Solopress is another company that I have had paper samples off. They have been good to look at as it shows me either how different or similar the paper types are between companies.
Solopress had a more thicker quality of paper, with a little less selection than my other sample booklets. Although they have a more concentrated variety of paper types, which would have made some of my work more bold and interesting, but then the other half the paper types just wouldn’t suit my type of work. Which unfortunately meant that across the board my work would not have been suited to the paper types this company offered. Which was a shame.
Over the last couple of weeks I have been looking at various websites to find free paper samples to get an idea of what I want to print my photo book on. Flyer alarm has so far sent me the most useful sample booklet. It has shown me all sports of papers from metallic to textured paper. I have the problem now that there are several paper types that I want to look at with my prints. I also have to think about if the university printing facilities, do they possibly have the same or similar printing paper that could be more cost efficient. As another problem I have had with paper costs is that they can be extortionate. Which is a flaw with this company the samples are great and have so many options to consider, but what will work best for my book.
