Posted by on 24 May 2013 | Category: Design, Hints & Tips, Industry Trends

Due to it’s natural and earthy appearance, Kraft card and paper is making a comeback. Especially as it can now be printed on digitally for smaller, more economic print runs.

CQ have had 295gsm Kraft card available for a little while, which has mostly been used for business cards, but we now have Kraft papers available in weights of 60, 80 and 120gsm. These are great for use in letterheads, menus and brochures etc., if the Kraft stock fits in with your brand.
