Also called as wood-free paper or offset paper, uncoated paper is manufactured using wood mixed with a few chemicals. Ideally, the uncoated paper is used for offset printing of text books and magazines. Unlike coated paper, uncoated paper has a surface that is nonglare, giving it a quite natural appearance. Uncoated paper is perfect for reading and writing, and this is the reason why most student books and notebooks use uncoated paper for the interior.
Uncoated paper is available in different thickness levels, like, 70gsm, 80gsm, 100gsm, 120gsm, and 140gsm. Generally, 70gsm, 80gsm, and 100gsm offset paper are used for printing student books, whereas, 120gsm offset paper is preferred for printing envelopes or brochure covers. As far as hardcover end sheets or catalog covers are concerned, a 140gsm offset paper would be a perfect choice.
