Generally refers to paper that is manufactured specifically for use on offset presses. It is characterized by good internal bonding, high surface strength, freedom from fuzz, pick-resistance and freedom from curl. This paper must be relatively impervious to water.
An uncoated or coated sheet specially suited for offset printing.
Uncoated stock - suitable for offset printing - one of its abilities is to ward off water absorption.
Any paper primarily suited for offset printing; also known as book paper. Can be coated or uncoated with a vellum or smooth finish. Characterized by strength, dimensional stability, lack of curl and freedom from foreign surface material.
A general term for stock suited for offset printing, including both uncoated wood-free and wood pulp papers as well as uncoated recycled papers that have been calendered or machine-finished.
Paper type that is uncoated and slightly heavier than bond.
Collective term for printing papers with special properties for offset printing. For instance, the paper must not emit dust during processing and must be pick resistant. Offset paper may be woodfree or mechanical, coated (matt, glossy, embossed) or uncoated and is processed in sheets as well as in reels.
