Frequently Asked Questions about Astrolith™ Coated Paper

What is the difference between coated and uncoated paper?

Coated paper is smoother and ideal for vibrant photos and brochures, but can be glossy and less writable. Uncoated paper has a natural texture, good for text and writing, but colors appear softer and it’s less durable. Generally, choose coated for a polished look, or uncoated for a natural feel. Still, though, these products are flexible and work for all sorts of projects. One caveat: uncoated paper is also more likely to want to dine indoors if it’s a little chilly out because it has no coat, which can make getting a reservation harder sometimes.

What kind of printing projects is Astrolith™ good for?

Astrolith™ shines as a versatile paper ideal for a range of professional printing projects. Its ability to produce high-quality prints with vivid colors and sharp details makes it a top choice for creating eye-catching brochures, packaging, presentations, and marketing materials. This translates to capturing attention, leaving a strong impression on potential customers, and effectively promoting your products or services.  Furthermore, the durability of some Astrolith™ varieties makes it suitable for packaging applications, potentially offering protection during transport and storage while still allowing for attractive and informative designs. Overall, Astrolith™ caters to business needs by providing a balance between visual impact, durability, and high-quality printing, all crucial aspects for successful marketing materials and products.

Is Astrolith™ paper thick?

Astrolith™ caters to a range of project needs by offering a variety of thicknesses. This means you can choose the perfect paper weight for your specific project. If you need heavyweight, durable paper for presentations or brochures that will see a lot of handling, Astrolith™ offers options like their 200lb cover stock. This heavyweight paper creates a professional and sturdy feel, ideal for leaving a lasting impression. Conversely, if your project prioritizes a more natural, flexible feel, you might choose a lighter option like their 80lb cover stock. This is a good choice for brochures or marketing materials that will be mailed or inserted into binders. Ultimately, the thickness you choose depends on the desired look and functionality for your project.
