For quick-copying, the following paper colors are available in addition to white. Because colors on the computer screen are approximate, you may need to look at the sample books available at the front counter if paper color is critical to your job.

In addition to these typically-used 20-pound memo papers, there is the heavier index-weight paper available in the same colors plus cherry red and gray. There is also a line of Astrobright papers available in flashy colors.

For books printed on the offset press, the standard paper choice is 70-pound white opaque text. Other text and cover-weight paper comes in a variety of colors that you can choose from sample books at Publications and Printing. Most paper stocks are available for second-day delivery to the printshop, and other paper is available from companies that deliver once or twice a week.

Both Keith Harris and Jeff Marlow are our resident experts in paper, including what is available, cost, delivery times and general advice on what to select and why. If you have a question, they or any of the office staff will be happy to assist you.
