"kg" refers to the weight of 1000 sheets of stacked paper, based on paper size 788mmX1091mm. This is called "ream weight". We use this as a guide to understand the thickness of paper, however paper thickness can vary even within the same brand and same ream weight depending on the paper production process.

Special Paper Sizes

We are able to cut paper to suit any sized design. If you have a special size, please choose the paper size that is LARGER than the size you'd like to print. For example, if your design is 74x210mm, you would need to choose A5 (148x210mm) in order to accommodate that design. Please indicate the exact size you need in the notes box when placing your order.

APaper finishes

■ Coated

Glossy Paper
Gloss finish makes the paper shiny and reflective, making it great for printing pictures and illustrations. It's widely used for flyers, posters and brochures.

■ Matte Coated

A finish less shiny than coated and showing colors more vividly than matte, a nice choice for printing brochures. Since it is a bit more refined than coated, it's a very popular choice for our beauty salon customers.

■ Matte

Uncoated and not shiny paper making it very natural looking. Because of it's strength and opacity, this paper is ideal for envelopes, postcards, brochures and flyers.
