Namaste! My name is Pola Kolchinskaya. As a yogini and alternative medicine enthusiast, my life revolves around the pursuit of harmony of body, mind and spirit. Leading meditations in a women's circle, attending and organizing self-development workshops and exploring the depths of spiritual development are my daily practices. My passion for yoga has taken me to the most exotic corners of the world, including Bali, where the magic and energy of the place enhances the experience of yoga practice. The blog I run is a reflection of my life philosophy - sharing the joy of life. I love discovering new cultures, people, flavors and spaces, which inspires me to share it all with my readers. I believe that every trip, every workshop and every practice is a step towards a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us. My goal is not only to inspire people to live in harmony with themselves, but also to show what a multidimensional adventure life can be when we allow ourselves to reflect and breathe deeply.

The role of paper cannot be overestimated. Although today we increasingly use books, newspapers and other materials in digitized form, life without paper is impossible.

It is the primary form for recording content: whether poems by poets, school textbooks or official documents. Paper works well in many everyday situations, so it is worth taking a look at what the main types and functions of paper are.

Division of paper

The main parameters by which types of paper differ are its grammage and grade. Grammage is the main determinant of the hardness of paper. It is expressed in the number of grams per square meter. The higher the grammage, the more difficult it is to bend or tear the sheets.

Based on grammage, paper is divided into:

  • tissue paper: (the thinnest paper material) and blotting papers
  • paper proper: commonly used on a daily basis for writing and printing posters, documents and other materials, such as advertising
  • cardboards: although their bending and forming capabilities are limited, they can be printed on
  • cardboards: used in packaging; they are designed for digital printing only

Class is a designation indicating the durability of the paper. Class I and II paper is used for banknotes and important documents. Class III (cellulose paper) is used in the production of school notebooks and documents intended for frequent use. Class IV denotes special prints. Class V and VI sheets are used for book printing, and the last class VII is exclusively for newspaper printing.

Additional properties of paper, especially important for printing, are thickness, opacity (determines the degree to which the paper pierces the printed content on the other side), and whiteness and brightness.

Paper materials

There is a wide range of paper materials available in stationery stores, which differ in their properties and, consequently, in their application. In addition to drawing papers, the selection of which in these stores is the largest (these are drawing blocks, cut-outs, sketchbooks, carbon paper) we also have:

  • offset paper – this popular type of paper is used for creating documents. It absorbs ink well, can also be printed several times and is suitable for handwriting. It is used to create certificates, notebooks and business documents.
  • Chalk paper – is characterized by a smooth, glossy and pleasant to the touch surface due to the fact that it is coated with a layer of a mixture of pigment and glue. It is suitable only for one-time printing and is difficult to write on by hand. It is used in the advertising industry, as well as in the production of business cards, offer folders or catalogs in printing and printing houses.
  • Decorative papers – use different grammages. Among them you can find smooth papers (including cotton), embossed, metallized, pearl or transparent papers. A specific structure is distinguished by handmade paper.
  • Ecological papers – papers made from recycled materials are gaining popularity.

Paper and its purpose

Due to the structure of paper materials, there are also different groups of paper, which are used in various fields. These include printing, packaging, electrical or industrial-technical papers. Depending on their usefulness, the types of these groups are also distinguished: printing paper for newspapers or books, paper for sheet metal wrapping. Papers can also be refined by coating them with an additional layer – in addition to the already mentioned chalking, we also have gumming or paraffining. They can also be saturated with oils or paraffin, laminated (used for packaging) or printed as in the case of wallpaper.
