Choosing The Right Kind Of Printable Paper For Your Project

Although it seems like a simple task, shopping for printable paper can be pretty challenging and if you don’t end up with what you need, it can be pretty expensive. Before you go out and spend money on products that aren’t for your specific project, here are a few tips to help you select the right kind of printable paper.

Text & Writing Paper

If you are looking for printable paper to print a letter on or paper to use as stationery, you may want to look for writing paper. If you need printable paper to use as text pages within books, text paper is what you need to look for.

Card Stock

Card stock is a heavyweight paper that can be used for a wide variety of projects. Some people like using card stock for official documents like company letterheads, business cards or resumes. Another common use of card stock is for crafty things like greeting cards or scrapbooks. There are a few categories in terms of cardstock weight that distinguishes one from the other. First, there is regular cardstock, which weighs in at 120-150 gsm. Next there is heavy cardstock which is 150-200 gsm. Finally there is super heavy cardstock which is 200 gsm or greater. The heavier the cardstock the less likely the ink is going to bleed through the paper.

Coated Paper

Coated paper has a smoother finish than uncoated paper and isn’t very porous. With coated paper, the ink sits on top and creates a sharper image. Coated printable paper is ideal for printing photos. For text projects, coated paper can be problematic because it can produce a glare from the glossy finish and strain the eyes. Also, it is hard to write on so one should take that into consideration before they purchase coated printable paper.

Colored Paper

Colored paper can add a fun and lively twist to documents. Just be sure that you aren’t using colored paper for document that is meant to be used in professional settings. Also, if you are using colored printable paper for text documents, make sure you choose a color that is easy to read. A bright yellow or neon pink may be straining to the eyes and take away from the message you’re trying to convey in the document. Colored paper is perfect for craft projects like scrapbooking, origami, greeting cards and fun notes. The colors are as endless as you can imagine as well. There are soft and faint colors for a more subdued hue, as well as speckle and fiber-flecked colors for a truly unique print project. There is also glittery and iridescent colored printable paper which can be perfect for flyers or invitations.

Security Paper

Security paper can be very useful for a business owner who needs a secure way to print out documents. Security paper prevents counterfeits and forgeries. Security paper often has fluorescent fibers that become invisible when viewed under an ultraviolet light source. This makes counterfeiting impossible because the fibers won’t copy or scan, therefore the text won’t be visible in a fake document.
