Paper and ink are the two most commonly used materials for print media. Each printer delivers its own unique look, though all printers provide similar printing performance and results. They are most commonly delivered on standard sheet size printer paper, which is generally known as “brushed paper,” though they can also be delivered on newsprint (e.g. “non-brushed paper”). All printers can print paper that is of various sizes; however, some printers are specifically designed to print “large” (e.g. 9″ x 11″) documents, while others will print smaller (e.g. 1″ x 3″) documents. Each printer is optimized for a particular use. Some printers are able to deliver a larger volume of paper, such as 12″ x 16″ and sometimes larger; however, they can also deliver smaller documents, including 4″ x 6″ sheets.
Printer paper is also the most common type of paper to be used by most book publishers in production. Books printed on printer paper are frequently called “printed” books, although they could also be called “hardback” or “thin stock” books. Hardback books have thicker paper stock that is more expensive and often costs more to produce.
One main drawback of printer paper is its poor quality. When a printer cuts the paper stock (such as from a printer) to a precise size for a given book, the quality of the paper, particularly on the back of the book, often suffers. Paper stock is often changed from batch to batch as the printing processes are altered to incorporate new technology. The result of this changes are often uneven, blurry, misspelled, misspelled in difficult-to-read places or incorrectly sized, even when no change in size occurs. Even if the printing process does not change the paper stock, it is often easy to tell if the printer’s process has changed the quality of the paper. The printing process might be changed to use a heavier stock with thinner stock in order to increase the weight of the paper but that may have a similar effect on the quality of the paper.
In some instances, a publisher might have their own books printed by a printer. A book printed this way is known as a “book imprinted by”. In this case, the publisher uses a small press to press the paper. This leaves the paper in a very solid and stable state. It is usually the choice of a publisher because they do not need to worry about the quality of the paper, the paper is the only variable they need to worry about. This book does not have any markings or signature on the inside of the cover and it is the original book, no reprints and no second printing. This book could sell for a great price and is an exciting item for any book collector. You can pick one up at your local bookstore or online book store, or as a bundle with other rare book items.
