PAPER - Building Blocks 1o1
SUBSTRATE/MATERIAL - WHAT WILL YOUR BAG BE MADE OF?
Available in both Standard Substrates, which are stock options, and Specialized Substrates which allow for
more customization but require a larger MOQ and longer leadtimes.
STANDARD SUBSTRATES:
NATURAL KRAFT - A type of natural paper that has no coating and is normally natural/brown in color.
WHITE KRAFT - A type of natural paper that has no coating and has gone through a bleaching process.
40% PCR NATURAL KRAFT
40% PCR WHITE KRAFT
COATED KRAFT PAPER
BLACK KRAFT PAPER (Beater Dyed, Un-Coated)
ONE SIDE COATED WHITE ART PAPER
WHITE ART PAPER
IVORY ART PAPER
SPECIALIZED SUBSTRATES:
BEATER DYED PAPER - A type of paper that is dyed in the manufacturing process when the material is still a
slurry, resulting in a paper that is a solid color all the way through the paper. If cut or ripped, the inside of the
sheet or fiber is colored the same as the outside
COLOR FLOOD COATED PAPER - A type of paper to which a thin layer of ink is applied uniformly (flooding)
in order to achieve a certain color (coating). If cut or ripped, the inside of the sheet or fiber is NOT colored the
same as the outside.
ART & CRAFT PAPER* - a type of paper with a more artistic quality due to it’s texture and/or color composition. *Must provide a physical sample that we can use to locate a match.
DURABILITY MATTERS
Durability requirements are dependent on the bag’s intended use. Take a moment to reflect on the type of
items that will be going into the bag to help you form an idea of how durable it must be. The common unit
of measure for our standard substrates is:
GSM (grams per square meter) - a metric unit of density used to measure the thickness of fabric or paper.
A high GSM renders a thicker more sturdy and durable bag.
COLOR IMPACTS
“Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” - Wassily Kandinsky
Commonly, custom paper bags will use a standard substrate without the need for additional coloring. In
some cases, there is need for color and/or even texture. In these cases, it is likely that the coloring will take
place via the imprinting process. However, there are also instances when the material substrate itself must
undergo colorization in order to achieve the desired end look; for this we offer specialized substrates that
can be Beater Dyed or Color Flood Coated. In rare cases, Art & Craft paper can be used, granted that we
are provided a physical sample that we can use to locate a match.
A Paper Bags is constructed from one single piece of material and therefore there is only the option of a
single color. If your project requires that there be more than a singe color (example: main panels in Blue
with gussets in Purple) you can achieve this through the imprinting process. More on that in our section for
Imprinting Capabilities.
COLOR OPTIONS - Basic/popular colors are covered within our standard substrate offering. However, if
you require a different color then simply tell us what you need! Please do indicate either a PMS match
number or specific CMYK match values to ensure correct color matching. Please note that jobs requiring
specialized substrates may result in a larger MOQ and longer lead times.
