KRAFT PAPER PRINTING | NYC
Looking for kraft paper printing on recycled paper? Publicide has you covered, both for environmentally conscious printing and for adding an earth-friendly appeal to your printing collateral. Kraft paper stock has an authentic natural look and feel that is unmistakably recycled and ecologically sound. Commercial kraft board and chipboard papers are unbleached, so they usually range in color from dark to mid-range brown, usually on the warmer side, they are sometimes a little cool — it all depends on what goes into the particular batch. Because commercial boards are not regulated for color, density or texture, we’re not able to request specific kraft colors (see below for Fine Recycled Paper!). Letterpress printing and Foil Stamping work great with most textured kraft papers, with the added benefit of printing on almost any thickness. Letterpress business cards work great on thick kraft papers because they can be double-sided without the artwork showing through from the printing pressure. Commercial kraft papers print great for business cards, invitations + recycled garment tag projects as well.
KRAFT PAPER TYPES
For those seeking a more refined look for their custom printing projects we recommend Fine Kraft Paper options which come in colors ranging from very dark brown kraft up through lighter yellow—even white! Fine paper doesn’t come in the heavy thicknesses of commercial kraft board, but it has the benefit of quality control, which keeps color, texture and density the same from batch to batch. Fine Papers are usually viable in a range of thicknesses also, for matching business stationery and envelopes. And finally some Fine Kraft Papers are made in textures, sizes + thicknesses that can be used for digital printing!

RECYCLED PAPER PRICING + PRINT PRODUCTION NOTES
Pricing for recycled paper print jobs is based on quantity, paper type and the number of processes and machines that will be used in creating your order. More elaborate and custom print specs cost considerably more than standard orders, so it’s important to get your quote before proceeding. Production time varies with order complexity and our seasonal workload but our elastic schedule allows for very fast rush prints when required, though rush charges apply. Turnaround time is calculated from the date of PDF proof approval. If your kraft paper print project has a hard due-date please let us know when making your request. Email us with your design file or specs to receive a custom quote for your printing project. All projects must have a custom quote number to proceed.
Some kraft papers are available for rush printing service. To inquire about a rush job, please email artwork, print specifications and desired completion date ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we’re able to accommodate your schedule we will reply with pricing and additional costs for the rush. Rush black card printing is one of our specialties but please be aware that every moment counts in a rush print schedule. Some jobs will require additional shifts and weekend work to finish on time so the price can be significantly higher than jobs on a regular schedule.
