Paper wrap - coming soon

We're proud to announce we're adding Paper Wrapping to our range sustainable print and mail solutions.

Sustainability is something we're keen to promote at KJS and we encourage our customers to do the same.

That's why we've been investing in new technologies and systems to ensure we can provide print and mail solutions that don't cost the earth.

We've been running potato starch for some time, which has proved very popular. It's compostable and biodegradable and customers like it because it demonstrates to their readers their decision to move away from traditional poly, which is less easy for consumers to recyclable (for the record, the clear poly we use can be recycled at large recycling centres often found at larger supermarkets which takes more of a conscious effort than being able to place it in your kerbside recycling bin!). Potato starch can be disposed in home composting, garden or food waste bins. If it does get put in household waste, it will simply biodegrade.

However, there is still a demand for creating full recyclable packs, and that's why we've decided to invest in Paper wrapping!

Paper wrapping offers all the combined benefits of poly wrapping and envelope enclosing:
  • It's ideal for brochures, catalogues and newsletters.
  • You can insert multiple items
  • It's lightweight so unlikely to effect pack weights, and therefore, postage costs
  • It's 100% recyclable in kerbside bins
  • We can print the wraps in full colour with your bespoke design - perfect to carry a strong brand or campaign message and/or advertising
  • Printed on FSC stock
  • Allows the complete pack to be Carbon Offset

Paper wrapping works like poly but uses a single sheet of printed paper to wrap around the items to be mailed. We'll pre-print the sheets using your bespoke artwork. This can be full colour or single colour. You've got the option to print on one side of the sheet (ie the outer carrier) or both (a great way to get a strong, eye catching message on the inside of the pack when the reader opens it).

We've done a lot of testing to ensure the paper we use is strong enough to withstand the postage process, whilst light enough not to affect postage costs.

Potato starch and Paper wrapping both add to our range of sustainable print and mail services, which also include:

Sustainability is something we take very seriously and we’ve been keen to invest in new technology to ensure we can offer our customers print and mail solutions that best protect the environment. This includes:

  • We carbon offset all our paper consumption – in the past 10 months this has created almost 1600m2 of new native woodland in the UK.
  • All our paper is FSC/PEFC certified
  • Our LED UV press is one of the most environmentally friendly print presses around. Using the latest in print technology, there's no solvent to evaporate which means no environmental pollutants are formed. It also uses less power than traditional print technology. An instant on/off functionality reduces standby consumption between jobs, helping to reduce overall C02 emissions.
  • All our services in-house, so we can keep production miles to a minimum.

We hope to have the new paper wrap line up and running in a few weeks. If you'd like to know more about this or any of our other serivces, please call us on 01733 342 321
