Once used widely for the printing of books, carrier sheets and stationary etc. offset papers have, in recent times, become more and more popular for magazines, brochures and catalogues.
· They are generally wood-free (i.e. the wood pulp has been bleached to remove the yellow lignin) so are very white
· They are generally uncoated so provide a non-reflective surface that is easy to read.
· They tend to be bulky for their weight.
· They can be used in both web and sheet-fed printing.
Although not necessarily a cheaper option, the use of these papers provides a natural or “earthy” feel to a publication, thus making them attractive to a wide range of applications.
The printed image on these papers also tends to be softer and less harsh, and again can come across as more natural ,enticing and honest.
