Are you wondering if custom planner printing is a good idea? We have the information you need to decide whether to print or not.
For books that require more structure and sturdier binding, Wire-O Coil Bound Books are an ideal solution.
This method involves punching holes along the edge of the pages and inserting a metal wire through the holes to create a binding. The wire is bent at each end to prevent it from slipping out of the book, and the pages are allowed to turn freely around the wire. Black and white wire colours are available.
Wire-O coil binding is commonly used for books that need to lay flat when opened, such as workbooks, manuals, and calendars. It is also used for books that need to be able to rotate 360 degrees, like notebooks, reports, and planners that are often annotated. It is ideal for books from 12 to 400 pages, as the binding can support the weight of the pages without coming apart.
Uncoated text paper is a great choice for thinner, lightweight publications like novels, notebooks and manuals. When you touch it, you can feel the texture of the paper fibers directly, because there's no additional coating on top of the matte surface. That might not sound as fancy as gloss or silk paper, but the matte effect of uncoated paper actually makes reading and writing much easier.
When uncoated paper is used at heavier weights, it can actually feel super high-end and luxurious. With the right design and printing techniques, you can create a matte effect that many people prefer over glossy finishes. Plus, if you need to write on your book, uncoated paper is perfect.
The smooth finish of 100 lb. Uncoated Cover is a thicker paper great for booklet covers, brochures, or postcards that need to be filled out by hand. Just keep in mind that bright colors and images might look a bit muted on uncoated paper, so it's best for light coverage artwork.
Gloss text paper has a special coating that reflects light, which makes bright colors and bold patterns appear even more vivid and vibrant. Gloss paper is perfect for designs with full-color photographs, bright solids, or attention-grabbing graphics.
While gloss text paper is great for making your designs pop, it might not be the best choice if you need to include a lot of text. The shiny surface can sometimes make it more difficult to read pages of small print. However, if you're looking to create a promotional piece that really stands out, like a catalog or calendar, gloss paper is the way to go.
For cover pages, you can't go wrong with 100lb Gloss Cover stock. It's perfect for booklets and catalogs because the glossy finish is ideal for bold patterns and bright colors.
Are you looking for a paper stock that's somewhere in between glossy and matte? Look no further than Silk Text paper! This stock has a slight sheen to it that makes colors appear richer and more vibrant, but without the blinding shine of full gloss. Plus, it feels noticeably softer and smoother to the touch.
One of the best things about silk finish is its versatility. It provides an excellent base for crisp, easy-to-read typography, making it a great choice for designs with a lot of text. And unlike glossy paper, you can actually write on silk finish - although it's not quite as easy as uncoated paper.
100 lb. Silk Cover, with its silky matte finish and heavy, sturdy feel, is perfect for the covers of catalogs, booklets, postcards, and other promotional items.

Husky® Opaque is made from sustainably-sourced SFI certified forests. Not only does it offer good opacity to minimize show-through, but it also boasts reliable performance and outstanding results, with increased longevity to ensure your documents last.

Finishing options are limited to the outside cover, but they can still make a huge impact on the look and longevity of the book.
One popular option is lamination, which makes the cover tear-resistant, more durable, and water-resistant. Say goodbye to creasing, staining, and sun damage! Matte lamination offers an elegant and sophisticated finish with a more natural look, while velvet finish adds a flexible, soft feel that lightens colors and reduces contrast.
Gloss lamination makes writing and pictures appear more crisp and sharp. And for the ultimate "wow" factor, try gloss UV - a high-gloss finish that makes high-contrast images and photographs really stand out.
AQ Coating is a gloss, environmentally friendly, water-based coating that provides additional gloss and protection, and can be written on with a ballpoint pen.
