Paper selection

Properly selected paper ensures the best print quality.

Our sales department is always ready to help you choose the material and support you with your knowledge and experience. When choosing paper, two factors in particular should be considered: the gram weight and type of paper.

Gram weight

Gram weight, or paper surface weight, is a measure of how many grams one square meter of paper weighs. For example, 80 gram paper means that one sheet of paper per square meter weighs 80 grams

Which paper to choose?

80–100 g/m2 writing paper (uncoated paper)
115–250 g/ m2 flyer (coated paper)
130–170 g/ m2 leaflet, brochure (coated or uncoated paper)
200–300 g/ m2 cases, CD and DVD cases, packaging (cardboard, coated or uncoated paper)
250–350 g/ m2 business card (uncoated, coated or textured)
250–300 g/ m2 document covers (cardboard or textured paper)
Paper type

The paper can be divided into three by type:

  • uncoated paper,

  • coated paper,

  • cardboard.

1. Uncoated paper
The surface of the uncoated paper is matte. This includes, for example, white offset paper, which is generally used to print letterhead and book contents. Also included are various types of toner and textured papers (the latter are mostly used for more representative and special publications, such as document covers, invitations and business cards).

2. Coated paper
It is a matte or glossy paper with a smooth surface. We recommend using coated paper in color media, such as promotional materials. It is suitable for printing high quality images and promotional materials.

3. Cardboard
Cardboard is a multi-layer material and therefore more durable and stronger. Depending on the purpose of the product, you can choose cardboard with different properties. Cardboard is used to make packaging, document covers, block covers, cases and more.
