  • Paper Samples for Packaging?

    Hello, does anybody know websites where I can order papers samples specifically used for packaging? Particularly more tactile papers similar to kraft, recycled paper, etc?

    I have samples of papers which I ordered online but I see mostly types used for stationery, brochures, etc.

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    Google Packaging paper manufacturers and you'll get some names of manufacturers you can contact and request samples. I'm not sure if they are like paper companies, but if they are, they'll send you lots of samples for free. i.e. French paper, Wasau, Neenah, etc.

      Hi WannaBrie,
      I actually have samples from those paper companies (except French Paper, I should check them out, thanks! )but it looks like the papers they send are used more for stationery, lining, envelopes, etc. I'm looking for ones that are used more for packaging like gables, gift boxes, gourmet packaging.

        You may have to contact packaging printers and request samples from them.

          I understood that, what I said was "Google Packaging paper manufacturers and you'll get some names of manufacturers you can contact and request samples." I did and got a good deal of results. Just look at teh very first one that comes up, there is a list.

            Oh my, that IS an impressive list! Sorry, I have been trying to google with other keywords earlier so I must have been tired that I missed "manufacturers" when you mentioned it. Thanks so much.

              I understand that when you're new to this, it feels like you must take whatever work you can get, and swallow all the crap that comes with it. But it's actually just the opposite. This is a toxic relationship....

              Also just to address your OP more specifically, Twitter vs a forum.

              On twitter I can message someone I know and ask for a crit or fresh set of eyes. On a forum I can post that same message,...

              It's another social media app that allows you to connect with people, in some ways it's easier than others. Its one more way to market yourself, and people have gotten plenty of work off twitter alone....
