Questions and answers about packaging papers:
The ideal weight of packaging paper depends entirely on its specific use and the stress it will be subjected to. For example, a thickness of 70-100 g/m² (grams per square meter) is commonly used for wrapping papers. This thickness provides sufficient protection for goods during transportation without making handling difficult. On the other hand, a thickness of 100-150 g/m² is suitable for very heavy items or items that require extra protection as it provides a strong and durable paper.
Personalised packaging allows a company to differentiate itself from competitors, support its marketing efforts and strengthen its image. Branding is a way to increase marque recognition, visibility and customer loyalty. Customers who see a company’s branded packaging paper are more likely to remember the company and purchase its products or services again.
Flexographic printing is used for printing the majority of flexible plastic packaging, such as sealed meat and salads, liquid cartons, plastic-paper bags and coffee cups. This cost-effective printing method is utilised for various materials, both absorbent and liquid-repellent.
Different materials have different standard sizes. For example, standard sizes for recycled paper include 60 x 80 cm, 80 x 50 cm, and 50 x 40 cm in sheets. Kraft paper (brown paper) is available in rolls with widths of 20, 40, 57, 75, and 100 cm. The standard sizes for tissue paper are 75 x 50 cm and 38 x 50 cm.
The most commonly used materials for packaging paper rolls are kraft paper, recycled paper and general packaging paper.
Creating a customised paper depends on factors such as quality of paper, the quantity ordered and whether the paper is in rolls or sheets.
Cellulose-based materials are often used in kraft paper, recycled paper or unbleached paper. For packaging non-greasy and non-moist food items thin sulphite paper with a silk-like texture is preferred. Paper is manufactured from fibres, primarily derived from forests (although there are also marginal uses of grass, sugarcane, etc., for paper production). Recycled fibres have weaker properties compared to virgin ones, and the purpose of the paper largely determines the optimal manufacturing process. Although paper is made for specific purposes it does not mean that the same paper cannot be suitable for other applications, although assessing this requires expertise.

The Carccu® story is one of Finnish entrepreneurship and a passion for finding the most efficient packaging solution to support our customers’ brands. The company’s current name is derived from the small village community of Karkku located near the Finnish town of Sastamala in the Rautavesi national landscape. Olli Borg, who is still involved in the company’s operations, assembled the first printing press at EPP-Pack Oy’s premises at the Karkku site in the 1980s.
What came next is an eminent part of Finnish flexographic printing history, and, today, we develop our business feet firmly on the ground and our eyes focused on the future. From the beginning, Carccu has also focused on the international market, which has resulted in a long tradition of export trade. Over the years, pioneering vision and innovation have made our company Finland’s leading printing house specializing in customized packaging solutions.
