We have a few options in our Economy Paper, varying in thicknesses and coatings. We assembled a few important points that are Need to Knows for our Economy Paper options. Here is a list of the available paper options:
Standard Uncoated 10pt
Standard Coated (10pt Matte)
Glossy Heavy Weight (UV Coated)
Standard Coated 14pt glossy
Standard Coated 14pt Matte
Standard Coated 20pt Matte: Thickest paper of the economy papers. The 2nd thickest paper of our entire stock
Standard Uncoated: The original paper stock
There is no coating on this particular option meaning the paper has a natural look and feel. It is a bright, crisp white and in this particular paper option, fairly thin.
What is our Standard Coating?
Our Standard Coating smooths out the the paper, removing any roughness from it. Depending on your personal preference of soft, it can be considered as a soft feeling paper. Due to the coating, the paper will not have a natural appearance or feel. It will look and feel much smoother and a little soft. The paper itself is matte with a crisp white coloring.
Standard Coating does NOT affect Finishing Options
Despite the Standard Coating, a majority of the finishing options are possible on these papers: Foiling, Embossing, Laser Cutting, and Hole Punching. Neither hole punching or embossing will crack the coating at any time. Laser cutting will not destroy the coating with it’s heat.
Standard Coated 14pt Glossy & Glossy Heavy Weight
Standard Coated 14pt Glossy gives the brightest shine and richest printed color compared to the the other Economy Papers. It has two coatings; the first being our Standard Coating for a smooth touch, and the second coating for extra shine. Since the original paper for Standard Coated 14pt Glossy is a crisp white, the colors tend to show more.
Glossy Heavy Weight has the one layer of UV coating. It is quite reflective and does shine, but not as much as Standard Coated 14pt Glossy. The final color printing is saturated, especially when compared to matte papers. Apart from the shine, the actual paper itself is an off white cream based paper.
Standard Coated 14pt Matte can do Spot UV
One of our most popular combinations is to have a matte paper with a select design area done in a shiny coating, revealing the printed design underneath. Standard Coated 14pt Matte paper with Spot UV provides one of the best final results for that type of design. Spot UV lies flat so it is visible to the eye but not possible to feel. Spot UV can be done on both sides of Standard Coated 14pt Matte.
