Introduction: Printable Coin Wrappers
Print your own coin wrappers and save a trip to the store if you just need a few.
Printouts from the attached PDF or Powerpoint file
Print out the sheet or sheets you need and cut each wrapper out more or less precisely along the outer edge as shown in the yellow note box in the upper right corner of the picture.
Step 1: Fold
Fold the wrapper roughly one third of the way down to show the alignment mark. Fold it squarely by aligning the edges.
Step 2: Align and Tape
Now fold the bottom up and align the edges. Tape it. The tape doesn't have to go all the way to the edges but it should overlap both sides of the seam fairly evenly. You can just barely make out the tape in the photo.
That's it, the wrapper is ready to use. Open it up, stick a finger in one end as a stopper, put coins in. The shaded area is the height of the stack. Fold over the ends. Take to bank.
My printer is pretty accurate maintaining the actual dimensions laid out in the powerpoint and PDF files, but if you find your wrapper is a bit too tight leave a little gap when you align the edges for taping. Overlap more if it seems a little loose.
Step 3: Making Your Own Sizes
If the denominations in the attached files are not what you need you can modify the Powerpoint file for the coin sizes you need.
The two dimensions of the shaded area are these:
1) Height of the coin stack you want to wrap
- this is the dimension along the direction of the text, horizontal in the cut-out example below outlined in the yellow notes box.
2) Diameter of the coin times pi (3.1416) is the vertical dimension in the example below.
The box at the bottom with the alignment mark can be kept the same size for any coin size
The blank boxes on the sides should be made larger or smaller with the coin diameter since these are the fold-overs for the ends of the coin stack.
You can add your own background pattern or image for the shaded area, I only have B&W; printing right now so these are a bit boring.
