Color Copies Explained


Color copies


Getting Color Copies from Metro Printing feels like getting a chilled glass of your favorite beverage in a scorching hot desert. High quality, excellent customer service and lowest prices is like a breath of fresh air.

That analogy does not do justice to the value of our cheap prices. Our top-quality color prints are available as low as 9¢, making these among the best value in the industry. You won’t find that kind of value in the Reston – nay the whole Northern Virginia.

Getting the right product for your requirements comes down to cost vs. quality. While our least expensive copies can be produced on our 60lb text paper, we always suggest getting a higher grade paper to get the finest of prints, if your budget allows it. Whenever a print is double sided and a lighter weight paper is selected, the image of one side might sometimes be visible from the other side – That’s one of the major complaints that we get from our clients. One of the best suited papers to print on as per our suggestion is 70lb smooth text – It has enough weight to give the prints a crips clean look and cheap enough to not burn a hole through your pocket.

Then again, you might be loaded and have ton of money. Who are we to judge. If that is the case then go with our 80lb smooth text to get the rich thickness and extra clean and professional look for your color copies or maybe you want to go all crazy with it and opt for a 100lb gloss text to get that shiny look for your color copies.

And then there are times when you need to go all out with the heaviest of stocks because you need to hanf with the bad boys and get that rock solid look and feel for your color copies. Look no further, our selection ranges from 60lb cover stock, which is a lighter cardstock, and goes up to 100lb cover stock. They are named as such since they are regularly used as covers for books and presentations.

While we would put in our 1000% in making sure that your color copies are best based on your specific selections but that is only one side of the equation. The other one still resides with you…..which is making sure that you provide us with the high resolution file so our efforts in making you shine don’t fade away

What are bleeds?

Bleeds is a term used when either any design element either text or color is going all the way the edge of the color copy as opposed to getting printed with a white border all around. Color copies printed with bleeds tend to be a little more expensive than the ones printed without bleeds. In order to print color copies with bleeds, they are printed on a size bigger than the file itself and then are cut back down to the orginal size to give the effect of bleeds. This requirement to print on a higher size paper makes the print with bleeds a little more expensive than the one printed without bleeds.


What are most common paper types to print color copies?

The most common type of paper that is used for printing color copies is 60lb text. There are other paper types that are lighter and heavier than 60lb text. The one lighter than 60lb is 50lb text. Though it is the most cheapest of the paper types to print on, it also is the one that has the most propensity for an image to show through to the other side. 70lb and 80lb text stocks are used when quality of print is of utmost importance. Consequently they are also comparatively expensive to the 60lb text.
