This paper is uncoated, so its surface smoothness is not much higher than that of coated paper. As a result, color saturation is not much higher than coated or matt-coated paper which is treated with clay or other coatings. So, carefully consider whether or not this choice of paper is best for your specific printing requirements before placing your order.
What Is "kg" of Paper?
This unit "kg of paper" is used to express paper weight or density when a stack of 1000 sheets (500 sheets in the US) is weighed. In the printing industry, this is called "ream weight." Technically, ream weight is calculated as follows:
actual sheet size x basis weight / basic size
Basis weight = weight of 500 sheets (ream) cut to a standard size
Basic size = standard size of paper used for defining basis weight
In more familiar terms, this means that printed paper products that do not allow or let only a little through are called "dense" or heavy, while products that let some light through are thought of as "lightweight."
Ream weight can be considered as a rough estimate for the thickness of paper. However, with some types of paper, thickness differs because of the paper manufacturing process even though they are the same brand and of same ream weight.
