What is Tarpapel/Tarp Papel/Tarp Paper?
Tarpapel, Tarp Papel, or Tarp Paper (from the word “Tarpaulin” a heavy-duty plastic material commonly used in printing, and “Papel” or “Paper” in English) is a low-cost alternative to tarpaulin printing.

Unlike the usual Tarpaulin Printing that requires a large printer, the tarpapel can be made using the common printer in our home, office, or school. As for the paper for printing, you can use your ordinary bond paper. This is the reason why this was called a low-cost alternative.
