Paper is an extremely broad concept. The variations are almost limitless, and it is not only the visual impression but also the tactile qualities that make each paper unique. This is why paper is far more than just a surface.
Paper can convey feeling and add an extra dimension to your printed message. Our aim is to give you the knowledge to be able to distinguish one paper from another, but with particular reference to uncoated paper. “Uncoated” simply means that the paper has no added layer on the surface and is completely natural. We hope this knowledge will help you select the best paper for your particular end use by being able to recognise the individual qualities and properties of the paper you see.
