Technology description

The company turns agricultural by-products and other paper waste into decorative and professional paper stationery, manufactured in harmony with nature and personalized to the client’s needs. After drying the paper, it has to be smoothen. If it dries under normal sun, the paper will be very hard and strong and so we use rollers to smoothen, making the paper smooth. Then comes a step of measurements, according to the standard size of a client needs. And then, they do the printing because they must be personalized according to the clients address, logo, or a specific trendy word that you need on the Eco bag.
