StandardStandards

To get an idea of a standard, think of your local newpaper. All of the standards we produce will have the same height (this is due to the cut-off on our press) but the width of the pages can vary depending on the width of the paper we use. Most newspapers these days are using 25" paper so each page is 12.5" in width. But we can run paper in many different widths to give you the product you are looking for. We typically stock paper as narrow as 22" and as wide as 35" giving you the choice of page sizes ranging from 11" to 17.5".

TabloidTabloids

A tabloid is a product with a page width of up to 11.375" and a height that can vary depending on what size paper we run the job on. We regularly produce tabloids that have pages that are anywhere from 11" tall to 17.5" tall. Not only can we produce tabloids that are complete reight off our press but if you are looking for a little cleaner product, we can send your job to our in-house bindery where we bind the spine and trim all three sides. It all comes down to what kind of product you are trying to create.

FlexisFlexis

What we call 'flexis' most people would probably just call a 'book'. Basically, a flexi is a product that is bound at the spine (it could be stapled or it could be glued) and is roughly 8.5" x 11" in size. And when we say "roughly" 8.5" x 11" we do mean roughly. The actual size of the largest flexi we can produce is 8.5" x 10.875". Depending on other factors (the binding style or does the image bleed off the edge for example) the final size can be even smaller than that. As with any job, please contact one of our representatives and discuss your particular job to work out the details of final size. Also, keep in mind that 8.5" x 10.875" is the largest size but if you want to produce a smaller product, that is not a problem.

Newsprint

Newsprint is the paper on which your local newspaper is probably printed. This is our most affordable paper and is ideal for many applications. While newsprint comes in only one shade of brightness it does come in several weights (paper weight is how thick or heavy the paper is) and sizes.

Hibrite

Hibrite is similar to newsprint in feel but gone through some extra steps at the paper mill to make it a whiter sheet. Hibrite is available in various degrees of whitness and weights as well as widths. One of our represetatives will help assist you in selecting the paper that is best suited for your job.

Book

Book paper is the heaviest uncoated paper we stock. This paper is often used for the printing of actual books, hence its name. This paper is a very white sheet and has considerable thickness or stiffness.

Coated

Coated stocks are a very white paper and have been specially manufactured to be a very smooth sheet. This is the type of paper you might associate with magazines. As with all of the papers we stock, it comes in various sizes and weights.
