Paper types revealed!Posted on November 30, 2015 

Printing is more than just producing words and images on paper.

You have probably noticed that when you pick up items that have been printed on paper, the weight, texture and look can vary dramatically. If you have things printed regularly by your printer – you most likely leave it up to them to choose the most appropriate paper for the job. But there is definitely no harm in knowing a little bit about why they choose what they do.

Common paper and board types used in commercial printing are:

  • Silk Coated – smooth paper with low sheen coating – improves colours and sharpens images
  • Gloss Coated – smooth paper with high sheen coating – further improves colours and images
  • Uncoated – no coating means finish is less smooth and ink is absorbed deeper, creating a flatter appearance
  • Recycled – available in a range of qualities and finishes with varying degrees of recycled composition

FSC We are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) accredited. Our chain of Custody Certification guarantees that pulp for the paper making process of FSC Certified materials has been sourced from responsibly managed forests

If you would like to know more about different types of paper and board then we are very happy to help – call Kube Print on 020 7232 4220.
