ECO FIBER PAPER (PAPERWISE 295 GRAMS)
This ecological paper (almost cardboard) is made from agricultural waste and therefore has a very low 'footprint'. You can slightly feel the fibers of the papertype and due to the production method the surface is not homogeneously constructed. This is not disturbing and gives it a contemporary character. The color is beige and both sides are the same, but the shade does have an effect on the color & readability (we do not print white as the backgroundcolor). Due to its robustness and structure, this material can also be assessed as cardboard. Excellent writable papertype. Note: It is possible that surface effects are visible through the print.
Characteristics: PaperWise 295 grams, uncoated paper, natural brown color, 439um thick, 100% opacity, not bleached compostable, woodfree ECF
Kraft paper (brown 285 grams)
Recycled paper (almost cardboard) of which, just like with Eco fiber paper, the surface is not homogeneous. Surface can be called smooth and due to its brown color not very suitable for photo / color prints. Black texts and small color elements are perfectly readable, but the brown color also has an influence on the print (we do not print white as the background color). Due to its robustness and structure, this material can also be assessed as cardboard. Excellent writable paper. Note: It is possible that surface effects are visible through the print. Due to the natural composition, the color of different batches may vary. The color hue of the front and back are always slightly different from each other.
