Project Description



The conscientious paper 100% made from recycled cups. Click here to read about CupCycling™.

From cup to paper: Extract is a pioneering paper – It’s a solution to a worldwide problem:  the colossal quantity of disposable coffee cups, which is a consequence of the growing coffee on the go trend, remain largely unrecycled.

Extract is GF Smith’s conscious effort to tackle this global concern by taking disposable paper cups destined for landfill and transforming them into beautiful paper. 5 used paper cups makes 1 sheet of 380gsm Extract paper!

Extract is available in ten colours, all inspired and drawn directly from nature: Aqua, Cactus, Coral, Ember, Flint, Khaki, Moon, Mustard, Pitch, Shell

Available in 130gsm and 380gsm, in 720x1020mm and A4, with matching Envelopes in C6 and DL.

Of course, GF Smith’s EMBOSSING options are also available.

Extract is a “zero waste” process, so the more Extract that gets used, the fewer cups to landfill or incineration!

You can order exactly the amount of sheets you need (from a minimum order quantity of 1 sheet for the standard full sheet size) – so paper waste is avoided right from the start.
