Paper Choices


95% of the paper that we print on are either a white or natural colour.

Both paper colours work well with text and/or photos.

Interior Papers – Uncoated Paper Stocks

Uncoated paper stocks are our most commonly used printed material. They are an excellent choice for family memoirs, fiction, poetry, children’s books, and more.

Weight & Color Best Used – page counts Best used – Binding types
50lb White/Natural Used for books that are 300 pages or more. Perfect bound, coil bound, litho wrap cover, Case bound.
60lb White/Natural Used for books that are less than 300 pages. Perfect bound, coil bound, litho wrap cover, Case bound.

Other Interior Paper Choices

If you are printing high end color photos such as coffee table style books, portraiture, art, or nature photography we can suggest other paper stocks as well. Please indicate on the quote form in the comment section.

Cover stock

These stocks are chosen here at Blitzprint, that is directly related to the paper stock that has been printed for the interior.

Cover Lamination

Lamination provides your cover some protection and longevity, the lamination type is a preference.

Gloss Laminate

  • Gloss laminate has a shiny appearance, reflective like a quality photograph print.
  • As a result, gloss really shines on covers with photographs or elaborately designed covers.
  • Does not show fingerprints on covers that display full solid dark colors.

Matte/Soft Touch Laminate

  • Soft-Touch Matte has a more muted appearance showing less glare.
  • Generally, soft touch displays better on covers with a smaller colour palate or patterns.
  • Adds a soft touch feel to the cover.

UV Spot Coating

  • For that extra something, consider UV Spot Coating.
  • A clear gloss image that works best with soft touch laminate.
  • UV Spot Coating slightly raises a defined image or text of your choosing.
