HAVE YOU CONSIDERED HAVING UNCOATED FLYERS?
By Darren | 11 May 2018
Choosing the right paper to have your flyers printed on is an important decision as the paper choice can dramatically change how the work is printed and therefore the finished result. While coated paper offers an upmarket, smooth finish, uncoated paper has a certain elegance which you may want to try next time you need some flyers printed.
So what is uncoated paper?
Coated paper, such as gloss and silk, has a smooth print quality which gives colour vibrancy whereas uncoated paper adds a rustic feel with more visible grains running through the paper. It is also porous, therefore absorbs more ink than coated paper, giving a warmer look. When litho printed, uncoated paper can be customised with overprinting or even handwriting to give that personal touch.
When should you choose uncoated flyers?
With rich colours and a rustic finish, there are a variety of companies and projects that can benefit from uncoated paper stocks, here are just a few:
- Wedding invitations. A thick, uncoated paper is a great choice for a wedding invite as the name of the guest can be hand-written while the textured finish offers a more luxurious feel.
- Retro and vintage shops. Uncoated paper stocks are tactile, giving messages of trust and environmentally friendly, ideal for adding authenticity to vintage retailers.
- Artisan food shops. Enhance the natural and handmade elements of an artisan baker for example with the raw feel and rich colours you get with uncoated paper stocks.
- Restaurant menus. Restaurants can have very elegant menus by choosing an uncoated paper stock, which will feel bulkier than their coated counterparts.
