Printing on Kraft Paper

The Rustic Charm and Eco-Friendly Nature of Kraft Paper

At After Hours Creative Studio, we've embraced the distinctive appeal of kraft paper, combining it with advanced printing techniques to create products that are not only eco-friendly but also visually striking. The natural, unbleached appearance of kraft paper, with its rustic charm and warm tones, provides a unique canvas for printing, allowing colours to stand out in a way that conventional papers cannot match.

The process of printing on kraft paper is an art in itself. Given its unique texture and color, it requires precise techniques to ensure that the final product is as vibrant and detailed as intended. At our studio, we specialize in digital printing on kraft paper, which allows for high-quality, full-colour results. Whether it's intricate designs, bold graphics, or subtle hues, digital printing can faithfully reproduce these on the distinctive kraft background.

Kraft Paper: Perfect for Diverse Business Needs

Kraft paper’s versatility is one of its most compelling attributes, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of business applications. At After Hours Creative Studio, we've harnessed the potential of kraft paper to create stunning, memorable products for our clients. Whether it’s for business cards, swing tags, invitations, or wedding stationery, kraft paper adds a unique touch that sets these items apart.

Business cards printed on kraft paper immediately stand out. They exude a natural, organic feel that is especially appealing to businesses that want to project an image of authenticity and eco-friendliness. The sturdy nature of our 350gsm and 700gsm kraft paper ensures that these cards are not only visually appealing but also durable and tactile.

Swing tags made from kraft paper carry a similar rustic charm. They are perfect for clothing brands, artisanal products, and other retail items, offering a touch of sophistication and earthiness. The textured surface of kraft paper provides a great canvas for branding, making these tags not just informational but also an integral part of the product’s aesthetic.

When it comes to invitations and wedding stationery, kraft paper offers a warm, inviting backdrop. Its natural look and feel add a personal, intimate touch to any event announcement, making it a popular choice for couples looking for something unique for their special day.

Digital printing on kraft paper, especially with the addition of white ink, brings a new dimension to the design. White ink printing adds a striking contrast to the natural brown of kraft paper, highlighting key elements of the design.

Elevating Kraft Paper with Exquisite Finishing Options

At After Hours Creative Studio, we believe that the final touches on a product can make all the difference. That's why we offer a range of finishing options for our kraft paper products, each designed to enhance and elevate the natural appeal of the material. These finishing techniques not only add a touch of luxury and distinction but also allow for a higher degree of customization, ensuring that each product we create is as unique as the business it represents.

Foil Stamping: This process involves applying a thin layer of metallic or pigmented foil to the kraft paper. It's perfect for adding a shimmering, high-end look to logos, accents, or text. The contrast between the foil and the earthy kraft paper creates a striking visual impact, ideal for businesses looking to stand out.

Embossing and Debossing: Embossing raises selected areas of the paper, while debossing creates an indented effect. Both techniques add texture and depth, making the tactile experience of holding a kraft paper product even more engaging. This is particularly effective for business cards or invitations, where first impressions are crucial.

Edge Gilding: This involves applying a metallic finish to the edges of the paper, providing a subtle yet luxurious border. Edge gilding on kraft paper business cards or invitations can turn them into conversation starters, reflecting a brand's attention to detail.

Die Cutting: Die cutting allows for the creation of custom shapes and designs, offering endless possibilities for customization. Whether it's a uniquely shaped business card or an intricately designed invitation, die cutting ensures that each piece is a work of art.

Our expertise in these finishing techniques, coupled with our high-quality 350gsm and 700gsm kraft paper, enables us to produce exquisite, one-of-a-kind products that truly reflect the values and vision of your business.
