What are the most popular types of paper used for flyers?

Certainly! Here’s a response discussing the most popular types of paper used for flyers, written in British English and following the format you’ve specified for Print Harbour. 

When it comes to flyer printing, the choice of paper is crucial as it affects the appearance, feel, and durability of the flyer. At Print Harbour, we offer a range of paper types to suit various needs and preferences. Understanding the most popular types of paper can help you make an informed choice for your flyers:

Glossy Paper

Glossy paper is favoured for its shiny finish that makes colours pop and images stand out. It’s ideal for flyers with high-resolution photos or graphics. This type of paper is commonly used for promotional and marketing materials that aim to attract attention.

Matte Paper

Matte paper offers a more subdued finish compared to glossy paper. It minimises glare and is easier to read under strong lighting. This makes it a great choice for flyers with a lot of text or for a more sophisticated, understated look.

Recycled Paper

For environmentally conscious businesses, recycled paper is a popular option. It’s made from post-consumer waste and has a slightly off-white, natural look. Using recycled paper for your flyers can demonstrate your commitment to sustainability.

Heavyweight Paper

Heavyweight paper, often referred to as cardstock, is thicker and more durable than standard flyer paper. This type of paper is perfect for flyers that need to withstand more handling or for when a premium feel is desired.

Uncoated Paper

Uncoated paper has a natural feel and is easy to write on, making it suitable for appointment reminders, feedback forms, or other interactive flyers. It offers a classic and elegant appearance.

At Print Harbour, we understand the importance of selecting the right paper for your flyers. Each type of paper we offer has its unique advantages, and our team can guide you in choosing the most suitable one for your specific needs.
