Reasons for using Kraft paper in packaging
Kraft bags, which are mostly seen outside of Iran, are one of the methods of packaging products that have been very popular with people for two reasons:
- Since the earth is the home of all of us humans and our duty is to maintain this planet, then in order to perform our human duties, it is necessary to use packs that have the least threat to nature, and this is considered the first advantage.
- The second advantage of durability in the memory of people is maintaining the quality of packaging, especially in the case of export, the stylish and beautiful appearance of the pack, because during long distances, the product may be damaged, which Kraft prevents from such an event.
How is the printing process applied to Kraft?
As a general rule, bright colors that cannot be seen should not be used in the graphic design of Kraft packaging. One of the most beautiful designs in Kraft printing is the use of post-printing services such as embossing, gold plating, and silver plating. These services can reflect an attractive effect on Kraft cardboard. This work can preserve the beauty and natural texture of the cardboard and the color contrast created in it on the brown background can be very attractive.

In addition, it is possible to implement any design with various colors on the packaging, because this printing does not have any restrictions on the choice of design and color.

Why is Kraft cardboard better than regular paper?
Kraft paper is much stronger than regular paper due to the reduced amount of Lignin (a substance in the paper’s chemical pulp texture). Also, in the structure of this type of paper, bleach is not used as much as white paper which makes this material strong and reduces its costs.
Notice: Kraft is produced and supplied in two forms, rolls, and sheets, which you can use depending on your needs. Note that buying a roll of Kraft is much more economical than buying it in the form of sheets or sheets because in the roll type, the number of circulations has increased and this will cause the price of Kraft cardboard to be cheaper.
