Printing of newspaper is done on the newsprint, instead of the regular sized office paper. In fact, the newspaper print is thin, therefore much lighter in weight in comparison to the office paper. The average weight of newsprint comes in between the 40 to 57 grams per square meter, which supports the reason that printing on newspaper brings up a far clearer image in comparison to the pictures printed on standard sized paper. However, it is also necessary to understand here that printing on the newspaper print is not a reliable means if you want to keep the documents protected for a long time. The newsprint is not treated with appropriate chemicals, and after few months, the paper itself starts showing brittle and yellowish nature. The newsprint paper comes in variety of sizes, and in the days of digital printing, newsprint can be used in standard printer copy paper to get a very fine quality output.
The exciting part is that many online newspaper printing services use this non-archival paper. The newsprint has a typical off-white casting, which provides it quite a distinctive feel than a regular printing paper. Newspaper print is affordable in comparison to paper grades, which are put in use in printing of sales brochures and the glossy magazines. Furthermore, the newsprint is tough enough to pass through the rigors of web printing presses. The paper on which newspapers are printed are good for the four-color printing done on most ultra-modern printing processes.
