Papers

  • The actual type of paper a project is printed on can greatly affect how it looks – from colour to overall quality. The options are almost limited and include vivid finishes.
  • The beginning for most printing though falls into one of two categories – coated or uncoated – and styles – matte or glossy.
  • Coated paper includes a finish which is designed to improve or enhance the printing process. Coating levels includes light coated, medium coated, high coated, and art paper. Art paper is used for high-quality artwork in brochures and books. Coated paper is smooth and appears to have a gloss finish. (In terms of Pantone colour, coated paper refers to that gloss finish.)
  • Uncoated paper is a common office paper. It is used for letterhead, copying, printing, brochures and posters. Uncoated papers gets lesser durable over time.
  • The other consideration when it comes to paper type is the finished look of the product – matte or glossy. It depends on what is being printed; text is typically matte while photos are glossy. Matte printing is crisp, detailed and does not possess as much reflection or glare. Glossy finishes possess polished look and can add extra oomph to images. Glossy finishes are often UV protected and paper will stay sharp and clean longer than matte alternatives.
