Get Better Results with Uncoated Paper

When working with uncoated papers, don’t be afraid to be bold with color. The key to great results is to use high-quality imagery, including photographs with vivid color and exceptional detail. You might also consider specifying a fluorescent color or using a touch plate to add intensity to a selected color in the design. Talk to your printer about what options might be available for your project.

As with most printed projects, the quality of the paper you choose can greatly affect the finished product. That’s because paper quality sends a clear message about the brand it represents; the finer the paper, the higher the perception of the brand.

Domtar offers a wide variety of uncoated papers, including our premium Cougar® Smooth paper for commercial printing. Known for its velvety feel, the Cougar® name has been associated with quality for more than 45 years. Lynx® is another high-quality uncoated paper brand that is well suited for high-volume, direct mail projects or projects with tighter budgets.

Here are some of our favorite designs printed on our Cougar and lynx Paper.  If you would like to be featured, submit your work to our Domtar Paper Gallery Collection.  You could be selected to as a feature in our Paper Matters Magazine.
