Paper Stock:

C1S (Coated 1 Side)
C1S is a paper that is treated with a gloss coating on one side while the other side is left with no coating, allowing you to write on it or print on it with an inkjet printer.

C2S (Coated 2 Sides)
C2S is a paper that is treated with a coating on both sides, either gloss, matte, or UV. Neither of these coatings are suitable for writing on.
Coating:
?
Gloss
Gloss coating is a fast-drying, water-based, protective coating that is applied in-line on press. Gloss coatings create a printed product that is resistant to fingerprints, rubs, and scuffs and lasts longer than average varnishes. It is not suitable for writing on.

Matte
Matte coating is less shiny and provides moderate protection against scratches and scuffs. It is suitable to write on but is not compatible with all types of pens and markers. This coating is compatible with some inkjet printers.

C1S (Coated 1 Side)
Treated with a gloss coating on one side while the other side is left with no coating, allowing you to write on it or print on it with an inkjet printer.

U.V. Coating
U.V. coating is a very high-gloss coating applied to the printed paper surface and dried on press with ultraviolet light. The premium high-shine coating makes the print durable and eye-catching, enhancing the depth of color and making it a popular option for marketing materials that need to gain immediate attention. Blacks shine, reds flush with pigment, and all colors are so vibrant they appear to jump right off the page. U.V. coated prints are also abrasion, chemical, and moisture resistant, providing a protective barrier against wear and tear caused by handling and display.
