Product Description

Newsprint that is not suitable for printing is downgraded for secondary use in the packaging industry. Newsprint is a smooth, low-cost paper with many applications.

Applications

  • void filling
  • interleaving
  • wrapping fragile items
  • streak-free glass cleaning
  • sketching paper

Standard Rolls

All of our standard newsprint rolls have an 8" outer diameter and a 3" inner diameter. Since most applications do not require a core our standard rolls do not have a core. However, we stock cores and can produce rolls with a core upon your request.

The grade of newsprint available to the packaging industry is relatively constant with a basis weight between 27.7 lb. to 30 lb. This corresponds to an approximate thickness of 3.2 mils and an approximate length of 1200 feet.

See the table on the right for a listing of the standard widths that we keep in stock. The table includes the weight of each roll and the number of rolls that we put on a full skid.
