The cardstock you use for your postcard printing project is a primary decision you will have to make. You can make your decision much easier with a little extra knowledge about your options. Here is a little.
• Commercial postcard printing paper is identified as one of two main categories – Coated or Uncoated (offset).
• Each main category is divided into sub-categories which are determined by weight – Text or Cover stock – with text being lighter than cover. The names are easy to remember when you think that the lighter pages of a book typically contain the text, and the heavier pages make up the cover.
Just knowing a little more of the terminology involved with postcard printing paper, your first postcard printing project may be a little easier.
