Yupo is one of our least known products, here at MorningPrint. We believe most people do not think of this paper stock because they are unsure of what it is. Hopefully, after reading this brief article, you will feel better acquainted with this type of paper.
To start, Yupo is not regular paper, it is actually a synthetic paper. Synthetic paper is made of 100% recycled paper, making Yupo as environmentally friendly as Vintage Kraft. At 9pt, it is also our thinnest stock. For reference purposes, it could be described as slightly thicker than a sheet of college ruled notebook paper.
Despite it’s thinness (which to some may be a pro and not a con), it is our most durable paper. Yupo is waterproof, tear-prof and can be wiped clean. In addition to durability, Yupo also boasts a fresh, modern appearance. It is smooth, cool to the touch and has a bright white stock.
