For easy writing, it's best to go with an uncoated or velvet paper stock.
Paper stocks with a gloss finish are well suited for grabbing attention with a flashy delivery, since the gloss helps colourful designs pop off the page.
Matte stocks are a good choice for a more subtle appeal, perhaps suggesting exclusivity.
Special coatings such as aqueous and UV further enhance printed promotions by adding a layer of brilliance and protection.
