Coated Paper


Coated paper is a type of paper which has been treated with a surface sealant, typically clay, chalk or similar substances.

This coating provides a smooth finish, enhancing the paper's look and feel.

The surface treatment also improves print quality, as it allows for more ink to sit on the surface, resulting in sharper images and brighter colours.

Coated paper is widely used for high-quality print jobs such as Brochures, Magazines, and photography prints.
