Quality Paper Stocks
Your choice of 3 quality paper stocks, plus free UV coating or lamination
expresscopy.com stocks are carefully chosen to survive the rigors of handling and mailing, meaning your piece will look just as professional in your customers' hands as it did when it first rolled off the press. Beware of competitors who may cut costs by using lighter or inferior stocks....it does make a difference!

Unlike some competitors, which will quote prices based on their flimsiest paper stock, and then sneak in add-ons charges for sturdier stocks later in the order process, expresscopy.com stands proudly by all 3 of our papers and gives you upfront pricing for each product/stock combination.
