Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of paper works best for an inkjet printer?

Using the right inkjet printer paper can affect the quality of the finished product as well as how and where it can be used. Some of the primary features you need to consider when choosing printer paper include:
  • Weight— This corresponds to the thickness and stiffness of the paper. The heavier the weight, the thicker and stiffer it will be.
  • Finish and Shininess— Paper can be either coated or uncoated. Uncoated paper is non-reflective, which is the ideal choice for printer paper. Coated paper will have either a dull/matte or gloss finish. Dull/matte paper is smoother and more refined than uncoated paper, but it’s not as shiny as gloss paper.
You don’t just want to think about how you want the piece to look. You also need to think about how you’re going to use it, who is going to be handling it, and whether it will be mailed (because the weight of the paper can affect the cost of postage). You also need to think about whether it will be exposed to water, chemicals, or extreme temperatures.

What is the difference between inkjet printer paper and plain paper?

Inkjet paper has a tighter weave that keeps the ink from bleeding through the paper as it prints images and text onto the page. Plain paper is typically untreated and doesn’t have as fine a weave. So if you use plain paper on an inkjet printer, you could end up with a soggy sheet of paper and some bleed-through.

What is plotter paper used for?

Plotter paper is a special kind of paper that’s only used on plotters, which is a type of printer that’s used to print vector-type graphics. While its operation is similar to a standard printer, it works a little differently. A plotter has a special pen that moves across the paper, which is different than ordinary printer paper. Inkjet vellum plotter paper is the preferred choice for printing a large numbers of blueprints, because the print quality is much higher. And they can come in a variety of sizes.

How wide is plotter paper?

In the United States, the width of a plotter paper roll will be expressed in inches. Some of the popular widths of plotter paper include but may not be limited to:
  • 11 inches
  • 17 inches
  • 18 inches
  • 22 inches
  • 24 inches
  • 30 inches
  • 34 inches
  • 36 inches
  • 42 inches
These roll widths make it cost-effective and efficient to print large volumes of standard-size engineering and architectural drawings, as well as a number of wide-format office documents.

What thickness of paper will go through a printer?

Every printer has its own limitations with regard to paper thickness, which is set by the manufacturer to optimize the quality of your prints and to extend the life of the device. It’s based on Grams Per Square Meter (GSM), which refers to thickness of the paper or print media — starting from standard 70-90 gsm paper to business cardstock (which is 400gsm and over).
