In this article, we used the gravity model to study the effects of tariffs on US exports and imports of paper products that include paper, paperboard, and wood pulp. The results show that an increase in tariffs would have a small, significant, and asymmetric impact on US exports and imports of paper products. Furthermore, exchange rates, economic sizes of the United States and its trade partners, and internet use rates are found to be significant factors influencing US paper products trade. These results show that the United States has some leverage in promoting free trade in paper products.
