We offer a wide selection of different paper, these different papers are also available in wide choice of colours.
Paper with a coating to give it a shiny finish adding extra vibrancy. Glossy papers make colours appear more vibrant and generally offer the best resolution, but they suffer from glare which can be a problem under certain lighting conditions.
Paper with a matt coating to give it a smooth finish. Excellent for usage where light reflections can be an issue because it doesn’t create any glare. Matt papers will generally have slightly duller colours and less contrast compared to gloss papers and are often not quite as durable.
Paper which doesn’t have a coating and is therefore not as smooth as coated paper. Premium quality uncoated papers are used for business stationery and are becoming increasingly popular for use in prestigious brochures and catalogues. Ideal if you need to handwrite personal information onto your print.
Textured papers are a tactile way to create interest. Variations in paper can include homemade papers, rice paper and papyrus.
