Tree-Free Paper for Packaging and Displays

Natural Source Printing (NSP), an FSC Certified and Carbon neutral source for Printing, Packaging, and Marketing materials has introduced FiberStone™ Papers- a line of tree-free, low carbon footprint papers. NSP has been producing unit cartons, POP displays, casepacks, brochures, catalogs, annual reports and high quality pressure sensitive labels on the stone paper material.

FiberStone™ Papers come from an abundant renewable resource- limestone.”

Mary Loyer, President of Natural Source Printing states, “Our vision is to help companies achieve their environmental goals. As companies embrace greater responsibilities for environmental concerns, they are seeking resources to help them along that path. Adding FiberStone™ Papers to our vast list of green materials further cements our commitment to providing our customers with the most comprehensive menu of green solutions in the industry”.

Mary adds, “More and more green conscious companies are focusing on sustainable and low carbon footprint materials. Our own unique FiberStone™ Papers have a carbon footprint that is at least 1/3 that of virgin paper, half that of recycled paper.

Mary explains that the manufacturer of FiberStone™ Papers uses no water in processing, no trees, no chemicals, and very little energy to produce.

Right now calcium carbonate is used as a whitening agent for regular virgin paper, but people have discovered that it can replace virgin or recycled paper altogether. To the touch, it feels like a regular coated paper. And because it doesn't require water to manufacture, it saves more than just trees.

Reduce, Recycle, and Renew have been key features of NSP’s products. Other examples are their Re-pulpable Fiberboard POP displays, biodegradable plastic bags, and 14 lb. recycled paper shipping palettes.

"Natural source printing has taken a leadership role to reduce the climate impact of its offerings to customers through greener materials including corn based (PLA) plastics, recycled papers, eco-friendly inks and compostable adhesives. We are proud to partner with them to now also reduce the climate impact of the power needed to produce their products," says Michael Stewart Partnerships Manager of

Natural Source Printing's website lists the following benefits of their tree-free paper.
