The Transpack Kraft range of coloured wrapping paper comprises lots of colour variations including: solid colours, metallics and theme prints.
Our 50gsm Kraft coloured wrapping paper is superior when compared to cheaper, inferior alternatives. The Kraft ranges are fully recyclable, and made from partly recycled paper. Made from sustainable forests, our eco-friendly wrapping paper is ideal for wrapping parcels and gifts.
Rolls are approx. 500mm wide with either 120m or 25m per roll. Each 120m roll weighs approximately 3kg. Please note that not all the colours are available in the shorter length.
The colours are very hard to replicate on a website and screens will display colours differently. If colour is important, please contact us for a free sample swatch of the paper, before you buy.

Is Kraft coloured wrapping paper environmentally friendly?
Yes, all of Transpack's coloured Kraft wrapping papers are environmentally friendly, and made from sustainable forests.
Will the Kraft Wrapping Paper always be the same colour?
Unbleached kraft paper is the MOST difficult paper to print due to the following reasons:
1. Kraft unbleached paper is most loved for its eco-friendly "rustic" look with its flaws. It is not a perfect, beautifully created pristine white paper that brochures are made from
2. It is made from recycled papers so consistency of pulp grade and pulp colour will vary, together with recycling chemicals and glues all of which can alter ink colours both in the roll and from batch to batch.
3. Unbleached means the actual kraft paper varies in colour itself which will also affects ink colour.
4. High fibre content not only affects the even spread of colour, but also leaves small fibres all over the printing machines and print drums, which build up and can affect colour, even if a printer cleans the machines after so many rolls have been through
5. To keep kraft paper vegan friendly and eco-friendly it is printed with a water-based ink that does not harm the environment. This ink is a bit more translucent than an oil or metal based ink, so it can affect colour spread. Water based inks are affected by weather and temperatures. So paper being printed in a hot summer may vary to when it is being printed in freezing cold winters.
6. Colour Tolerance: Printers are allowed a 5% to 10% colour variance during a print run or from batch to batch, according to the Printing Association. This has been allowed due to the almost impossible task of getting any printing machine to print a consistent colour over a period of a few hours when the machine heats, cools and inks are refilled. On top of this, Pantone makers and ink makers are also allowed 5% to 15% colour variance on their mixed colours. This makes printers lives even more difficult when trying to achieve consistency.
