The eco-friendly, natural look of kraft paper creates a feel all on it’s own.  Most kraft paper is made from 99% post consumer recycled material making it not only visually appealing but easy on the environment. The natural look and feel of kraft paper  changes the overall look and feel of a simple print design.

Kraft paper is great and a lot of people have been very successful using it for their packaging but kraft paper can have it’s limitations.
Limitations of Kraft Paper:
  • It is often hart to get the color to pop on kraft paper because of the light brown base and the course feel .
  • Sometimes the kraft paper is not thick enough for the product
  • A heavier coating might needed for their specific product that cannot be applied to kraft paper
  • There are a limited amount of kraft paper looks or offerings
