80 lb Gloss Text: Your Everyday Glossy Paper
|June 4, 2014||Filed under Paper Guide||
80 lb Gloss Text is a fantastic go-to glossy sheet for print projects: it’s thin, elegant, and has a fantastic price. Print projects ranging from sell sheets to magazines to catalogs can all take advantage of the pragmatic elegance of the 80 lb gloss text.
80 lb Gloss Text is a pragmatic and elegant sheet of paper
I consider 80 lb Gloss Text both “pragmatic” and “elegant” because of its simplicity. I’m going to illustrate its qualities by comparing it with the other sheets of glossy sheets that MGX Copy has in our inventory.
Many of MGX Copy’s customers love printing their projects on glossy sheets—sheets of gloss text give off a distinct professional quality. Many customers must have their prints on glossy sheets. The question is—what kind of glossy sheet do they want to use?
If you want to print on a glossy, standard (by standard, I mean “non-cardstock”) sheet, MGX Copy currently provides 3 sheets.
Do you want:
- 60 lb Gloss Text,
- 80 lb Gloss Text, or
- 100 lb Gloss Text?
Choosing between the 3 types of Gloss Text at MGX Copy
For many print customers that want a thin gloss sheet, 80 lb Gloss Text is a good balance amongst the 3 gloss text options. 80 lb Gloss Text is also the cheapest sheet among the three options.
60 lb Gloss Text is our ultra-thin glossy sheet, most frequently used for magazines. Because it is typically a specialty sheet, it is more difficult to find than 80 lb Gloss Text. Because of its ultra-thin qualities, it also requires special handling and production procedures at our printing facilities.
100 lb Gloss Text is our premium glossy standard sheet. As you might expect, it is the thickest of the 3 sheets. When you hold a booklet printed on 100 lb Gloss Text, it feels weighty and substantial in your hands. However, many customers prefer a thinner sheet of gloss. It feels more delicate to their touch, and makes for thinner, lighter books.
