If you would like to see and feel the different types of paper we offer, order our paper sample book. The paper sample book is the perfect reference for occasions stationery. This book contains samples of paper that range from text weight to cover stock to colored paper and specialty stocks. It also displays some of our unique printing options, such as white ink printing and silver foil paper.
If you want to see your specific design file printed on the paper stock of your choice, you may not need to order an entire sample book. Simply order a hard proof and we’ll send you a copy of your printed piece as you should expect to see the final product.
We also offer a Color Reference Chart. This makes it possible to compare the colors you see on your monitor to what will be printed on the paper. Click here to download the chart. See our Color Accuracy Page for more information.
Our Pantone Color Conversion Chart allows for simple Pantone-to-CMYK color conversions. We print with a CMYK process at Smartpress.com and offer select Pantone colors. The Pantone Color Conversion Chart comes in handy for printing a wide range of additional Pantone colors.
To order more than one sample, just add your current selection to the cart, then select "continue shopping" and return to this page to add further samples as required.
