When it comes to choosing the right paper for the job, you have to consider two key factors; the type of document you plan to create and the technology you plan to use.

Image and overall document quality depend on using the correct paper for the type of document you wnat to produce.

Multi-Purpose Papers

Multi-use or multi-purpose papers are the workhorses of papers. They are ideal for a broad range of general uses, performing reasonably well in all areas.

Characteristic Checklist:

  • Less expensive than specialty papers
  • Performs adequately on all types of rquipment
  • Reasonable inkjet print quality
  • Reasonable toner adhesion for laser printers and photocopiers
  • Reasonable ink absorption for offset printing
  • Available in various weights
  • Acceptable inage quality for monochrome and draft-quality colour printing

Laser Papers

Laser papers feature a number of unique qualities. First, laser paper must be able to withstand the high heat and toner formulations associated with the electrophotographic process (laser printing). Paper performance can also be affected by the equipments paper (the path through which the paper passes during the imaging process). A number of product characteristics are built into laser-guaranteed products to prevent jamming and curling. You will often find laser paper in higher brightness (90+) and heavier basis weight ranges than less expensive multipurpose sheets.

The demands of colour laser printers are different than those of black and white printers. This is because with colour printing you're subjecting the paper to four layers of toner as opposed to the one layer with monochrome printing. For this reason, high-quality colour printing papers have a different set of product specifications.

Characteristic Checklist

  • Withstands high heat and toner demands
  • Anti-jamming qualities
  • Anti-curling qualities
  • High brightness (90+)
  • Heavier basis weight

Inkjet Papers

Inkjet papers are custom designed for inkjet applications, particularly full colour applications. They are surfaced-treated to ensure good text defination, low colour mottle (non-uniformity in the image colour), and minimal feathering. The surface treatment also acts as a barrier to control ink drop penetration. This maximises the brightness of the colours. It also enhances the sheets smoothness, which affects image quality as well.

Characteristic Checklist

  • Specifically for inkjet use
  • Particularly good for full colour
  • Good text definition
  • Low colour mottle
  • Minimal feathering
  • Maximum colour brightness
  • Smooth finish
