Newsprint is a type of low-cost, non-archival paper typically used for printing newspapers, other publications, and advertising material.

It is lightweight, with a natural off-white cast and a slightly rough texture.

Newsprint is valued for its affordability and recyclability, making it a preferred choice for high-volume, short-term applications.

Despite its lower quality compared to other paper types, its characteristic feel and appearance are still appreciated in certain contexts.
