What is paper stock and card stock?

The type of paper used for difference purposes is expressed in weight. In Australia we use the European system, in grammes per square metre (gsm or g/m2 or simply g).

The paper used for writing/printing (letterheads and such stationery) is generally between 80 to 120 gsm and is called the paper or text stock. Anything heavier than this is considered to be card stock, i.e. the paper used for business cards, postcards, greeting cards, etc.

Explain the difference between glossy and matt paper stock.

Coated papers are available in two finishes – glossy (shiny and smooth) and matt (flat and lusterless). Coated glossy papers reflect the light evenly so they are suitable for almost all types of printing jobs. Glossy papers have a good ink holdout, which is important for creating sharp, bright images.

Are the prices listed on the site final? How do I know the total cost?

No, the price list indicates basic prices of products against the speculative quantities. The prices are calculated with regard to the most basic paper/card types, sizes and single side printing. As you know, the final printing cost depends on many parameters: paper/card weights or thickness (gsm), glossy or matt finish, 2 or 4 colors, square or rounded corners, single or double side printing, quantity, destination shipping charges and the mode of transport. Please use the indicative prices for calculating the basic cost. If no further options are requested as you proceed, the basic price will apply plus and frieght that is attributed to the product.
