Eco-Foil Giftwrap paper

We've added Eco-friendly Foil paper to our range of Giftwrap paper types!

Yes this really is an eco-friendly gift wrapping paper containing a recyclable-foil!  Read about the properties of Eco-friendly foil and other Giftwrap papers we use... From the feel and finish to the design and weight of paper, we specialise in producing perfect Gift-wrapping materials.  

Professional wrappers tend to work with thicker paper on larger/weighty items, but thinner paper for very small items so that bulk paper doesn't get in the way and mar the end result.

This guide should help you choose a gift wrap that’s suited to your brand and gift wrapping skills.  

Eco-friendly foil Coated paper with recycled foil content, now 100% recyclable
This Eco-friendly Foil Range of Giftwrap paper has been produced on FSC certified material and has a nice shiny foil finish, but it doesn't have any lamination as with previous foil papers, making it now fully recyclable.

Matt Coated paper with no foil content, recyclable
This Matt paper type works very well for square boxes, but when you come to wrap something very small and fiddly or an odd shape, the material tends to tear more easily. Unless you’re a professional you will find yourself wasting paper. That said, the paper is commonly less expensive and generally recyclable.

Natural Kraft paper manufactured using recycled natural fibres. No chemical components (coating for instance) or plastic materials have been used.
This paper is similar to the Matt Coated paper for working with, in that because there is no foil content, it doesn’t have the elasticity, or ‘give’, when you use it.

Brands that have high ethics will appreciate that this is not only produced using recycled material, but it carries PEFC accreditation for sustainable forest management, caring for economies who rely on forestry as a sole source of income.

Brown Ribbed Kraft sealed, printed with water-based inks to one or both sides. Fully recyclable.
This brown ribbed kraft is good for corporates, and for lining boxes.  The paper is manufactured from natural fibres. No chemical components (coating for instance) or plastic materials have been used. Double-sided is very popular as it can be used both ways round, and adds sophistication.  The added benefit of kraft is that it's easily recognisable with consumers as being suitable for recycling.

Metallic Foil paper with foil content, luxury
This paper tends to be quite forgiving as it creases nicely and because of the foil content, it doesn’t tear. For a newbie to gift wrapping this paper will give you the best chance to get your gift wrapped right first time!

It’s advisable to check the type of sticky tape you intend to use – because of the foil content and finish you’ll sometimes find this paper demands more
permanent sticky tape. Alternatively, try using double-sided tape that will remove obvious glitches, with the sticky tape, that may spoil the look.
