He said demand for the product has grown steadily among food, beverage, apparel, accessories, beauty/cosmetics, cannabis and other specialty brands. “They are affordable and cost-effective for brand owners. They print, convert and accept post-press treatments beautifully.”

The Forest Stewardship Council-certified papers are optimized for 6+ color printing on all offset, letterpress, dry toner and HP Indigo presses, and ideal for foil stamping, die-cutting, embossing, perfect binding and folding/scoring. Multiple sizes of matching envelopes are available.

Glama KRAFT is typically specified for specialty print, packaging and promotion to showcase products and services that are “rustic” … “rugged”… “classic”… “traditional”… “retro”… “sustainable”… “authentic”… “hand-crafted”… “environmentally responsible” and more.

Kelly said Glama KRAFT works particularly well for corporate identity, such as brochures, business cards, announcements and invitations; custom, luxe retail packaging; premium retail tag and label; enticing, high-impact direct mail; direct-to-consumer and other customer communications and gift and loyalty cards.
