What is the difference between B&W, Premium Color and Standard Color?

Jeffrey Montgomery -

Curious about the difference in B&W vs Premium Color vs Standard Color books?


Black and White Books

Black and White books are printed on 50# white paper and use inkjet technology.


Color Books

Standard Color and Premium Color both use a thicker 70# white paper, which has higher page opacity.

The primary difference between Standard Color and Premium Color books is the process with which the ink is printed.

  • Standard Color – Printed with an inkjet printer on 70 lb/104 gsm white paper

  • Premium Color – Printed with Digital Color Print Engine Technology on 70 lb/104 gsm white paper

Here's a visual comparison of Standard Color and Premium Color:
