There’s so much to be said about the paper choice for your print project. Color, weight, texture, etc… The paper you choose really is a big part of bringing your design to life. Being that we love paper, we try to have as many choices as humanly possible for you to select from. Shoot, on some products we have a standard option for you to name your French Paper stock, and they have a mind boggling selection! We just don’t want to limit you in your decision, which is why we have the ability for you to request a custom quote.
To show you that you just can’t go wrong with our paper selection, here’s the same 1-color letterpress print on two different stocks. The first is Crane’s Lettra 110# Ecru and the second is .30 chipboard. The design really translates well on both. Even though the Lettra is an elegant sheet, the design really pulls it towards the rustic side of it’s character and plays off of the toothy finish very well. The chipboard is a bit more dense, but is well suited for a black hit of ink with an old-time design.
Which do you prefer? I think they both work very well.
