- White and Brown Kraft
Kraft is a German word that we could translate as strength. In fact, Kraft Paper is extremely resistant. The production process, called Kraft, consists of several mechanical and chemical steps. Through them, wood is turned into cellulose fibres and then paper. One of the most important characteristics of this process is that it keeps long cellulose fibres. This makes Kraft paper strong and tear resistant. This paper is naturally Brown but it can be blanched to make it White Kraft.
Choose this paper for custom carrier bags if you are looking for something robust. Brown or White depend on your brand identity. If, for example, your logo contains lots of black, Brown could be a great combination to give your customers an idea of simplicity and elegance. White Kraft could be better to enhance colours like red or blue.
- Ribbed Brown
Extremely versatile, this paper is called Ribbed because of its texture. This structure gives strength as well as scratch and shock resistance. Ribbed Paper is then perfect for delicate or larger objects. It can also be full printed.
Choose this paper for custom carrier bags if your priority is combining strength, resistance and simplicity. Your logo on Ribbed Brown Paper will look elegant and will have great visual impact.
Recycled paper is produced with industrial or household waste. This means that, following their collection and transformation, paper-made objects can have multiple lives. What makes recycling possible is the mix of properties of cellulose, which is the basic component of paper.
Choose this paper for custom carrier bags if you want an even stronger eco-friendly option.
Coated paper is made out of Kraft paper. The latter is further transformed through a series of chemical and mechanical tools; in order to have a smoother surface (coated). Consequently, strength and resistance of the Kraft process are maintained. And, at the same time, the smoother surface allows a higher printing definition as well as a softer touch.
Choose this paper for custom carrier bags if you need a great visual impact and a higher definition for even the smallest printed detail.
Duplex paper is made of two joined sheets. As it is composed of different layers, this kind of paper is even more resistant than Kraft and Ribbed for the same thickness (gsm). In addition, it is also smoother, as the two sheets have different characteristics.
Choose this paper for custom carrier bags if your product is valuable or delicate, like for example jewels or accessories. Duplex paper combined with the 8 colour flexographic printing will give great visual impact to your logo or custom design.
- Elastokraft (Kec)
It is the most fancier kind of paper for custom carrier bags. Through a special machine, Elastokraft paper is embossed.
The texture gives a feeling of sophisticated elegance, which makes it perfect for luxury brands.
