Counterfeit Papers

COUNTERFEIT ROLLING PAPERS ARE HIGHLY DANGEROUS.

WARNING: WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THE SAFETY AND PRODUCT QUALITY OF COUNTERFEIT PAPERS SOLD BY THIRD-PARTY RETAILERS.

NOTORIOUS COUNTERFEIT RETAILERS INCLUDE WISH.COM, DHgate, AND ALIBABA. DO NOT PURCHASE $100 ROLLING PAPERS FROM THESE SITES.

Here at Empire Rolling, we are firmly dedicated to stamping out the threat that counterfeit rolling papers pose to your health and well-being. In addition to compromising your health, counterfeiting harms designers, artists, and brands around the world, and preserving the creative rights of all innovators and entrepreneurs is one of our treasured guiding principles.

Counterfeit papers may contain synthetic dyes, non-plant materials, and a variety of other additives that should never be ignited or inhaled. Smoking counterfeit papers could introduce toxic materials into your body, and these papers could cause diseases like emphysema, lung cancer, mouth cancer, or throat cancer.

Our respect for the value of creativity and the sanctity of intellectual property has led us to take a firm stance against any destructive forces that violate the skills of the craftsmen who make our papers and the creativity of the artists who produce our designs. Intellectual property theft undermines the love and care that we have put into building our company, and support of counterfeiting legitimizes unregulated and dangerous manufacturing conditions that trample on human rights and further barbaric practices like forced and child labor.

Here at Empire Rolling, we have built a reputation of producing all-natural, plant-based, and rigorously tested rolling papers, and counterfeiting leads smokers around the world who love our products to try knock-off papers that could damage their health. Please report any instances of counterfeiting that you uncover. All such reports are given top priority by the Empire Rolling Intellectual Property Department, and after examination of your report, we will take swift action to eliminate the threat that counterfeiting poses to the public. Your conscientious efforts in reporting counterfeit papers are highly appreciated.

How to Recognize a Genuine Empire Rolling Paper

Watermarks

Every genuine Empire Rolling Paper bears the following three watermarks:

  1. Our unique logo is stamped on the blue strip along the length of the paper
  2. The placard below the bust reads “Benny” instead of “Franklin”
  3. The seal on each package of Empire Rolling Papers bears a gold hologram

Burning Performance

All of our papers are made from natural, high-quality flax, hemp, or wood fibers. Due to the care we take in formulating our papers, they burn evenly and consistently. It’s usually possible to tell the difference between a genuine Empire Rolling Paper and a counterfeit by feel; if you hold a paper between your fingers and it feels synthetic or flimsy, it may not be genuine. Counterfeit papers generally burn faster than they should, and they may let off noxious odors while burning.

Seal Effectiveness

The seals on our papers are made from 100 percent natural gum arabic, which provides a strong and effective seal. If the glue on your paper doesn’t stick, it may not be genuine.

Other factors that you should look out for when determining whether or not your papers are genuine are packaging quality, the number of leaves in the package, and the overall appearance of the papers. If you’re concerned that your papers aren’t genuine, please contact us immediately. We guarantee that we will prosecute the counterfeiters to the fullest extent of our abilities.
