This is a silk finish 70# paper and prints on par with magazines you'd find at your local newsstand. This paper is great for publications with graphics, illustrations, and text. Photos work too, but if your publication is primarily photo-driven, consider using Premium paper. The 65# matte cover has no UV coating.


This is a matte finish 80# paper that beautifully renders photographs, drawings, and designs on the velvet-finish paper. This paper is great for fine art magazines, photography journals, fashion, comic books, and more. The 80# matte cover has a satin UV coating.
