How To Choose Printing Paper?

by Vinni S. SEO Executive
Now more than ever, there are different papers optimised and engineered for a variety of uses. The Paper you will purchase to load the copier in your office will be different than sheets you print photographs on, which are different from those you print wedding invites on. There is considerable overlap between all paper types when it comes to terminology, however, and knowing a little bit more about paper can help you save money and get print results at the end of the day.

To help you get a better idea of what paper is the best for your specific needs, here are some of the most important factors and how they will influence the look, feel and overall cost of your print. Four basic properties that apply to nearly all paper types, both in the office and studio, are size, brightness, shade, and weight. Each defines a characteristic of the printing paper that makes it better for certain uses and will affect everything from print quality to the amount you pay per box.

Size
The size of your paper type is a major consideration if you are thinking of printing with your printer. Your printer can accommodate only a specific range of paper sizes so making sure your printer can accommodate your paper size if you do intend to print with your printer is a must-do. Not all paper types come in the same range of sizes so it pays to know what your options are to set realistic expectations.

Brightness
Brightness is the most common way of expressing how light interacts with the page. Xerox defines brightness as the light reflectance of blue-spectrum light on the page. The brightness of the page will affect the sharpness of your text or images. It is measured using a 0-100 scale, where a hundred is the brightest. Most paper is somewhere in the 90s on this scale, with less expensive copier paper coming in around 92 and artist-grade paper ranging in the high 90’s to 100.

Brightness is especially important for colour photographers, as the paper you choose can influence the colour-correctness of your tones. Softer and lighter colours in your image can be washed out by the high-brightness paper. Lower brightness paper can add richness to your colour, but if you are working with a lot of deeper tones it can muddy their sharpness. As brightness is associated with the blue light spectrum explicitly, high brightness can add a blueish tint to your images and may interact differently between natural light, which has a more balanced spectrum and fluorescent lighting.

Shade
The shade describes the tone of your paper. Anyone who has spent time buying paint at the hardware store knows there are several different shades of white you can choose from. Differences in tone will make your white tones look warmer or colder depending on the balance of red and blue light they reflect. Paper is no different and the balance of your shade can make a big difference in how your print turned out.
