We have a vast range of paper types to choose from depending on the content of your book. Our most popular paper types are below. 

80gsm Opaque – Good for nonfiction books and good for keeping the costs low. Opaque 80gsm is our cheapest paper and helps with cheap book printing if you are on a budget. 

100gsm Opaque – Also good for non-fiction books. As it is a heavier paper than the opaque 80gsm it is better for color images as there will be less show-through. It is more expensive than the opaque 80gsm but only by a little. 

80gsm Monken Book wove White – This is the standard paper for novels and fiction titles. It is a slightly off-white paper with a slightly rough/textured feel. It is also good for ‘bulking’ up the book as it is slightly thicker than the 80gsm and 100gsm opaque papers. 

80gsm Monken Book wove Cream – This is the same paper as the Book wove White but as the name suggests, this is the cream version. Again, this paper is mostly used for novels and for making the spine of your book bigger. 

100gsm Recycled – A popular paper for non-fiction titles. This is our recycled paper which is a white similar to the 100gsm Opaque but has a slightly rougher feel but is smoother than the Book wove papers. 

We also offer a range of coated papers from 115gsm to 170gsm which are good for printing photographs and high-quality images. We are able to print any number of pages in a plate section on the coated papers and then insert them into the book. This is a great option if you want to have the text printed on the nice Book woven paper and have some color images on 130gsm coated paper.
