Paper – the thin material mainly used for writing, printing, drawing on or used in packaging. Produced by pressing together moist fibers, typically pulp derived from wood, rags or grasses, then drying them into flexible sheets. Paper is a versatile material with many uses. Whilst the most common is for writing and printing on, it is also used in many cleaning products, in a number of industrial and construction processes, and even as a food ingredient.
But what type of paper do you use: Wove, Smooth, Laid, Linen, Laser, Coated, Uncoated, Coated One Side, Coated Two Sides. What Weight, Opacity and Brightness. Do you need Offset, Cover, Tag or Index stocks, it can go on and on.
Me, I like things a bit different like the paper sculptures of Jeff Nishinaka.
