Q & A - How much does the paper I select for a job affect cost?
In a typical print job, paper accounts for 8-15% of the cost of the job.
Depending on the quantity ordered, making a change in paper may not affect the overall cost of the job by much. Ten years ago, there was a significant difference in the cost of printing in full color versus one or two ink colors. But with advancements in digital printing technology, that gap has been narrowed and full color printing has become affordable in almost any quantity.
