Newsprint is low-cost, low-quality, non-archival paper. It is generally made by a mechanical milling process, without the chemical process that is usually used to remove lignin from the pulp. The lignin causes the paper to rapidly become brittle and yellow when exposed to air and/or sunlight.

Newsprint is used in the printing of newspapers, flyers, and other printed material intended for mass distribution. It usually has an off-white cast and distinctive feel.
