Printing ecological paper bags 

Ecological paper bags can be printed in Pantone® colours as well as in full colour. Depending on the printing, the ecological paper bags are printed with environmentally friendly inks. The printing of ecological paper bags can be done in various ways, so that, for example, a full printing on the inside and outside of the ecological paper bag can be realized or so that a desired special effect can be realized.

Printing techniques ecological paper bags
A list of the most commonly used techniques for printing ecological paper bags: 

  • PANTONE® colours and full colour are printed by means of offset printing. Water-based ink or soy ink is used for this. In this way, ecological paper bags can be printed in all colours including photo prints or images. 
  • By means of screen printing, an intense bright PANTONE® colour can be printed on the ecological paper bag. Water-based ink is used for this. 
  • A SPOT UV print is used to display a glossy effect on the luxury paper bags. SPOT UV is a transparent glossy lacquer layer. It is usual to give a logo or text a glossy effect on a matte background or kraft background. A SPOT UV print is realized on the basis of environmentally friendly ink. 
  • In addition to using printing colours, the luxury paper bags can also be provided with embossing or debossing. No ink is used in this printing method. Embossing means that a logo or text is pushed out. This creates a nice relief and playful effect on the luxury paper bag. Debossing, on the other hand, causes a logo or text to be pushed in. You can feel and see the relief in both embossing and debossing. 
  • Optionally, you can choose to have the ecological paper bags printed by means of a foil print (hot stamp print) to achieve a shiny metallic colour. Please note that foil stamping cannot be recycled together with the paper. 

Loops and handles of ecological paper bags 

The loops and handles of ecological paper bags are available in many variants. It is common to make the loops of ecological paper bags based on paper so that the entire bag is in turn 100% recyclable. Some examples of these paper handles are flat loops, twisted cords or in knotted luxury paper cords which have the same look and feel as cotton cords. In addition to paper handles, other ecological materials can also be used. For example, cords made of jute or cotton. 

Material of luxury paper bags 

Ecological paper bags are sustainable paper bags. Because the material of ecological paper bags is environmentally friendly, you contribute to a sustainable society and the cradle to cradle process. 
The materials used can generally be divided into the following durable paper types: 

Ecological paper bags made from recycled paper.
White or brown recycled kraft paper made from collected wastepaper that has been repulped and then made into new sheets of paper. Recycled paper consists of at least 80% recycled paper material, the paper fibres of which are long enough to keep the paper strong. The other 20% consists mainly of binders. 

Ecological paper bags made from FSC® certified paper.
With this you support responsible forestry. The organization “Forest Stewardship Council®” in short FSC®, sees to it and guarantees that the wood from which the paper is made comes from responsible and sustainable forestry. This also means that all ecological, economic and social aspects of forestry must be in a responsible balance in relation to people and animals that depend on the forest. All parties in the supply chain must be FSC® certified. FF-PACKAGING is FSC® certified (SCS-COC-005184).

As of September 1, 2021, we have taken a sustainable but also necessary step in the field of paper packaging. All newly produced paper bags and boxes that we import from outside the EU will be FSC® certified. With this step we work entirely in accordance with EUTR legislation. 

Ecological paper bags made from ZEROTREE® paper.
ZEROTREE® is a registered label of FF-PACKAGING and means that the paper is not made from felled trees. In this way, FF-PACKAGING contributes to forestry. ZEROTREE® paper can be made from different materials, such as recycled waste cotton and recycled paper in combination with grass fibres or jute fibres. For more information about our ZEROTREE® bags,

We also use recycled cardboard for reinforcement in the cover and for the bottom cardboard. In this way, ecological paper bags are sustainable and 100% recyclable.
