We're Paper People

We care greatly about both the quality and environmental impact of the papers we offer. Learn more about our paper choices below.

Softcover Book Pages

100% Post-consumer Waste Recycled Paper

Our Softcover interior book pages are made of 100% recycled text stock paper. We’re so proud to be one of the first photo book companies to feature this progressive paper in our books, and know you’ll feel good about it too. This paper is acid-free, FSC Certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, and manufactured with wind power, all while providing outstanding print performance.

Because it’s made of 100% post-consumer fiber, there may be small specs that can show up in the paper. While barely visible, we see these as tiny beauty marks of a better choice for the environment.

This paper is featured in all interior printed pages of our softcovers, including the Color Series Photo Book, Instagram Friendly Book and Mini Photo Book.

Layflat Album Interior Pages

Mohawk proPhoto LUSTRE + Superfine Eggshell

Our Layflat Photo Albums are printed with your choice of either Mohawk proPhoto Paper in Lustre finish or Mohawk Superfine paper in Eggshell finish. Mohawk proPhoto paper, engineered for use on digital presses, is an eco-conscious alternative for those who love the look of traditional silver halide photographic printing. The Mohawk Superfine paper – renowned for its textured eggshell finish – is the same paper made popular by our prints, calendar and softcover photo books.

With an overall page thickness of .04", each layflat page is made from multiple ultra-thick pieces bound together, resulting in rigidity that's built to last. These papers are acid-free and FSC Certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, ensuring the responsible management of the forests that produce these materials. Artifact Uprising is proud to feature these two paper types in all of our Layflat Photo Albums.

Hardcover Book Pages

100% Recycled Matte + Satin Lustre

With our Hardcovers, you have the choice of either Recycled Matte or Lustre interior pages. If the Recycled Matte looks familiar, it’s because it’s the same 100% post-consumer material that’s used in our Softcover Photo Books (see above), while the Lustre paper option achieves a lightly sheened look, typical of familiar satin prints.

Whichever you opt for, know that it’ll be sustainably sourced and FSC Certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, as well as offer beautiful print performance that honor your photos.

These paper options are featured in all interior printed pages of our hardcovers, including the Photo-Wrapped Hardcover, Travel Photo Book, Annual Photo Book, and Hardcover Wedding Book.
