Coated or uncoated?  Gloss or matte?  

Paper selection is critical in book manufacturing because it can affect the visual appeal of a book, as well as the weight, feel, and “bulkiness”.  We stock about 2 million pounds of “house” paper in our warehouse at all times, and we can help you choose the right option for your project.
