Why brand your food wrap paper?
It is well documented that increasing brand awareness engages with your customers on a more emotional level. In a busy and sometimes saturated market you need to stand out. Having a bespoke food wrap looks professional and it only takes seconds for a potential customer to form an impression. Having the right connection with customers increases loyalty.
What type of paper you needs depends on what it will be used for. Does it need to be water resistant and/or grease resistant? All of our food wrap paper is food safety assured but please ask us if you have any special requirements.
What size should I have?
This largely depends on how you will use it. Popular sizes include A3 and A4, but also square sheets of any size to put on plates or in trays. If you are thinking of a small quantity to start with, the standard sheet size is 335mm x 500m and you can have any size within that. So full sheets, half sheet and quarter sheets are popular because trimming is free. Larger sizes than standard are available, but the minimum order quantity will increase.
Minimum order quantities
This will depend on the size of paper you want. The smallest order that we will print is 1000 sheets of greaseproof paper on a standard sheet 335mm x 500mm. Trimming is free, so if you wanted half the size then the minimum order quantity is 2000 sheets. The larger the quantity, the better the value for money. If you want a sheet larger than 335mm x 500mm then this is accustom quote and the minimum quantity is bigger. The small orders are only available for greaseproof paper.
