Professional-looking printed graphics are essential for almost all brick-and-mortar businesses. To achieve a professional look, selecting the right paper quality is key. This is because the quality of paper directly impacts the final product's overall look and feel. By carefully selecting the right paper for a project or design, businesses can ensure their printed graphics look professional and high-quality.  

Read on as PaperTyger explains why they are the preferred choice for printed graphics. 


Why Paper Quality Makes a Notable Difference in Results

High-quality paper is essential for creating printed graphics that look professional and attractive. Since the quality of the paper can significantly impact the final print result, well-made paper is a worthwhile investment for businesses who want to be sure their printed graphics are of the highest standard. 

High-quality paper offers many benefits, including improved print quality, vivid colors, and sharper images. In addition, they are usually more durable than regular paper, enabling prints to last longer and ensuring that designs remain vibrant over time. Finally, the chemical composition of the paper surface has a direct impact on its printability, its gloss, and its waterproofing qualities. By investing in high-quality papers for printing graphics, you can be sure that your prints will look great, last a long time, and stand out from the competition. 


Choosing the Right Paper Material for Printed Design

Printed graphics can be enhanced or diminished depending on the type of paper used. Different types of paper have different characteristics that can affect how vibrant and sharp a printed graphic appears.  

Understanding how a paper type impacts printed graphics is essential for producing high-quality prints. Some common classifications of paper for printed graphics are: 

  1. Synthetic and/or Coated Papers: Higher cost investment but can provide better color quality and sharper images than uncoated papers. Synthetic and coated papers, however, require long drying times, special inks and aren’t compatible with all printing technologies. 
  2. Traditional uncoated papers: More cost-effective and easier to work with, but certain types may not produce as vibrant or sharp images as coated papers do. They tend to be less resistant to tears and exposure to the elements. 
  3. Laminate Papers: Cost-efficient and suitable for a wide range of applications where the integrity of the material are paramount. PaperTyger products, for example, are manufactured by a patented, solvent-free laminating process. This means PaperTyger’s paper/film/paper structure is designed to be as durable as synthetics but with the printing ease and cost-effectiveness of real paper. Essentially, the best of both worlds!

4 Benefits of Laminated Printer Paper

Uncoated paper surfaces are becoming increasingly popular for use in printed graphics, due to their ease of printing and reasonable price point. Uncoated paper surfaces provide a unique tactile experience that other materials cannot replicate, and their smooth texture still allows for vivid colors and sharp images.

PaperTyger’s patented laminate paper has a unique paper/film/paper configuration that provides the durability and longevity of synthetic paper without the need for long drying times and special printer setups. PaperTyger’s uncoated paper surfaces have several advantages over fully synthetic counterparts, including: 

  1. Cost Effective and Time Efficient: Since PaperTyger paper is reinforced from within, its uncoated surface doesn’t require special inks or setups.   
  2. Resistant to Fingerprints: Uncoated paper surfaces can resist a certain amount of handling without damage. PaperTyger paper is also resistant to grease and liquid, so your design won’t be damaged during shipping or handling. 
  3. Less Prone to Glare: Coated surfaces usually have an element of gloss to them, and this can make it harder to see graphics from certain angles. To ensure your graphics are vibrant and visible no matter what, uncoated surfaces are ideal. 
  4. Structural Integrety: Paper types with coated surfaces can tend to curl during the drying process. PaperTyger paper lays flat during the printing and drying process. This provides a major aesthetic advantage over coated papers. 

PaperTyger durable paper is the preferred choice for printed graphics because it includes all the benefits of synthetic or coated papers without many of the drawbacks. ​This paper allows for crisp and detailed images, from graphic designs to construction plans and maps.

Since it prints and converts like real paper (because it is), projects requiring durability and lack of exposure to the elements for long periods benefit from using PaperTyger paper. Furthermore, PaperTyger products are water-resistant, tear-resistant, grease-resistant, and just as durable as fully synthetic papers due to the inner layer of plastic film.
