What is the difference between coated and uncoated stock?


The simplest answer is price and quality. Uncoated stock is rough, porous and not ideal for documents heavy on graphics or images. Uncoated stock is usually used for newspapers and other text heavy and mass-produced projects. It is also less expensive than coated stock. The main feature of coated stock is its smooth glossy finish. Coated stock is a good option if you have a larger budget and want your document to stand out. It is ideal for making graphics or images look as sharp as possible.
