High-Fidelity Printing on Uncoated Paper

From the Editor: An increasing number of photographers are also printing their images in books.  While we might know a lot about printing our images, most of us aren’t going to know much about what considerations go into printing books.  Friesens, a sponsor of NANPA’s 2019 Nature Photography Summit, is Canada’s largest printer of hardcover books.  Founded in 1907, Friesens is an employee-owned company that also operates Friesens Press, a self-publishing subsidiary.  In this article, Friesens give us a primer on paper choices and high-fidelity art books.  Their website and blog contain a lot more information.

 

We continue to see a growing number of high-fidelity art books, photography books, cookbooks, etc., on uncoated papers. While every job is treated with the same care, expertise, and attention to detail, we do know that certain markets/projects and customers have different needs and expectations.

If you are willing to spend extra money on special papers and print techniques, we know that your needs, expectations, and requirements are more than just having colour ink on paper.
