Is Colored Paper Printer Friendly?
Many types of colored paper can work with a range of copy machines, laser printers, and inkjet printers. Colored printing paper produces crisp and clear text and image output. When choosing colored printer paper, consider the weight. Lightweight paper is suitable for printing documents at high printing speeds. It also works well with most inkjet and laser printers without jamming. Lightweight colored printer paper is also thick enough to ensure prints come out neatly, without bleed-through.
Choose heavy-stock colored printing paper when printing certificates, flyers, and calendars. Heavy-weight colored printer paper offers high resistance to tears and is suitable for covers and menus. This type of colored printer paper is also known to have high opacity.
What Different Finishes Are Available for Colored Paper?
Colored paper comes with smooth or textured finishes. Smooth colored copy paper produces even prints and shows off saturated colors well. Choose this type of colored paper when printing pictures or graphics.
Consider textured colored paper for arts and crafts, as these add character to paintings and can create a matte look when light reflects off the paint unevenly. Textured colored copy paper is suitable for different craft projects, such as work with pastels. Their rough surfaces offer a convenient medium for paint or glue to bond.
