As a designer, paper choice is a critical point of consideration in print design. Failing to properly consider what option is best for you can result in an unforgiving and costly error. Read on to discover why PaperTyger paper consistently performs well across all varieties of applications.


What is PaperTyger Durable Paper?

PaperTyger is a paper that looks, feels, and behaves like real paper for one simple reason; it is real paper. It’s real paper that offers the durability and resistance of synthetic paper (without being one) because PaperTyger products are manufactured using a solvent-free laminating process.

Anyone who knows printing will tell you firsthand that synthetic paper is fickle to work with.


Not all printing methods can effectively handle synthetic material. Real paper wins out on printing. It does not win out, however, on durability. Whether it’s the weather, or the constant threat or rips and tears, there is certainly something to be said about synthetic paper’s longevity. PaperTyger prints just as well as natural paper, and it can stand up to the harshest conditions alongside most synthetics. This truly is the best of both worlds, and certainly the best for design.


PaperTyger Wide Format, for example, is a popular choice for advertising, point of sale marketing, and signage, which requires high-quality paper to ensure printed graphics maintain a high resolution and clarity when enlarged.

Laminated Paper offers Longevity 

When investing in a paper for your next design project, we understand that the durability of the end product can be an important factor in deciding what paper you choose. PaperTyger's patented lamination process protects printed content against stains, spills, moisture, as well as tears and contaminants like oil, grease and dirt. Therefore, our paper positively contributes to a wide range of applications where durability is required, such as menus, maps, book covers, envelopes and packaging.
