High quality printing papers available in a multiplicity of colors and finishes. Although there are "text" papers with plain finishes, the use of the word "text" is linked to characteristic textured finishes. As applied in the printing-writing paper industry, the term "text paper" does not apply to book publishing papers.
Text papers are defined as fine, high quality uncoated papers. Typically, they are made in various colours, with numerous textures and a variety of surface finishes. Text papers are made from high-grade bleached wood pulp, cotton fibres or alternative non-wood fibre. Recycled sheets include high quality recycled waste paper and post-consumer waste pulp, in addition to bleached wood pulp, cotton fibres or alternative non-wood fibre.
