Coated papers are generally available in two finishes – glossy (shiny and smooth) and matte/dull (low sheen and lusterless). Coated glossy papers are suitable for almost all types of printing jobs. Glossy papers print and reproduce very well, which is important for creating sharp, bright, clean images, printed text, and graphics.
Matte / Dull coated finishes also print very well, but the images will not "pop" as much off the sheet and look more subdued. Many people prefer this "matte" look and it is becoming more popular.
Uncoated papers print well and are suitable for many types of projects. These papers have no sheen whatsoever and the printing will be somewhat dull and subdued. Many types of jobs are suited for uncoated stock and it has a unique look and feel that some people prefer. In the past, almost all business cards were produced on uncoated cover. (copy paper is an example of uncoated paper)
Regardless of what paper you choose you can be sure that our equipment can print on it well and we will uphold the highest quality standards when producing your project.

An 8.5 x 11" file will not reduce proportionally to 5.5 x 8.5"
The 8.5" dimension needs to go to 5.5", that is a 64% reduction in size.
The 11" dimension needs to go to 8.5", that is a 77% reduction in size.
As you can see the reduction size is not the same, so in order to reduce your file to 5.5 x 8.5" we would have to distort the artwork (stretch one dimension and shrink the other.) It can make things look very strange. One option (other than sending us the artwork at the size of the book you want) is for us to reduce the book to a custom size 6.5" x 8.5". We can reduce your 8.5 x 11" artwork 77% and it will be 6.5" x 8.5" that is with NO distortion. In general that size book is $50.00 more than the prices on the website for standard 8.5 x 11"
