, they are quite stiff and they don't snap open like higher end fans, but I didn't expect them to, for this price, which is great when you're on a budget. Once open, they are just like a regular fan, and are very welcome on a hot day!! Would definitely order again.
ProsLook great, nice color, inexpensive, fast shipping
Consstiff and need both hands to open

Surprisingly Strong
These little paper fans push a lot of air and last much longer than other site's fans. I trust PLS and as this was not my first purchase of these paper fans, it certainly won't be the last. I use these to pair up with my cosplay at various conventions around the nation. I don't just use these for decorations, I actually put these fans through their paces. These are also great for outdoor Renaissance Fairs or even a sunny hot day at a Theme Park. I sometimes use these as shades. They block the sun from beaming down on my fair skin.
ProsDurable for a paper fan Moves Air Well Comfortable in hand
ConsIt's paper Won't last as long as the silks.

Works just fine!
I ordered these for my upcoming wedding to give guests in case it's uncomfortably hot. The color was as shown in the picture. I've bought nice quality paper fans before that will stand the test of time. These are not them. However, they should definitely last through the day and keep guests cool. If you want one as a keepsake, order an extra just in case.

Not up to normal quality .
Have ordered fans before for another wedding. They were excellent ! These were of poorer quality material and the color was spotted with with dots. I could not use some of them.....some of them would not close due to the fact that the wooden pieces were splintered.
ProsThe delivery was fast!...they arrived in just a few days. The web site was easy and User friendly

Perfect for our Wedding!
The color of this fan is gorgeous and is practically a perfect match to David's Bridal "Spa" color I am using for the bridesmaid's dresses. For the price the quality is good and sturdy. The fan opens and stays open unlike some that are so lose you have to concentrate to hold it open while fanning. The only flaw I noticed in these fans is you don't want to automatically use it on your face because there are loose partials from the bamboo that could get in your eyes. Just open them up and shake them out a bit before using. These are a great buy, good quality, and worth every penny.

Not consistent
I ordered two fans. They were two glaringly different shades of yellow. I get that they may have been done at different factories or in different bundles, but the person packaging the product could have chosen two with the same shade....
