High-quality paper for your carrier bags
For the printing of the carrier bags we use, among other things, the proven coated art paper in a grammage of 140 to 240 gsm in the glossy or matt version. The particularly strong kraft paper has a high tear/tensile strength due to the long cellulose fibres it contains. You can choose between 70 - 200 gsm (brown), 100 - 120 gsm (brown ribbed) and 70 - 170 gsm (white). Depending on the degree of lignin contained, the colour of the paper ranges from white to brown. Due to its open-pored surface, printing inks are more strongly absorbed. As a result, the print result appears less radiant than on coated paper. In contrast to most other papers, it is water-repellent to a certain degree.
As "green" natural papers we offer the 185 gsm apple paper and the 200 gsm grass paper. In the case of apple paper, up to 15% dried apple pomace is added to the wood cellulose. This gives the material a creamy colour and a velvety feel. Grass paper is an environmentally friendly alternative in its production, in which the proportion of grass fibres can be up to 40%, depending on the intended use. Depending on further processing, contact of the material with dry, low-fat food is unproblematic, it can be recycled and composted. Allergy sufferers need not worry, grass paper contains no allergens. The natural-coloured material has a structured, haptically perceptible surface. Since apple and grass paper is an organic material, the natural colouring can vary from batch to batch. Furthermore, the inherent colour of the paper influences the colours printed on it. A fruity scent or a light grass scent is possible, but this will fade over time.
Note: With the help of a finish you can give the paper additional protection and stability.
Top print quality for your carrier bags
We print your paper bags in the proven CMYK four-colour print or flexo print. In this way, all possibilities are open to you in the choice of motif and design. Whether simple symbols, your corporate design or photos, at print24.com we can print many different motifs on your bags. With CMYK printing we print on the outside, the inside remains unprinted. With flexo printing, you can use up to 2 spot colours. If you want flexo printing on both sides, the motif must be identical on the front and back. Please note the printing area and only use printing inks from the colour space PANTONE_U. Printing in white is possible, but with limited opacity. Metallic colours are not available.
However, if you have any questions about the print file provided or if you want to know which motifs or colours are particularly suitable for paper bag printing, you are welcome to contact our competent service staff by e-mail or telephone.
Refining the surface of your paper bags
If you like, you can have your bags’ paper laminated. This involves us applying an additional coating to the paper to make the bags stronger and more robust. Choosing matte lamination achieves a very elegant look. Glossy lamination, which is what most of our customers choose, is the classic refinement variant. You will also achieve a unique feel with linen-finish lamination.
In addition, you have the choice of combining cellophane lamination with hot foil embossing or UV spot varnish to create particularly spectacular effects. With hot foil embossing, a transfer foil is applied by heat and pressure to the previously defined areas. Depending on the foil used, different effects are achieved. The UV spot varnish provides glossy as well as perspective effects, but the varnish is only applied partially, i.e. on individual motifs, logos or lettering.
