Double Sided Photo Paper - from Olmec, Innova, Tetenal & Hahnemühle
Can you Print on the Back of Single Sided Paper?
This is a question often ansked. Unless otherwise stated the revers side is uncoated. But it is good quality paper and prodcues good results sepecially in text. Do not use it for faithful photographic reporduction, though.
Some papers cannot be pinted on the reverse. This is vgenerally the ase with resin coated papers suchas the Olmec satin or gloss 240/260 gsm papers.
Album and Photo Book Sheets
Papers may also be scored for insertion into albums and photo books. OIf you are using the Pics Book System based on Unibind thermal binding you will not want any punching. However if you are using the OPUSalbums Photo Art or FlexAlbum ranges you will want 120mm punching. Other punching is available with ‘Photo Paper How YOU want it.’
The following double sided papers are ideal for albums
Greeting Cards and Promotional Literature
Double Sided paper is also important for cards -and documents whether as a single sheet promotion or information or as a greeting card.
For the former you may chose just to use a s tandard A4 sheet.
Or you might be more adventurous. For example our own current product guide is on A4 half folded along the long side. We salo have a leaflet "Photo Paper How YOU Want it" on 5/6 A4 so there is a flap which is visible whether the card is open or closed.
The same applies to greeting cards - why not look at the gate folds that we have especially if you start from a panoramic page.

However, as most cards do not ahve quality photos on both sides it is not necessary to use a double side coated paper. The most highly recommended paper for greeting cards is Innova or Olmec Soft White Cotton
