Paper Options for Every Purpose
Aside from the design and content of your brochures, another factor that plays a significant role in getting your message across is the choice of material. The type of paper can spell the difference in converting a sale or losing a customer. Each design element must work hand-in-hand in order to drive home the point you’re trying to get across. 48HourPrint.com’s tri-fold brochures are available in four different material options:
- 70 lb. Paper has twice the thickness of regular paper. It’s lightweight, affordable, and can be written on using a ballpoint pen or a permanent ink marker. These are best used for takeout menus especially for restaurants with a wide menu.
- 80 lb. paper has the same thickness of a magazine page. You can select between a matte coating or a gloss finish. Choose this material for general purpose use.
- 100 lb. paper is our most popular choice for brochure material. It’s light enough to easily leaf through but substantial enough to hold a premium look. Add a matte finish for an elegant, subdued look while a glossy coat best highlights image-heavy designs.
- 10 pt. cardstock is the thickest material available for brochures. Similar in feel to book covers, this is best suited for premium products and high-end goods, such as exclusive club memberships and extravagant gift packages.
