The Difference Between Butcher paper vs freezer paper (and why you should care)

Butcher paper and freezer paper both start out the same: FDA approved paper generally sold in rolls of varying widths and standard thickness.

Butcher paper is perfect for wrapping up dry items for short-term, like sandwiches, and is great for lining baskets and trays for restaurants. It's uncoated, so items with more moisture may require our freezer paper. The lack of a coating gives butcher paper a versatile advantage in the food service industry, as it can serve as a great tabletop cover or menu. Every piece of butcher paper can even enhance your restaurant's image when it is custom branded. 

Butcher paper can be printed on one or both sides to include your logo, a design, or promotional information including holiday-themed decorations, messaging, or special offers. Learn more about the most popular butcher paper uses.

Freezer paper has one major difference from butcher paper: it's poly coated on one side to provide a moisture barrier that makes it ideal for long-term freezer storage as well as wrapping moisture-rich items.

Printing and customizing options are also available for freezer paper, like our camo freezer paper for hunting season.
