the overall style of your design. If you’d like more information on your choice, check out our paper
Silk Silk coated paper has a low surface sheen and luxurious feel. It offers excellent ink to paper contrast, and printed colours appear bright and defined.
Gloss Gloss coated paper has a high surface shine and a very smooth finish. Printed colours 'pop up' and appear extra vibrant, making it a favourite choice for promotional items. Ink dries well on gloss paper, so you're unlikely to need lamination.
Uncoated Our uncoated paper has a soft finish and tactile quality. Because it's more absorbent than coated paper, printed inks appear flatter. It's the best choice for stationery as it's easy to write on.
Recycled Our recycled paper has an uncoated, course texture and slightly flecked appearance. This paper is more absorbent than coated varieties, so finished print appears flatter for a more modern feel to colours and designs.
Gesso The 'hammered' texture of Tintoretto is strangely satisfying to touch. A fine Italian paper that's perfect for bringing prestige to any print.
Fresco Gesso Fresco Gesso features the same uncoated, lightly hammered surface as our Tintoretto Gesso paper, but with a bright white hue.
Laid A deluxe, tactile paper with a fine-lined texture on both sides. Laid paper is bright white and specially treated for impeccable results with our digital presses.
Nettuno Crisp and clean, yet soft and inviting, with fine-lined markings. The last word in understated elegance, with lines more refined and condensed than our Laid paper.
Acquerello This delectable laid paper in rich cream gives a luxurious, old-world look that loves retro artwork. Soft to touch, with fine lines impressed on both sides.
Cream Our cream paper comes uncoated, so it’s ideal for adding a little touch of class and an understated, premium feel to print. Ink is absorbed into the paper to give a flatter, softer look.
Rives Shetland Rives Shetland is a cool white paper with a surface texture resembling the weave of a fine fabric. It is uncoated and absorbs printed inks to give a softer look.
Kraft Kraft is an earthy, latte-coloured paper that transforms designs with a vintage edge. It has an uncoated, smooth surface with a natural textured appearance.
