Printed paper gift bags
Paper gift bags can be printed in both PANTONE® colours and full colour. Depending on the printing, the paper gift bags are printed by means of offset printing, screen printing, foil printing (hot stamp printing) or SPOT UV printing. You can give paper gift bags a luxurious look by combining different printing techniques. In this way, even a gift bag is a gift in itself!
Printing techniques paper gift bags
Below is a list of the most commonly used techniques for printing paper gift bags:
- PANTONE® colours and full colour are printed by means of offset printing. In this way, paper gift bags can be printed in all colours including photo prints or images. The inside of a paper gift bag and the bottom carton can also be fully printed.
- With the use of screen printing PANTONE® colours or a white colour can be printed. Usually this is done on coloured kraft material and it only concerns a printing of a logo or text.
- Are you looking for a shiny printing colour? By means of foil printing (a hot stamp printing) we can print all kinds of metallic colours or matte colours on the paper gift bags. Usually a foil stamping (hot stamp printing) is used to give a logo or text a shiny or metallic effect.
- A SPOT UV print is used to display a glossy effect on the paper gift 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, for example. Because of the latter, SPOT UV printing is only possible on white, black or brown kraft paper, matte laminated paper or on paper with a soft touch laminate. A SPOT UV print can be printed over a coloured logo or text, so that this print stands out even more.
Paper gift bags can also be embossed or debossed. Embossing means that, for example, a logo or text is pushed out. This creates a nice relief and playful effect on the paper gift bags. Debossing, on the other hand, ensures that a logo or text is pushed in. You can feel and see the relief with both embossing and debossing.
Material of paper gift bags
Paper gift bags are made from sturdy and luxurious paper. There are different types of paper and finishes that can be used to print and produce luxury paper bags.
- A commonly used standard paper type is 180 gsm. white kraft or brown paper. This kraft paper can also be made from recycled material or based on FSC® certified kraft paper. In addition to a thickness of 180 grs., paper gift bags are also available in 120grs., 150grs., 200grs., 230grs., 250grs. and 300 grs. kraft paper. From 250 grs. kraft paper is also called paperboard. So, you can imagine that paper gift bags based on 250 grs. or 300 grs. paper material is very thick and sturdy. It is also possible to order coloured kraft paper, for example black coloured kraft paper.
- Paper gift bags can also be provided with a gloss laminate, matt laminate or soft touch laminate. The laminate gives the paper gift bag a glossy or matte look. Laminated paper gift bags are standard produced on the basis of 190 grs. white coated paper (also called C1S white paper). Coated white paper is a white paper type with a special finish so that the paper can be provided with a laminate on the outside of the bag. Laminated paper is also available in other paper thicknesses such as 128 grs., 157 grs., 210 grs. and 230 grs. coated white paper. The advantage of glossy or matt laminated paper gift bags is that the outside of the bag does not let water / rain through. The advantage of a soft touch laminate on a paper gift bag is that the material on the outside minimizes scratches and grease stains. Soft touch laminate feels soft. Only white coated paper can be laminated, brown paper cannot be laminated.
- Both white or brown kraft paper and white laminated paper can be provided with an all-over relief structure, also called embossed patterned paper. This means that the paper by means of a roller is provided with a relief, so that you can feel and see the structure on the paper gift bag (see example photos). In this way you give the paper gift bags an extra dimension. We have around 200 rollers available in our factory with different relief structures.

Ecological paper gift bags
Ecological paper gift bags are made from white or brown paper and are available in many ecological paper types. Are you looking for an ecological paper gift bag or a sustainable paper gift bag? By choosing sturdy thick paper, paper gift bags can be reused so that these paper bags do not end up directly with the wastepaper. This ensures that paper gift bags are used as sustainable paper bags. Paper gift bags can also be made from recycled brown kraft paper or recycled white kraft paper. This recycled paper is made from old paper. In addition, paper gift bags that are made from (recycled) kraft paper and that are provided with paper cords can in turn be completely recycled, as long as there are no plastic components or laminate on the paper. In this way, the material of the paper gift bags is revived. Another common environmentally sustainable material for paper gift bags is FSC® certified paper which is available in both brown paper and white paper.
