• Basis Weight – make sure you know what the recommended paper specs are in terms of weight for equipment you’re using. It is suggested that using a minimum weight of 24/60# paper will optimize your production.
• Coated vs. Uncoated – be mindful if preprinting on coated. The heat from a laser fuser can blister coating which may cause damage to the digital device.
• Finish – textured and embossed finishes may pose a challenge, although some paper manufacturers are now making grades expressly for digital with embossed finishes like linen. A sheet with a smooth, level surface will allow for the even transfer of toner, preventing voids or broken letters.
• Samples – make sure you test the sheet to ensure compatibility on the digital equipment.
