Printing Options

When designing for print, having an idea of where you’d like your product printed goes a long way. Taking the type of paper into consideration helps ensure that you achieve high-quality results.

Paper Type Considerations

The kind of paper you’ll need depends on the kind of document you’re creating. Postcards for example are best printed on ultra-thick 350gsm paper stock while brochures come out better on 150gsm to 215gsm cover or text stock. For writing, you can go with an uncoated or silk paper stock.

The type of finish can complement a design too. Glossy paper is ideal for grabbing attention as it helps colorful designs pop out. Matte on the other hand is good for enhancing visual designs with a more neutral layout and color set.

If you’re looking to make the shift to eco-friendly print materials there are recycled paper stocks which are 100% earth friendly.

**Post Consumer Waste (PCW)

Once a material or finished product has served its intended use and has been diverted or recovered from waste destined for disposal, it is then considered “postconsumer.” Having completed its life as a consumer item, it can then be recycled as such. The percentage is the amount of recycled content in each paper from Post Consumer Sources.
