A small factor but otherwise needs some consideration in printing is choosing the kind of paper your print job would be printed on. A few designers do not give much thought about this issue. Some may have techniques so that the color in whatever paper printed on would not affect the prints. Some just do not give a damn about it as long as they have done their work. Let their clients worry about it later on.
The first is opacity. This refers to how much you can see through the paper. You would not want your prints put in a paper so transparent you can actually what is on the next page. And think about the readers. Although reading your prints would be a challenging experience, many would not be too happy straining their eyes to read your texts.
Second is thickness. This is how thick the paper is. Judging the thickness from how much the paper weight is fallacious. Light papers can weight as much or even more than the heavy ones. If you want your printing to appear that they consist of more pages than they actually do, use thick papers. Have you ever seen postcards printed on thin papers? Then thick, it is.
Brightness is the third. Paper can be like mirrors that reflect light thus bringing more life into your prints but oftentimes can be a source of sore eyes. Coated stocks reflect more light than uncoated stocks. You should know when and when not to use bright papers for your printing jobs. You would not want to require your readers to wear sunglasses when reading your work.
Lastly is the strength. Exactly how strong and durable your paper is? Is it strong enough to hold up to people browsing them again and again? Or do they show signs crease and breakage the instant you try to scan it? Knowing how strong your paper is to endure having to go through many scanning hands is definitely a plus factor. Printing jobs are something you may want to preserve as a reference or as a trophy of your once-career as a writer. Or just something you can show your great-great grandchild in the future.
Choosing the perfect paper for your printing needs can assure you of having the perfect result. This can be expensive but thinking about the result it can give you can make up for that. Choose your paper stock and choose wisely. Remember your readers of today and your future grandchildren.
