Paper Stocks and Book Production

In the hands of a professional book designer, print on paper becomes something special. It activates the senses of touch, sight and even smell. It can convey to the reader a greater respect for an authors labour, appreciation of their talent and ultimately enjoyment of the reading experience.

For many of us the feel of a printed book is an absorbing and pleasurable experience. Our first encounter of the textural surface and tactile quality of paper is often seen as the decisive winning factor of printed books as opposed to electronic devices.

A printed book can mean and do so much more than its digital counterpart, as it communicates to the reader the care and effort of the author. Furthermore it allows good design to leap off the screen into a conveniently portable, three dimensional, and tactile form of entertainment and knowledge.

Carefully matching paper stocks to the style of publication, can greatly enhance the readership experience, and as scientifically proven, ensure your message is ultimately more memorable. It can transform a good design into a great design.
