Ever seen those super cool menus, greetings cards or flyers printed on an earthy brown paper? For trendy print that doesn’t cost the world, our brown Kraft paper can give your marketing materials, invites and cards the iconic look you’ve been after. We’ve compiled a list of all the different print products you can use for Kraft printing and a few expert tips from our Studio team.



Take your flyer and leaflet design up a notch by printing it on Kraft! Because of how thick Kraft is (457mic, if you were wondering), it’s great for making a lasting impression. If you use them as handouts in the street or for a flyer drop, these are the marketing materials people will want to hold on to.



As well as awesome leaflets, our Kraft flyers can also double as menus – great for cafés, farm shops and even restaurants who want to show off their organic, homemade range. Try A3 for placemat menus, DL size for drinks lists or A4 and A5 for classic double-sided menus.



Ideal for sprucing up your shop or café window display, our A4 and A3 Kraft flyers can also double up as distinctive posters. This style is ever-popular among small businesses and independents who are after a more polished version of the crafty DIY look.


Invites and Save the Date Cards

Kraft paper is also taking over the wedding industry for that exact same reason. From wedding invitations to save the date cards, you can create your own professional designs that look like they’ve been specially crafted for the big day – perfect for whimsical weddings!


Business Cards

Why not make that all-important first impression with Kraft business cards? They’re great for networking events, or placing them in a pile at your store’s checkout area for customers to pick up as they leave. One thing’s for sure: you’ll definitely be remembered!


Loyalty Cards

Our Kraft business cards also double as stylish loyalty and reward cards. The Kraft paper is super absorbent, meaning you can stamp away without worrying about running or smudging.


Greetings Cards

Another print product that benefits from the DIY feel of Kraft paper is greetings cards. Ideal for giving your Birthday, Christmas and thank you cards a personal touch – after all, nothing’s quite so memorable as personalised cards!


Tips from the Studio Team!

To help you out, we asked our Studio team what design advice they’d give for printing on Kraft. Here are their top tips…


  • As we can’t print with white ink, any white areas of your design will show as the brown Kraft paper once printed. Click here to learn more about CYMK colours and printing.
  • Make lighter colours pop by surrounding them with darker colours!
  • Black text and illustrations can really stand out on Kraft paper.
  • Like white, try and avoid really light colours like yellow – unless you’re pairing them with a darker outline to make them stand out.
  • If you use lots of dark colours together, you design might not stand out – play around with white space and clear lines for the best effect.
