Sappi Proto PNG


Sappi Proto PNG

Just like the ocean, this paperboard’s vibrant blue-white shade and smooth surface helps all your worries float away. With a lower basis weight in higher calipers compared to other SBS grades, you’ll end up spending less money on distribution costs and more on those oh-so-necessary beachside piña coladas—complete with tiny umbrellas (paper ones, of course). So head to the beach and make like this paperboard: laying flat, developing some brilliant color, and getting the perfect amount of tipsy.

Sappi Coated Paperboard

Not to be sappy, but we love Sappi! Case Paper is your one-stop shop for Sappi’s premium coated paperboard products. Unlike standard paperboard, Sappi’s offering features a layer that’s Michael-Jackson-on-the-dancefloor smooth, making it the ideal choice for creating high-quality, visually appealing packaging that protects your product.

Unleashing the Power of Sappi Coated Paperboard

Sappi’s coated paperboard offers a vast selection to meet your business packaging needs. Here’s a closer look at the key features that elevate your packaging experience:

  • Exceptional Printability: The smooth surface allows for superior ink absorption and reproduction, producing vibrant colors, sharp details, and high-quality graphics. This translates to bold packaging that grabs attention and shouts your brand message. Not literally, of course—shouting at customers probably wouldn’t be super effective.
  • Unmatched Durability: The coating acts as a protective barrier, safeguarding the paperboard from moisture, scuffs, and scratches during transportation or storage. This is particularly important for products that may encounter these elements during shipping or on retail shelves.
  • Unparalleled Versatility: Sappi offers a wide range of thicknesses, grammages, and colors to meet your specific project requirements. Thickness options range from lightweight and flexible for everyday products to heavyweight for items requiring significant protection, and a variety of grammages are offered as well. Grammage refers to the weight per square meter, allowing you to tailor the paperboard’s structure to your needs. Not to be confused with Graham-age which is when you’re making s’mores and looking for the right crackers. The color options extend beyond the standard white or natural kraft color, enabling you to incorporate brand colors or create a unique visual identity for your product.

Frequently Asked Questions about Sappi Coated Paperboard

What are the different types of finishes available?

Sappi offers a variety of finish options for its coated paperboard, including gloss, matte, and pearlescent. Gloss finishes provide a high-shine, luxurious look, while matte finishes offer a more subdued and sophisticated appearance. Pearlescent finishes add a touch of shimmer and elegance. Just be careful not to bring pearlescent paper into a jewelry store—it may get mistaken for a pearl necklace, and then you’d be in trouble for trying to walk out with it.

What thickness of paperboard should I choose?

The ideal thickness depends on the application. For lightweight folding cartons, a thinner paperboard might suffice. However, for sturdier rigid boxes or packaging that needs to withstand more weight, a thicker paperboard is recommended. Our team can help you determine the best thickness for your specific needs.

Is Sappi’s coated paperboard eco-friendly?

Sappi is committed to sustainability and offers coated paperboard products made with recycled content (like a B-tier comedian’s set). We encourage you to inquire about specific eco-friendly options available.
