Uncoated papers do not have this coating and thus are more porous. The ink/toner saturates into the paper and has a softer, warmer appearance. Great for halftones

Coated papers have a coating on them (typically clay), so they’re “sealed.� This restricts the amount of ink/toner that is absorbed into the paper, allowing the ink to sit on top of the paper, in a crisp defined dot. Has a crisper, sharper finish, great for solid colors


When should I use Uncoated Paper?

Uncoated paper is exactly what it sounds like – paper that has no extra coating or paper finishing. Since there is no coating, there is no glare on the surface. This makes it ideal for prints that have a lot of text or reading materials. . . All bond stock paper is uncoated. Great for products with lots of white, muted backgrounds and soft colors


When should I use Coated Paper?

Coated stock has a surface sealant (think of varnish on wood). This is made up of various liquids and clay (and other substances). Coating allows ink to sit up on top of the surface of the paper without seeping into the paper fibers. Halftone dots and type are therefore very crisp and controllable during the printing process. Great for stuff like this , solid colors with no gradient, photos and generally heavy coverage of print
