There are many classifications of paper types, and different paper have different requirements in printing industry. Printing industry application is also different. We will introduce the application of four different paper products in printing industry.


1. Coated Paper

Coated paper is made by coating a layer of white paste on the base paper and calendaring after coating. Coated paper has a smooth surface and high whiteness. Coated paper has better absorption and acceptance of ink, and is usually used to print the covers and illustrations of high-end books and periodicals, various exquisite product advertisements, product packaging boxes and trademarks. There is also a matte coated paper, the surface is not reflective, the pattern printed on this paper will be less colorful than the ordinary coated paper, but the pattern is more delicate and more high-end. The printed picture has a three-dimensional effect, so this coated paper can be widely used in the printing of pictorials, landscape paintings, exquisite wall calendars, and photographs of people.



Generally, the production of high-end packaging boxes is made of cardboard, which has good hand feel, color, and dot transfer conditions. Generally, the reason why designers choose custom paperboard is the stiffness and strength of the cardboard is excellent. There are many types and colors of cardboard. Designers choose the appropriate cardboard according to different needs. Cardboard is usually used in gift boxes, cosmetic boxes, wine boxes, tags, medicine boxes and high-end products.

This kind of paper has a certain stiffness and surface strength, especially the coated white paper has a coating, so it is not easy to penetrate the ink when printing, and it is more ink-saving. However, this paper has poor flatness, and things that are obviously printed look rougher and slower to print than paper jams.


4.Corrugated Cardboard

Corrugated cardboard is also one of the commonly used papers in printed with logo paper packaging box, but because the color of corrugated cardboard itself is dark, color saturation must be considered when choosing the printing color, otherwise, there will be very large color difference between the actual color printed and the expected color. In addition, there is another important factor that controls the color index, that is the ink viscosity. The printing of corrugated cardboard is mainly used in display racks in various industries such as food, clothing, sporting goods, IT products, daily necessities, automotive supplies, music, books and other industries.
