PAPER TEXTURES

What is the difference in paper textures like laid, linen, felt, column, and smooth?

What are paper texture options?

You can also have different texture papers.

Smooth:  Both coated and uncoated paper can have a smooth finish.
Linen: Has a rich texture and feel of natural linen
Laid: A type of paper having a ribbed texture
Felt: Has a textured finish to it and is great texture for holding ink
Column: Also has a ribbed texture

If you want paper that is smooth you could choose an uncoated paper or a coated paper that has either a matte or high gloss finish. You can also stop by Macon Printing and feel the difference.
