Newsprint Papers


Newsprint is a type of paper used for the publication of newspapers, advertisements, magazines, telephone directories and other similar publications. This type consists of uncoated paper with less than 8% inorganic fillers, but may be specially calendered.

Newsprint is a low-cost, non-archival paper consisting mainly of wood pulp and most commonly used to print newspapers and other publications and advertising material. Invented in 1844 by Charles Fenerty of Nova Scotia, Canada, it usually has an off white cast and distinctive feel.
