As technology improves, printing equipment is consistently adapted to allow different types of paper to be used while ensuring good results. Nevertheless, printing speeds have also increased and, more than ever, color printing is being used for most applications. And, as you know, printing in color is more demanding in terms of paper quality – ink absorption, waviness, ink drying time, among other factors.
Altogether, this means that paper quality needs to be adapted to the printer you have, the job you’re doing, and the purpose of the document (internal/external).
These factors should influence your choice of which paper to use.
