A coated book paper with an appealing shade, ideal for hardcover books

The Lux product family is a coated, mechanical publishing paper for books, featuring excellent quality, good printability and luxurious shades.

With their natural colours and particularly suitable weights, the book publishing papers Lux and Lux Cream by Stora Enso are used for printing B/W text, especially books with many pages.

Lux features an even bluish-white shade, thickness, high bulk and brightness for CSWO, HSWO, sheet-fed offset and digital printing. 

Lux Cream by Stora Enso complements the Lux family with its creamy shade. Great when you’re looking for an antique or retro effect with creamy tint pages, and easy on the eyes. A coated mechanical publishing paper, it also boasts excellent printability and an even shade. 

Its surface provides excellent printing results and high-class image reproduction while at the same time retaining a natural feel. The paper’s properties include bulk, opacity and rigidity, making it ideal for high-quality four-colour books and many other types of books where you want to add a touch of luxury. Like all our papers, it is recyclable and made from wood procured from sustainably managed sources.

LuxCream comes in a grammage range of 60-90 gsm for HSWO, Cameron belt press, CSWO and sheet-fed offset printing.
